Not just provided a makeover, it's also sleeker, sportier, and also more stylish compared to its predecessor. It appears the brand-new Camry was produced to bridge the gap in between the boring Toyota vehicles and also the premium Lexus offerings. And that's not a poor idea. As usual, the revamped outside is jointed by a revamped inside with new designing and upgraded innovation. Toyota likewise cared for the drivetrain division by presenting three new engines, including a crossbreed. So exactly how good is the new Camry? Let's figure out the answer to this big concern in the testimonial listed below.
Update 6/21/2017: Toyota has actually introduced rates for the 2018 Toyota Camry, and the entry-level cost raised by simply $425. Have a look at the rates area below to learn everything about it.
Toyota Camry Xle V6
The first thing that stands out when looking at the new car is the firm vast stance that arises from the reduced center of mass. To achieve the last, Toyota made the Camry wider, while reducing the engine hood by 1.6 inches and the roof covering by one inch. By contrast, the wheelbase is 2 inches longer.
Conforming to what makes the brand-new four-door a lot more emotional as well as gives it a flashy and high end photo, Toyota used its Lexus brand as inspiration for the Camry. Up front, we could see a lot more hostile headlamps that are fairly similar to those seen on the new Lexus LX, minus the reduced LED strip that provides the latter a Z-shaped format. The grille is broader and larger, and even though it's nowhere near as menacing as Lexus' "Spindle" component, the reduced section is sportier compared to in the past.
The upper grille section and also emblem are now mounted in a body-colored component, while the side vents are dramatically larger. The muscle lines of the brand-new engine hood rounds up a front fascia that's lastly interesting more youthful drivers, me included.
While the new outside is sportier, fancier, yet evolutionary, the cabin is an enormous departure from the previous layout. While the outgoing Camry's inside is a collection of straight lines disturbed only by the center stack, the brand-new sedan is a much more organic proposition on the in.
The brand-new dashboard, which really feels modern-day and extra upscale than in the past, was designed with two main points in mind. First, it's intended to provide the vehicle driver the sensation that he's actually being in a cars. This is achieved via a cockpit-type area with the determines and the facility stack angled toward the driver. This is more assisted by the distinct personality line that streams below the instrument cluster as well as bisects the center console, hence separating the equipment shifter from the traveler side. At the same time, the guest gets a different environment, highlighted by a feeling of openness and also the soft-touch surfaces and also the veneer in the control panel.
Although it was initially believed that Toyota will phase out the venerable 3.5-liter V-6 and also go with a turbocharged four-cylinder instead, the midsize sedan continuouslies utilize a naturally aspirated six-cylinder. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder was also maintained, as was the hybrid drivetrain based on the very same four-pot device.
However, all three drivetrains have been revamped with a huge concentrate on enhancing gas economic situation.
There allows information in the suspension division too, where the brand-new TNGA architecture allowed Toyota to make use of a sportier setup. Especially, the Camry rides on a brand-new dual wishbone back shock absorber that provides the framework extra receptive handling and accurate steering, while likewise providing a comfortable ride around the city. Yet the suspension arrangement is the only thing in charge of the sporty handling and also boosted ride top quality. Toyota utilized considerably more ultra-high-tensile steel in this brand-new framework, thus raising the Camry's total rigidity. Toyota is so certain about the Camry's brand-new flashy ride that went as far as to claim that chauffeurs "will discover the dramatic improvements within the first few seconds of driving."
The new Camry is quite solid in terms of safety, showing off 10 common air bags and also the firm's Celebrity Safety System, that includes Boosted Car Security Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Circulation, Brake Help, Anti-lock Braking System, and also Smart Quit Modern Technology.

The package consists of Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (COMPUTER w/PD), Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Ship Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA), as well as Automatic High Beams (AHB). The much more expensive trims include conventional Dead spot Screen (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
As expected, valuing enhanced with the redesign, but the premium is just symbolic. Particularly, the new Camry retails from $23,495, which adds just $425 to the previous sticker. For this quantity, you get the base L design, but an additional $505 will get you the LE trim at $24,000. Successive is the SE, valued from $25,000, while the XLE and XSE cost $28,450 and also $29,000 prior to alternatives, specifically.
The XLE and also XSE are highlighted by a toned rocker panel, new 19-inch black machined-finish alloy wheels (XSE only) a refined rear spoiler lip, aggressive front bumper, and also rear bumper with an incorporated lower diffuser. The front fascia sports bigger side consumption flanking the lower bumper, a high as well as slim top intake around the central Toyota badge, and also a various mesh grille. A modified rear bumper and smoke-tinted taillights round off the adjustments at the rear.
Choosing the XLE with the V-6 engine boosts the sticker to $34,400, while the XSE with the very same engine starts from $34,950.
