Trying to keep a floodgate closed is no easy task. Just ask any automaker releasing embargoed images of a new car coming out. When it's something as prolific as a new Toyota Camry, it's bound to get out like water through cracked concrete. And in this case, it's gotten out of our French Canadian neighbors to the north.

While Toyota has been releasing tightly-cropped teaser images of its new bread-and-butter family sedan, showing little more than the head and tail lights, the new annual auto guide has come out in Quebec, complete with full-frame shots of the new Camry for all the poutine-slurping, hockey-watching world to see.

We could go on about the edgier styling of this latest rendition of the longstanding best-selling vehicle in America, but we'd just as soon let you see it for yourself. So click on to view the scans of the guidebook in our high-resolution image gallery, courtesy of our astute reader James, whom we thank for the tip.

      There's a nice dose of exactly what I was expecting.

        Acura TSX. LOL anyways yes there are quite a lot of resemblances. This is a piss poor redesign.

        It actually resembles much older Camrys whose styling cues have long stayed around on other cars. It looks like a TSX because a TSX looks like a 1999 Camry Solara in the headlights.

      Despite the Acura TSX-ish front and Subaru Legacy tail-lights...and blahness overall...they will sell a ridiculous amount of them no matter how numb/boring/dull/copycat it is. And really, what do we know as commenters? All anyone here demands is a Turbo Diesel Wagon with a manual transmission and we know how that would sell. The masses like their appliances as dull as their dishwasher.

        Exactly... not everyone is an enthusiast looking for something fun to drive or with substance on the way to look. Some people even like the fact it doesn't stand out.

      is it just me or does it look more like a Corolla ? It's a step backwards

        Thank you! I see the exact same thing. I would much rather have Vtec than VVT-i any day.
      BMW ROCKS!

      You mean I just bought a new TSX, and now it will be mistaken for a Camry? Nooooooooooo!

      "We could go on about the edgier styling...", well good luck with that seeing how there is nothing "edgy" about this car. If it were the 2001 Camry it still wouldn't be "edgy".

      We already saw what it is going to look like from the Camry Hybrid getting filmed for a commercial. It was definitely designed to offend the least amount of people - especially the mainstream sedan buying masses. It is not groundbreaking by any stretch, inside or out, but at least it looks better the the current one and actually looks better than the bloated Accord, which actually got uglier in the mid-cycle refresh. The interior looks easier to use than the button-fest accord. Hopefully the interior materials have gotten better, the current Camry has pedestrian materials.

      Hehehe I got all giggly inside when I saw this! :) Lol joking... but seriously, it's not that it looks so blah, it's just too derivative to other sedans out there. Oh well, it's not like anyone buying a Camry wants to stand out.
