The New Toyota Camry 2017 Makes Its Grand Entrance
Those six ridges. That’s the first interesting thing we see about the all-new Toyota Camry. Those transverse ribs you see on the hood give a bit of Gothic sense to the new Camry, much like the intimidating rib-vaults found in Europe’s medieval cathedrals. Architects say that the Gothic style gives a sense of height, grandeur, and elegance to any design–something which the exterior of the new 2017 Toyota Camry has in spades.
Of course, the new Camry’s way too cool and modern to look even slightly medieval. And engineers would say that those ridges are just there to add better aerodynamics and speed.
We couldn’t agree more.
This eighth generation, midsized vehicle is a product of Toyota’s ‘Keen Look’ design philosophy. So apart from those attention-grabbing ridges, futuristic headlamps, and aggressive fenders, Toyota has also updated its two-piece grille and lowered the Camry’s hood for a sleeker, svelte appearance. Its shoulder, roofline, and seating positions are also much lower than before, giving it a wind-cutting shape for better aerodynamics and an edgier, sportive vibe.
The new 2017 Camry also revamped its interiors, with the cabin completely modified to add more personal space. Toyota made sure that the materials used are more upscale, with improved comfort and ergonomics for a more pleasant driving experience. Some new and noteworthy features include the ‘Remote Connect’ that helps drivers start their cars from a distance, monitor their fuel levels, and give maintenance alerts. The Camry now has a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, and lane departure alert for added safety features.
Is the Toyota Camry a Good Vehicle?
ized Sedan” if it weren’t any good. And neither would it be ranked as one of the top choices of many executives here in the Philippines if it’s not doing something right.
However, we think that the new 2017 Toyota Camry fares much better when you buy it in its upper trims. So if you’re thinking of going for the base model, we’d suggest that you go higher if you have some extra cash to spare. We’re not saying that the base model isn’t any good, it’s just that it’s priced higher than some of its competitors that have far more features in their base trims compared to Camry. And we’re talking here about Hyudai Sonata and its toughest competitor, the Honda Accord.
The higher variants, however, are far more competitive. Features like HD radio, Entune Audio Plus (10 speakers), and satellite radio make the added splurge truly worth it. And if you want more power and speed, go for the 268-horsepower V6 engine that goes at 13.5/9.5 L per 100 kilometers (city/highway driving) instead of the standard 178 hp four-cylinder. You’d be glad you did.
