The 2017 Toyota Camry represents one of the finest automobile Toyota has ever created. The Camry, per se, is America’s best-selling midsize sedan, and has been doing so for slightly over 12 years. And even with such an alluring profile, Toyota still saw the opportunity to make it even better for 2017. The review below is well-detailed, and offers insightful info pertaining to the 2017 Camry’s redesigns, engine specs, pricing estimates, and release date. Be my guest!
Besides the quality, durability, and the value Camry’s are well-known for, the new model also offers a spacious and comfortable interior, impressive exterior visibility, easy-to-use controls, smooth drivability, and a powerful V6 engine. New features for 2017 include an upgraded audio system for both the Camry XLE and the XSE, and face-lifted exterior design cues. The Toyota Camry Special Edition offered last year has however been discontinued.
Correlation between the quality and popularity of a particular consumer item in America doesn’t always go hand in hand. Whether you’re talking of watches or hamburgers, cheap always triumphs. One product that continues to defy such a theory is the 2017 Toyota Camry – the best-selling midsize sedan.
See, Toyota, unlike some its rivals, carefully balances comfort and performance, with luxury and fun-to-drive personality – and safety too. The result is a great to drive car laden with sophisticated stuff, and has enough space to haul some family and friends across the country. Throw in the great build quality, and impressive fuel economy ratings and you’ve got yourself an admirable family hauler.
Both the interior and the exterior have been reworked on, as is evidenced by the pictures. The interior is upscale, refined, and features premium, and soft-touch materials. The exterior is striking, to say the least. The prominent character lines lend it an athletic and a more expressive profile.
Irrespective of whether you opt for the 2017 Toyota Camry XSE or SE, it still isn’t the sportiest sedan in its class. Alternatives to consider include the 2016 Mazda 6, 2017 Honda Accord, and the 2016 Ford Fusion. If you’re running on a budget and still insist on shopping in this segment, we’d highly suggest you go for either the 2017 Hyundai Sonata or the 2017 Kia Optima. Even despite the class featuring a smorgasbord of well-rounded alternatives, we still insist you take the 2017 Toyota Camry for a test drive.
