2018 Toyota Camry: Success After Prius Failure

At the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, Toyota unveiled its all-new Camry, it’s eight generation to be exact, which impressed the audience with its new sporty vibe.

The new Prius had failed because Toyota ruined its design by making it too aggressive. This time it’s clear that the automaker has learned from its mistakes by designing the new-gen Camry just right.

Many folks have said that they are really loving this new design, especially the way the grille looks. And, it’s apparent that this new design may reel in some non-Toyota fans, as well.

The 2018 Toyota Camry underpins the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) architecture, just like the Prius and C-HR. Thanks to this platform, the models have much sportier handling as it has lighter construction and a lower center of gravity.

This all-new Camry will be coming with three powertrain options, a 2.5-liter inline-four paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, a 3.5-liter V6 and a hybrid setup mating the 2.5-liter inline-four to an E-CVT.

Well, do you love what Toyota has done to its revamped Camry?

  • In what universe has the Prius failed?? Its primary attraction is its excellent gasoline economy, not its styling. The styling is “too aggressive”? Your assessment fails on its face, totally separate from the Camry’s styling.

    • I bought a new Prius and the next day took my wife to drive it. She hated the split rear window and since I bought it for her I immediately traded it for a Camry. The rear window of the Prius is bad….ok….but, I loved the ride, handling and other inside looks.

  • I have not liked the Camry styling since 2013 which I own. I also have a 2016 Prius which I love for the great gas mileage and it does not look too bad, either. But the bottom line on Toyota products is the reliability. Since my first Toyota in 1991 I have driven over 1.5 million miles and had to get a tow once. And that was my fault for not doing recommended maintenance.
