Camry Nightshade Sinister looks with decent manners


It was a great week driving around the Washington DC metropolitan area in the Toyota Camry nightshade edition all-wheel drive. It features 18-inch wheels and bold dark accents in the interior. The exterior has a sinister appearance.

The model I drove also came with the 7-inch touchscreen display that integrates kindly with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It was pretty sporty on my drive in DC on I-495 or all the way West on I-70 to Hagerstown and to West Virginia on I-81. I also drove North to Baltimore on I-95. It has a four-cylinder engine that makes 202 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It gets an EPA-rated 34 miles per gallon on the highway. The seats are nice and firm and comfortable.

It has Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+. So it has an auto brake hold and a lot of technology features. It also has a steering keep assist feature. I just enjoy riding around with my family in the Camry. It comes with six speakers. My drives were pretty calming. I was able to listen to both watercolors on Sirius and also the songs that I’ve made with the Carnegie Mellon music department.  Paradise is my favorite record to test audio quality with. Though this model didn’t have the premium upgraded sound system.

The base price on the Toyota SE nightshade edition AWD is  $28,585. The delivered price came out to be $29,839. For more information visit
