For the 2021 model year, the Camry will come with a newly restyled front end. It will have a more defined lower intake area, while the SE and XSE grades will flaunt a honeycomb-style grille and side vent inserts. The 2021 Camry will also come available as a new, eco-friendly trim: the XSE Hybrid.

Along with more trim configurations and a new look, the 2021 Camry will now offer the all-new Toyota Safety Sense® 2.5+ package – and is the first Toyota to do so. This suite of safety technologies offers enhanced features beyond the prior package, including the addition of intersection support for the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, so that the system can detect an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian when turning left. The 2021 Camry will also come standard with Rear Seat Reminder and Automatic High Beams.

Other updates for this Toyota sedan include floating seven- and nine-inch touch screen displays, luxurious herringbone pattern seats on the XLE trim, a revised interior design, and new exterior colours.

Car Seat Safety Mistakes All Parents Should Know About

Car seats help keep your children safe while in the car. When you’re a new parent and are unfamiliar with car seats, it can be difficult to know if you’re using your child’s car seat correctly. To help keep your kids safe, make sure you keep these common car seat safety mistakes in mind so you can avoid them.

Incorrect installation

Installing your car seat incorrectly can happen, as can buckling your child improperly. To ensure you’re using your car seat in the right way, make sure you read both your car seat’s manual and your car’s owner’s manual. There should be no more than 2.5 centimeters of movement from side to side or front to back.

Going forward-facing too soon

Turning the car seat around can feel like a big milestone – but have you turned your child too soon? Riding rear facing is recommended for as long as possible, so make sure your child has reached the highest weight or height restriction that your car seat manufacturer outlines in the user’s guide before rotating them to ride forward-facing.

Forgetting to remove heavy outerwear

It gets cold in Canada. Because of this, kids are usually outfitted in heavy jackets during the winter. But bulky outerwear can actually prevent the car seat harness from securing your child. Make sure you remove any heavy outerwear from your child before buckling them into the car seat, and then cover them with a blanket or coat once the seat is buckled securely.

We have many safe, family-friendly SUVs in stock at High River Toyota, like the 4Runner and RAV4. We’ll show you how to properly secure a child safety seat and what other features these models offer for protection.
