Note: This interior review was created when the 2016 Toyota Camry was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

The 2016 Toyota Camry impresses test drivers thanks to its exceptionally quiet ride. Most report that the cabin is attractive and smartly designed with quality materials. Critics say that the audio and climate controls, as well as the infotainment system, are intuitive and easy to use while driving. They appreciate the roomy, relaxing seats and note that even the back seats are comfortable and spacious for taller passengers.

  • "Camry is definitely among the best in class in terms of a hushed cabin." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
  • "Across all trim levels, the finishes are generally attractive, although we would prefer fewer satin-chrome pieces. The XSE's microsuede seat and door inserts are right on the money." -- Automobile Magazine (2015)
  • "A new dashboard and door panels make the Camry look far more modern and the materials are improved throughout. There are a few bits of cheap-looking plastic here and there, but they’re mostly in out-of-the-way places where they won't bother you. Get into the higher trims including XSE and XLE and you'll find even better materials and more stylish contrast stitching." -- Motor Trend (2015)
  • "The dollar investment in higher-quality and plusher materials is undeniable, and gives the Camry a fighting chance against its competition." -- Road and Track (2015)
  • "While entry-level Camry models benefit from a few new upscale interior materials, these trims still don't feel quite as special as rivals like the Honda Accord and Mazda6. This is largely because of the overall interior look, which remains a bit dull." -- AutoTrader (2015)

Seating

The 2016 Toyota Camry seats five. Cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat are standard. Leather upholstery, a power-adjustable passenger seat and heated front seats are available. Reviewers report that the Camry’s seats are comfortable and spacious. They take note of the roomy rear seats, which they say provide plenty of head- and legroom, even for taller passengers. Some critics point out that the fixed rear headrests can inhibit properly securing a front-facing child seat.

  • "The 2016 Toyota Camry provides one of the most comfortable and spacious cabins of any midsize family sedan. There's plenty of headroom and legroom up front and not much less in back, where even taller adults will be content to ride for extended periods. Moreover, a rear-facing child seat will fit in back with ease. The fixed rear headrests make it difficult to properly secure a front-facing child seat, though." -- Edmunds
  • "The XSE interior is also convincingly sporty and upscale; SE and XSE front seats offer a bit more side bolstering than other Camrys, but they are still all-day comfortable." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
  • "Toyota says increased insulation helps make these the quietest Camrys ever, a claim we found easy to believe while on the road." -- Kelley Blue Book (2015)
  • "Whichever trim you choose, the backseat is palatial, providing ample leg and headroom along with excellent under-thigh support for taller passengers. You can certainly buy a bigger sedan than the Camry (Toyota's own Avalon comes to mind), but you probably won't need more rear passenger space than this." -- AutoTrader (2014)

Interior Features

The 2016 Toyota Camry comes standard with a rearview camera, Bluetooth and Toyota’s Entune audio system with voice recognition, a 6.1-inch touch screen, six speakers, USB and auxiliary inputs and Siri Eyes Free, which enables iPhone users to use voice commands to control a number of their phone’s functions through the Camry’s infotainment system. Available features include a power moonroof, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless smartphone charging, navigation, a larger (7-inch) touch screen, satellite radio, HD Radio, a 10-speaker JBL audio system, smartphone app integration, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.

The 2016 Camry features large audio and climate control buttons that reviewers say are user-friendly and convenient. Critics say that the Entune infotainment system’s touch screen is intuitive and responsive, but they note that the graphics are better in rival systems. They add that using Bluetooth to connect a smartphone is simple and the voice recognition system works well.

  • "From the driver's vantage point, most of the physical buttons are plenty large, easy to understand at a glance and glove-friendly. The sensibly designed climate controls deserve special praise for their simple, intuitive operation. On the technology front, the Camry gets a standard 6.1-inch version of Toyota's Entune touchscreen infotainment system, with an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen specified on multiple trim levels. The graphics aren't as crisp as the segment's best, but like the Camry's other control interfaces, these screens are relatively straightforward and easy to use." -- Edmunds
  • "Want to change the time? Touch the clock. That's just an example of the intuitive interface, which I think UI engineers at a couple of German companies should study." -- Road and Track (2015)
  • "The overall dashboard layout isn't much different than before, but that's OK... we've got no quarrel with the Camry's simple, straightforward controls. We especially appreciate Toyota's tendency toward large buttons, which are especially easy to see and use while driving. This also holds true for the virtual ‘buttons’ of the intuitive touchscreen system." -- Consumer Guide (2015)
  • "The touchscreen reacts immediately to your inputs with none of the lag so common to these car-based systems. The user interface is simple and intuitive, the voice recognition works very well, and pairing your phone via Bluetooth is a snap." -- Motor Trend (2015)

Cargo

The trunk in the 2016 Toyota Camry has a capacity of 15.4 cubic feet, which is above the class average. The rear seats fold down, and critics appreciate the generous amount of space in the trunk.

  • "The trunk, at 15.4 cubic feet, is large and sensibly shaped." -- Edmunds (2015)
  • "If those passengers need to carry some gear they'll find the trunk is more than ample. …" -- Kelley Blue Book (2014)
