Toyota dazzles 2018 L.A. Auto Show with very special appearances, including a first look at Camry & Highlander Nightshade Editions.
Toyota is pulling out all the stops for the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, happening Nov. 30-Dec. 9 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Featuring the debut of the Corolla Hybrid (pictured above), Prius AWD-e, TRD sedans and Nightshade Special Edition vehicles, Toyota’s A-List lineup is sure to captivate in La La Land. Toyota revealed a series of firsts in Los Angeles, including:
Corolla Hybrid. Since its debut 53 years ago, Corolla has seen many changes that have made it the best-selling nameplate in the world. But none is more exciting than the first-ever Hybrid edition. The 2020 Corolla Hybrid’s 1.8-liter engine maximizes fuel efficiency while reducing emissions, helping it achieve more than an estimated 50 miles per gallon. Not only is it efficient, but it’s also loaded with safety, equipped with Toyota’s standard suite of advanced safety technology, Toyota Safety Sense.

Prius AWD-e. Boasting an estimated 52 mpg in the city, the new Prius AWD-e is one of the most fuel-efficient AWD-equipped vehicles in America, now allowing for more adventures outside of the city! The new AWD-e system (“e” stands for electric), provides additional traction in certain conditions including inclement weather, snow or rain, giving you the confidence to expand your horizons.
TRD Camry and TRD Avalon. Toyota is bringing the excitement of the race track to the road with the first ever TRD Camry and TRD Avalon. With striking front and side aero kits, a dynamic rear spoiler, suspension and brake upgrades, these sporty sedans tapped into the Toyota Racing Development heritage to satisfy the race car driver in all of us.
