Advantages and Benefits of the 2017 Toyota Camry
Another advantage of the 2017 Camry is for safety. It offers a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, an option offered on XLE and XSE grades. Also, all Camry models come equipped with 10 standard airbags, an array that includes driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver’s and front passenger’s knee airbag. For additional peace of mind, the 2017 Camry comes standard with a no cost maintenance plan, which is good for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Also, 24-hour roadside assistance is included for 2 years, regardless of mileage.
The 2017 Camry is also fun-to-drive as well. It offers a choice of three powertrains — a 178-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and a hybrid model, which offers up to a 40 mpg combined rating. While Honda is offering a hybrid version of the Accord for 2017 after a one year hiatus, Toyota brings years of experience as the world leader of automotive hybrid technology with the Camry Hybrid. Also, Toyota added additional spot welds to the Camry’s door opening flanges to increase rigidity, which in turn enabled the suspension tuning needed to enable more spirited handling. The combination of MacPherson struts up front, a multi-link configuration at the rear and a stiffer body structure allows for unique suspension tuning across trim levels, helping contribute to the 2017 Camry's excellent driving characteristics.
