There are few things from the 1980s that we still use and appreciate today; gone are BETA machines, neon clothing, and Perfect Strangers. One exception is the 2018 Toyota Camry; with its roots dating back to 1980, the Toyota Camry is something that originated in the ‘80s, and is still loved today.
To be fair, the Camry has been consistently updated over the years and has proven to be one of the best-known nameplates worldwide and wins awards seemingly every time it's updated for a new model year, and has been the best-selling passenger car in the U.S. for years. That trend probably won’t change anytime soon, especially with Toyota unveiling the completely redesigned Camry recently that has people buzzing.
In a word - everything. Toyota started from scratch with the new Camry and what they came up with is a strikingly handsome sedan that is anything but boring. While many passenger cars are “safe” designs, the all-new Camry will stand out from the pack. The front end of the new Camry is bold and stylish with a front grille that can be mistaken for a smirk. This is one nice looking car.
The Camry will be made available in a range of trims, starting with the L; even the base model Camry comes standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense-P, LED headlights and taillights, an acoustic windshield and upscale wood interior trim. As you move up through the five different trims, each version will come with more practical features, along with cosmetic differences.
All 2018 Camrys come with a 2.5-litre engine, producing 206 ph and 186 lb-ft. of torque.
Toyota has always been known for fuel efficient engines, and the new Camry continues to deliver impressive results. The new entry-level hybrid model is 30 per cent more fuel efficient than the older, outgoing model. It delivers a minuscule 4.5L / 100km combined which is the same as the much smaller Toyota Prius. The Camry’s standard gasoline engine version still delivers 6.9L / 100km, a 26 per cent improvement over the outgoing version.
“The new Camry design aims to test the limits of performance and intelligence, infusing the high-end sedan with a refined feel. The design team began with a blank slate, using Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) as the basis for the all-new platform, units, electronics, and other core components. The result is a striking emotional character, stunningly beautiful design, responsive driving, and premium ride performance.” - Automotive World
