Toyota Camry 2021 review: SL snapshot

The SL now wears an MSRP of $46,990.
The SL is the top-spec Camry, which is now only available with the brand's renowned hybrid powertrain.

The SL is the top-spec Camry, which is now only available with the brand's renowned hybrid powertrain.

Now that the V6 has been axed and the Camry range has been tweaked for the 2021 model year, the SL now wears an MSRP of $46,990.

The SL is a more luxurious alternative to the sporty SX, and has the entry car's softer suspension tune, and downgrades the alloy wheels to 18-inch rather than the 19-inch ones that appear on the SX.

Other upgrades for the SL include some slight visual tweaks, a leather-appointed interior with heated and cooled front seats, a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree parking camera suite, and a holographic head-up display. There are still some tech items missing from the Camry range, like a fully digitised dash and wireless phone connectivity.

The SL's equipment adds to the existing equipment on lower grades such as fully automatic LED headlights, a 9.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, built-in sat-nav, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry with push-start ignition, and a reversing camera.

The SL comes with the full array of safety equipment, including auto emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, traffic-sign recognition, and adaptive cruise control. All Camry variants carry a maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating to the 2017 standards.

The only available 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid drivetrain offers a combined output of 160kW/221Nm and drives the front wheels only via a continuously variable automatic transmission.
