2018 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Toyota Camry

Serving Florence, Fort Mitchell, Burlington, Independence, Union KY

Earning top marks from reviewers and maintaining its high status with consumers, the 2017 Toyota Camry leaves little room for complaint. Yet Toyota has chosen to step up its game with the 2018 Toyota Camry. This puts shoppers in a unique position with two excellent choices for a new sedan.

Performance

While the 2017 Camry has stiffer builds to improve driving dynamics, the 2018 Camry has taken this idea further. Engineers have used four-point engine mounts to boost handling response. The new double-wishbone suspension better absorbs bumps and dips. Under the hood, the 2017 offers a 178-horsepower, fuel efficient engine. Consumers will notice that both power and fuel economy have improved on the new 2018 model. The standard six-speed automatic can now be upgraded to a more precise eight-speed transmission. New for the 2018 model is a 3.5-liter V6 that promises even more power than the current Camry V6. Auto journalists are also already talking about the upgrades to the Camry hybrid, which is hinted at yielding Prius-like fuel economy.

Appearance

The new Camry has exchanged the previous round headlights for more angular ones to give it a more aggressive appearance. Other updates include a new light signature created with LED accents. New lines add character to the already sleek and aerodynamic look. On the 2018 Toyota Camry LE, there’s a new horizontal-slat lower valence opening. The new 2018 Camry XSE wears a blacked-out mesh lower valance. Beneath the taillights, engineers have tucked a new quad-tip dual exhaust and a special vent. Compared side by side, you’ll notice that the 2018 Camry is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor.

The 2017’s asymmetrical dashboard has been replaced by a more traditional one, and the set-up has been lowered slightly to maintain and improve visibility in the 2018 redesign. The Entune system has received a 2018 update, fine tuning the menus for faster interactions. Allowing Camry drivers to stream online maps to their touchscreens, Toyota’s exclusive connected navigation app is on both the 2017 and 2018 editions. Human-machine interface expands with the addition of a new seven-inch gauge display. Entertainment capability expands with WiFi availability and a special JBL sound system. Adding value, outgoing Camrys are noted for their quiet cabins, and the incoming models are refining that even further with special noise and harshness reduction techniques.

Safety

Ten airbags and exclusive whiplash-lessening seats made the 2017 Camry one of the safest available sedans. A five-star federal crash rating and Top Safety Pick designation earned by 2017 editions is certain to be earned by the 2018. This is due, in part, to the expansion of safety standards on the new lineup. Furthermore, these models come with adaptive cruise control, a lane departure alert, and intelligent high beams. New for 2018, options include a new 10-inch color head-up display and a blind spot monitor.
