Toyota Camry Sport
The first thing that catches the eye when looking at the brand-new sedan is the company large position that arises from the reduced center of gravity.

At the same time, the traveler gets a different environment, highlighted by a sense of visibility and the soft-touch surface areas and also the veneer in the dashboard.
Although it was originally believed that Toyota will certainly terminate the venerable 3.5-liter V-6 and also select a turbocharged four-cylinder rather, the midsize car continuouslies make use of a normally aspirated six-cylinder. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder was likewise kept, as was the crossbreed drivetrain based upon the very same four-pot unit.
However, all three drivetrains have actually been upgraded with a large concentrate on improving fuel economic climate.
There huges news in the suspension department too, where the brand-new TNGA architecture enabled Toyota to use a sportier setup.

For this quantity, you obtain the base L model, yet an additional $505 will obtain you the LE trim at $24,000. Next up is the SE, valued from $25,000, while the XLE and XSE cost $28,450 and $29,000 before alternatives, respectively.
The XLE as well as XSE are highlighted by a toned rocker panel, new 19-inch black machined-finish alloy wheels (XSE only) a subtle back looter lip, aggressive front bumper, as well as back bumper with an integrated lower diffuser. The front fascia sports larger side consumption flanking the reduced bumper, a high and slim top intake around the main Toyota badge, as well as a various mesh grille.
