Toyota’s Camry & Corolla to Get Special Edition Models

Toyota will debut two new special edition versions of its Camry and Corolla cars this week at the Chicago Auto Show. We look at what makes them so ‘special’.

Just a year after a major refresh, the Toyota Camry (seen in the main picture above) is set to get a special edition model for 2016. The sportier new edition is based on the Camry SE and features 18-inch alloy wheels, smoked taillights, a unique badge and will come in two colours: Blizzard Pearl and Blue Streak Metallic.

On the inside, the new Camry will boast high contrast blue stitching on the seats, dash and shift boot, as well as a range of other touches that will give the car an “extra dose of both aggressiveness and technology”, Toyota says.

Other features are expected to include a power tilt/slide moonroof, Smart Key System with pushbutton start, Entune Audio Plus system and Qi wireless charging. The Camry special edition will be powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The special edition Toyota Corolla gets a similar styling treatment as the Camry, but promises an improved driving experience due to the additional ‘sport driving mode’, paddle shifters and rear disc brakes.

It will be based on the Corolla S Plus grade and feature unique 17-inch alloy wheels, special edition badging and come in three colours: Black Sand Pearl, Absolutely Red and Super White.

A black interior with red contrast stitching, red dash accents and special edition floor mats with logo, as well as a few other touches, complete the Corolla special edition. It too gets a Smart Key System with pushbutton start and a power tilt/slide moonroof is an option.

The Toyota Camry special edition and Toyota Corolla special edition will be limited to 12,000 units and 8,000 units respectively.
