The new generation of Toyota Camry was presented to the world public at the international North American Detroit auto show in 2017, and its debut on the domestic market is scheduled for spring 2018. This is a full-fledged new generation, not another restyling. It received the internal factory index XV70, moved to a new modular TNGA platform, got a stunning interior and fascinating design. First of all, I would like to note the narrow quadrilateral headlamps. They are a bit like the lighting equipment on the XV40 body, and are also equipped with small focusing lenses. The radiator grille is made in the form of a narrow slit adjacent to the sections of led running lights. It serves more of a decorative role and flaunts the manufacturer’s logo. Under it, along the entire length of the front bumper, there is a huge air intake. It consists of a set of tightly fitted horizontally oriented ribs and gives the front a truly luxurious appearance. In General, the model received a new, more interesting design, but at the same time, it has retained its family features and is still perfectly recognizable on the road.
The Toyota Camry is a five-seat, four-door business class sedan. Its overall dimensions are: length 4879 mm, width 1839 mm, height 1445 mm, and wheelbase-2825 mm. The model has an average clearance of 160 millimeters. This landing is typical for most passenger cars. They hold the road well, can drive on a medium-sized curb and do not lose stability, even at relatively high speeds. The suspension of the car is completely independent with anti-roll bars. The front is classic, For this layout, McPherson struts, and the back is a multi – link.
The trunk of the sedan is quite roomy, despite the full-size spare wheel, depending on the position of the second row of seats, the rear remains from 400 to 428 liters of free space. Thanks to this volume, the model will cope well with everyday tasks of an ordinary motorist, as well as with long-distance country trips.
The backbone of the Toyota Camry power palette is two in-line atmospheric fours for 2 and 2.5 liters. Thanks to the proprietary timing system, they develop 150 and 181 horsepower, accelerate the car to a hundred in 11 and 9.9 seconds,and consume about 7.1-8.3 liters of gasoline per hundred kilometers in a mixed cycle. For fans of hotter, the manufacturer can offer an atmospheric V6 petrol for 3.5 liters. The solid volume allowed the engineers to squeeze out 249 horsepower in the range of 5,000 to 6,600 crankshaft revolutions per minute and accelerate the sedan to hundreds in 7.7 seconds. The appetites of this engine are appropriate – 8.7 liters of fuel per hundred in the combined cycle.
Over the years, the Camry has become a kind of benchmark for this segment. It has a rather nice and noble design that perfectly emphasizes the character and status of its owner in society. Such a car will look great both in a busy city stream and on high-speed highways. The interior is a realm of luxury, calculated ergonomics and impeccable comfort. Even traffic during rush hour or a long trip will not be able to deliver the owner and the slightest inconvenience. The manufacturer is well aware that models of this segment, first of all, should give pleasure from driving. That is why, under the hood of the sedan is a technological and reliable unit, which is a fusion of proven technologies and legendary Japanese quality. Toyota Camry is perfect for both family and corporate use.
