The Toyota Camry has been the best selling car for years on end. So what did the company decide to do for the new year? Toyota gave it a face-lift, and unsurprisingly it looks fantastic.
2015 sees the introduction of two new trim levels: the XSE and the Hybrid SE, which add to the current LE, SE, and XLE models. Toyota’s SE trim accounts for 45 percent of total sales, so the firm has decided to offer a hardened, sportier version in the form of the XSE. The new model features 18-inch wheels and a firmed-up suspension to add a little pep in this segment.
Interior and exterior styling comprises the biggest changes for this model year. The front fascia is aggressively fashioned and wears LED running lights in addition to the newly revised headlights. Inside, Toyota adds a 4.2-inch video screen in all but the base model, and has gone to great lengths to refine the look and feel of the materials. Toyota claims the new Camry is the quietest version to date, featuring tighter door seals and a 30 percent increase in soundproofing. That’s something we could get behind.
The current 2.5L four-cylinder and 3.5L V6 engines are available, alongside a 2.5L Hybrid Synergy CVT option for 2015. Stay tuned for more coverage on this and other cars from the New York International Auto Show.
