2020 Toyota Camry Redesign, Specs & Release Date – After an interruption of its importation into Europe, one of the flagship models of the Japanese brand will be distributed again on the Old Continent, with a hybrid electric motor.
There are icons of yesterday and icons of today. The Toyota Camry belongs to the second category. This large car (nearly 5 meters long), with more than 19 million copies scattered in a hundred countries since 1982, is the world’s best-selling saloon sedan. It will be available again in Europe after an interruption of its importation of several years. More diesel issue, however, at least in here: Toyota, with the exception of three models (two off-road and utility), decided last January to sell on the tricolor market only hybrid vehicles (a motor gasoline coupled to an electric motor) or pure gasoline.
2020 Toyota Camry Engine Specs – More Than 200 Horsepower
The Camry will be offered in Europe with a hybrid engine. Looking at the features of the American version, which the European version is expected to differ slightly, the car is powered by a four-cylinder cubing 2, 5 liters and developing 176 hp. The electric machine produces 118 hp. Both groups have a combined power of 208 hp. According to the French subsidiary of Toyota, the Camry could have a dozen additional horses on the Old Continent (the posh cousin Lexus ES, equipped with the same engine, displays 218 hp in Europe against 200 in the United States). It remains to be seen if the felt skating phenomenon, characteristic of the hybrid transmission of Toyota and Lexus, has been reduced. The consumption of the American model, in mixed use, would amount to 5, 1 l per 100 km.
Particularly well endowed with driving assistance, this 2020 Toyota Camry benefits, according to its manufacturer, from the “stylistic and technical philosophy of TNGA ( Toyota New Global Architecture ) architecture “. With a stretched roofline and side windows adjusted to the wheelbase, his aesthetic is a little more daring than those of the previous seven generations, without going to the grain of madness that manifests in this area his little sister CH-R. In our eyes, his physique evokes, from certain angles, that of a certain Renault Talisman. The ergonomics of its interior has been the subject of much care, as well as the finish, weak point of some models of the brand in recent years.
