Toyota revamped its best-selling model in America, the Toyota Camry, this week. The globally popular mid-size sedan entered its eighth generation with the latest model year update. Here’s a pictorial comparison of the 2018 Toyota Camry with the 2015 Toyota Camry.
The 2018 Toyota Camry puts on the company’s “Keen Look” design language to get an evolutionary makeover and has gotten much bigger in size. The redesigned Camry is 0.4 inches (10.16 mm) longer, 0.7 inches (17.78 mm) wider and 1.2 inches lower, and has a 1.9 inch (30.48 mm) longer wheelbase. The all-new model is a lot more expressive and sportier compared to the seventh generation.
The Toyota Camry’s interior gets thoroughly redesigned for the eighth generation model, but like the exterior, it is not strikingly different. Then again, like the exterior, even small visual changes have made big differences. Consider the centre console’s waterfall design for instance, which makes the cabin look more elegant and luxurious. For improving the comfort, the front seats are completely reengineered, and the rear-seat accommodations, refined.
10-inch colour head-up display, 7-inch MID in the instrument cluster and 8-inch Entune 3.0 infotainment system Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link with Moving Maps (2.5L gasoline, 2.5L hybrid)/Dynamic Navigation system (V6 gasoline) are a few of the key technology features found inside the 2018 Camry.
Toyota Safety Sense P suite of advanced active safety features is standard. It includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA); and Automatic High Beams (AHB). That is in addition to reversing camera, ten airbags and the company’s Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, EBD, BA and Smart Stop Technology.
The 2018 Toyota Camry is underpinned by the GA-K version of the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) modular platform and will be available with an all-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. Additionally, there will be a hybrid model, powered by an electrified 2.5-liter engine.
Toyota is yet to reveal the global version of the Camry which will serve all markets outside the USA.
