Drove by a 2018 Camry XSE this morning...

...and felt superior in my 2018 6 Sig.

That is all.

I rented a Camry a couple of months ago. Between that big mouth bass grille and the chintzy interior, I was longing to turn it in and return to my 2015 6. I will admit, though, that I was surprised by the driving dynamics. If it had better tires.... I'd still want to be back in my 6.

After driving the 6 for a few days I'm really happy with it. It truly feels special and really well made. The feeling of solidity and overall fit and finish is outstanding. And the Machine Gray paint is really nice.

Convinced for the price nothing can really touch it. Especially when the Camry is 40K.

Still very early but so far zero regrets.

Congrats! I didnít read that you traded in for the Signature. It only gets better.

Of course, it's perfectly engineered for what it was designed to be. "Fun" was not in the design document, unfortunately.

I've been noticing the newly designed Camry's lately and I've decided I just don't care for it. It's as though the designers at Toyota were trying a little too hard to make the car look aggressive. This is a weird comparison, but it reminds me of Pontiac's attempt to make their cars more visually aggressive in the 90s and 00s by adding those stupid air strakes on the doors.


The 6 just looks more naturally attractive and flowing. I still think the rear of my '14 is the best looking car in just about any parking lot around here.
