The interior of the redesigned 2012 Toyota Camry feels slightly roomier with thinner front pillars that increase the visibility and narrows the door panel to open up more elbow. The door panel controls can also move higher, allowing the knees to move very freely. The front seats have been redesigned and are not only comfortable and supportive but have thinner backs that give the rear seats more legroom.

The most notable improvement is in regard to interior design and materials. The previous models have a mismatch of poorly fitted hard plastic which has been replaced with better construction and a more pleasing array of textures. The SE trim in particular has a type of hip video that the Toyota Camry has never possessed in forever.
