2016 Toyota Camry Review Roundup: Did The Best-Selling Car In America Get Better?

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

The Toyota Camry is known as the best-selling car in America, which sets expectations at a high mark for the upcoming 2016 model.

Various reviews on the vehicle have mostly been positive though, which makes it entirely possible for the 2016 Toyota Camry to retain its title.

According to CNET’s Andrew Krok, among the good things about the 2016 Toyota Camry is that the sedan features significant interior space, with the vehicle being an accessible and easy one for drivers of all ages. This is accompanied by a new, youthful look that will surely attract younger drivers into purchasing the vehicle.

Kelley Blue Book’s Joe Tralongo also mentions the design of the vehicle doesn’t look like a “generic rental clone,” which is good enough for an affordable family sedan. The 2016 Toyota Camry, however, looks more youthful compared to the vehicle that is looking to dethrone it as the best-selling car in America, the Honda Accord.

Driving impressions of the vehicle, according to a full expert review on Edmunds, reveals that the 2016 Toyota Camry is more responsive compared to previous models, in addition to being generally more composed when turning corners. The ease of driving is even more pronounced in the non-base trims. Quietness and comfort, traits that the Camry has been known for, are still very much present in the 2016 model.

2016 Toyota RAV4 hybrid is most fuel-efficient AWD compact crossover

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

There are two trends that show no signs of slowing: Gas prices will continue to rise and Americans will continue to buy crossovers.

Toyota is hoping that Americans will start to buy hybrids again.

The 2016 RAV4 Hybrid is a first for the trailblazing compact crossover launched in 1996.

Toyota’s eighth hybrid model aims to stay ahead of the crossover curve, though there isn’t much direct competition outside of the family.

The hybrid offering comes as part of a midcycle refresh for the RAV4, which had its last full redesign in 2013. It looks mostly the same. More-slanted headlights and a more open grille make it appear surlier, or if you work for Toyota, sportier. The rear gets a chrome skid plate and pinched taillights. The XLE tester came with 17-inch alloy wheels, which give it a dash of ruggedness.

Prius’ Sweet 16 – Toyota’s hybrid comes of age

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

“How can you drive that?” the high-school student asked.

I was about to launch into the highlights of operating the 2016 Prius when it hit me. The 18-year-old wasn’t asking for an in-service on hybrids. No, the kid’s tone was the same one my elegant wife uses whenever I pull out one my well-aged T-shirts. She doesn’t get that sometimes I feel the need to wear my nostalgia and salute things long past, like the last race at Lions drag strip or the year my former paper, the Los Angeles Times, hit a million in circulation. It’s a pretty safe bet that the Prius, now in its fourth-generation, has better staying power. But markedly better performance, refinement and fuel stinginess don’t mean much to 18-year-olds whose idea of a high-tech alternative fuel vehicle may be a lifted pickup with a big diesel and a performance chip.

The Prius’s biggest (only?) drawback is its looks, which the jury appears to think is quirky, to put it gently. It may cheat the wind with an outstanding 0.24 coefficient of drag, but that’s not slick enough to win over style-conscious teens ­- or any buyer in the you-are-what-you-drive camp.

Evolutionary rather than revolutionary, this newest Prius still packs cutting-edge technology. Its bones are Toyota’s modular New Global Architecture, which will be used to spit out anything from a small sports car to an SUV using five basic layouts.

2016 Toyota RAV4 Review

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

Let’s cut to the chase: At 31 mpg in our tests, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has the best fuel economy of any SUV that doesn’t plug in.

In an era of two-buck gas (for however long that lasts), you may feel cavalier about that statistic, but don’t ignore the fact that the entire RAV4 lineup’s midcycle update also boasts an improved ride, a quieter cabin, and slightly updated styling.

Regardless of which version you pick, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 provides a strong blend of fuel efficiency, ride comfort, roominess, and reliability.
