The sedan market will experience a small shake up with the release of the 2018 Toyota Camry SE. The car has everything you want from a traditional sedan model, but Toyota has gone the extra mile with its design. For a long time, the Camry was one of the models that Toyota played it safe with but with 2018 the car giant might just have turned over a new leaf.
2018 Toyota Camry SE – Sporty Look
What makes the exterior of the 2018 Toyota Camry SE look so sleek is its suspension that is an inch lower than the previous model. It now has the look of a sports car with a longer and wider body that provides the stability needed when making sharp turns. The sports look continues to be highlighted by its side rocker panels and sports mesh front grille.
It has LED combination lights in the front and rear, and its windshield has a high solar energy absorption feature which features noise reducing technology. The 2018 Toyota Camry SE also has a single exhaust with chrome tips. Its eighteen-inch-tall tires are quite thin and are finished with chrome machine alloy.
The Interior of the Toyota Camry SE was designed for comfort and includes a climate control feature, air filter, and humidity detector. There is a backup camera that can show the projected path and 4.2-inch TFT display odometer. The seats are Soft Sportex and trimmed in the front. It has Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and the upper doors are trimmed with soft material. For the windows, jam protection security was included and the rear one has a timed defogger. The latest version of the Camry SE also has an anti-lockout feature.
For other devices that might be needed while driving, there is a power outlet and wireless mobile charger feature. It also has an app-based navigation system which is exceptional but still can’t compare to Google and Apple maps.
Efficient Engine and Improved Drive
The 2018 Toyota Camry SE still carries the feature that made Toyota a household brand: fuel-efficiency. Under its bonnet, it houses a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with a better stroking mechanism and it’s both direct and port injected. It’s a front wheel drive allowing for more space for packing in the trunk.
The 2018 Toyota Camry SE can produce up to 203 horsepower. However, the hybrid version can achieve 53 mpg on a highway. For safety, 10 air bags are in place with 3-point seat belts for all seats. It also has pedestrian awareness technology and automated braking.
Expected MSRP and Availability
The 2018 Toyota Camry SE is retailing at $25 200 which is quite fair for a sedan with its features. It will be released at the beginning of 2018.
