Well, it's a surprise. It is contrary to what I expected when Toyota Camry first came to my house in 2021, I have a lot to say about the eternal bestseller, in addition to the small updates for the new model year. However, if you are already the owner of Camry, or you are actively seeking to enter the medium-sized car option that has always been safe, you will not learn much here, except for the black and white of the new product; it is mechanically the same as the 2018-2020 model, so it will turn and stop, just as thousands of eighth generation people have strolled on the roads of the United States Like. Whether you're Camry curious or always dismissive of Toyota's bread and butter, sticking to that may surprise you.
New features of 2021 Toyota Camry hybrid
For 2021 and beyond, these changes are indeed superficial. Since later this year, the basic Camry L has begun to go downhill. The cheapskates and bargainers are now forced to enter Camry Ryle with the price unchanged. However, the price difference between L and Le before was only $545, so the bargainers there did not suffer much loss. The front fascia is subtly reshaped, working with new wheel options and new paint colors, dressed in desirable names like blueprints and ice edges. The upper XLE trim receives a reworked leather interior with a new standard 7.0-inch and optional 9.0-inch infotainment displays, and all new Camry TRDs are now equipped with standard blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic warning, as well as heated exterior mirrors.
The most important change in 2021 is the update of the standard suite of active safety systems, which is billed as Toyota security 2.5 plus. Now, forward collision warning can pick up cyclists and pedestrians in low light during the day, while the so-called intersection support maintains a hidden line of sight when you enter an intersection, and when you enter an intersection, it does its best to activate the brakes when it detects an oncoming car to help avoid a collision.
Apart from that, nothing else has changed. Oh, in addition to the hybrid now available in the sport's XSE trim; this is how my tester is configured. So, if you like what Toyota Camry has provided before, and 336978 of you seem to have made these small upgrades in 2019, it's just icing. The dealer should get the first batch of 2021 in the next few weeks, so be sure what color doesn't conflict with your partner's RAV4.
Then I can go on with two Toyota stories. Before the advent of the Camry hybrid XSE, I drove about 4,500 miles on the Lexus LS 500, the four seasons 2020, for two months. It was a large luxury sled weighing 2.5 tons. It was the most impressive mainstream car of Toyota Motor Corp., second only to Toyota century of Japan. As we listed in LS's four seasons introduction, and experienced over a 15,000-mile journey, driving the LS 500 loaded on the spindle grille is like cruising in the international business class, removing the fake monks and mid-range sake from the microwave oven.
It is obviously that replacing the weight of Lexus with a plastic fantasy Camry remote should feel like being airlifted back to the steering wheel, at least according to the standards set by the (purely hypothetical) historical LS v. Camry confrontation. Spoiler warning No, 2021 Camry is not comparable to LS in appearance, comfort, materials, design, refinement, quiet, riding, dignity, attention to detail or decoration.
