I thought the last body change was a move in the direction of better.
This I'm pretty sure is a step back towards the pack.
A significant redo was definitely necessary for the Camry. It looks good and should bring in buyers who thought the current models were stodgy and boring - which they are. Regardless of some of the recent issues with Toyotas, they will continue to be excellent, well-made vehicles. If you don't have a real preference for a particular brand of car, I've always said you can't go wrong buying a Toyota - and that still goes.
It is very interesting to me that the current styling trends for sedans all seem to be based on the ground-breaking styling of the current series of Hyundai Sonatas. When Hyundai rolled out that car a few years ago, it set the styling standard for pretty much every sedan vehicle from every manufacturer since. From the Ford Focus to the Chevrolet Malibu to the new Chrysler 200. Just about all the sedans out now clearly took the styling cue from 2011 model year Sonata.
Oh well, guess somebody's running out of ideas. Back end looks like the 2013 Honda Civic; lower front like a monstrous overkill of the Ford Focus and side panels are rather Honda Accord-ion like.
Insides look decent so we'll hope for safety and reliability to save the day. Otherwise, the dang thing is UGLY!
