Driving the Most Desired
It is easy to assume that driving one of the most purchased automobiles would be a regular occurrence.
However, believe it or not, this is our first rendezvous with such a top-seller.
What graced Grasso’s Garage this week was none other than the celebrated 2023 Toyota Camry, beautifully adorned in Cavalry Blue.
This particular shade has become the talk of the town, quickly ascending to be a favorite.
Impressive Features: More than Just Good Looks
Toyota’s Camry has always been a beacon of reliability and performance, and this year’s model does not fall short.
The model on our hands, the XSE Hybrid, is a testament to Camry’s unyielding commitment to excellence.
Beneath its hood lies the brand-proven 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and an electronically controlled variable transmission, generating a substantial 208 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque.
An additional $1,760 navigation package caught our attention, as it brought along a Premium audio system, JBL speakers, and a subwoofer.
Dominating the interior was a 9-inch center console infotainment system – straightforward in its operations and function.
Not to be overlooked, a 10-inch color heads-up display added to the modernity.
Where XSE Stands
In the lineup of Toyota Camry models, the XSE is but one of five.
However, in terms of price, it holds the fourth position.
The design philosophy for the XSE leans heavily towards exterior aesthetics and interior comfort, remembering the trademark hybrid powertrain Toyota has meticulously refined over the years.
The 2023 XSE embodies what Camry stands for – sheer brilliance.
Numbers That Speak
Toyota’s legacy is not just about making cars; it is about crafting masterpieces that people want.
The Camry’s sales figures underline its popularity – a whopping 300K units in 2022 and 313K in 2021, as reported by Toyota.
Although the RAV4 took the crown with just under 400K sales in 2022, the Camry is hot on its heels, securing its position as the second best-selling vehicle in Toyota’s fleet.
Moreover, given its impeccable balance of utility, safety, comfort, style, and aesthetics, it is easy to see why.
