2018 Toyota Camry First Test Review: Big Improvement but is it Enough?

  2018 Toyota Camry First Test Review: Big Improvement but is it Enough? The Toyota Camry is still the one to beat in the midsize car segment. Sales through October of this year already total 308,759. The only other sedan close to that level is the Honda Accord at 277,542 for the first 10 months. So with everyone in the field gunning for the all-new 2018 Camry, we were anxious to get some of our own test numbers to see if the king has pedigree worthy of retaining the crown for the foreseeable future.

That was the question I had to ask myself following a week behind the wheel of the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE.

In January 2018, I attended the North America International Auto Show in Detroit where the company introduced the new version of its best selling Camry to a standing-room only crowd.

“It’s the best mid-size sedan we’ve yet produced – one that will deliver everything Canadians have come to expect from Camry, and a whole lot more,” said Cyril Dimitris, vice-president, Toyota Canada Inc.

The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid is better than good in almost every way. It has a comfortable, well-appointed interior with one of the best infotainment systems on the market. It also gets good fuel economy and costs less to own than its gas-only sibling, the 2015 Toyota Camry .

The Camry has been the best selling car in the U.S. for the past 15 years and the best selling car in its segment in Canada for the past two years.

So to make changes takes guts but as the saying goes, the only constant is change and Toyota realized some of its competitors were catching up to it so a change was needed.

My tester for the week was the Camry Hybrid LE. The Hybrid comes in three models, the LE, SE and XLE.

The XLE comes with a lot more bells and whistles in the area of the entertainment system, seats and comfort but the LE was well equipped and didn’t scrimp where it counted, under the hood.

All Hybrid Camrys feature a four-cylinder, 2.5-litre, Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder DOHC, 16-valve engine with variable valve timing producing 176 hp and 163 lb/ft of torque with an electric motor with 118 hp and 149 lb/ft of torque for combined 208 hp.

On the electrical storage side, the LE features a lithium-ion battery (259-volt) while the SE and XLE get a nickel-metal hydride battery (245-volt).

My week in the Camry helped me understand why some drivers like to drive a Hybrid, especially when you add up the gas savings. I usually spend about $50 a week in gas but with the Camry, I filled the tank at a cost of $25 before I returned it to head office in Scarborough.

Even after a week in the Hybrid I still wasn’t use to pushing the start button and hearing nothing. Not a sound. The electric motor is very, very quiet. When the engine does come in it is very seamless and when you push your foot on the accelerator and hear the throaty roar of the exhaust, you know the electric motor is taking a break. With 208 horsepower and 163 lb/ft of torque the Camry is more than capable of keeping up with traffic wherever you are.

Four Things to Love About the 2019 Toyota Avalon

  Four Things to Love About the 2019 Toyota Avalon Adaptive suspension, exhaust tuning, and infotainment fixesDespite declining sales as buyers continue to shift toward SUVs, Toyota put a lot of noticeable effort into the redesign of the full-size Avalon sedan. Much like the 2018 Camry, the 2019 Toyota Avalon brought a much-needed update to a very outdated model. This is a ground-up redesign, and brought with it a bundle of extra technology that makes the Avalon one of the most desirable in its segment. Here are four of our favorite new features.

Sure, the seventh generation of Toyota's bread-and-butter sedan shows a sharper look, including a That's not where the changes end, however. For one thing , the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid offers an The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Camry Hybrid the best possible rating of

The Camry has a continuously variable transmission that makes going through the eight gears as smooth as butter. The LE is the only version that doesn’t have paddle shifters, but I don’t think those are ever necessary on a car. Let the car do the work and if you want to shift gears, buy a standard.

The interior of the Camry is well laid out and comfortable with plenty of room in the back row for three adults. The LE hybrid comes with a seven-inch display screen, while the SE and XLE get an eight-inch screen. While the entertainment system does everything it is supposed to, it is a shame Toyota does not let Apple Car Play or Android Auto connect to the system.

The Camry has an Entune Audio system that features a suite of apps from weather to traffic but I never once used it. I am too comfortable with my iPhone and didn’t want to take the time to use the Entune system. Maybe if I was to buy a Camry I would but my preference would be to connect my iPhone and use the apps I am comfortable with such as Google maps.

As I mentioned before, the LE comes with a long list of standard features including Toyota’s Safety Sense which includes a pre-collision system, pedestrian detection and lane departure alert (which I now automatically turn off because I find it too sensitive on most vehicles.)

The Worst Cars to Buy New Are Among the Best to Buy Lightly Used

  The Worst Cars to Buy New Are Among the Best to Buy Lightly Used Let someone else take the massive depreciation hit the moment it rolls off the lot.iSeeCars.com analyzed over 6 million model year 2016 and 2017 cars sold between Aug. 1, 2017 and Jan. 24, 2018 to find out which cars were like my BRZ, a bad idea to buy new due to a huge depreciation hit, but a good idea to buy used for the very same reason. Eight models had suffered at least a 30 percent hit after leaving the lot just one year before.

Extensively updated last year, the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a midsize hybrid sedan in midseason form. Good thing , too, because there's more competition than ever. The Camry Hybrid used to be the obvious choice in this segment

That’s the dilemma for anyone considering the 2018 Toyota Camry or the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid . We we pitted these two very similar cars against each other to see if one was indeed better than the other.

Other standard features are: eight-way power seats; tire pressure monitoring system; sport, eco and normal drive mode; a key remind warning (a must have with a push-button start); hill assist control and rack and pinion steering.

Sexy or really sexy,” was the way Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota, described the Camry when he introduced in Detroit last January.

I’ll agree with “sexy”.

I don’t think a family sedan can be “really sexy” but the 2018 Camry Hybrid will have you smiling from ear to ear when you travel in style and think about the money you are saving at the gas pump.

Hybrid Ferrari 488 Prototype Caught Testing In Complete Silence .
Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your speakers. The Ferrari 488 Pista is the fastest, most powerful version of the sports car the company has built to date. Complete with a biturbocharged 3.9-liter V8, the 488 Pista is good for 711 horsepower (530 kilowatts) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque – but it could be the last of a dying breed. Ferrari is testing out a hybrid powertrain on its 488, as this video clearly proves.
