True to their word, Toyota revealed a new and more exciting version of the Camry, America’s best-selling car, at the New York International Auto Show. Notwithstanding the fact that it was the old Camry’s featureless design brought it such huge success, they have given the new model not only a sporty appearance, but also sport suspension.

One might argue that Toyota is trying to attract new customers to the Camry with these changes. But these changes will not only scare off the majority of the traditional Camry buyers, they will also put the car up against some pretty formidable rivals. So it might not work out just as well as they are hoping. Still, there is no denying the new model looks a lot nicer than the previous versions.

Every single panel of the 2015 Toyota Camry, except for the roof, has been changed to look sportier and more aggressive. The interior too is upgraded with premium, soft-touch materials and new instrumentation with intuitive controls, and so are the chassis and body structure with new spot welds retuned suspension.

So besides the aggressive new looks and the refined interior, you get more responsive handling thanks to a multi-link arrangement at the rear and a stiffer body structure and a re-tuned electric steering system. Still, it’s not all sport/sport. The new car also benefits from a quieter cabin and improved NVH levels.

2015 Toyota Camry also introduces two new trim levels, the sporty XSE and the eco-minded Hybrid SE. The new XSE trim offers a unique mesh grille and fascia treatment as well as 18-inch wheels, unique shock absorbers, firmer bushings, higher rate coil springs, and unique EPS tuning. The Hybrid SE is tuned for smoothness and better ride quality.

The engine lineup includes the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 as before, plus the 2.5-liter unit with Hybrid Synergy drive matched to an E-CVT in the Camry hybrid. Onboard safety features include Lane Departure Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Auto High Beams, and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
