Completely reimagined for its eighth generation, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the 2018 Toyota Camry. Even though the new redesign is impressive, it isn't a fluke that the Camry has been the best selling car in America for the past 15 years. If you're looking for an efficient and versatile sedan, we wanted to talk about a few of the differences between the 2018 Toyota Camry vs the 2017 Toyota Camry to see if it is worth the upgrade.
Even with exceptional performance and reliability, one of the best aspects of the new Camry is how customizable the sedan is. In fact, the new Camry is available seven traditional trims, as well as three hybrid options. These include the standard L, LE, SE, XLE, XSE, XLE V6 and XSE V6, along with the Hybrid LE, Hybrid SE and Hybrid XLE. Even with going through a redesign, the 2018 Camry also stays affordable, with a starting MSRP of just $23,495.
Although the team designing the new Camry focused on making a stylish sedan with an athletic look and wider stance, a lot of emphasis went into upgrading the performance of the new model.
