Only three years after its debut, the Toyota Camry gets a surprisingly extensive refresh for 2015. The reason? With recently refreshed versions of the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, and others, competition is strong.

And with that kind of healthy market rivalry, Toyota is in effect not resting on its laurels; it’s given what it calls a sweeping redesign to the Camry for 2015—with a completely new look for the interior and exterior, added noise insulation, and upgraded driving dynamics. While the change in appearance isn’t radically different, it looks updated, more refined, and more contemporary inside and out. And the most significant change are under the skin. The Camry gets what Toyota calls an aggressive front-end appearance, with LED front running lamps plus available LED auto-leveling lamps for the low and high beams. Taillights get a new design that tapers in with the side sheetmetal, and a ‘decorative garnish’—read chrome bar—runs across the trunk. Toyota calls that cue sporty, although it’s a generic cliche.

The somewhat downmarket look and more ‘chunky’ feel of the outgoing Camry’s dash have been wiped away, with a ‘high-tech’ look for the center stack and a newfound attention to materials and details. Upper dash areas now have soft-touch trims, and the area just ahead of the shift knob gets an enclosed bin for personal electronics, with a USB port and available wireless charging pad (as in the larger Avalon).The 2015 Toyota Camry has changed significantly in several important ways that may affect performance, yet in some other core ways—the engine and transmission, for example—the Camry hasn’t changed one bit.

For the most part, that's just fine. The base 2.5-liter twin-cam four-cylinder engine, with Dual VVT-i variable valve timing, makes 178 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of peak torque, while the available 3.5-liter V-6 makes 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. Both of these engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Neither of these engines includes direct injection (or turbocharging, of course), but the V-6 especially has great drivability, and more than enough power for any situation, even with a full load of passengers and luggage. As for the four-cylinder, it should be just fine for most drivers, and it's very smooth; but it's a little sluggish off the line, and often feels strained to pull off a leisurely pass or climb a gradual grade until the transmission delivers a downshift or two. It exposes the advantage of the more recently reengineered powertrains in many of the Camry's rivals, frankly. Luckily the transmission responds promptly and decisively—in a way that the CVTs in some rival models can't.
