You’ve probably seen plenty of people taking the “decade challenge” on social media: posting a side-by-side comparison of themselves with pictures from 2010 and 2020. This challenge can be pretty entertaining, and it’s a good reminder that a lot can change in a decade! At Steve Landers Toyota, we’ve decided to take a “decade challenge” of our own and compare the 2010 Toyota Camry with the new 2020 model.

The exterior of the 2010 Camry was much more reserved than the 2020 model. The 2010 model's front fascia was equipped with a honeycomb style grille, smoked tint halogen headlamps, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The sleek silhouette expressed the sporty, youthful attitude of the car, complimenting its outstanding performance and capability. 



The exterior of the 2020 Toyota Camry has greatly evolved since 2010, and is arguably the most shocking change made. At first glance, the 2020 model looks way too cool to be a Camry. The front fascia makes an impression with its prominent, robust stance. It’s sleek, sporty design conveys its breathtaking performance and thrilling driving experience. The sport side rocker panels and rear spoiler not only enhance the car’s overall aesthetic, but also redirect airflow for improved performance and reduced wind noise. Wherever you go in the 2020 Toyota Camry, you’re sure to turn heads.


Engine, Performance, and Efficiency 


The 2010 Toyota Camry was equipped with a  2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. Available on all trim levels except for the base Camry was a 3.5-liter V6 that produced 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5-liter engine produced 169 horsepower and 167 ft.-lb. of torque, and had fuel economy of 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway. 


The 2020 Toyota Camry had a big boost in muscle and performance! The 2020 Toyota Camry has a 3.5-liter V6 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an  8-Speed Automatic transmission. The 3.5-liter engine produces a whopping 301 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 2.5-liter engine produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2020 Toyota Camry’s fuel efficiency has increased significantly as well, with the 2.5-liter engine clocking in at 29 mpg city and 41 mpg highway. The 3.5-liter engine gets 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.





The 2010 Toyota Camry was offered in four trim levels: base, LE, SE, and LXE. Available seat upholstery included leather or high-quality fabric in the colors Ash, Bisque, or Dark Charcoal. The dashboard and control design was straight-forward and user-friendly, with key controls intelligently placed for users. There were plenty of storage solutions, too, including console side pockets, a large front console box with a power socket and auxiliary jack, and an accessory box behind the shift lever. As for technology and entertainment features, the 2010 Camry was pretty bare-bones in comparison to the 2020 model. However, it did have an available first and second row LCD monitor, a cd player, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, wireless phone connectivity, and available entertainment system with DVD. That was pretty high-tech by 2010 standards!



It may not have a DVD player, but the 2020 Toyota Camry has a lot to offer in terms of comfort and technology. There’s no need to dig in your pocket or purse to find your key anymore. With the 2020 Camry’s available Smart Key system, you can lock and unlock the front doors and open the trunk simply by carrying the smart key. Once inside, you can relax in the fabric, Sport Soft-Tex, or leather-upholstered seats and simply press the push button start to get moving. The inviting, driver-focused design of the dashboard and controls provides the ultimate experience in convenience and entertainment. The available 8-inch touchscreen allows users access to all their apps, entertainment, calls and texts, and more through Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity. Available 10-inch head-up display provides important information like speed, directions, and more right into the lower portion of the windshield, keeping the driver’s gaze focused on the road ahead. As if that wasn’t enough, the 2020 Camry also has available Wi-Fi Connect, an onboard system that turns your Camry into a wireless internet hotspot wherever you go, supporting up to five devices!
