Glittery, bright red paint in what Toyota calls Ruby Flare Pearl and with more contour lines than WTF moments in “Game of Thrones,” the 2018 Camry Hybrid stunned me with its visual presence. From the belt-line dip at the cab to the odd little C-pillar crease, Toyota’s designers express a lot of feeling in this new Camry.

I almost expected a Lexus badge up front, rather than the upended-oval-and-steer-horns Toyota emblem.

And beyond style, the new Camry looks big, not terribly surprising as it gains a couple of inches in wheelbase and about 1 inch in overall length versus the previous generation. Although wider by a half-inch, it also drops an inch in height, which likely explains the nearly 3-cubic-foot drop in passenger volume. That said, the interior felt roomy in both front and rear seats.

The Camry, Toyota’s midsize sedan, gained a reputation as a boring transportation appliance, yet still manages to hold the top spot in US car sales for many years running. At this year’s Detroit auto show last January, Toyota introduced its completely re-engineered and restyled 2018 Camry.
