TOO BUSY OR JUST RIGHT, AT LEAST THE EIGHTH-GEN TOYOTA CAMRY HAS SOME PERSONALITY
Hi, Bob Aldons from Car Business on the Job with more Australian Car Industry news. With the impending closure of the Toyota factory this year, what happens to the Toyota Camry? Camry has been manufactured in Australia for years and undoubtedly will be replaced with a foreign build as a full import. We’re not to have known, but the ‘current’ Toyota Camry has been pretty old for some time and we’re expecting the new car to be similar to the vehicle shown at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show. Thanks to our US based colleagues at Autoweek, follows their opinion on the 2018 Toyota Camry which we’ll get in Australia as soon as the current production and stock has been sold.
“The 2018 Toyota Camry rolled onto the stage at the Detroit auto show on Monday with a new, sportier (you might also say busier) look. The eighth generation Camry rides on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform that the company says is “more dynamic, athletic and fun to drive.” We shall see.
Three new powertrains are offered in the Camry. Upgraded models get a 3.5-liter V6 with direct injection; less expensive trims use a new 2.5-liter four with an eight-speed automatic. The hybrid will get a “next-generation Toyota Hybrid System (THS II). Output wasn’t mentioned for any of the powertrains.
The hip points, shoulder line and roof line are lower, as is the hood. The luxury, sport and hybrid trims will all get slightly different looks, but all three come off a little overstyled for our tastes. Camry will come in the same four grades — LE, XLE, SE, XSE — as last year, with the SE and XSE getting bigger wheels, a larger spoiler lip and more aggressive bumpers.
The new Toyota Camry comes with Toyota’s latest Human Machine Interface (HMI) with a 10-inch head-up display, 7-inch information display in the instrument cluster and 8-inch audio/navigation display. Heating controls are now integrated into the center console using a flush design.
The chassis is more rigid, according to Toyota, and a new double-wishbone rear suspension setup should increase driving enjoyment. Vibration is also reduced due to a new four-point engine mounting system.
Toyota Safety Sense is standard with pre-collision warnings, pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, lane departure warning, steering assist and more.
What’s Car Business all about?
Car Business is a multi-dimensional automotive company that aims to help you to buy your new car for a better price than you can do on your own. Based on the Redcliffe Peninsula about 15 minutes from Brisbane Airport and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Car Business is located in an area that allows us to pick and choose from Brisbane’s finest new cars for sale.
The ‘go to’ Brisbane car buying agents, Car Business, is so much better than a car broker – first and foremost, Car Business is an experienced Car Buyer’s Advocacy service. Our experienced staff will stand alongside you and act on your behalf to help you buy your new car at a better price than you can directly through new car dealers.
My goal with Car Business is to provide timely and informative articles on everything to do with cars – used car purchase, new car sales, car service, car finance, car insurance, aftermarket car protection products – everything .
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides current automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to knowledgeable car industry friends. To those of you without someone to talk to, I’m your expert – the car guy.
I’ve been in the car industry since 1978 – covering all aspects that consumers need advice on. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – The Car Professor, The Car Doctor, and recently the Car Guy, but the bottom line is that I know a lot about this industry. Whenever someone needs some advice – they call me.
In general terms my car advice is free – it’s just something I like to do and my goal is to give back to the community that has treated me so well.
Good quality, Guaranteed Used Cars
I have access to good quality cars – you can see my current stock by clicking through to http://www.carsales.cars my own website for the cars that I have in stock. I’m also able to search out that particular car that you’re finding difficult to find. I’ve got a great dealer community that I’ve dealt with for many years and these cars don’t even hit the websites. I specialize in South East Queensland but in some cases, can look after interstate customers
Other areas that I specialize in are fairly widespread.
Genuine Spare Parts, Merchandise and Other Cool Stuff
www.genuinespares.com.au is an online spare parts business specializing in Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Isuzu Ute and Volkswagen. SO if you’re looking for anything from crash parts, electrical components, wheels, t-shirts or anything else, let me assist you with that search. You can rely on genuine spares to procure parts at better than trade price and certainly better than you can buy in Australia. My prices are reduced by about 30% on what you’d expect to pay here in Australia
Car Business Protects Your Car
Don’t get ripped off by car dealers wanting to make a huge profit – our window tinting prices start from $175 up to $450 for cars that dealers want to charge $750 for.
Car Finance and Car Insurance
My finance and insurance franchise, 1800Approved Finance, will help you get finance for your car at rates much lower than a dealer will offer. For a homeowner, we’re talking from 4.99%. Your bank won’t even offer you that.
