New Toyota Camry: Revolutionary

The new Toyota Camry reviews racing in are nothing short of remarkable. Some reviews are even saying the reinvented Camry is a revolutionary vehicle that will most likely help the long-time popular car reclaim its spot atop the family sedan niche.

The Camry, which ranges in price from $22,715 to a tad above $30,000, has not evolved much in its exterior looks. Its lines remain simple and familiar. Inside, though, the changes shine. Depending upon the trim package a buyer selects, drivers and passengers sit out the journey in a world comprised of leather upholstery  and wood-and-matte-black trim. The folks inside can also access apps that come preloaded in the Camry’s Entune infotainment system.    

The ride of the new Camry is an improvement upon previous models as well. The suspension has been re-engineered and tuned to give a fine ride while not giving up any road-gripping ability. Finally, hybrid lovers have something that they can go gaga over, the new Camry hybrid that does not have the Hybrid Synergy Drive system that was made for the Prius.
