  • Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) with direct pressure readout - It is an electronic system that helps to monitor the tire pressure of all the wheels in real-time with the help of TPMS sensors.
  • Hill Start Assist Control - It prevents the car from rolling backward by automatically applying brakes. The brakes will only get released on throttle input.
  • Automatic engine shut-off - This feature automatically shuts off the engine after a predetermined period if the vehicle is left running.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) - It detects vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles with the help of radar and camera. It also does automatic braking to reduce the potential for a collision.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) - It is designed to warn the driver when the vehicle manages to move out of the lane, by detecting the lane markings on the road surface. It also uses gentle steering wheel assist if the system detects unintentional drifting out of the lane.
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB) - The camera that is present on the rearview mirror detects various forms of lights – including headlights, taillights, and ambient light. If the camera sees headlights approaching or tail lights getting closer, it turns off the high beams.
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) - It uses millimeter-wave radar to judge and analyze the speed and distance of the car ahead. It also automatically controls the speed of your car based on the car in front of you.

We continue to applaud Toyota's decision to make driver-assistance technology standard across its lineup. - Caranddriver

TRD is getting sharper and better

Pros - MY camry trd knows how to outperform, sequential smooth shifts, it has the best inside out design

Cons - Front grille has too much gloss, the rocker panel is too close to the ground

Toyota's Camry TRD is getting better and sharper with each year wihout any leftovers on the reliability One fun ride is how I can sum up my entire driving experience of TRD camry. It has the best transmission and power to compliment the driving. The Handling is pretty soft because of low cg and the sharp aerodynamic design keeps it composed on highways TRd has the best spoiler, dual tone paint job, brushed aluminum tipped exhausts, red brakes calipers inside the flat black alloy rims, and star safety system The seats have sport red inserts and are actually blended well with the name TRD. As pretty as it looks from the outside, it has an equally gratifying class on the inside You should look at it once in this dual tone gray/black paint job , flat black alloys and visible red brake calipers, red striped rocker panel and spoiler at the back. The only thing I might change soon is the too much glossy front grille Safety is taken care by the Toyota star safety sense I think it's going to be as reliable as a work horse The impeccable value of Toyota vehicles is not something new to the market. They not only make good looking and performing cars, they also focus on the long term reliability as well I always get a cheerful welcome and timely servicing from them

Family friendly.

Pros - Camry? edgier exterior design, twin exhaust tips cheap and reliable.

Cons - Average sized cargo space, interior not so comfortable design is weird.

An allrounder. Infotainment system are rightly placed in a proper field of view. $30k Red stitched interiors which makes it look very sporty for TRD edition. wide dark gray front grille makes the car look very majestic. Standard driving aids are equipped, Due to is low maintanece its is very reliable. It looks very sportive and edgy with a reasonable performance. very warm

The TRD Camry

Pros - TRD exclusive body styling. Smooth engine. Exhaust note.

Cons - No wireless charging. Standard audio system.

It definitely is an enthusiast's car who likes to take his/her family along. The engine packs a lot of punch in a smooth, refined manner. Its sporty enough to make even everyday driving fun. I wish TRD trim came with premium sound system and dual climate control like in top trims. It does get a backup camera, TFT display and smart key sytem. The generous red stitching over the complete interior makes the cabin look sporty enough. There's good amount of space in trunk as well. The two-tone paint job and aerodynamic body kit makes the Camry look sharp and stunning. It definitely turns a lot of heads for its price. All driving aids are standard in every 2021 Camry. I have total faith in Toyota's brand image in terms of reliability. I did manage to break a low APR finance deal. Scott was great throughtout the process, answering phone calls and texts without an hiccup! Great place to buy!
