The 2018 Toyota Camry is all the rage. It has consistently been getting good reviews from experts and car enthusiasts. As early as January this year, you rarely find negative comments written or said about it. The latest Camry may be the best Toyota has ever made in years.

Don't get me wrong. Toyota is Toyota. Let's leave it at that. It has proven its credibility over decades not only in the U.S. but the world over. It has solidified its reputation for producing good quality cars in every segment conceivable.

The world particularly got excited on its CH-R.

However, not many were made fans for a myriad of reasons. Some say it is underpowered and another good number are not particularly keen on its design. For the most part, it is considered just an average subcompact crossover.

Then there's Toyota's off-roader offering which is exceptional. Its 4Runner is highly capable and fun of driving. Even better, it is considered more affordable than other off-roaders in the market. However, off-roaders don't contribute much to the market share pie. It is more a niche segment rather than mainstream. Therefore, its sales may not be enough to increase Toyota's overall market standing.

The 2018 Toyota Camry is the Japanese auto maker's gem. It may even be considered its "Piece De Resistance" and for good reasons.

Why is the latest Camry special?

Here are reasons why the most recent Camry should be on top of every car buyer's list:

  • It boasts a unique design which steers clear from its usual "boring" reputation. The latest Camry comes in with an aggressive design approach as evidenced by its entirely new engine, cabin, exterior, and even its suspension.
  • It is the first to ride on TNGA or Toyota New Global Architecture platform which will be used in all of its soon-to-be-released cars.
  • There is a hybrid model available. Its battery placement is under the rear seats so as not to compromise the trunk space.
  • The 2018 Toyota Camry's engines are punchier and more powerful. Depending on the engine used, it is capable of producing at least 203-horsepower output.
  • Surprisingly, the Toyota Camry is the winner of 2016 AMI or American Made Index. It may be Japanese by orientation, but its parts and other components are predominantly sourced domestically.

Should one buy it?
