For as long as I can remember I've been obsessed with cars from when I was a little bitty kid. It was hot wheels, it was Matchbox cars, it was Micro Machines, it was slot cars, it was those the big wheels, it was anything that had wheels that I could drive or play with and pretend I was driving. I remember the first time I saw a Lamborghini Countach we were at a gas station and it was white and I remember looking at my dad and saying, dad, what is that and he said: "oh that's a Lamborghini." I didn't know what a Lamborghini was but I always remember what he said right after that, "if you work hard, if you do the right thing one day you could be successful enough and you could afford to drive a car like that." I was eight years old and I could still remember that 15 years ago that statement more than any other. It shaped my whole entire life because I knew that no matter what I did with my life I was going to become the kind of person that drove cars like that. And this fuel for owning amazing cars and appreciating amazing cars is what drove me to become an Automobile Engineer. I've been extremely fortunate to study all sorts of different cars, muscle cars, supercars, exotic cars, big trucks.

For mid-sized sedans, there is no more important car than the Toyota Camry. It's the number one selling car in America and very popular in Canada as well. So for 2018, this is a big deal because they change the entire car from the ground up, a brand new architecture. We're here to find out more about it the eighth generation Toyota Camry.

Toyota Camry is all new from the ground up and built off with the new Toyota global architecture. I remember seeing this new Camry added debut this year at the North American International Auto Show and I can barely believe my eyes. It just looked too cool to be a Camry. Seeing in a Camry, it has an aggressive sporty look. It's now lower longer and wider than the outgoing model and now comes in two distinct looks. You can go for the luxury look which has a really nice cohesive premium upscale design or you can go for the sporty look with the blacked-out grille and sports front end with an optional two-tone paint job on the top model. Either way, you go, this is not your daddy's Camry anymore.

Just a look at that hood with its scalloped edges. The LED light, the 19-inch rims on this model. The last Camry design was a little bit edgy compared to its predecessor but nothing close to the new Toyota Camry. You can actually say "man, this is a good-looking car." It has a beautiful interior. I thought it was like a BMW interior. It really is pretty stunning, it's kind of shocking. You don't really expect it in a Camry. So with all-new interior, this happens to be the top-of-the-line sport model

You have entertainment system 7, kind of has an avant-garde type of styling with a lot of curves. It looks really modern. I don't know if it's a little bit too modern in the center. You have the choice of either a 4.2 or 7 inch TFT display. Now here is some bad news once again with the Toyota there is no Android Auto or Apple Carplay but the good news is that they have their own system now called "in-tune." So you just plug your phone in, so it uses your own phone and your data to get things like navigation and similar apps over the course.

Today we've driven this Camry about 600 kilometers and the seats are very supportive, very comfortable. Lots of room front and back. We mentioned the Camry is all-new so it wouldn't be complete without new powertrains. You have hybrid engines, so first of all, brand-new four-cylinder two and a half liter putting on over 200 horsepower torque and then a three and a half V6 putting out over 300 horsepower. I think all the models other than the hybrid get a brand new 8-speed automatic transmission. So you put all that together and you get better fuel economy, 15% on the four-cylinder, 5% on the V6.

The Camry has even fewer vibrations and is quieter than the previous model. The new platform also has a lower center of gravity improving handling and better visibility due to a lower hood and placement of the pillar. I remember the launch of the previous generation Camry and I was very impressed with that car. Now, this is definitely not your dad's Camry anymore and they really have made a kind of a spot for younger Camry buyers. With that Sports Package by far this is the most dynamic and engaging Camry ever and as long as people continue buying sedans this is going to remain top of the list. Thanks for reading.
