Toyota Camry 2014 Review

Toyota Camry 2014 Review: The Toyota Camry was brand-new in 2012, yet just what showed up was just evolutionary from a styling standpoint. As opposed to aiming to make the brand-new automobile significantly different, Toyota essentially had a look at the existing automobile and asked exactly how it could redesign virtually every part to make a far better end result for core values like comfort and safety. What it ended up with, for much better or even worse, was a vehicle that looked quite like the outward bound variation, but with a much more upright front end, a couple of more folds, boxier edges, as well as a somewhat different roofline. Inside, there's even more to be stated, as the Camry not only gets better materials and also outlining throughout, but its brand-new dual-tier cockpit console and also corners that are pushed outward-- in a type of anti-cockpit design-- assistance magnify interior area.

Toyota recovered one of the top areas among mid-size sedans, with ten conventional air bags plus top total rankings from both U.S. safety and security agencies. Bluetooth connectivity is consisted of in all trims-- even the base model-- and also the screen-based Present Stereo, with Bluetooth audio streaming, USB connectivity, and also iPod connectivity, is now consisted of even in the base Camry L. A navigation system with voice acknowledgment is also readily available, as is a high-end JBL sound system, with HD Radio as well as satellite radio. And also through Toyota's sophisticated Entune system-- additionally readily available-- you can tap into Pandora streaming sound via your smart device, along with a suite of connected services. For 2014, the SE Sporting activity trim-- essentially a value package-- has been brought back for the four-cylinder version. It comes common with the 18-inch wheels, power motorist's seat and moonroof.

On the whole, the Camry flights and drives in an extra polished, responsive way compared to any Camry you test-drove a few years back, and the package and also attributes have actually been a lot improved. Press the Camry hard right into a corner and also there's still a fair amount of body lean, in addition to lots of roll; what has transformed is that it takes care of healings and changes a little bit much better. Thanks to some extremely considerable weight savings, the base four-cylinder Camry performs much better than ever, while the V-6 loads a specific niche for those desiring a particularly strong, polished (yet still budget-priced) sedan

The Camry's inside is among its strong points. Thanks to a thinner front-seat layout and also new product packaging, there's noticeably extra back-seat area in these most current versions. Trip convenience goes over, as well as trunk room is enhanced due to the boxier corners. Base pole positions are a little unsatisfactory, however, as well as we highly recommend the flashy SE version, in part, for its much better-bolstered seats.

Much like the previous-generation Camry, the Hybrid version really feels around as quick as the base 4-- perhaps a little more so when you use complete electric-motor boost. And the gas mileage enhancement is sensational: 43 mpg city, 39 highway for the LE. Hybrids currently are available in LE or XLE versions, and also as prior to they quit a little trunk room (not as much currently though, because of a smaller battery pack).

The most up to date Camry makes leading 'great' rankings from the Insurance policy Institute for Freeway Safety And Security (IIHS), as well as the Institute's Top Safety Pick distinction; but it ought to be kept in mind that in the most up to date examination from the IIHS, the small-overlap frontal examination, the Camry racked up 'bad' (while the Honda Accord, for example, gained a leading 'good'). The Camry is a first-class vehicle overall in government testing-- although it's gained four from five stars for frontal influence, its exceptional first-class side outcome made the distinction.


Toyota Camry 2014 Review


Styling

Toyota provided the Camry a full remodeling in 2012, however in this case, it altered on the conventional side of the spectrum. As a matter of fact, if you're not harmonic with the subtle outside modifications that was available in brand-new versions, you may not be able to tell the existing generation Camry from the previous one.

Subtlety isn't a bad thing right here, though, however among the Camry's fortes. The Camry preserved the exact same measurements as the previous design, save for a few tweaks to the roofline and greenhouse. While it may be a stretch to call this automobile a "knockout," just what's promptly recognizable is its priorities on usefulness and also convenience over flowing kind or characterful sheetmetal.

As compared to most of the more curvaceous alternatives in the mid-size car section, the Camry looks a little bit much more angular, a bit more upright. It uses sharper corners compared to the previous design, offering it a little even more contour allure and also a lot even more factors for style. And also, there's added worth for the trunk, which acquires a little area thanks to the missing curves.

Toyota called this current Camry's design theme "Rational Tech-Dynamism," which "aims for a sensible as well as sophisticated style with sporty outside and also a contemporary, luxurious interior."

Like the majority of brand-new versions, the Camry obtains a multi-layered dash look; Toyota says that the layered, stitched-leather appearance of the control panel was imitated saddles, media players like the iPod contributed in the design and responsive reasoning of the center gauge cluster along with the sound and environment controls.

For the most part, Toyota is true on that layout assurance inside. Fortunately, they replaced the previous interior that we considereded as a 'Corolla-plus' format with one that draws from those versions higher up the Toyota position-- looking affected partly by Lexus cars, accented with some of the dashboard information from Toyota's most recent SUVs, like the brand-new 4Runner. Yet oddly, we see the slightly larger 2013 Toyota Avalon as having actually taken off in an entirely various instructions-- one that we like better compared to the Camry's.

Within the Camry lineup, you'll locate a few crucial look distinctions, as well as they're substantial adequate to impact your visual gratitude. Stylish SE designs obtain a split, winged air dam that we saw at times as Subaru-influenced; however XLE as well as hybrid trims come with a much more wide-open (but louvered) air dam (with XLEs obtaining a little added chrome in the upper grille).

To sum, the Camry does not push any limits; actually, next to the Chevrolet Malibu it's now looking like one of the most conventional entry in its class, regardless of being just one of one of the most just recently updated. To some, it's a snooze, yet we assume it's refreshingly various for bucking a pattern and also taking function (and also back clearance and trunk space) over form.

Efficiency

The 2014 Toyota Camry drives in similar fashion as it looks-- a little conservative, a little scheduled, yet comfy in a manner that will certainly please the masses. That's not to say that the whole Camry lineup is a yawn to drive, though; there's at least one concealed treasure that looks and feels a little sportier.

Crossbreed versions were refocused in 2012 with the redesign, as well as they're currently both better-performing as well as extra thrifty-- as well as used in LE and XLE trims. They obtain an Atkinson-cycle version of the 4, making 156 hp and also 156 lb-ft, with output being 200 horse power altogether. Gas mileage is incredible-- 43 mpg city, 39 freeway for the LE, or 41/38 for the XLE (due to different tires and more weight) and now the Camry Hybrid really feels about as fast as the base 4-- possibly al bit when you use full electric-motor boost.

Some mid-size models like the Ford Combination, Hyundai Sonata, or Kia Optima have transferred to all four-cylinder lineups, yet the Camry stays with its reliable formula of using either four-cylinder or V-6 engines. The base 178-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is uncharacteristically smooth in the method it starts and idles; though you can listen to a hint of coarseness if you push it hard. It's clear this is no costs powertrain, however it offers a lot of power for many demands. Opt for the 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 and you obtain an entirely various, luxury-car character, with great deals of polished strike no matter what the speed.

In either case, the six-speed automatic transmission changes unobtrusively and also does not balk to downshift.In general, we such as the base design's lighter front end as well as more balanced feel. There is a way to add more enjoyable though: Get the sporty SE design, and its stiffer springtimes, rebound springs, strong stabilizer bars, and special steering knuckles and reduced arms. Completely, the package makes the Camry a lot more receptive without riding all that harsher on the majority of surfaces. And you obtain downshift rev-matching and also steering-wheel paddle-shifters that assist heighten the experience when it counts.

Press the Camry hard into an edge as well as there's still a fair amount of body lean, along with great deals of roll; just what has actually altered is that it manages recuperations and transitions a little bit much better; incorporated with a reconfigured electric power guiding system the internet result is that it's a little bit a lot more active-- particularly in four-cylinder type.

Comfort & High quality

The Camry continues to be among the smoothest, most comfortable flights in the sector, as well as the current designs feels a little more high end and extravagant compared to past variations.

From the front seats, the Camry feels extra roomy than a number of its competitors and their cockpit-influenced insides. The dash is pushed forward and also the corners exterior, making the cabin really feel even more open and less confined. Understanding as well as fact sync in this case, where the inside's valuable room has raised thanks to thinned columns as well as improved door panels-- subtle modifications, yet generous ones.

Taller grownups will value the back legroom in the 2014 Camry, also. The facility console and front seatbacks were redesigned to produced extra room for longer legs, and also while 3 adults might really feel a little confined back there, that stems primarily from the absence of shoulder area.

The flashy SE design trips a bit harsher, however it deserves it for the better seats you obtain; they're much more boldy contoured-- assisting both to lower fatigue and also hold you in position in edges-- and visibly much better than the mushy, flat ones you get in one of the most affordable Camry models.

Back seatbacks don't rather fold completely level in the Camry, as well as the trunk opening may make filling lengthy things from IKEA or Home Depot a little challenging. That's most likely not the intended purpose of the trunk, though, as well as there's a lot of area for big traveling bags or a big family's grocery store run. Likewise of note is that Camry Crossbreed versions no more sacrifice back seats comfort or trunk space; the battery pack has lessened as well as lighter compared with the previous design-- although you'll still give up some trunk space as compared to the other models.

The 2014 Toyota Camry is surprisingly quiet and also well separated from roadway as well as engine sound, many thanks partially to added audio insulation and also even more layers of metal at the firewall program. Trims, materials, and great details are not on the chintzy side, as they have actually been for Camry's past; they're a little typical looking, yet upscale. And also it feels that extra attention has been paid to just what's around-- for instance, in the chunky multi-function controllers on either side of the steering wheel, positioned right where your thumbs can be.
