2018 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Toyota Camry

Serving League City, TX

Compact cars are an economical choice for buyers. Compared to other classes of cars, compact vehicles are typically fuel-efficient with lower maintenance costs. Toyota Camry, especially, is a popular choice among individuals who are looking for an economy car. The 2017 Camry model has a MPG rating of 24 for city and 33 for highway; the 2018 Toyota Camry L has a combined MPG rating of 34. Here's how they compare in performance and features to meet customers' needs.

Performance

As previously mentioned, the latest Toyota Camry 2018 model is fuel-efficient with 29 MPG city, 41 MPG highway, and 34 MPG combined. These numbers are noticeably higher when compared to its 2017 precedent. Both models are equally affordable, with basic car packages selling in the low to mid $23,000's.

The 2017 and 2018 Camry models have a 2.5-liter 4 cylinder DOHC 16-valve engines. As well, they both have ultra low emission ratings which make them environmentally-friendly.

The infotainment system in the 2018 Toyota Camry did improve. Entune audio system with connected navigation apps are installed in both year models; though all 2018 Camry models have the upgraded Entune 3.0., which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, radio and MP3 functionality, GPS, and a USB 2.0 port that allows iPhone connectivity for hands-free services. Many of 2018 model's newest infotainment features are available as an add-on in the 2017 models.

Appearance

One major difference test drivers will notice in the two models's appearance is their headlights. 2018 Toyota Camry vehicles have LED headlights that are more energy-efficient and longer-lasting; this applies to their taillights as well. Basic 2017 models, on the other hand, come with halogen headlights, although 2017 Camry XLE models are built with LED daytime running lights with an on-and-off feature.

Both 2017 and 2018 Toyota Camry come with color-keyed power mirrors. The 2017 models have manual-folding, heated mirrors; the 2018 Camry LE and XLE have outside mirrors that come with an optional turn-signal and blind spot warning indicators feature. Another new feature available for high-end 2018 Camry are door handles with touch-sensor locking capability. However, for those that enjoy enjoy moonroofs, 2018 L series don't come with that option, but the other 2018 and all 2017 Camry series do.

Safety

2017 Camry models have a built-in Star Safety System, which includes ABS, smart stop technologies, traction control, and enhanced vehicle stability control--as do 2018 models. As well, the 2017 and 2018 models have tire pressure monitoring systems, ten airbags, energy-absorbing collapsible columns, and side-impact door beams.

What's new in 2018 models is Toyota Safety Sense P, which is built-in to detect pedestrians and lane departure actions. As always, ToyotaCare comes with both year models to give you a no cost maintenance plan with roadside assistance.
