2019 Toyota Camry Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.5

The 2019 Toyota Camry has a great interior. It looks good and uses plenty of high-end materials. The only drawback is that it lets in more outside noise than some rivals. The seats are roomy and comfortable, and a user-friendly infotainment system headlines the features list. Trunk space is average for the class in all but the base L trim, which has 1 cubic foot less than other trims.

  • "Soft-touch surfaces abound, and they look and feel good. Its design and variety of textures won't be mistaken for those of a luxury car, but they're attractive without sacrificing functionality." - Edmunds
  • "The quality of materials is way up, with … a more appealing, driver-focused design with softer, more nicely textured surfaces everywhere. The stitched stuff on the dash is now a more convincing simulated leather, the cloth and SofTex vinyl upholstery has a greatly improved look and feel, and the gloss black trim around the also-improved switchgear looks suitably lux." -- Autoblog (2018)
  • "The interior is funkier, too, binning the previous slablike dash for a more three-dimensional design bisected by a wavelike trim piece. The triangular center stack angles toward the driver, while on the passenger's side the dash curves away to create a greater sense of spaciousness. The gloss-black region into which the central touchscreen is integrated provides today's requisite smartphone-mimicking appearance, but it retains enough knobs and physical buttons to make for easy operation. Top-spec models enjoy padded surfaces, soft-touch plastics, and attractive graining, some of which is preserved for mid-level trims, although these get hard-plastic door panels and a cheaper-feeling steering wheel." -- Car and Driver (2018)

Seating

The Camry seats five people and comes with cloth upholstery. Synthetic or genuine leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, and heated front seats are available. In all but the base model, the rear seats fold with a 60/40 split.

You can expect a comfortable ride no matter where you sit in this Toyota. Both rows of seats are supportive, if a little firm, and provide plenty of legroom. Tall passengers may wish for a tad more headroom in the back, however. Drivers enjoy good visibility in all directions.

This sedan comes with two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing car seats. All anchor points are easy to find and use, making it easy to connect car-seat straps.

  • "As before, Camry is very roomy inside, though lanky drivers might wish for more headroom. Visibility is very good to the front corners, good to the sides and back corners." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
  • "The redesigned interior has higher-quality pieces all around and very comfortable redesigned seats." -- Cars.com (2018)
  • While the seats felt a little stiff for our tastes up front, they were attractive and relatively supportive – and the rears fold down in a 60/40 split." -- Automobile Magazine (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Camry include the Entune infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Siri Eyes Free, and Apple CarPlay. Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high beams. Some of these features are part of Toyota's Safety Sense suite of driver assistance technology.

Available features include a moonroof or a panoramic glass roof, single- or dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, wireless smartphone charging, and an upgraded infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, two additional USB ports, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a nine-speaker JBL audio system. Available active safety features include a head-up display, a 360-degree camera, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic rearward braking.

The infotainment system provides an easy-to-see touch screen and physical buttons and knobs, giving you multiple ways to adjust audio and climate settings. The system works well, and the touch screen responds quickly to inputs.

  • "From a user's perspective, Entune 3.0 is faster to respond than before, making the system far more pleasurable to use. For all versions, Toyota continues to employ separate climate controls beneath the display screen, and has replaced gray buttons with classy looking chrome tabs that give the dashboard an air of sophistication." -- New York Daily News (2018)
  • Also new is Toyota's latest touchscreen interface dubbed Entune 3. Available in standard 7-in and optional 8-in sizes, it responds better to inputs and features better graphics with more easily pressed icons. A decent Scout GPS navigation app that streams from your smartphone comes standard along with additional apps, but Toyota won't be offering … Android Auto. That's a shame because the new Camry is otherwise well-suited for smartphones thanks to its available three USB ports and wireless Qi charging pad built sleekly into the bin lid forward of the shifter." -- Autotrader (2018)
  • "The base audio system uses a 7-inch touchscreen surrounded with volume and tuning knobs along with eight buttons. … The standard Scout navigation system uses your connected cell phone, and thus requires a cell-phone signal to function. Standard on V6s and optional on all other models but the L is an upgraded infotainment system that includes a CD player and GPS-linked navigation. Both were found to be fairly easy to operate, which can't be said for all such systems. Climate controls were also easy to use." -- Consumer Guide (2018)

Cargo

The base Camry provides 14.1 cubic feet of trunk space. All other Camry models have a 15.1-cubic-foot trunk and split-folding rear seats. With the larger trunk, the Camry has an average amount of cargo space. The wide trunk opening and low liftover height make it easy to load items, but the trunk lid hinges dip into the opening, and the folded rear seats don't lie completely flat with the trunk floor.

  • "The Camry has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height." - Edmunds
  • The trunk is wide at the rear and quite roomy, and though the trunklid opens wide to create a large opening, its sickle-shaped hinges dip into the load space a bit. Also, the folded rear seat backs rest about seven inches above the level of the trunk floor, making it tougher to slide long items forward." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
  • "Trunk space is less generous, too, dropping from 15.4 cubic-feet to 15.1 cu.-ft. This puts the Camry firmly toward the bottom end of the midsize car segment, and the company still doesn't supply a shelf or grab handle inside of the trunk so that owners can slam it shut without placing their fingers on the outside of the lid." -- New York Daily News (2018)
