The Toyota Camry has been the top selling vehicle in America for more than two decades, and it achieved the distinction by fulfilling the customer’s needs and their expectations. When it comes to fuel economy, spaciousness, reliability, reputation and resale value the Camry has ranked either very near or at the top of the mainstream buyers calculations.
But some may still argue that the Toyota’s line of sedans with evergreen status must attain more must-have looks or the qualities of a sports sedan. Just to feed fodder to the thought, the 2015 Camry has been given an all-round facelift as the latest model. The earlier dull and blocky appearance has been done away with a sportier appearance which has been augmented by the lower and longer and aggressive appearing snout and a hood adorned with a light crease. The flanks have been more chiseled and carved, and it has acquired wider stance.
More cheer is packed in the inside, and you have touch surface on the softer side all around, bright silver trim and accented stitching. The refresh also involves the Toyota Camry hybrid which is now available in the three trims namely LE, LXE, and the latest SE which has been the tested vehicle. More green has been added to the red mist in the trim, and it sports a mesh grille, a spoiler, and dark chrome trim and aluminum wheels of 17-inch size.
More spot welds have seen to it that the structure attains more additional stiffness in key areas, which include door openings and the cowl. The electric power steering has also been tweaked by Toyota with the aim of making it feel like a conventional hydraulic assisted setup, and dual-stage brake boost has been also added to bring out linear pedal response.
This Camry SE Hybrid has the EPA figures of 40/38 mpg for city and highway, and it was observed to offer an overall 31mpg.
