2016 Toyota Camry Overview
The Toyota Camry is America’s best-selling four-door sedan, and now that the 2016 model is here, there’s no reason to believe that’s about to change. Bolder design, improved interior quality, more equipment, and even chassis enhancements are all included and bound to make you consider buying one of these—that is, if you inexplicably weren’t already thinking about it.
2016 Toyota Camry Exterior
The 2016 Toyota Camry’s visual refresh is substantial. Toyota promised to make the popular sedan more exciting, and so far as looks are concerned, it has succeeded. The curves flow more organically than ever, and the five-bar chrome grille stands out in the best of ways (and significantly more should you opt for the sportier SE and XSE trims). The 2016 Camry is attractive without being outlandish, which we think makes it a car that will look good many, many years after its replacement has come along.
2016 Toyota Camry Performance
The 2016 Toyota Camry is by default powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. For extra grunt, customers can choose the 3.5-liter V6, which boosts output up to 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. Combined with recalibrated springs, shocks, and sway bars and the most balanced chassis on a Camry yet, you’ll find that it’s quite easy to have fun in what is otherwise a very composed and behaved family ride.
2016 Toyota Camry Efficiency
Toyota has always known how to deliver on this front. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder gets 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway*, while the 3.5-liter V6 gets 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway*. That’s thanks to a number of reasons, ranging from the efficient six-speed automatic transmission to the fuel-sipping nature of the engines. And let’s not forget the new aerodynamic bodywork!
2016 Toyota Camry Interior
The 2016 Toyota Camry’s interior is fresher and more modern than its predecessors. Every trim, even the base LE, includes a 6.1-inch touchscreen, and the material quality feels decidedly upscale. There are all sorts of little comforts and touches to appreciate, like the wood-grain-style accents and sound-cancelling endeavors that contribute to a nicely quiet and comfortable cabin. Add to this the Entune premium audio system with integrated navigation and nifty tech like voice recognition and wireless charging, and the 2016 Camry feels less like the affordable family car that it is and more like a futuristic premium sedan.
2016 Toyota Camry Safety
The 2016 Toyota Camry is equipped with ten standard airbags, including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, seat-mounted side airbags, knee airbags, and side curtain airbags. In addition to the usual anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, and stability control technology, it also comes with many smart safety features to help you feel more confident on the road, such as Blind Spot Monitor, a rearview camera, Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and the available Pre-Collision System. No matter where you are and what road you’re on, Toyota makes every effort to make you feel as safe as possible in the 2016 Camry.
In conclusion, the 2016 Toyota Camry asks a big question: Who will step up? After dominating the four-door family sedan market for years, it doesn’t look like the Camry is about to relinquish its crown any time soon.
