Toyota to Debut Camry and Corolla Special Editions, and Updated Avalon
Toyota has released a teaser image and a statement to introduce the refreshed 2016 Avalon model at the Chicago Auto Show. The new sedan will be revealed next Thursday on 12th of February. What is more, the Japanese company will also make another two debuts. They are for the 2016 Camry and Corolla Special Editions. These are limited production models that are equipped with unique sport-themed features.
To redesign the 2015 Camry, Toyota literally changed almost everything and re-engineered nearly 2,000 parts. The only thing unchanged was the roof. Now, the new Special Edition adds to the bold look of the car an extra dose of both aggressiveness and technology.
It is based on the SE trim level, powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission. It will come standard with the Star Safety System.
This limited production Camry will add to the appeal of its exterior unique 18-inch alloy wheels with machined face contrasted with gloss black painted accents, power tilt/slide moonroof and smoked tail lamp treatment as well as and unique exterior badge. It will be offered in two colors: Blizzard Pearl and new Blue Streak Metallic.
Inside, the sports seats trimmed with black SofTex bolsters and blue patterned inserts will feature high contrast blue stitching. The same design treatment is included in the shift boot and dash. Among other goodies are sport meter cluster with blue details and white background, Entune Audio Plus, Smart Key with Pushbutton Start, Qi wireless charging and floor mats with logo.
The next vehicle to have a Special Edition is the Corolla and it is based on the S Plus grade. Sporty styling features, inside and out, complement the car. Next to the new steering wheel paddle shifters, rear disc brakes and Sport Driving Mode, there is an array of additional standard features.
Precisely it adds 17-inch alloy wheels with gloss black finish and just like the Camry – unique exterior badge. The car will be offered in three distinctive colors: Absolutely Red, Black Sand Pearl and Super White.
The interior is one-of-a-kind thanks to the black design scheme with red contrast stitching. Red accents are also featured on the dash and door trim. There is also Smart Key System with pushbutton start and floor mats with logo. Here, the tilt/slide moonroof is available as an option.
Another option for Camry and Corolla Special Editions is the Entune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite.
2016 Camry Special Edition will have a limited production of 12,000 units and will run from August to January. 2016 The Corolla Special Edition will be produced between August and December and will be limited to 8,000 units.
