Toyota Camry Interior

Reviewers praise the 2014 Toyota Camry’s roomy and stylish cabin. However, some critics are divided on the quality of the sedan’s interior materials. Some reviewers like the Camry’s luxurious styling, which includes handsome stitching on the dash and door panels. However, others note that some plastic trim pieces don't fit perfectly.

  • "What the cabin design lacks in cohesiveness, it makes up for with generally good materials quality, especially the handsome stitching on the dash and door panels of upper trims." -- Edmunds
  • "Build quality may be an issue, however, as the plastic trim pieces at the bottom of the center stack were loose and creaky in two Camry models we tested. Also, the array of shapes and patterns may be a bit much for folks who like to keep things simple." -- AutoTrader
  • "The 2014 Toyota Camry interior is everything you should find in a mid-size sedan - roomy, comfortable, stylish and luxurious." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Much less organic than the outgoing bulge-a-riffic model, the new interior boasts a classy-looking stitched cross-line running through the top of the dashboard and a high-tech center stack that appears to float just slightly above the surface." -- Left Lane News (2012)

Seating

The 2014 Camry has standard cloth seats, while heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, leather-trimmed seats, SofTex faux leather seats and leather-trimmed seats with faux suede inserts are optional. Auto reviewers are impressed with the Camry’s comfortable and roomy interior, particularly its ample rear seating. Test drivers are also pleased with the Camry’s markedly smooth and quiet ride.

  • "The spacious rear seat is complemented by a nicely reclined seatback angle that helps the Camry match the Honda Accord for the most comfortable backseat in the class." -- Edmunds
  • "Whichever trim you choose, the backseat is palatial, providing ample leg and headroom along with excellent under-thigh support for taller passengers. You can certainly buy a bigger sedan than the Camry (Toyota's own Avalon comes to mind), but you probably won't need more rear passenger space than this." -- AutoTrader
  • "Along with the commendable ride and handling, the 2014 Camry also gets high marks for its quiet interior, which might even seem somewhat eerily silent." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Though the backseat is not as cavernous as a Volkswagen Passat's or Honda Accord's, it fits adults fine, with good headroom and a hump-free floor." -- Cars.com (2012)

Interior Features

The 2014 Toyota Camry comes standard with a 6.1-inch touch-screen display, a six-speaker stereo, an auxiliary audio jack, a USB port, a rearview camera (on 2014.5 models) and Bluetooth. The Camry offers optional features that include dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, a rearview camera, a 10-speaker JBL audio system and Toyota’s Entune system, which syncs with your smartphone to provide real-time traffic, weather, gas prices and stock information, as well as access to apps like Bing and Pandora Internet radio. Toyota provides a complimentary three-year subscription to Entune. Optional safety features include a blind spot monitoring system and a one-year trial subscription to Safety Connect, which offers emergency assistance, a stolen vehicle locator and collision notification.

Overall, reviewers say the Camry has legible gauges and buttons that are logically placed, though one reviewer notes difficulty reading the Camry’s touch-screen display in bright light. While auto writers find the Entune system to be helpful and intuitive, it requires installing an app on your phone and registering an account, which some reviewers say can be difficult. Additionally, reviewers note that for Entune to work properly, it must have a data connection through your smartphone.

  • "The Camry's primary gauges remain among the simplest and most legible in the business. As usual, Toyota nailed the ergonomics, too, thanks to big knobs and clearly marked physical and virtual buttons." -- AutoTrader
  • "Getting started with Entune can be a hassle, though, since you have to install an app on your phone and register for an account, plus you always need an active data connection to use it. The touch-screen interface has straightforward menus, but it's sometimes unresponsive to user touch." -- Edmunds
  • "Unfortunately, the audio/navigation touch screen is not shrouded or inset, so it can be difficult to read in bright light." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
  • "Toyota has never been an electronics leader, but its smooth operator Entune system is set to change that. The first comprehensive app-based infotainment system to hit the mainstream market, it will allow drivers to quickly locate just about anything their hungry and/or bored heart desires." -- Left Lane News (2012)

Cargo

The Toyota Camry has 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space. The Camry’s cargo space is typical for the class, but rivals like the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata have a bit more space. Reviewers like the Camry’s spacious trunk, but one wishes the trunk opening was larger to accommodate bigger items.

  • "If those passengers need to carry some gear they'll find the trunk is more than ample. …" -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "All Camrys have a generously sized, usefully shaped trunk, though the sickle-shaped lid hinges intrude and the trunk opening is a bit too small for really bulky items." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
