2020 Toyota Camry: Review, Specs and Price in UAE

15.1KViews

The 2020 Toyota Camry is a five-door mid-size family sedan car that is known and sold globally. This car was initially produced in 1982 by the Japanese manufacturer and since then has been progressively increasing in demand. Camry, currently in its 8th generation has created an excellent reputation as the most reliable and family safe sedan. For 2020, the car is available in the following trims:

2.5L S
2.5L SE
3.5L SE+
3.5L LTD
3.5L Sport

I am currently reviewing the 3.5L Sport, which is sporty and the highest specs among all the trims. Hence, acceleration on this car is done with little to no effort. This car is flawless, driving this car within the city or the highway is a delight. This vehicle is equipped with dampers supported by stiffer springs that lower the car towards the ground. Lowering the vehicle increases the shock absorption while driving over any bumps or obstacles on the road. This vehicle can be driven on rugged terrain, but I would not recommend it. The wide chassis bracing and lightweight wheels keep the car grounded at sharp high-speed turns. Furthermore, the steering provides excellent response and feedback. However, I would expect a better response from the brakes, but this does take a while getting used it. 

Toyota Camry Specs: 

Engine: 3.5L V6, 6-Cylinder, 24-Valve DOHC, VVT-i
Horsepower: 298 Bhp
Torque: 356 Nm
Drive System: Front Wheel Drive
Transmission: Automatic

The trims start from a 2.5L to 3.5L. I am currently driving the 3.5-liter V-6 8-speed AT that produces a 298 horsepower. Since this is a sports version, the acceleration is incredible. This vehicle’s engine can push a 0-100 km/hr in flat 6.3 seconds with a top speed of 235 km/hr. The fuel economy measures 7.00 kmpl for the city, while 9.78 kmpl for the highway. Compared to other vehicles, this vehicle is not as fuel-efficient. 

Exterior:

A unique aerodynamic body complements the 2020 Camry’s exterior. This full-size sedan’s design gets everyone’s heads turning. The hood is long and stretched, giving it a bird beak-like shape. The body has a low clearance making it look sportier than its previous models. The hood and bumper seamlessly fit together bare minimum gap with a narrow grille. This small grille is shaped V with the chrome logo flashing right at the center. 

The LED headlights are narrow and thin, which run over the 18-inch alloy wheels. This trim is the highest among all the other levels. 

The car door is equipped with electric mirrors and chrome door handles with match the paint.The rear includes a short spoiler and optional quad exhaust.

Interior:

The Camrys interior is both spacious and downright luxurious. 

The dashboard is fashionably designed to make everything glamorous and covered with premium materials. Furthermore, it is covered with a combination of soft-material, wood panel accent, and leather. 

The steering is wrapped with soft leather for a comfortable grip while driving. Just behind the steering wheel, the gauge cluster is 7″ TFT displays essential information of the engine such as fuel economy, speed, and maintenance messages.

The seats in Toyota Camry are covered with soft synthetic leather that is red in color. These are specially made for the sport trim and provides absolute seating comfort. Additionally, the guards on their sides of the seats prevent you from tossing on sharp turns.

The height and legroom can be well adjusted to your satisfaction with power levels located on the side. You also have the option of adjusting the lumbar support for a comfortable experience. The front and rear seats have ample room for tall passengers to stretch their legs.

The center console is wide and has a very fashionable minimalist design. The console has a few buttons to operate, and most of it covered with a black gloss sheet. 

Just below the airconditioning vent is an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment center that includes features such as Bluetooth, and phone-based GPS navigation. Apple Carplay and Android Auto features are not available. The console connects to a six-speaker audio system that is the standard setup. The console displays a birds-eye-view, as well as several camera angles to make parking easier.

Every Camry has two USB charge ports located right next to the gear. Just beside the gear are three buttons to switch the car mode from Sport to eco. There is also an electronic parking brake that can be activated by pull the lever. 

The capacity of the trunk is 16.1 cubic feet of cargo. The rear seats have a standard 60/40 split, folding them down grants you access to more space. The trunk and large and can comfortably accommodate two large bags.
