Starting at more than $23,000, the 2018 Toyota Camry is a mid-size sedan that’s been redesigned to deliver powerful and smart performance for daily drives. Priced at just over $18,000 for the base edition, the 2018 Toyota Corolla is a compact car that takes pride in being economical and intelligent. Both of these affordable family vehicles carry more than five accident-mitigation features that are powered by the Toyota Safety Sense P technology. You’ll also embrace the signature Entune multimedia platform that’s available in these high-tech models.
Labeled with the Dynamic Force badge, the Toyota Camry’s 2.5 L engine produces up to 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The 3.5 L V6 engine is capable of generating 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Both engines run on the Dual Variable Valve Timing (Dual VVT-i) with intelligence technology. Having the Direct Shift label, the Camry’s automatic transmission system offers a total of eight gear ratios.
Under the hood of the Toyota Corolla is a 1.8 L engine that offers a top output of 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque. This compact engine block is available with the Dual VVT-i or Valvematic technology. A six-speed manual transmission system is installed in select Corolla trims. If you want a truly smooth ride, select a model that’s equipped with the Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence (CVT-i) system. Capable of creating an infinite number of gear combinations, this patented CVT can be set to run on the Sport Mode. As in previous years, the Camry and Corolla retain a front-wheel drive (FWD) configuration and electric power steering.
The color palette for the Toyota Camry includes Ruby Flare, Blue Crush, Galactic Aqua and Midnight Black. Similarly, the Corolla could be customized in Barcelona Red, Slate Metallic, Black Sand and other attractive finishes. Shiny chrome is available for the exhaust tips of both vehicles. Alloy wheels with machined finishes add extra style and function to the exterior.
As a premium sedan, the Camry has a High Solar Energy-Absorbing (HSEA) glass that ensures optimum comfort for the passengers on sunny days. This unique material is engineered to prevent too much UV radiation from penetrating into the interior. A noise-reducing front windshield is another installation that makes the Camry a truly comfortable car.
For their relatively fair price tags, the Camry and Corolla surprisingly come loaded with the latest accident-mitigation technology. The Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) suite adds several features that scan the surroundings, and take prompt action to avoid crashes. For example, the Pre-Collision System applies the brakes in critical situations. Active at speeds of more than 30 MPH, the Lane Departure Alert decreases the risk of lateral collisions. If necessary, the Steering Assist will partially override the controls of the steering system. Additionally, the TSS-P package comes with the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control that’s intelligent enough to stop and restart in sync with traffic flow. Both Toyota cars also have the Automatic High Beams that react to incoming pedestrians and vehicles.
