2018 Toyota Camry

Welcome to ToyotaTown, your certified Toyota dealership in London, Ontario. We are  proudly presenting the new 2018 Toyota Camry. Find out everything you need to know below. Enjoy!

The best-selling car in its segment for the past two years in Canada, the Toyota Camry is raising the ante at this year's Detroit autoshow. The eighth-generation sedan has gone through a total evolution, from a proven, dependable and safety-focused car to one that also possesses a more exciting and emotional character, thanks to its newfound sporty performance and style.

The new Camry utilizes TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) which represents a completely new strategy to the way the company designs, engineers, and packages its vehicles. TNGA retains all of Toyota's traditional values of superlative build quality and safety while injecting a fun driving experience that plays on all the senses. The physical manifestation is the usage of a new engine, transmission and GA-K platform.

"The 2018 Toyota Camry is all-new, with jaw-dropping design, advanced safety systems, and impressive technology - plus stirring performance that makes this mid-size sedan incredibly fun to drive," said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. "It's the best mid-size sedan we've yet produced - one that will deliver everything Canadians have come to expect from Camry, and a whole lot more."

"In order to create something that stirs people's soul, we've laid out the concept of a new sedan that provides fun and excitement behind the wheel," said Masato Katsumata, the Chief Engineer of the new Camry. "In developing the next-generation Toyota Camry, we were able to start with a clean slate, which allowed us to create a true driver's car."

Design Backstory
The Camry development team aimed for a styling design concept that achieves strong harmony between refinement and a sensual athletic image, creating a new approach to the market. The result is a new signature design language that takes the car into a beautiful and futuristic new direction.

There were three primary design goals when penning the all-new Camry: a distinctive, low centre of gravity that results in a firm wide stance, a practical-yet-emotionally styled cabin profile, and a sporty yet upscale image both inside and out. These design goals have resulted in a new type of sedan that's both exciting to look at and, more importantly drive, reestablishing itself as the new standard in the midsize-sedan category.

An Exterior with Unexpected Attitude
The new Camry's face is accentuated by a two-piece grille comprised of flowing thin and thick treatments - key elements of the Camry's "Keen Look" design philosophy. The curvaceous 1.6-inch-lower hood sits neatly above the grille's uppermost section which accommodates a commanding Toyota emblem. For the hybrid model, the emblem is tinged a distinct blue hue. This fashionable trifecta of grille, hood, and emblem blends flawlessly into the A-pillar, and produces a stance that is undoubtedly more aggressive than that of any predecessor.

The 2018 Camry has a sleeker profile than the current model. By lowering the hip points of the occupants (nearly 1.0-inch in the front and 1.2-inches at the rear), and therefore their seating positions, the design team was able to reduce the car's overall vehicle height by approximately one inch from the current model and incorporate a lower roofline, without sacrificing interior space. This invited the designers to pursue a wind-cutting shape and improve aerodynamics. Striking character lines around and along the body augment the aggressive front and rear fenders, giving the reimagined Camry a sportiness that's never before been perceived on this model.

The lower hip point, shoulder line, roof line and hood height gives the new Camry the appearance that it has a low center of gravity, which it does.  The design team knew the TNGA platform provided them with a great opportunity to pen a very expressive sedan, and they took advantage of this by getting the lines close to the ground and forming an energetic silhouette. They incorporated a strong stance that can be seen as you walk around the car.

Like the front of the vehicle, the rear features an athletic motif that melds flowing lines and complex shapes to form a sculpted landscape. Looking closely at the C-pillar's detail reveals a multitude of surfaces that reflect light from all angles. A distinct crease extends from the slim multicolour taillights down to the bumper, effectively "pushing" the wheels outward in appearance to create a wide posture akin to that of a premium sports sedan. The exclamation point here is provided by a newly designed Camry logo that gives the car an upscale identity.

Camry will be available in five grades: L, LE, XLE, SE and XSE. The new Camry's "Sport" SE and XSE grades wear a noticeably different body style than the entry level L, LE and premium XLE grades, highlighted by a sculpted rocker panel, new 19-inch black machined-finish alloy wheels (XSE only) a subtle rear spoiler lip, aggressive front bumper, and rear bumper with an integrated lower diffuser. The face is much more distinctive with large side intakes flanking the lower bumper's unique "Catamaran" accents, a high and slim upper intake encompassing the central Toyota badge, and a powerfully expressive mesh grille. A revised rear bumper with distinctive corner lines and smoke-tinted rear combination lamps highlight the changes at the rear.
