The North American International Auto Show ( NAIAS 2017 ) is still going on for a few more days, and by the end Toyota will have shown 45 vehicles. The big story is the new generation of the Camry, Toyota’s flagship sedan, as well as the C-HR crossover coupe that has been making its way around US auto shows in the last year before finally stopping in Detroit.
The 2018 Camry
The eighth-generation Camry, which will go on sale with 2018 models, was built on the TNGA, or “Toyota New Global Architecture,” which was also used in the new Toyota Innova Crysta and the Fortuner, and utilizes sharp, bold styling and defined lines for sporty, aggressive looks.
The Camry’s new sloping roof and sleek profile give a more luxurious impression than previous generations, which is matched by its superior driving dynamics, a redesigned cabin with seamlessly integrated touchscreen, and a unique center console.
The Camry Hybrid will also get a redesign, with some minor differences from the gasoline Camry, including a backlit blue Toyota symbol and a different grille. It will also include the next-generation Toyota Hybrid System.
The 2018 C-HR
The C-HR is set to go on sale in 2018 as well. Originally meant to be part of the Scion lineup, the C-HR takes obvious design cues from the funky, youth-oriented Scion styles. Its deep curves and sharp lines perfectly combine the TNGA design philosophy with the crossover coupe style, giving Toyota a great contender for the subcompact SUV market.
