2016 Toyota Camry Overview (See Available Styles)

  • New Special Edition trim available for 2016
  • Major styling changes last year
  • IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award winner (models with front crash prevention)
The 2016 Toyota Camry got major changes last year which updated the outside with new styling and  the inside with new materials and new technology features.

Now for the new model year, Toyota has introduced a Special Edition trim which will make a limited run of 12,000 units for 2016. The Special Edition adds unique 18-inch black alloy wheels, a power moonroof, smoked taillights, blue contrast stitching, power front seats, navigation, push button start, Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, and Special Edition badges on the floormats and exterior. Also updated for 2016 is the base LE trim, which now features a 7-inch display as standard equipment.

Changes last year added all new sheet metal, with all of the body panels being replaced except the roof. Up front the Camry features a giant front grille that flares out as it gets lower giving the sedan a new visual signature. The grille is black in all applications, but on the “sporty” SE and brand-new XSE trims get an attractive honeycombed treatment. The headlights and taillights have also been reworked, with halogen headlights standard and standard LED daytime running lights for the XSE and XLE (LED headlights are optional).

Under the hood, the Camry features the same engine options as last year. The base engine is a 178-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while those who want more power can opt for a 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that drives the front wheels. With the powertrains being unchanged, the Camry’s fuel economy is also unmoved: 25/35 mpg city/highway on four-cylinder models and 21/31 mpg with the thirstier V-6.

Inside, the Camry’s restyled center console, updated technology, and improved cabin materials give it an air of refinement. Standard features include a 60/40-split folding rear seat, power front seats, air conditioning, and an Entune audio system that accepts voice commands and adds a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, USB port, and Bluetooth connectivity. Higher trim levels add leather upholstery, automatic climate control, navigation, and a wireless charging pad that is compatible with many smartphones.

The Camry offers plenty of available safety techonology, including adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system that can automatically apply the brakes to avoid a front collision, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. A rearview camera is newly standard on all trim levels as well, along with ten airbags, electronic stability control, and antilock brakes.
