TORONTO, Ontario– Building upon greatness, the new 2025 Toyota Camry enters its ninth generation with a fresh new look, enhanced performance and a Hybrid powertrain that’s made to move.. And now, as a part of Toyota’s effort to provide electrification for all, the 2025 Toyota Camry will be an exclusively Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), offering a combination of power and fuel efficiency that is ready to take on the daily drive.
“Toyota has led the industry in providing drivers with vehicles that reduce emissions and boost fuel efficiency. We have sold more than 20 million electrified vehicles worldwide since 1997 and today we offer Canadians a broad range of models to ensure there’s an electrified vehicle for every lifestyle,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “This includes a growing number of models that are exclusively hybrid-electric such as the Prius, Crown, Venza, Sienna, and Sequoia – and we’re excited to add another core model, the Toyota Camry, to that list.”
Powering Camry is Toyota’s first-ever sedan pairing of its 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine and the fifth-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS 5). Combining the engine’s power with two electric motors, this dynamic new HEV has a standard 225 net combined horsepower on Front Wheel Drive (FWD) models and 232 hp on Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) equipped models. Toyota engineers have also tuned the new HEV system at lower speeds to reduce engine RPMs and increase power from the traction battery to provide satisfying acceleration and torque feel. The Toyota Camry will also adopt the “Beyond Zero” badge to signal Toyota’s strong commitment to reducing carbon emissions and its vision for a carbon-neutral future.
For the first time ever on a Camry Hybrid, Toyota’s Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system will be available on all grades. For added peace of mind, the AWD system provides additional traction when needed, like during inclement weather or while cornering. The AWD system’s capability comes from a dedicated rear electric drive motor generator that automatically supplies power to the rear wheels when needed.
The ninth generation Camry, designed by CALTY’s Newport Beach, California and Ann Arbor, Michigan studios, delivers a sleeker, athletic look to the popular sedan’s design.
The new Open-Style Cockpit design offers the modern open-concept and refined materials offer a unique experience to the interior design of each grade. Beginning with the sport grades, the SE comes standard with Black SofTex®-trimmed seats featuring sporty bold white accents while the XSE adds a standard leather-trimmed interior with artistic “shooting blade” patterned perforations found on both the side door trim and seating surfaces. The XSE interior is available in two colours Black with blue lined perforations or the fan-favorite Cockpit Red. The XLE grade is the first Camry to feature leather and Dinamica® microfiber-trimmed seats offered in Light Gray or Black. A quilted pattern in this material can also be found on the front door panels and dashboard.
Toyota Camry also sets the standard for convenience. The next generation model comes with a standard push-to-start button, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system with rear air vents.
For the 2025 model, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster comes standard on SE models, while a standard 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster is found in the XLE and XSE grades. The XLE and XSE grades also come with a standard 10-inch Head Up Display to allow drivers to check their speed, see warning indicators, and turn-by-turn navigation.
The Toyota Multimedia System includes a standard 8-inch touchscreen display or an available 12.3-inch screen. The system includes standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, and pairs with the standard Qi wireless charging pad. Camry also offers a standard combination of USB-A and USB-C ports, with three in the front and two in the rear across all grades.
With an active available Drive Connect* trial or subscription, Camry drivers can also interact with the system through touch and voice activation. With Intelligent Assistant available through Drive Connect*, simple phrases like “Hey Toyota” awakens the system for voice-activated commands to search for directions, find Points of Interest (POI), adjust audio controls, change the cabin temperatures and more. Over-the-Air (OTA) updates will also be available.
