[YesAuto Car Purchase Manual] The new Camry was officially launched on November 16, with a price range of 179,800 to 799,800 yuan. It is the first product of the TNGA architecture. There is no trace of the seventh-generation Camry on its body. The new car is one Before the change, the image of the uncle who was modest and at home turned into a sporty man. This time, GAC Toyota launched a model with 3 sets of power systems and 9 configurations in one go. Perhaps you are wondering which one to choose. Today I will give you a detailed analysis.

● Static performance review

The new Camry has four models: LE (normal version with low profile), XLE (normal version with high profile), HEV (hybrid), XSE (sports version), and has two exterior design options. Even the regular version is sporty enough to look at. The long and narrow headlights, the exaggerated big mouth, and the low body all exude a sporty and fierce atmosphere. The front face of the sports model is quite different from that of the normal model. The front face that looks like Lexus gives it more aggressiveness, and the exhaust air looks very ostentatious.

The “Y”-shaped central control layout of the new Camry is relatively novel, and the sense of fashion and luxury is significantly improved compared to the older models. The carriage uses a large amount of leather material, which is satisfactory in touch and visual effects, and the assembly process has reached a very high level. The 2.5L sports model can choose a red interior, which is easier to stimulate the driver's desire to control.

The new Camry has not made significant progress in terms of seating space. The front/rear seating space can only be considered average in the same class, but it is definitely sufficient for home use.

● Which power to choose

The new Camry has three sets of powertrains, 2.0L, 2.5L, and hybrid to choose from. The advantage of the 2.0L naturally aspirated engine plus 6AT gearbox power system is that the technology is mature, the reliability is guaranteed, and the price is relatively affordable, which is suitable for pragmatic consumers who focus on home use. The new 2.5L engine has a compression ratio of 13.0:1 and a thermal efficiency of up to 40%. The transmission system is matched with an 8-speed automatic manual gearbox. The power system has higher specifications and is suitable for consumers who pursue advanced technology and value power. The hybrid model uses a 2.5L naturally aspirated engine with an electric motor. The thermal efficiency of the 2.5L engine is as high as 41%. The transmission system is matched with an E-CVT gearbox. The fuel economy is the best among the three sets of power systems. , Suitable for consumers who plan to hold the car for a long time and use the car relatively frequently. For most consumers, choosing a 2.0L model is sufficient. (Note: The manufacturer provides an 8-year or 200,000 km warranty for the battery of the hybrid version. If you purchase the car before December 31, 2018, you can also enjoy the “unlimited years, unlimited mileage” battery extended warranty service)

There is a certain difference in the power performance of the hybrid and 2.5L models in the initial acceleration stage. In the ECO mode, the hybrid version of the model relies on the electric motor to complete the starting action, which makes people feel lighter, but the difference is not obvious after the speed rises. In ECO and NORMAL modes, the 2.5L model's 8AT gearbox upshifts actively, treats the accelerator pedal gently, and upshifts at around 1800rpm, basically when the vehicle speed reaches 90km/h, it can increase to 8 gear. The chassis is more adequate for the resolution of fine bumps, and the suspension also has a certain degree of toughness and a certain sense of high quality. The overall driving experience of the new Camry is quite good.

● Configuration analysis

The new Camry can be roughly divided into a normal version, a hybrid version and a sports version. The normal version is divided into 2.0L and 2.5L models. The hybrid models all use a combination of a 2.5L engine and an electric motor. The engine of the sports version is It is the same as the normal version, and also has 2.0L and 2.5L models.

◆ 2.0E Elite Edition/ 2.0E Leading Edition/ 2.0G Deluxe Edition

Guide price: 179,800 yuan / 189,800 yuan / 199,800 yuan

The 2.0E Elite Edition is the lowest equipped model in the whole series. Its significance is mainly to lower the threshold and allow more consumers who are on a tight budget but like the new Camry to own it.

Basic configuration of 2.0E Elite Edition

The basic configuration of the new Camry is quite sincere. The whole system comes standard with far/low beam integrated LED headlights, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, rear air conditioning outlets, four windows and one-button up/down and other practical configurations. The appearance of the lowest-equipped model is basically the same as that of the next-lower model, and the details are slightly different from the high-end model. First of all, the two models have one LED daytime running light belt, while the high-end models have three. Secondly, the rim size of these two models is 16 inches, and the high-end models have a larger wheel size. The tail is basically the same as the high-end models. The layout and styling of the interior are basically the same as those of high-end models, but the difference with high-end models can still be seen through the central control screen and steering wheel.

The lowest model is 10,000 yuan cheaper than the second-low model. The second-low model has more practical configurations such as leather steering wheel, leather seat, and electric driver's seat adjustment. At the same time, these configurations are very good for a medium-sized car. It is necessary. After all, consumers of this class of models still value face, and no one wants passengers to immediately tell that this is a low-profile version as soon as they board the car. In contrast, the configuration of the leading version is more in line with the requirements of medium-sized cars, but it will be slightly inconvenient for daily use without reversing radar and images.

The 2.0G luxury version is 10,000 yuan more expensive than the leading version, the engine power parameters are slightly increased, the wheel rim is also one size larger, and the configuration includes a series of reversing images, keyless entry/one-key start, central control color large screen, etc. Very practical configuration, which is very convenient for daily use, and there are many more active safety configurations, which are difficult to install in the future. It is also worthwhile to spend an extra 10,000 yuan to buy so many configurations. Therefore, between these two cars, I would recommend the 2.0G luxury version.

◆ 2.5G Deluxe Edition/2.5Q Ultimate Edition

Guide price: 219,800 yuan / 259,800 yuan

There are two flagship models, one is a 2.5L model, and the other is a hybrid model. Both of them represent the highest level of configuration of the new Camry. Then let’s take a look at how the 2.5Q flagship version is cost-effective.

In terms of configuration, it has more comfortable features such as panoramic images, front seat heating/ventilation, and three-zone independent automatic air conditioning. Between the deluxe version and the ultimate version, we recommend the deluxe version, because the configuration of the deluxe version is completely sufficient and the price is more acceptable.

In terms of configuration, the 2.5G deluxe version has more panoramic sunroofs than the 2.0G deluxe version. At the same time, the size of the central control screen and the size of the wheel are also larger.

Toyota's hybrid system has always had a good reputation. If you plan to hold the car for a long time and use the car frequently, you can consider hybrid models. It is relatively easy to pay back.

The 2.5HQ flagship version is a full 40,000 yuan more expensive than the 2.5HG luxury version, and the price is close to 280,000 yuan. Although there are many more configurations that can improve comfort, I think the configuration of the luxury version can fully meet the daily use, if not There is a rigid demand for these extra configurations, so there is no need to spend an extra 40,000 yuan. On the whole, the 2.5HG luxury version is recommended for the hybrid version.

◆ 2.0S/2.5S Fengshang version ( sports model )

Guide price: 205,800 yuan / 222,800 yuan

The new Camry has two sports models. The sports version uses a different shape design from the other models. People who like the sports version basically don’t consider the normal and hybrid models, so there is no need to compare it with other models. The configuration of the Shang version is basically equivalent to that of the luxury version.

The appearance of the sports model is more radical, and the difference between it and the normal model can be recognized at a glance through the front and rear of the car. I think consumers who buy a brand-new Camry will first decide whether to buy the sports version or the other versions through the appearance, and then choose the configuration after finalizing which version to buy.

If you don’t care about power, you can choose 2.0. S Fengshang version, but if you pay attention to power performance, you have to choose 2.5S Fengshang version, of course, you have to pay an extra 17,000 yuan for this. The interior color of 2.5S Fengshang version is more red than 2.0S Fengshang version. If you like this color, you can only choose 2.5S Fengshang version.

● Full text summary

The new Camry can be described as “subversion”. It completely subverts our understanding of “Camry” and “Toyota”. The sharp shape, texture interior, and good driving control experience all prove its products. The force is strong enough. A total of 9 models were launched this time, giving consumers a relatively large choice. I think the 2.0G/2.5G luxury version has the most cost-effective, abundant configuration, and two sets of power systems have their own characteristics. In addition, the 2.5HG luxury version is also very cost-effective, and the configuration is basically the same as the fuel luxury version. Although it is more expensive than the fuel version, it is undeniable that the hybrid version has better fuel economy. Fee to make up. As for whether to choose the normal version or the sports version, it depends entirely on personal preferences and needs. After all, the difference in their styles is still very obvious.
