Toyota unveiled a totally reworked Camry, the best-selling car in the U.S. for the last 12 consecutive years. The new model, being shown at the New York International Auto Show this week, features a more sleek exterior design and reworked interior.

The Japanese automaker said the 2015 Camry, which is being restyled halfway through its model life, is “rebuilt from the ground up” with about 2,000 new parts. Only the roof is shared with the vehicle currently on sale. This new version will go sale in the third quarter, Toyota said. Competition in the sedan market has heated up in recent years, with Honda, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai all attempting to steal Toyota’s crown.

Toyota has targeted sales of at least 400,000 Camrys this year, not far from sales in 2012 and 2013. First-quarter deliveries totaled 94,283, down 6.5 percent from a year earlier, according to Autodata Corp.
