Toyota Camry SL 2.5 2018 review
Growing up in the leafy burbs sedans were the chariots of choice for mums and dads. Along with the two-and-a-half kids, quarter-acre block and Hills Hoist, sedans were a staple of family life.

The $51,990 Calais-V sits at the upper end of the ZB Commodore line-up, at a full $11,000 more expensive than the Calais. Like the Calais, the Calais-V is limited to the Liftback bodystyle unless you opt for the off-road flavoured Tourer.
Beyond the Calais’ spec list, the Calais-V adds a Bose premium sound system, ventilated front seats, a massage function and powered side bolsters for the driver’s seat, heated rear seats, a sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, a 360-degree camera setup, colour head-up display, adaptive LED headlights, electronic sunroof and 20-inch alloys.
The Calais-V is only available with the 235kW/381Nm 3.6-litre V6 engine and all-wheel drive, which also means a nine-speed torque converter auto.
Official combined fuel consumption is 9.1L/100km and the V6 will impressively deliver its best on regular 91RON unleaded.
