(TORONTO, ON – August 25, 2015) The Toyota Camry is the number one selling intermediate car in North America for a good reason: In fact, for many of them. The Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid set the standard in the mid-size sedan segment with a bold exterior, premium interior, dynamic handling, and a broad selection of grades – plus the option of V6 or hybrid power trains.
“By any measure, the Toyota Camry stands out from the crowd in the mid-size sedan market,” said Larry Hutchison, Vice President at Toyota Canada Inc. “For 2016, we’re pleased to offer Canadian drivers another reason to love Camry, with the SE Special Edition – available in limited quantities – as well as enhancements to the standard equipment on several models to deliver even more value.”
Every 2016 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid features bold exterior styling, an upscale interior with premium, soft touch materials throughout, and advanced instrumentation with intuitive controls. Underneath the striking new styling, the chassis and body structure are designed to deliver a superior, comfortable ride, while suspension and steering systems take the Camry’s handling to a new level of responsiveness. Special attention to reducing unwanted wind and road noise has resulted in the quietest-ever Camry cabin.
All models are engineered for engaging performance and impressive efficiency. The Camry is available with either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engine, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Camry Hybrid is built around a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine with Hybrid Synergy drive matched to an efficient CVT.
Safety is always standard, so every 2016 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid is equipped with active and passive safety features – including 10 airbags, a back-up camera, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters, anchor points for child seats, and child protector rear door locks. As with every new Toyota since 2011, the Camry / Camry Hybrid lineup is also standard equipped with the six active safety technologies of the Star Safety System: Antilock Brake System, Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control and Smart Stop Technology work together to help drivers avoid potential accident situations.
