Camry Q&A: Why doesn’t it look much different?

Why didn’t they change the car’s styling even more?

From multiple people on Facebook and YouTube 

AutoTrader: While the 2012 Camry has been redesigned, it does look a little like previous car. That’s not a mistake; Toyota knows that dramatically changing such a popular, high volume car might turn off some existing customers.

But if you look closely, you can see that there are some significant changes. For example, the front end is a little sleeker, and the overall appearance is lower and wider, giving it a slightly more aggressive stance. And from the rear the new Camry looks a little tighter and more contemporary. Extra chrome on the hybrid and bigger wheels with low profile tires on the sporty SE give those cars a distinct look that’s still recognizable as a Camry.
