The 2020 Toyota Camry is a popular nameplate in the midsize sedan class with basic qualities such as roomy cabin, ample trunk space, a comfortable ride, and high safety and reliability scores. But for 2020 some noteworthy additions like all-wheel drive and sporty TRD trim make it more desirable than others.

The Toyota continues to offer the sport-oriented SE and XSE trims but adds a new TRD that bumps up the Camry's performance abilities. Other top alternatives of Toyota Camry include the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, and Mazda 6

2020 Toyota Camry Buying Advice

If you’re looking for performance, the XLE offers an optional V6 engine and is the cheapest of the high-end trims that offer the said powertrain, at $28,925.

We Recommend:

The mid-level Camry SE should satisfy most shoppers as it brings a decent value. For the starting price of $26,170, you get the four-cylinder engine with a generous feature upgrade over the base trim. It includes comfort features such as a multifunction steering wheel with leather upholstery and various interior elements in leather. Furthermore, the wheels get bumped up to 18-inch alloy wheels. All-wheel-drive is a $1,400 option.

2020 Toyota Camry Engine and Performance

7.5/10
“This generation Camry has more spirit than its predecessor, which is most apparent in its more refined steering and handling.” - Edmunds

Boasting 203 horsepower and 184-pound feet of torque, the base 2.5L four-cylinder engine comes standard under the hood of the 2020 Camry. The power is routed via an 8-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. The power rating varies with trim configurations and drivetrain. You will get 202 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque in AWD LE and XLE, a 206 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque in FWD XSE, and 205 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque in AWD XSE guise. For those of you who are looking for more power, that honor is reserved for the XSE and XLE trims which get a powerful 301-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 as an option. 

2020 Toyota Camry

At $24,425 base price, the base Camry's non-turbocharged engine has a responsive personality, promptly delivering power to propel the front wheels with smoothness and vigor. While the 2.5L does perform well and is eager to impress, it, however, feels a bit too lethargic on low RPM. Toyota Camry comes with three driving modes, Comfort, Eco, and Sport – where the latter mode stiffens the chassis and engulfs the powertrain as it were on a track. However, all you’d be given is a compliant engine under your control, but do not expect a racecar.

Take a glimpse at the competition; you’ll notice that the Camry’s output is amongst the most powerful in the segment. Getting the front wheels rolling from zero to 60 mph takes the Toyota Camry with the base engine takes a laudable 7.5 seconds while its quarter-mile race distance is completed in 15.9 seconds. Buyers in this segment would look for comfort and composed driving where the Camry delivers just that; a well-rounded and composed ride.

Where all-rounded performance is considered, the 2020 Camry impresses on most fronts and its braking is just another fleeting mechanism it triumphs. The 12” and 11” front and rear rotors respectively are clasped by disc brakes to take an average of 122 ft to come to a standstill in a simulated brake test from 60 MPH. While that is still not as great as the segment, its brake feel is modulated and does not feel mushy or taut, instead, it has good pedal travel and responds well.

2020 Toyota Camry Fuel Economy

6.0/10

"The whole Camry lineup performed extremely well in the EPA's tests, and a four-cylinder model did brilliantly in our real-world highway  testing." - Car and Driver 

The 2020 Camry L trim with a four-cylinder engine returns EPA estimated 28 MPG in the city, 41 MPG on the highway, and 34 MPG combined. Moving up to the LE trim, and the highway figures drop to 38 MPG. The V6 powered XSE and XLE get 22 MPG in the city, and 33 MPG on the highway. The Toyota Camry offers one of the most frugal powertrains in the class.

The Camry's fuel tank capacity also varies with the configuration you choose. The base L trim comes with a standard 14.5-gallon fuel tank capacity, which translates to a combined range of 493 miles. All the other trim levels get a bigger fuel tank rated at 15.8-gallon, thus offering a mixed driving range of 506 miles in the LE, and 411 miles with the XSE V6.

2020 Toyota Camry Interior

7.8/10
"The driver's seat will satisfy a truly broad range of sizes and shapes, and the cabin is spacious.” - Edmunds

The 2020 Toyota Camry is known for its comfortable and roomy interior. The sedan seat 5 passengers on cloth-stitched seats offering ample headroom and legroom. The front seats are nicely bolstered which provides good support without pinching larger-framed occupants. Inside the 2020 Camry’s cabin is a good mix of style, material quality, technology, and functionality. The dashboard design reflects Lexus's inspiration, with sharp angles and rounded curves comprising the instrument cluster, and center control surround.

Visibility around the cabin has good viewing angles with not much to complain about, and materials used and finishing touches have a rather upscale and soft feeling unlike some of its rivals. A 6-way adjustable driver seat ensures solace if you’re behind the wheels and 60/40 folding rear seats assure you of a tad more space than the miserly cargo space. Entering and getting out of the vehicle is easily done due to the large and narrow doors of the sedan. Annoyingly, you’d feel the designer of the sedan was in no mood to isolate outside noise in the interior; the constant humming of the engine aided by wind noise enters the cabin with ease.

Floating in the middle of the dash is a 7” infotainment system with smartphone integration including Apple Carplay and Android Auto. The standard infotainment system also features a six-speaker stereo, Siri Eyes Free, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a USB port, and Bluetooth. You can upgrade to the available 8-inch touch screen, which also adds two more USB ports, HD Radio, and a nine-speaker JBL audio system. Albeit you’d find the system fairly simple and easy to use, the rivals in the segment have better integration of the system as well as seemingly intuitive. Some standard infotainment features found in the 2020 Camry are:

  • Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa
  • Navigation (GPS scout link)
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • 6-speaker sound system

Trunk space varies by trim, rated at 14.1 cubic feet on the L and 15.1 cubic feet on all others. However its rivals like the Chevrolet Malibu and its subcompact sister, the Cruze warrant similar semantics yet offer better spacing. Some of the features offered in the 2020 Toyota Camry are:

  • Hill Start Assist Control
  • 6-way adjustable driver and front passenger seat
  • Fabric-trimmed front seats with passenger-side seatback pocket
  • Integrated backup camera with projected path

2020 Toyota Camry Exterior

The 2020 Toyota Camry is, dare we say it, stylish.” - The Car Connection

The current 2020 Camry is one of the best-looking sedans with sporty styling with a wide front grille and sculpted aluminum hood. Toyota surprisingly equips the Cmary with design elements such as the four chrome-tipped exhaust pipes on the XSE. The Nightshade edition appearance package adds to the sedan’s dramatic styling with dark trim and wheels, as well as black badges and emblems.

At 5.7” from the ground, at first sight, you’d see the wide and front-grille and the athleticism of the sleek design of the sedan with 16” steel wheels on four corners spinning the sedan down the tarmac. Molded around the slightly curvaceous physique of the midsize sedan has a bold and sporty design infused to create one of the best-looking cars in the price segment.

Toyota insignia sits on the similarly T-sculpted hugging the meshed-grille and horizontal grilled framework underneath it. Bordered by the Bi-LED headlights on either side, the design takes over the giant-cat-clawed character lines on the hood.

2020 Toyota Camry Safety

2020 Toyota Camry vs 2020 Hyundai Sonata

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has a lower power output but is faster in the 0-60 and quarter-mile clocking times. In terms of fuel efficiency, it is the Toyota Camry that outperforms all the competitors. The interiors of both cars are equally plush and feature-fitted. We would recommend the 2020 Camry even in spite of the higher asking price, as it is completely worth the fuel efficiency and reliability of Toyota.

2020 Hyundai Sonata

2020 Toyota Camry vs 2020 Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion complies with an excellent and sporty ride with a great host of standard tech. However, Toyota Camry brings performance, sturdy and comfortable ride host of safety features that instantly put it up above the Ford Fusion. Not to say the American sedan is a bad buy but Toyota is an overall better performer and really worth your money.

2020 Ford Fusion

2020 Toyota Camry vs 2020 Kia Optima

The 2020 Kia Optima offers a fine interior, feature-packed, and extremely comfortable. However, the Camry is way more fuel-efficient and power-packed. Again, just like the Hyundai Sonata, even its sister brand, the Kia Optima 2020 has more speed to its name even though the Toyota Camry has more power. Considering the spectacular reliability of Toyota and their Value for money offering, we would recommend the 2020 Camry.

2020 Kia Optima

 

2020 Toyota Camry Final Verdict

One of the finest compact sedans in the market, the 2020 Toyota Camry delivers on all fronts. It’s got the quirky design, the composed and comfortable ride quality, plush seating, quality interior, along with great performing engines and thrifty fuel efficiency. Complementing the list is the crash-test record that deems it a reliable sedan. Sure it has got a strong contender in its rivals, but the sedan in itself is a great buy. This should be on your list of test drives if the rivals are anything in your list of considerations.
