New 2016 Toyota Camry – Release Date and Review

2016 Toyota Camry Release Date, MSRP, Colors, Price – The Toyota Camry has certainly been the best seller especially in the U.S market for the last one and a half decade or so and this might have been as a result of a non-offensive exterior design usually associated with a Camry, well designed interior, acceptable performance on the road and bullet proof protection.

The designers have constantly ensured market-suited refreshments are updated now and then especially at the forefront of the vehicle in order to maintain the sales figures. For 2016 year model, Toyota has rejuvenated and re-engineered almost 2000 parts and according to them, ‘only the roof’ will miss in the design shake-up. This shot in the arm will include an updated suspension, redesigned exterior styling and new interior adorning materials meant to ensure the mojo in sales figures continues.

Toyota has already made it clear that the vehicle will only debut in a small scale production in the upcoming Chicago Auto Show scheduled next week, but we expect more news during the show. The automaker has lined up some significant improvements for the new model which will not only include revamping the technology but also giving the vehicle an aggressive stance.

Exterior Review – 2016 Toyota Camry

Whilst set to receiving a major boost, the Toyota Camry 2016 will be based on updates of its predecessor and will therefore come with plenty of carryovers. Novelties will include body panels which will be designed in such a way that they will look dissimilar to the Special Edition model.

The first vibrant aspect of the vehicle is the conspicuous paint that is quite amazing and for the 2016 model year, customers should brace themselves for two colours choices: The Blizzard Pearl and the Blue Streak Metallic. The Blue stands out if you would ask me, since any special edition car will definitely require a hue that is unique from the usual black-white spectrum.

Moreover, it has 18” wheels which complements the exterior design quite well and will improve its driveability and stability over the previous model which was an inch less.

Expect the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE Sedan, XSE and XLE models’ details to be made after the upcoming Chicago Motor Show slated for the coming weeks. The Camry should look forward in facing off with some competitors which include the Ford Fusion praised for its sharper styling and driving dynamics, Honda Accord – it doesn’t offer better exterior design but is sure a great all-round family sedan that offers excellent reliability. Mazda 6, on the hand, provides a sharp, excellent fuel economy and class-leading handling worth considering.
