Detailed Review

The Toyota Camry has been in production for 36 years and now with the launch of 2018 Toyota Camry its sure that its going to stay in the market for long.

The Camry is one of the most successful cars in the industry. The major reason behind Camry's successful run is the fact that Toyota haven't done too much of experimentation with it. The Camry has always been a very basic car and it does all the basic things correctly and this is something that gives the Camry an edge over its rivals.

2018 Toyota Camry Exterior

6.4/10

“Toyota continues to up its game with the Camry's exterior style, and this newest model is its most daring yet. From front to back, the new Camry aims to show off its newfound athleticism and attitude.”- KelleyBlueBook

The 2018 Camry has been fully redesigned. The new design has given it a striking appearance and it looks sportier. The Camry is an instant eyeball grabber and gets a good street presence. The dimensions are small and apt for seating 5 people.

2018 Toyota Camry Engine

6.4/10

“The 2018 Camry has more spirit than its predecessor, which is most apparent in its more substantial steering and handling abilities. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder gives adequate shove in most conditions, and its new eight-speed automatic transmission is well-mannered.”- Edmunds

Engine and Performance

The Camry comes equipped with 2 engine specifications: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The V6 however, is just available for the XLE and XSE trims ass an option with both priced at $34,550 and $35,100 respectively. The 2.5-liter engine generates 208 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque while the 3.5-liter V6 makes 301 horsepower and massive 267 pound-feet of torque.

The 8-speed Automatic transmission is smooth and shifts are hassle-free. Even the downshifting is pretty decent in the Camry.

The underpowered rivals of the Camry, the Honda Accord and the Mazda 6 touring perform better in terms of acceleration. The Honda does 0-60 MPH in 7.3 secs. while the Mazda does it in just 7.1 secs.

Ride and Handling

The ride quality and handling of the Camry has improved a lot when compared to its predecessor. The engine responses are sharper and the gear shifts are more refined. Driving the Camry has become sportier and driving it is fun.

The Camry does handle really well. There isn’t much of body roll and is well mannered. The steering isn’t sharp like a sports car but you do feel connected and the level of feedback from the steering wheel is good. It is a docile car and will readily follow all your commands.

Braking

The Camry is equipped with the largest brakes in the segment. It gets 12 inches diameter discs up front and 11.1 inches diameter discs at the rear. Slam the brakes and the Camry will come to a halt at a distance of 122 feet from 60 MPH.

There’s no car that betters the braking stats of the Camry. The Ford Fusion Sedan too comes to a standstill at 122 feet from 60 MPH. The Honda and the Mazda get the smaller brakes and fail to beat the Camry in terms of braking.

2018 Toyota Camry Interior

7.8/10

“After its 2018 redesign, the interior of the Toyota Camry feels classier. Much of the improved ambiance stems from the use of better materials and less hard plastics. Technology also gets an overhaul, resulting in a better infotainment system and lots of advanced safety features.”- Cars.USnews

Seating and Comfort

The Camry has a lot of space to offer on the inside. The cabin is spacious and airy but it is not as quite as you’d expect it to be. On the front row you have 38.3 inches of head room, 57.7 inches of shoulder room and 42.1 inches of leg room. Jump to the back seats and you get 38 inches of head room, 55.7 inches of shoulder room and 38 inches of leg room.

Seats are plush and offer good back and thigh support. Over the long-range run, the seats prove to be comfortable with multiple adjustments availability. The interior of Camry might look old school but it is quite practical.

In comparison, the Accord offers the best legroom but its low headroom is the biggest disadvantage. Accord has the best interiors among the segment rivals. The plastic feels premium and the dual-tone finish looks good. The cabin remains very quiet even at high speed and the seats are extremely comfortable as well.

Infotainment System

The Camry has an average infotainment system. It comes with a 7-inch interface display. The infotainment also gets Entune 3.0 Audio with Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link App. You also get an integrated backup camera with projected path display. Additionally, you get a 4.2-in. TFT Multi-Information Display with odometer, outside temperature, fuel economy, and trip information.

Cargo Space

The Cargo volume on offer with the Toyota Camry is something that will certainly disappoint you. It only offers 14.1 cubic feet of cargo volume which is just ok for a car in this segment and isn’t all that really great.

We Recommend

The Camry is not the car that you generally flaunt. Functionality and practicality is what this car is supposed to offer. Analyzing all the features offered across all the variants, the base L variant of the Camry makes more sense. It comes with all the basic essential features and comes as a great value for your money. But if you want a more powerful Camry, opt for the XLE V6 trim which will cost you 11 Grand more than the base L.

2018 Toyota Camry Competition

Honda Accord LX vs Toyota Camry L

The Honda Accord is just $75 cheaper than the Camry. It is 11 horses deficient to the Camry but surprisingly has marginally better acceleration figures. The Camry has the better fuel economy figures than the Honda Accord. The Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry both offer equal amount of space on the inside while the Honda Accord beats the Camry in case of cargo volume.

It is pretty much a tie in this case. Both the Accord and the Camry are equally good and offer similar amount of tech and features. If you just need those better power and economy figures, then the Camry is the one for you. If you crave for the better acceleration figures on paper and need that extra bit of luggage space then the Honda Accord is the one for you.

Mazda 6 Touring vs Toyota Camry L

The Mazda is Camry’s another rival from Japan. The Mazda is almost a $1500 cheaper than the Camry but at the same time it is 26 horses deficient to the Camry. The Mazda does have slightly better acceleration figures but it loses big on fuel economy.

The Mazda also offers a marginally bigger luggage area. But citing other features of the Camry, the Mazda really feels a little dull. All in all, the Camry makes more sense than the Mazda 6 touring.

Ford Fusion S Sedan vs Toyota Camry L

The Ford Fusion is priced cheaper than the Camry at $22,215. The Ford Fusion only makes 175 horsepower and thus has poorer acceleration figures than the Camry. The Fusion also fails to score in terms of fuel economy. For a few bucks extra, the Camry is any day a better car.

 

2018 Toyota Camry Final Verdict

The Camry is car that speaks form and functionality. The Camry is a great car as a daily driver. It can take you and your family around the city and can also small weekend trips. It does all the basic things correctly is just built to satisfy the purpose. Plus, the 2018 Camry also gets some sporty driving and handling.

The Camry doesn’t really have a great snob value. It does look better and offers better performance than its rivals. The Camry over also offers better features than its rivals and scores better than its rivals on all fronts. All these specs and features of the Camry make it a very attractive proposition and the Camry will definitely justify every penny that you will put on it.
