Love my camry!!

2012 Toyota Camry Wendy Mobley - Jefferson, GA 11/30/2015

I've had absolutely no problem with my camry. I highly recommend this car to anyone looking for something that is reasonable in price and extremely good on gas mileage. I had my doubts at first with a smaller car but I am so glad I made the purchase!!

Excellent Car; outstanding value

2012 Toyota Camry Nicole T - Atlanta, GA 08/27/2015

I love everything about this car. I generally choose very carefully most items I purchase from earbuds to clothes to cars. I do lots of research before buying and somehow always find something major that I don't like about it but this is not one of those scenarios. Everyday that I'm in the car, I love it even more. It's quiet, has great acceleration, comfortable & spacious interior, has loads of storage space, the speaker system is of great quality, great visibility through every angle of sight, and safe!

Best car I ever owned

2012 Toyota Camry B Williams - Georgetown, KY 12/14/2015

I bought a 2012 Toyota Camry SE with the 6 cylinder engine and I am very satisfied with my purchase. It has plenty of leg and head room, interior space, nice sized trunk and great on gas. This Camry came with everything I wanted plus some surprises like a clear bug shield and illuminated electric blue Camry kick plate. This vehicle rides and handles great, responsive steering and manuverability is smooth. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a dependable and gas saving vehicle. Road noise is minimal, the gauges/knobs are easily readable and not clustered plus there are plenty of cup holders for your drinks, two in the middle console, front doors plus two in the armrest in the backseat. Great vehicle for the money and very nice.

2012 Toyota Camry Overview

The 2012 Toyota Camry is classified as a mid-size car that offers fantastic fuel economy and a smooth ride, coupled with the model's well-known reliability. Completely redesigned for this model year, the Camry's interior features high-quality improvements such as front and rear seats that are spacious enough to seat five tall adults in comfort. A soft-touch dashboard and the optional Entune multimedia system, which syncs the control of apps with a smartphone, offers welcome touches of luxury and connectivity. The 2012 Camry also includes standard features such as a USB port, six-speaker audio system, 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.

2012 Toyota Camry History

Manufactured since 1982 by Japanese car-maker Toyota, the Camry nameplate has undergone significant changes through the years. The 2012 Toyota Camry is a reflection of the vehicle's continual shift from a compact car during its early years to a mid-size offering that has made it popular with so many American families. As part of the seventh generation of Camrys, the XV50 model made its debut at the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in August 2011.

  • The Toyota Camry was introduced in the United States as a compact car for the 1982 model year.
  • A mid-size version was rolled out in 1991.
  • Simultaneous production for both versions of the Camry were ongoing until the 2003 model year, when the compact body style was phased out.
  • Toyota sold 404,886 Camrys of the 2012 model year.
  • The hybrid version of this model features a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine coupled with an electric motor and delivers 200 combined horsepower.
  • This is the first year in which no manual transmission option was offered for the Toyota Camry.

How It Drives

Designed as a family car with an emphasis on comfort, the 2012 Toyota Camry also offers a surprisingly peppy performance. The Toyota Star Safe System offers an extensive array of features including ten airbags for side, front, rear, knee, and curtain protection; traction control; Smart Stop technology; vehicle stability control; crumple zones in the front and rear; and front seats that are designed to reduce the likelihood of whiplash. Its four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS) is outfitted with electronic brake-force distribution.

Used 2012 Toyota Camry Value

For 13 out of the past 14 years, the Toyota Camry has been America's top selling passenger car. Based on multiple crucial factors, including cost to own and performance, JD Power and Associates provided the 2012 Toyota Camry with a score of 8.7 out of 10. US News & World Report ranked the vehicle as number four in affordable midsize cars during the 2012 model year.

Design & Performance

As a mid-sized car, the 2012 Toyota Camry is designed to be a family sedan rather than a high-performance machine. While the vehicle's performance mirrors this goal, it still provides a decent performance that is ideal for commuting and traveling.

  • The four-cylinder engine offers lively and competent pickup that is ideal for everyday driving.
  • The six-speed automatic transmission is responsive and shifts smoothly.
  • Its suspension allows for a comfortable ride, even on rough roads.
  • Though this model features a new power steering system, the base model's handling has remained predictable with acceptable cornering.
  • A sharper and more angular fascia provides a cleaner look for both the Camry's foglights and headlights.
  • Its taillights are bolder for the 2012 model when compared to previous years.
  • The SE model offers a more athletic feel via its sport-tuned suspension.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2012 Toyota Camry is available as either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder capable of producing 178 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V6 with 268 horsepower. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the four-cylinder Toyota Camry gets 25 miles to the gallon during city driving and 35 on the highway. This makes the vehicle the most fuel-efficient gasoline non-hybrid car in its class. The Camry's V6 engine gets 21 miles to the gallon in the city and 30 during highway driving. While the four-cylinder Camry offers respectable power, the six-cylinder version zooms from zero to 60 MPH in 7.8 seconds.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The redesign that the Toyota Camry underwent in 2012 elevated its comfort and style. Some of the features that come standard on the SE model include:

  • fog lamps
  • 17-inch alloy wheels (V6 models feature 18-inch alloy wheels)
  • port-tuned suspension
  • leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • sport seats
  • shift paddles
