Clash of the Camrys: Old vs. new


The Toyota Camry is an upscale mid-size sedan known for its comfort and convenience features. Over its many iterations,  the Camry has been known for its top-tier amenities and business-oriented look.

Interested to know whether it’s best to invest in the old or the new Camry? Check out this Toyota Camry face-off to find out.

1. A new modern exterior

One of the striking differences between the old and the new Toyota Camry is their looks. The previous-gen Camry had a more tame look with a relatively large frowning two-part grille. The long upper part adjoins the LED lights that flank the Toyota logo in the middle.


The current-gen Camry still retains that clean look but now has a larger grille. The upper part that still connects both headlamps now receives a new V-shaped styling and the front fascia lost the faux side air vents.

2. Updated interior

It’s true that the older versions of the Toyota Camry could have used a little attitude, but they offered the best interiors in the mid-size sedan segment. That said, the old Camry offers a cozy interior compared to other saloons it competed with at the time it was still in production. It had a leather interior complimented by piano black and wood grain accents and a few metal trim pieces.

At the center is a standard touchscreen infotainment system.



The new Toyota Camry features smooth leather seats, doors, shift lever, and knob. Inside is a clean cabin with some familiar piano black, wood grain, and metal trims with blue ambient lighting adding a new touch of sophistication. The touchscreen infotainment system is now replaced by a more modern seven-inch multi-info display.

3. Engine

The previous-gen Camrys were offered in two engine options: a 2.5-liter engine and a 3.5-liter V6 mill. Both powerplants were impressive but the former obviously offered more power than the latter.

Today’s Toyota Camry is only offered in a single engine option, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder powertrain mated to a six-speed automatic tranny.

Toyota’s current lineup of Camrys includes the 2.5 G and the 2.5 V models. They are priced at P1,886,000 and P2,072,000 respectively.
