“intelligently designed” interior
Last year brought a complete redesign of the Camry; Toyota gave it more character and made it a bit sexier than in the past. The 2008 Toyota Camry’s shape hasn’t changed much in a year, and reviewers across the Web think its styling is a step forward.
The Camry was "extensively restyled and upgraded for 2007,” Cars.com reports of the Toyota; 2008’s Camry is “unchanged but for some cosmetic exterior and interior choices." They go on to say that "the hallmark of this sixth-generation Camry is Toyota's effort to shake the stodgy, plain reputation the car had developed in some circles." Kelley Blue Book agrees regarding the Camry; Toyota’s latest is "a departure from the upright styles of previous generations."
The 2008 Toyota Camry is “a departure from the upright style of previous models,” Automedia says, one that “shares Toyota's shapely new sedan look with its larger stablemate Avalon and upscale cousin Lexus ES.” Motor Trend believes that “the sexier styling addresses the major complaint voiced by current Camry owners--too vanilla.” Automobile says of the Toyota, 2008’s edition is “inching its way from the bland,” though “its eyebrow headlamps, high shoulders, thick waist, and high rear deck are all overly familiar styling themes, so this car hardly represents some sort of design breakthrough.” A special SE sport edition “looks decidedly more athletic than the others,” Automedia concludes.
The 2008 Toyota Camry’s interior is “intelligently designed,” Automobile thinks. It’s also “more modern and stylish than before,” according to Automedia, which notes the clear gauges in the Toyota: 2008’s Camry is improved over the previous car, as “instruments are larger, more readable and better illuminated, with a different look for each model.”
The 2008 Toyota Camry inches toward stylishness, inside and out.
