Toyota Camry XV50
Toyota Camry is a passenger car made by Toyota, which is made in the body of a sedan. The car itself has a long history and has been produced since 1982. As of this year, 2015, the 7th generation of this business class sedan is produced. It is interesting that until 2004 there was not much demand for Toyota Camry in European countries.
However, construction of the plant in the Russian Federation began in 2005. In the winter of 2007 the debut car was produced. The latest restyled version of the Toyota Camry 7 sedan of the 2015 model year was presented at the end of summer 2014. The whole model range is Toyota.
In general, the stylistics of the renovated Camry remained unchanged – it still stands out for its rigor, but at the same time elegance. The company has decided to completely change the novelty and therefore it has almost nothing in common with its former kin except the roof. The restyled sedan is the same, but with a more refined look and interior. A completely new body was developed. In short, it is a stylish pragmatist. From updates it is possible to allocate the changed design of headlights and optics of the car. The posts at the back received a plug, which is made in the style of a small window.
The front mounted bumper is equipped with vertical divisions of LED lights and large sections of air intakes, which add to the appearance of the Toyota Camry 7 sedan 2015 a little aggression and sportiness. The air intakes themselves come in two variations – either a fine mesh or with ribs installed horizontally. This is undoubtedly a plus, as it allows you to adjust the design of the car to suit your needs.
The front optics of Toyota Camry 2015 also received some kind of restyling. The main headlamps have changed in their design and received a unique style. In addition to the description of a slightly aggressive look, because of the sections on the front bumper skilfully complements the neat grille grille, the appearance of which brings some dynamism and rigor. I am pleased with the chrome hood trim.
Earlier Toyota Camry’s interior was always famous for its spaciousness, but in Toyota Camry 7 sedan 2015 it wasn’t taken away, but rather added, which is undoubtedly pleasing. This can be explained by the fact that this time, all the actions of designers were based on the use of modern advanced new technologies and quality performance of materials.
Getting inside the sedan, a 3-spoke steering wheel and a very interesting design solution for the dashboard is immediately striking. Now, between the speedometer and tachometer sensor, which have Optitron illumination, will be located a color display of information character, the size of which is equal to 4.2 inches.
The driver will be able to operate it using special buttons located on the steering wheel. Thanks to it, the driver will be able to get all the necessary information about the car in time, starting with navigation and ending with the data of telephone systems. The central console is also not intact – there is a 6 or 7-inch multimedia screen and a pleasant climate control system. It will also be a good idea to charge your mobile phone wirelessly.
Speaking in general, the interior decoration is quite surprising, as it is made with the use of soft materials. The function of heating the windshield or windshield wiper brushes was a pleasure. Complementing all the harmony of aged blue illumination, as in addition adds a pleasant stay in the cabin Toyota, allows you to feel comfortable, stylish and at the same time protected. The luggage compartment has 506 litres of free space.
