Moving away from the "corset" front but still has some remnants of the shape.

Interior finally got away from the "mulva" vents/ center console that is just hideous and in practically all new cars.

Nick, would you be buying a new 2018 or wait til it gets 16 years old and 200K? crazy

Lexus or bumper car grill, Impala rear wheel well treatment, and those weird Prius taillight things...but the fastback look is nice.

I like the side view and the rear , but not the front.

Now if the bluetooth phone had a cylon voice , that might work out to being cool, otherwise no.

Have driven a couple of 2003 Toyotas of late (Corolla and LandCruiser-Prado). I find them "hard" to drive because of how easy they are to drive, if that makes sense. Still, the litte 'rolla is quicker than my old battleship.

Another thing I dislike about modern vehicles is the cavernous dashboard. All that collects huge amounts of heat when parked in the sun, great in the winter, but dreadful in summer. Particularly dreadful in summer when coupled to an A/C system relying on a pathetic little electric fan to do the dirty work and using fresh air. I'll take vehicle using an engine-driven fan + electric pusher fan (for A/C boost) anyday. Performance is far superior.
Even the '03 'rolla struggles at idle in tropical heat/high humidity with fresh air. It'll freeze the [censored] outta you, provided you're moving and using recirc.

The expensive LED headlamps have replaceable lenses held on by a gel adhesive, instead of permanent glue. The modders/aftermarket will like this, you will pop off a lens and install a new one, will not have to replace the entire assembly.

Also this is not a "refresh" but a FULL NEW REDESIGN.... and it's about time!

The 2.5L engine is all-new, employing several of Toyota's most advanced ICE technologies, and achieving 40% thermal efficiency.

The Hybrid is sporting fuel economy near the likes of the Prius! But will the CVT have [censored] fake shift points? From what I read is that the "sport" mode has the [censored] shift points, nothing is said about other modes.

Yanking your chain. New cars aren't the smartest financial move at any age but we buy them anyhow. The cost of Az yearly registration is one reason.

I like it. It looks like it has taken styling cues from the Mazda 6.

I suppose it's better than what is currently be sold; but that's not saying much.

Too aggressive looking for a Camry. It's trying to be something it's not.

I'm sure it will sell well, but can't say I'm interested.

Yes, I think I know what you mean. I call it brain dead steering; someplace else (TTAC?) I think put their finger on it better: there is no on-center dead spot in the steering. Any pressure on the wheel will move it. It's not "set and forget" steering (see Mirage) but close enough: steering is too light. All three of my non-electric PS Toyota's have dead steering. Which is fine, in a parking lot, horrible once moving though.

I found an article where it states that the 2.5 is all new. Specs are posted as well, saying that it will produce 202 HP and 184 Ft.Lbs. The CR is listed at 13:1.

If this combo of the 2.5 and the 8-speed does not impress, I'm not sure what will.

Definitely looks better, and the fact that it doesn't have a CVT is good.

And gotta love that ATF fluid level check procedure requiring a vacuum holding device with a special temp adjustable probe.



keep beating that drum.
