The 2018 Toyota Camry reviews are out

The 2018 Toyota Camry is one of the most anticipated models of the year, and for good reason. Incredibly popular, the Camry has been a staple on Canadian roads for more than two decades, and it remains one of the best-selling vehicles in North America. Toyota engineers therefore could not take any changes with they decided to redesign their flagship sedan.

Well, they ended up actually taking a lot of chances, and ultimately they completely changed the personality of the Camry. The good news, however, is that the 2018 Toyota Camry will continue to please those that loved it the way it was. Buyers that felt it needed a bit more personality the sportiness department should also be very happy.

Featuring two engines that develop an industry-leading 206 horsepower and 301 horsepower, the 2018 Toyota Camry has more bite than the previous generation – or any generation – while still being comfortable and refined. Oh, and there is also a hybrid engine as well. Here’s what the media had to say about the 2018 Toyota Camry.

Here are just a few reviews of the 2018 Toyota Camry

The 2018 Toyota Camry remains among the most competitive mid-size sedans, with a sleeker design, higher fuel economy, and carefully calibrated features and options for every buyer.

In an effort to banish the Camry’s bland image, Toyota gave the latest generation a more expressive design, used a more sophisticated suspension to improve driving and handling, and delivered better fuel efficiency than any previous Camry lineup.

The Camry Hybrid models use the latest generation of the Toyota two-motor hybrid system, first launched in the 2016 Prius. The Camry Hybrid uses a 176-hp 2.5-liter engine tuned to run most efficiently in combination with electric motors to power the car under light demand. A new Sport Mode in the Camry Hybrid lets drivers move through six simulated "gears" in the electronically continuous variable transmission if they choose; we found it largely superfluous.

Like the Prius, the battery pack of the Camry Hybrids sits under the rear seat rather than in the trunk. That gives identical trunk space in the standard and hybrid models – The Car Connection

The Camry is the archetypal midsize family sedan. Though it has grown larger over many generations, the latest, redesigned 2018 model checks in at roughly the same exterior dimensions as its predecessor. That's fine — it's plenty big enough already, thanks. The 2018 Camry's styling is a big departure from the norm, however.

You can sense the difference from 10 paces away. The uninspiring styling we've come to expect on the Toyota Camry has been replaced with a lower and sleeker look. But sleeker doesn't mean reduced headroom and reduced visibility because the seats, hood and side glass have dropped a similar amount. In fact, we figure that interior space has been enhanced.

Much of the credit goes to the stiffer platform and its double-wishbone rear suspension, the key element that makes this Camry different from any produced in the last 30-plus years – Edmunds.com

Inside and out, the new XLE gives off a premium vibe foreign to Camrys of yore. Built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), the 2018 Camry rides on a 2.0-inch-longer wheelbase and is about an inch and a half longer, an inch lower, and three-quarters of an inch wider. The resulting proportions and elegantly sloping roofline give it a more substantial, upscale look. Brightwork is delicately applied. But for the XLE’s unfortunate grimace of a front end, it almost could be mistaken for an entry-luxury sedan.

That impression is reinforced when you drop into the driver’s seat. Passenger space is virtually unchanged and glass area remains plentiful, so the cabin once again feels roomy, airy, and open. The interior materials, finishes, and design details are surprisingly rich. Our dark-brown XLE’s standard furnishings included quilted leather seats in a subtle, two-tone tan that reminded us of the chairs in more expensive sedans. Soft surfaces abound, and hard plastic trim pieces are well disguised – Car&Driver
