The Toyota Camry has long been associated with two key words: value and dependability. As America's best-selling sedan, the Camry is highly regarded for its track record of safety, durability and budget-friendly running costs. But until the 2018 model year, almost no one would every have accused the Camry of being exciting to drive or – dare we say it – even a little bit sexy. The brand-new 2018 Camry has shed its stodgy image for something altogether more sporty and youthful. The exterior is bolder, with plenty of the swoopy lines and curves found on Toyota vehicles such as the similarly new C-HR compact crossover and the Lexus LC coupe. Lower and wider than the outgoing model, the newfound emphasis on style and agility in the 2018 Camry could give rivals such as the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Mazda 6 and Hyundai Sonata an even more elusive target in the midsize-sedan segment.
