Toyota, renowned for its reliable and high-quality cars, recently launched the Toyota Camry S-Edition special edition. The car turned out to be very impressive in terms of appearance, and as it turned out, Toyota's marketers were right about the design. The cars are available from official dealers and are sold like buckwheat or poppy. They are sold out like buckwheat or pasta with toilet paper at the moment. What is the reason for such a rush around this car? Let us find out. Here we go!
The first look at the car, the exterior catches the eye. Daring and stylish design, hinting at sport, sharply distinguishes it from the general flow of so beloved sedans. Only the S-edition comes in a colour combination of white pearlescent and black metallic. The roof is black and the underside is white. The trim also features black elements which blend in very nicely with the overall image. The designers have added black mirrors, a small black decorative spoiler, door mouldings painted in black, rear lights with black edging. The bumpers are accented with red stripes.
Also only in this configuration owners will be available R18 series rims S-edition. If marketers Toyota wanted to surprise their customers, they succeeded. There is a mad demand for the model. It is understandable, in fact the same sedan, but looks just a gun!!!
There are also hints of sportiness of this car in the cabin. They are shown in red stitching. We can see it on the front and rear seats, as well as on the front panel. And... that, unfortunately, is all. You won't find any more differences from the usual Camry.
The insides are decisive.
In the modification S-edition is set 4-cylinder row 16-valve, gasoline engine capacity of 2.5 litres at 181 hp The same as in other modifications (Standard Plus, Classic, Elegance Safety, Prestige Safety and Suite Safety). The same volume, the same characteristics, the same settings, the same reliability. Acceleration according to the factory is 9.9 seconds. Not faster and not slower than its fellows. In options and options this car is the same as the car with Elegance.
But the difference from the Elegance is in the price. Today, these cars cost from 2,104,000 roubles versus 1,977,000 roubles for the Elegance. (Link to price list). The difference is 127,000 and that's without surcharges for the colour you choose. As official dealers write - for kitting S-edition the paintwork "metallic" is included in cost, and you will have to pay 35,000 roubles more for nacre 2PS. (It would be better to include "mother-of-pearl" in cost and to pay 21,000 extra for metallic).
By the way, it would be desirable to allocate separately anti-theft system which has been introduced only on this generation of Camry. It is called T-Mark. It is in fact the identifier of body elements with VIN-number of the automobile, which can be checked up at an official dealer. It is made for Toyota Camry cars (which by the way is on 3-th place among most stolen cars according to statistics. The data are taken from a portal of Ria news (link to statistics)) it was difficult to "break" the numbers.
The car is undeniably bright and stands out from the crowd. Bright features which are unusual for a premium sedan catch the eye at once. Designers managed to combine a business sedan and sports notes. But in fact, it is the same Toyota Camry in Elegance kitting, just with other coloring and bodykit. If you want quite reliable and appreciable car at the same time comfortable and practical, it is your variant. By the way, besides reliability, Toyota cars are famous for their liquidity in the secondary market. If the car is in good condition, you will tear it off with hands and feet. And you won't lose much in price.
And in conclusion I would like to remind: choose a car relying only on your feelings, emotions, and desires. The best car is the one you like.
