2010 Toyota Camry Interior

This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.

The 2010 Camry offers one of the most comfortable interiors available at this price point, with excellent ergonomics, up-to-date electronics and easy-to-use climate and entertainment systems. However, some reviewers point to a few problems in fit and finish that are unusual for Toyota.

  • "Notably, build and materials quality aren't up to the high standard set by previous-generation Camrys. Some plastics are substandard, and panel fitments aren't uniformly precise. The Camry's interior isn't bad by any means, but it's no longer above average for this segment." -- Edmunds
  • "Cabin materials are generally solid and serviceable." -- Consumer Guide
  • "A well-utilized interior." -- Car and Driver
  • "The cockpit is easily the best of any Camry yet." -- Orlando Sentinel
  • "The interior is a work of swank modernity." -- Washington Post
  • "Overall, it's hard to find any faults in the Camry's interior, but it's also hard to find anything that really stands out as something we like." -- Left Lane News
  • "The Camry's cabin possesses an airier feel, giving the impression of even more space inside than there is." -- Road and Track

Seating

It's easy to find a comfortable driving position in the 2010 Camry, but some reviewers say the front seats don't provide as much support as those in some rival cars. A few say the same of the rear seats.

  • "Combining that steering wheel -- which finally telescopes -- with a driver's seat that now goes farther back than ever before means nearly anyone can get comfortable." -- Automotive.com
  • "The Camry's driving position is good but we found the seats to be uncomfortable due to a large lumbar support that didn't have any kind of adjustment." -- Left Lane News
  • "Taller folks will likely find the lower seat cushions just too short, and the backrests are noticeably devoid of mid-back support." -- BusinessWeek
  • "The Camry easily holds four people, but I wouldn't want to be the fifth, squeezed in the back seat for more than an hour or so." -- San Francisco Chronicle

Interior Features

The 2010 Camry boasts a long list of standard equipment, and features easy-to-use controls for climate and entertainment functions. Toyota addressed reviewer complaints about the upscale JBL stereo system standard on XLE models (and optional on lower trims). The old stereo was not intuitive to operate. For 2010, an improved version is available, but there are few reviewer comments on the new unit. Some reviewers find the Camry's available navigation system difficult to learn.

  • "As far as features go, the list is long and complete. Even the base model comes equipped with a decent array of standard goodies." -- Automobile.com
  • "The three rotary HVAC controls are even larger and equally intuitive and can be adjusted while you're wearing gloves." -- Car and Driver
  • "The pastel blue-green lighting around the optional navigation system reminds us of Miami Beach, and we love the separate on/off switches for the audio and navigation systems. The dual switches are a departure from most other vehicles today, which have a single on/off switch. So if you want the nav but no audio, you have to crank the volume all the way down, and still run the risk of picking up interference." -- New Car Test Drive
  • "The navigation system/stereo on our vehicle desperately needed a usability expert's time, and quite a bit of it. Though the screen is very attractive, with shadowing for detail, it proved to be rather hard to accomplish many simple tasks, and the tendency of the unit to respond with slowness did not help." -- A Car Place

Cargo

The Camry's 14.5 cubic feet of available cargo space is typical for a midsize car. Reviewers say the trunk is a useful shape, and the Camry offers many interior stowage areas.

  • The trunk has "a useful shape, though the sickle-shaped lid hinges intrude and the trunk opening is too small for really bulky items. All but SE and XLE have folding rear seatbacks. SE has a fixed seatback with a center pass-through. XLE's rear seat is split 40/20/40, has manually reclining seat backs, and a fold down center armrest with a pass-through. Cabin storage is ample in all models." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The trunk shows signs of cost-cutting, though; grocery hooks are jammed into a corner, where they are almost useless, and the pass-through area when the seats are folded down is tiny." -- About.com
  • "There's a nice selection of cubbies and compartments to collect whatever personal effects that may be accompanying you." -- Edmunds
  • "Storage cubbies are plentiful and there are two 12-volt outlets in the console." -- Kelley Blue Book
