Toyota Camry

 

As a mid-sized sedan, Toyota Camry is among the top competitors in this class. It offers reliability, a bold look, comfortable interior and an impressive engine.

The Camry is the forerunner in Toyota's midsize sedan category. Toyota has always had a reputation for providing quality, reliable vehicles at a great value. 2016 is no exception. The 2016 Toyota Camry is packed with an available powerful V6 engine, improved cabin seating with above average rear spacing and a sporty design. It's no wonder Toyota Camry bagged this year's Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value award for midsize sedans.

After the 2015 overhaul of Toyota Camry, this year's lineup carries over much of the improvements from last year. The only addition is the Special Edition trim that adds items like exclusive paint choices, smoked taillights, a sportier gauge, 18-inch alloy wheels and blue interior accents. XLE and XSE trim levels now include a 7-inch infotainment display as well.

The 2016 Toyota Camry is an ideal choice for those looking for a cost-effective sedan. It offers a combination of driving pleasure with a bold youthful look -- it's the brains and beauty kind of car, making it a preferred choice for sedan buyers.

Profile

The Toyota Camry has an eye-catching exterior. While already stylish and edgy at the base level, those who want even more design-wise, can upgrade to the SE, Special Edition or XSE trim levels for more aggressive or sportier features.


Power and Performance:

Toyota Camry is available with either a four cylinder or V6 engine. Both engines have powerful and respectable output of 178 horsepower for the inline-4 and 268 horsepower for the V6. Those looking for a hybrid engine should check out Toyota Camry's 2016 hybrid version. While its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine delivers decent horsepower, it goes up to 200 horsepower when combined with the electric motor of the Hybrid Synergy Drive system.

With last year's updates came retuned shocks, a stiffer body and additional insulation - changes that now result a quiet, comfortable ride with even better stability. Whether you choose the four cylinder, the V6 or the hybrid version, you're in for a pleasant ride.


Interiors and Special Features:

Inside Toyota Camry, you'll find a spacious cabin with clean lines and easy-to-read gauges. Most models have a 6.1 inch touch screen, except the V6 models which are equipped with a 7.0-inch display instead. The dash is accented by stitching to add texture. The Camry also has split-folding rear seatbacks. It has an average-sized cargo area with 436 litres of trunk space.


Safety features:

Toyota Camry comes with ten standard airbags - a leader in its class. Other safety features on the base model include anti-lock disk brakes, stability and traction control, electronic brake-force distribution, a rearview camera and a Smart Stop Technology brake-override system. XSE and XLE are equipped with blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert system and adaptive cruise control. Exclusive to the XLE is Safety Connect, which is an automatic collision notification system, an emergency assist button and a stolen vehicle locator. An upgrade with a Technology package adds lane-departure warning with auto high beam and a collision mitigation system.

Toyota Camry received five stars for overall protection in government crash tests. It garnered four stars for frontal-impact protection and five stars for side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Camry its highest possible rating of "Good" for the moderate-overlap impact test, the small-overlap frontal offset impact test, side-impact, roof strength and whiplash protection. It also gets an "advanced" rating for front crash protection; earning the Toyota Camry the Top Safety Pick+ accolade.

Overall, Toyota Camry is the top choice for mid-sized sedans due to a beautiful exterior profile, a powerful engine, superior safety ratings and a reliable reputation.
