2021 Toyota Camry | Downtown Toyota | Toronto, ON

After 37 years, the Camry just keeps getting better. Toyota recently unveiled the 2021 Camry, which offers more driver-assistance technologies, a new design, and more trim level options than before.

On the outside, the 2021 Camry presents new front-end styling. With a more defined lower intake area, along with a new honeycomb-patterned grille on the SE and XSE trim levels, the Camry has an athletic, modern look for the new model year. It has new exterior colours to choose from, too. The 2021 Toyota Camry Hybrid will also have a new trim level: the XSE Hybrid.

The 2021 Camry is the first Toyota to come equipped with the new Toyota Safety Sense® 2.5+ package. This suite of features enhances your safety with the addition of intersection support for the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, among other features. The 2021 Camry also comes standard with Rear Seat Reminder and Automatic High Beams.

On the inside, the 2021 Camry’s revised design incorporates herringbone-patterned seats on the XLE trim and new floating 7-inch and 9-inch touch-screen displays across trim levels.

Toyota Vehicles Earn 2 IIHS Top Safety Pick Awards

IIHS Top Safety Pick | Toronto, ON

The 2020 Toyota lineup is starting off on the right foot. This year so far, a pair of Toyota vehicles have earned recognition from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for their safety, earning IIHS Top Safety Pick awards.

Earning the IIHS’s highest award — Top Safety Pick+ — was the 2020 Toyota Camry. The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, when equipped with Optional LED Headlights, has earned the honour of being named a Top Safety Pick.

To earn recognition in the 2020 Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards, each vehicle had to pass stringent crash tests and receive the highest rating of “Good” in each of them. These tests include passenger-side small overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, roof strength, and head restraint tests. This is also the first time the IIHS has included pedestrian crash prevention ratings in its awards’ results.

For the Top Safety Pick+ rating, the vehicle also has to get a “Good” rating in headlight testing and an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for its available front crash-prevention technology.

The Top Safety Pick award requires either an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating in front crash prevention and an “Acceptable” or a “Good” rating in the headlight test.

Toyota Introduces AWD Camry and Avalon

AWD Camry and Avalon | Toronto, ON

With many consumers demanding all-wheel drive on their vehicles, Toyota has decided to introduce this system throughout its lineup. Now, the Camry and Avalon sedans will offer Dynamic Torque Control AWD to provide drivers with a better grip on the road.

The Dynamic Torque Control AWD system works to provide the best traction possible in inclement and slippery weather. It minimizes AWD’s gas-guzzling tendencies by essentially becoming front-wheel drive when the enhanced traction isn’t needed. Then, once the system detects that you need better grip, the AWD will re-engage in an instant. It’s the same system used in the newest Toyota RAV4.

This system will be available on the Camry LE, XLE, SE, and XSE trim levels, along with the Avalon Limited trim.

Originally, these sedans weren’t designed with AWD models in mind, but the engineering team at Toyota Motor North America Research and Development in Saline, Michigan decided to develop these models with the market demand in mind. This is the first all-wheel-drive Camry since 1991 and the first-ever all-wheel-drive Avalon.

AWD Camry and Avalon models will only be available in North America. While they won’t be ready for the current cold months, they’ll arrive at Downtown Toyota and other dealerships in plenty of time for next winter.
