In a full model change in March 1982, the existing Celica Camry was reborn as the Camry sedan, mounting the engine transversely in a front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout for the first time as a Toyota car. The sister model Vista was also released at the same time.

The 4-door notchback sedan body had rear quarter windows and a 2,600 mm-long wheelbase, making the medium-class sedan appear even more spacious than some higher-grade models. The instrument panel featuring digital meters was still a novelty at the time. In addition to the originally available combination of a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine with a carburetor and a 5-speed manual transmission, a 4-speed automatic with overdrive was offered in July, followed by a model with a 2-liter 120 PS 4-cylinder SOHC EFI engine (2S-ELU) and an electronically controlled 4-speed ECT-S automatic transmission in August. A 1.8-liter turbo diesel engine (1C-TL) option was added in August 1983 (the displacement was expanded to 2-liter in 1985), and a sports twin-cam 160 PS engine (3S-GELU) was made available in June 1984.
