Which should you buy, a 2019 or 2020? If you use an Android phone, the 2020 model is the obvious choice. If that isn’t a factor and you don’t want a TRD model, then a 2019 version should be cheaper.
Toyota is turning to performance to try to rev up sales of the 2020 Camry mid-size sedan, one of its consistently best-selling models, in an era when more buyers want SUVs than sedans.
A new TRD model comes with a V-6 engine, a firmer suspension, large brake rotors, 19-inch black alloy wheels, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and black and red exterior and interior trim, giving it a meaner look than other Camry models. The TRD starts at $32,125 (all prices include destination).
Choices for gas-engine models start with the base L with a base price of $25,380, $330 higher than 2019. Base prices are $280 higher on the XLE and XSE models, with those models starting at $30,410 and $30,960, respectively; they’re $370 higher on the LE and SE. The LE now starts at $25,925 and the SE at $27,125.
A 206-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard on all gas models except the TRD, and a 301-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 is available on the XLE and XSE. All gas models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Price increases for 2020 models are lower for the Camry Hybrid. The Hybrid LE and SE start at $29,385 and $31,085, respectively, just $30 more than in 2019. Base price on the Hybrid XLE is $33,685, a $245 decrease. All hybrid models come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, continuously variable automatic transmission, electric motor and hybrid battery pack (lithium-ion on the LE and nickel-metal hydride on the SE and XLE) for a combined 176 system hp.

Toyota gave the Camry edgier styling and better ride and handling with a 2018 redesign, along with a suite of safety features that includes automatic emergency braking and lane departure with steering assist. Camry’s long-standing reputation for reliability and value make it a more compelling choice among mid-size sedans.
