Currently reading: Revamped Toyota Camry launched in New York
Substantially revised Camry gets new kit, sharper styling and tweaked suspension for the 2015 model year

Only three years into the model cycle, Toyota revealed a dramatically refreshed Camry saloon at the New York motor show.

With strong competition from the Ford Fusion – the domestic version of the Mondeo – and others in the USA, Toyota needed to up its game with the Camry. Hyundai’s reveal of the latest Sonata in New York adds to the need for this update by Toyota.

We've driven the new Camry - take a look

Toyota sold 408,000 Camry models in American in 2013. If the Camry was its own brand, it would crack into the top 10 selling makes in the States. It’s clear the Camry is a very important car for the Japanese company.

All the exterior panels bar the roof have been changed on the 2015 Camry and there are nearly 2000 new parts. The chassis is reinforced with new spot welds, improving rigidity.

The suspension has also been fully retuned and the track is slightly wider, by 10mm. Toyota claims that the new aggressive grill is "all about attitude", while LED headlights are now offered to further improve its looks.

Inside, a new centre stack is fitted along with other enhancements and refinements. Toyota claims a large improvement in regards to wind and road noise. One unique option is an available wireless charging system for smartphones

Engine offerings are carried over. Two petrol engines – a 2.5-litre inline four and a 3.5-litre V6 – as well as a hybrid powertrain are available. Both conventional engines utilise a 6-speed automatic. The hybrid version features a CVT.

The refreshed 2015 Camry is built in America, in the state of Kentucky, and it goes on sale in autumn.

Not bad

It kind of reminds me of the Camry circa-2000 that had a sharper front and rear than other generations. I wish they would do something about the transmission though. I have a Venza with the V6 and shifts are slow at best and the option to control the changes with the stick are an insult to anyone's intelligence. The power of the V6 is wonderful but it needs a transmission to match it!
