Dynamic Performance

Camry has a powerful 2.5L Dual VVT-i engine and six speed sequential shift transmission combined with Anti-Skid Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC). This package not only delivers plenty of power, it also helps to keep you in control. Electric Power Steering (EPS) and suspension tuned specifically for Australian road conditions as well as aerodynamic features, combine to deliver a dynamic ride and handling package.

Improved hybrid performance

All Hybrid models are powered by an engine unit featuring Toyota's world leading Hybrid Synergy Drive® technology. This incorporates a 2.5 Litre engine and an advanced electric motor to improve acceleration from a standing start. An Anti-skid Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC) also deliver improved safety and provide supreme handling in all conditions.


Camry's 2.5L 2AR-FE Dual VVT-i engine is a highly efficient power pack and includes advanced engine technologies that lower engine friction to deliver more power more efficiently.

The 2.5 Litre petrol engine in the Hybrid models delivers significant power and torque, yet it is also economical, with excellent fuel economy[G1] and low CO2 emissions[G1].


Camry's 2.5L 2AR-FE Dual VVT-i engine includes advanced engine technologies that lower engine friction and deliver more power more efficiently, lowering fuel consumption at the same time [G1]. More power with less fuel cost is one of the reasons that Camry has earned it's reputation as Australia's favourite mid-sized sedan [G1].

Camry Atara Dual Exhaust

Camry Atara's dual exhaust isn't just a powerful style statement, it also improves performance.

Camry H and Camry HL - Powerful Hybrid Engine

The powerful Hybrid engine incorporates a 2.5 L petrol engine. This is teamed with an advanced electric motor using Toyota's world leading Hybrid Synergy Drive® technology. It delivers excellent power and torque, yet is also economical, with excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.

Six Speed Automatic Transmission

The 2.5L engine in Camry is mated to a six speed automatic transmission with sequential shift. This transmission matches exactly the right gear ratio for the driving situation, helping you drive more smoothly. Camry Atara makes for an engaging drive when Sports mode is selected, with paddle shift technology delivering high response up shifts and throttle 'blipping' downshifts.

Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (e-CVT)

Changing gear is a thing of the past with the Hybrid engine. Instead, the cars use a system called electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). This applies power seamlessly, providing smooth and efficient acceleration. Along with the powerful engine unit, e-CVT also ensures dynamic acceleration when pulling away or overtaking.

Electric Power Steering(EPS)

Electric Power Steering (EPS) is standard across all Camrys.

Based on feedback from the car's sensors, the amount of steering power assistance required varies so that you always have a good feel for the road in all driving situations. Tuned specifically for Australian driving conditions, the steering is light at low speed to make parking easier but becomes heavier for better feedback at speeds on the highway.

Paddle Shift Technology

Fast response paddle shift technology and Sports Driving Mode for faster gear changes provide a more dynamic driving experience for Atara owners.


Camry's aerodynamics are crucial to performance - the body design incorporates Formula 1 inspired vortex generating aero fins on the side mirror mounts and tail lamps as well as on the underbody of the car. These are designed to help stabilise performance by dictating airflow behaviour around the vehicle and helping the car hug the road.

Low Noise & Vibration

Camry's acoustic insulation technology provides you with a quiet and more comfortable ride. The Noise and Vibration (NVH) profile reduces unwanted sound and vibration and insulates you from the worst of irritating external noises such as road works. This gives you a chance to listen to music or chat without raising your voice.

The Hybrid models feature an acoustic glass windscreen that reduces noise levels for ultimate comfort.

Towing Capacity

Both the 2.5L Dual VVT-i engine and the Hybrid engine generate a significant amount of torque. In fact, Camry is the only passenger hybrid with a towing capacity [G6]. If you have a trailer or boat, tow bars are available as an accessory across the range.
