The authors of the Throttle House channel decided to organize a race in a straight line with the participation of cars that are very unusual for such competitions. The main hero of the race was the newest Toyota Camry sedan in the XV80 body, which was matched first with the current generation of Honda Accord, and then with the previous generation of Toyota Camry, which does not have a hybrid power plant and has a powerful V6 under the hood. It turned out that the engine decides everything.

You can no longer choose the powertrain of the new Camry: only the type of drive as part of the THS hybrid system based on a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated engine. The 232-horsepower sedan with all-wheel drive weighs 1,655 kilograms.

Sales of the new Toyota Camry have started in the USA: cheaper than expected

The new Accord, at 1,606 kilograms, is lighter than its rival, but its 2.0-liter hybrid powertrain produces only 204 horsepower. In addition, Toyota, unlike Honda, has all-wheel drive.

The next rival of the new Camry was the previous generation Camry, but in the TRD version – without all-wheel drive, but with a 301-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and a weight of 1620 kilograms. And this duel clearly showed why Toyota fans miss the flagship engine.

They would displace the Toyota Camry. If sold in Russia
