The Toyota Camry is one of the best sedans on the market today. Not only is it a very safe car, but it’s also affordable and fun to drive as well. That said, despite being affordable, Toyota offers many standard features on the Camry. Here’s a look at what’s standard and what’s optional in the Toyota Camry, including smartphone integration features.
Android Auto does, in fact, come standard
As U.S. News reported, the latest Toyota Camry has a lot of standard features for a car at its price point. The Camry comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with both Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay. These smartphone integration features allow you to use your phone’s interface and key features through the infotainment system in the Camry’s cabin.
Unsurprisingly, U.S. News says that the Camry’s infotainment system is very user-friendly and its physical controls make it simple to change the settings of things.
On top of that, the Camry also has a six-speaker stereo system that is linked to satellite radio as standard. Additionally, Toyota offers Siri Eyes Free, a voice command system, as standard on the Camry. To round things off, Toyota also offers a USB port, Bluetooth compatibility, and a Wi-Fi hotspot all as standard in the latest model year of the Camry.
The Toyota Camry’s optional features
The latest Toyota Camry model year starts at under $25,000, but Toyota has plenty of options and upgrades for it. U.S. News says that the Camry’s touchscreen can be upgraded to an 8-inch touch screen display instead. Furthermore, a navigational system can be added to the Camry’s infotainment suite. Other infotainment upgrades that are available include two additional USB ports, an HD radio, and a premium nine-speaker stereo system.
That said, U.S. News mentions that the 8-inch touchscreen upgrade isn’t available for the base trim of the Camry. You’ll have to choose one of the more expensive trims instead in order to have access to it.
Toyota also offers several smart upgrades to the Camry. Drivers can choose to add wireless device charging, a push-button start system, and a head-up display to their Camry. Toyota also offers a surround-view parking camera system that’ll help you park your Camry perfectly.
In terms of convenience and comfort upgrades, Toyota also has several options available for the Camry. U.S. News says that the Camry can be equipped with automatic climate control as well as dual-zone automatic climate control. On top of those things, the Camry can also have a moonroof and a panoramic glass roof.
The Toyota Camry’s smart safety features
Toyota takes safety very seriously, so the latest model years of the Camry come with a lot of smart safety features. Many of these features aren’t standard on other cars. U.S. News says that the latest Toyota Camry has adaptive cruise control, a pedestrian detection system, lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, and a forward collision detection system – all as standard smart safety features.
Additionally, Toyota has several other smart safety features that are optional on the Camry. These include blind spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic alert system, as well as reverse automatic emergency braking. All of these smart safety features allow the latest Camry model years to be extremely safe, according to U.S. News.
In fact, U.S. News says that with the help of the many smart safety features that the latest model year of the Camry has, the Camry gets a safety rating of 10 out of 10. This perfect safety score is both a reflection of how well the Camry did in its crash tests as well as how many safety features that it has. It’s also a reflection of how useful and effective those smart safety features are.
