2022 Toyota Camry - Standard safety features are impressive on Camry | Cars Blog

Starting price is about 25.295 USD.

An automotive staple for nearly four decades, the Toyota Camry needs almost no introduction. The bread-and-butter family sedan is still selling well despite a shift in consumer preference for crossovers. After receiving a slight makeover to the 2021 model year, the Camry is expected to be the largely unchanged soldier in 2022.

It's not the most exciting midsize sedan out there, but some buyers will agree with that. The Camry serves one purpose: to provide reliable and practical transportation for families. However, some variations serve this purpose better than others. Despite its sporty intentions, the TRD variant offers poor performance, a harsh ride and a lack of amenities, undermining the Camry's ultimate goal of being an everyday drivable sedan.

However, the XSE Hybrid delivers the goods. Its quiet, smooth powertrain, solid handling, interior comfort and excellent fuel economy make it one of the better models in Toyota's lineup.

Strong crash scores, rich safety features, and traditionally good IntelliChoice value ratings add to the Camry's appeal. But make no mistake; The Camry is not a segment leader. Performance and handling are unmatched by rivals like the Honda Accord. The Accord is also more comfortable and roomy.

2022 Toyota Camry - Performance and Fuel Economy

Expect the 2022 Camry to stick with its 2021 lineup of engines. The base engine should remain a 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 202-206 hp and 182-186 lb-ft of torque depending on the trim. A choice of FWD and AWD should be available. Maximum fuel economy for 2021 models with this engine came in at 28/39 mpg city/highway.

For more power, a V-6 is expected to make 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. These models should come exclusively with FWD. Fuel economy should max out at around 22/33 mpg like the 2021 model.

Buyers who want the best fuel economy should choose the 208-hp Camry Hybrid. This model tops out at 51/53 mpg (or 44/47 above the LE trim).

2022 Toyota Camry - Safety

Standard safety features are impressive on the Camry. For 2022, expect the usual list: pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high-beams, road sign assist, and adaptive cruise control. There should also be standard lane tracing assist, which uses the lines on the road to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.

Interior amenities
The base LE gets dual-zone automatic climate control and illuminated mirrors on the front fenders, both of which make it feel a bit more premium.

After 30 years of creating a very successful midsize sedan, Toyota knows what works. This is a comfortable cabin where you can easily get a good driving position and look out.

The freestanding infotainment screen - available in either 7-inch or 9-inch sizes, depending on trim level - follows the trend of luxury cars. It tops the neatly designed center console, which includes the usual gearshift lever for the transmission. Many people will prefer that over the buttons of the Honda Accord.

Although 38 inches of rear legroom is about 2 inches shorter than the flagship Accord, it's still plenty and enough for a medium-sized adult, even if someone of the same height sits directly in front. The same can be said for the 15.1 block trunk. Again, not as good as the Accord's 16.7, but still has capacity.

Greater versatility is enabled by the 60/40 split and folding rear seats. However, the rear seats of the TRD model are fixed in place due to the addition of stiffeners that stiffen the body.

Price of Toyota Camry 2022

With front-wheel drive and LE trim, the most affordable 2022 Camry has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $25,295, plus destination fees. All-wheel drive is another $1,400.

The range leads with the XLE V6 model, at $35,170. Several more options are available, the push is just over $37.5k.

Putting these prices into some sort of context, the Honda Accord starts at around $25k. The Kia K5 and Chevrolet Malibu start just under $24k followed by the Hyundai Sonata and Nissan Altima a little above. The Subaru Legacy (with all-wheel drive as standard) is at the same ballpark, along with the soon-to-be-discontinued Volkswagen Passat.
