What could be better than a week of luxury, inside a car that changes from business to pleasure at the push of a few buttons? I was thrilled when Toyota offered to let me try out the most beautifully appointed Toyota Camry Hybrid SE. Having never driven a Toyota Camry before – I was in for a treat! When this gorgeous car pulled up to my front door, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Edgy and fun styling made me so excited to give it a test drive!
Here is a look at my adventures this past week, and all the ways the Toyota Camry made me feel like a Princess!
1) It’s a gorgeous ride! The Toyota Camry’s styling was recently redesigned – and it’s new muscular & sleek look is truly striking. It’s fun to turn heads, even when you’re just out doing errands! I love the new metallic color options too. The Toyota Camry Hybrid that I drove was in the color “Blue Streak Metallic” and it was a talking point everywhere I went. I must have been asked a million times what color it was by strangers in parking lots!
The Car’s blue color gleams in the sunlight, and really shows off how sleek this car’s look is! Driving a Toyota Camry Hybrid will make you feel spoiled!
2) Creature Comforts abound. While I was trying out the Camry, Toyota treated me to a blow out at DryBar! On the way there I had the Camry sunroof all the way open – and the wind whipping through my hair felt awesome! But you better believe after my hair was done, the sunroof got closed. Ha! I couldn’t ruin the new hair! But I was still pampered in the Camry, don’t you worry.
The Multimedia Touch Screen allowed me access to SXM Radio, Pandora, I Heart Radio, and lot’s of other music apps! A touchscreen makes it easy to navigate a map or your entertainment selections. And leather seats have adaptability in 8 different directions.
Everything about this car wants you to feel comfortable!
3) This Car will make you look like a better driver than you are! Packed with high tech features, this ride aims to make a trip cross country or just across the street – easy and pleasant. I found this out first hand on my way to a Mother’s Day brunch with my family! One of the features I most enjoyed was the ‘Panaromic View Monitor’ that let me have a perfect view all around the vehicle. It made it easy to see how close I was to other cars when parking! The ‘Intelligent Clearance Sonar’ also alerted me when objects were behind me, and I was in reverse. At one point it alerted me when a car was coming down the street I wanted to pull into, before I could even see the car! Amazing.
The Toyota Camry’s ‘Pre-collision System’ alerted me when it saw a possible obstacle in my path. Not only does it alert you, it will even help apply breaks for you if it senses you need it. And I can’t say how helpful ‘Lane Deperature’ was to highway driving. It gives you a visual on your dashboard of how well your car is staying in your current lane, and actually tells you if it senses you a veering out of your lane! Some Texas highways have 7 lanes of traffic- so lane alert is a huge help here.
You look like a great driver using the Toyota Camry’s technology!
4) Get a moment of quiet! The Toyota Camry Hybrid hardly seems on and running, when you first start it’s key less entry engine. Whisper quiet, you can barely tell it’s running! The electric engine lets you focus on the music or conversations you want to hear in inside your vehicle, not a loud engine! And the Hybrid engine optimizes fuel economy, saving you money as well as making your drive more enjoyable.
Zen and serenity in the family car? Yes, it’s possible!
Thank you to Toyota for allowing me the chance to get to know the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE. I’ve never driven a Hybrid before, and I really enjoyed the interaction between the electric and gas motors. I also really enjoyed the pampering both in the car and out!
I highly recommend this car for a family that wants a marriage between form and function. The Toyota Camry feels like luxury in every way, but still has all the safety features the modern day family wants!
I absolutely loved driving it. And I bet your family will too.
