Basically, the company is moving to consolidate the crown jewels across the mid-size sector – and now the Camry and two Crowns have like-minded front designs. Of course, there's logic behind the latest rumors that Toyota's president, Akio Toyoda, still lives in fear that his beloved Toyota will go back to being boring – when you have a uniform design across so many models, it's easy to lose track of them and think everything's always the same.
As such, maybe there's no need for so many like-minded models. The Crown may be superfluous when the Camry already inhabits the mid-size sedan space. But what about the new Crown Signia SUV? Well, no worries, some people have thought about that, too – albeit only across the imaginative realm of digital car content creators.
This virtual artist, better known as SRK Designs on social media, has decided to trust his CGI instinct and develop a dreamy Camry station wagon, for example. He started everything with the 2025 Camry, which is considered by some to be an extensive facelift of the current iteration rather than an all-new generation. Then, in his latest behind-the-scenes making-of video, the pixel master treated the Camry to some nimble CGI changes, enabling the persona of a station wagon.
However, just to make sure to draw a point home – that a Camry SW would make the all-new Crown Signia superfluous, he also made the new Camry station wagon adopt some of the crossover-like features of the Crown models, such as the extensive black plastic body cladding. Ultimately, it's just like the Crown Signia – only with Camry traits. Also, there is one last thing to add.
Another reason to think that a Camry wagon could easily compensate for the need for a crossover SUV like the Crown Signia is the powertrain – both the 2025 Camry and the 2025 Crown Signia use the same powertrain – a hybridized 2.5-liter A25A-FXS inline-four, only with slightly different outputs. As such, the FWD and AWD Camry models have 225 and 232 hp, respectively, while the Crown Signia has a total system output of 243 horsepower.
Also, there's another reason to want this unofficial Camry SW instead of the Crown Signia – the latter is allegedly destined to replace the popular 2024 Venza crossover SUV, which is currently way too cheap for Toyota's money-grabbing bosses, as it retails from $34,920 with hybrid power under the hood. Compare that to the regular 2024 Crown, which already starts from over $40k, and see for yourself if 243 hp really is worth so much over Venza's 219 horsepower rating. Personally, I think not!
