​Having always been a community-oriented company, West Kendall Toyota has now partnered with the Live Like Bella® Childhood Cancer Foundation. West Kendall Toyota, part of the Bean Automotive Group, recently made a generous donation to the nonprofit organization, one of the largest contributions to date. This now ensures continuous support of Live Like Bella’s mission: to fund innovative childhood cancer research, provide financial support to families whose child is undergoing treatment, and assist families who have lost a child to cancer with memorial expenses.

“To see so much courage in children, the children of our future, is truly inspiring,” says Bean Automotive Group Dealer Principal Lori Bean. “I am honored to be working with Live Like Bella to promote their well-being.” The agreement makes Bean the prime sponsor of Bella’s annual events, including the fifth annual Bella’s Ball in September, the Live Like Bella Superhero 5K in February of 2019, and an array of events throughout the year supporting children battling cancer.

“Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children and approximately 13,500 children in the United States alone are diagnosed with cancer a year,” said Nicole de Lara Puente, CEO of the Live Like Bella Childhood Cancer Foundation. “We are humbled by Bean Automotive Group’s trust in our ability to support the childhood cancer community. It is thanks to their generous support that we are able to help ensure that childhood cancer becomes a curable and treatable disease,” she added.

As part of the partnership, West Kendall Toyota has taken the additional step of placing a large treasure chest to serve as a collection point for gift cards from associates, customers and the public. The gift cards will help families dealing with illness to offset the costs of groceries, gas, and even parking.


Founded in 1973 by Gerald Bean, Bean Automotive owns and operates four area car dealerships: Lexus of KendallWest Kendall ToyotaLexus of West Kendall, and Kendall Toyota. The company also runs the Kendall Collision Center. The company strives to deliver on every customer’s expectation, one customer at a time. Their vision is to be the leading automotive group within the industry, serving customers, associates and communities.

Headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida, Live Like Bella was founded in June 2013 in memory of Bella Rodriguez-Torres, who passed away at the tender age of 10 from Rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. In her six-year battle she inspired the world to #LiveLikeBella and the foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for pediatric cancer by funding innovative pediatric cancer research. The Foundation also provides support for families with children currently in treatment and assists families who have lost a child to cancer with funeral or headstone expenses. To date, the foundation has served families in 46 states and 12 countries. For more information, visit www.LiveLikeBella.org.

Stay safe this Halloween with West Kendall Toyota

By Jenise | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, October 20th, 2017 at 3:51 PM

With costumes, parties, and of course trick-or-treating, Halloween is one of our favorite holidays to celebrate. And with only a few days until the 31st, we thought we’d share with you some basic safety tips to ensure you and your family have a fun and safe Halloween outing.

Use bright and reflective colors where possible.

Get creative with costumes and try and decorate them with reflective tape or stickers to help your kids be seen while trick or treating. You can also try and encourage them to dress up in costumes that requires lighter colors. Batman is super fun, but he’s also super dark. Maybe he’ll look better with a light saber? Or some nifty glow in the dark taping? You get the idea…

Take it slow and mind your surroundings.

Obviously there will be a ton of young trick-or-treaters roaming the neighborhood on Halloween eve, but they’ll also be roaming the streets too. And with various costumes and outfits that can often make it hard to see them, it’s best to take it slow and drive extra carefully around your neighborhood. And while you’re at it, maybe even drive around with some tasty treats to help further the festivities.

Trick Or treat with Toyota.

Speaking of treats, Toyota offers a ton of them with advanced safety features that come standard on more than 15 Toyota vehicles and counting.  We’re talking Lane Departure Alert and even a Pre-Collision System (PCS)1 with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)2 that helps mitigate or avoid a potential collision.

Have fun and stay safe this Halloween with West Kendall Toyota!

The 2018 Toyota Camry from West Kendall Toyota: A Better Driving Experience- From the Ground Up

By rallen | Posted in Camry on Friday, June 30th, 2017 at 8:38 PM

The Toyota Camry has been the flagship vehicle of the Japanese automotive titan since its debut in 1982, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why the Camry has been the #1 best-selling car in America for the past 15 years. A prime combination of practicality, technology, performance, and style, the Toyota Camry has it all. Now, with the release of the 8th generation Camry in the 2018 Toyota lineup, the innovations of Toyota New Global Architecture put the 2018 Camry in a class of its own. The all-new 2018 Toyota Camry is the next step in automotive engineering, and West Kendall Toyota in Miami, FL wants to put you in the driver’s seat.

Sport Performance Meets Camry Practicality

The engineers at Toyota knew exactly what they were doing when they redesigned the 2018 Camry, working from the core of the vehicle, outward. Starting with a more rigid, high-strength chassis, the Camry is stiffer and therefore incredibly responsive. The wheel base is wider and lower-set, giving the car a low center of gravity, and the height of the hood and roof have also been reduced to better hug the road. These features, combined with a double-wishbone rear suspension system, vastly improve the vehicle dynamics and allow the automobile to feel like an aggressively athletic extension of the driver.

The innovation doesn’t stop at agility; the 2018 Toyota Camry features three state-of-the-art powertrains to choose from, depending on your vehicle preference. These engines include: a 3.5 Liter V6 with D4-S fuel injection, a 2.5 Liter 4 cylinder with dynamic force, and the next-generation Toyota Hybrid System II; all of which offer pulse-quickening torque and the best-in-class fuel economy consumers have come to expect from Toyota. This sporty performance is aesthetically conveyed via a menacing quad-exhaust in the rear, stylish body lines on the front and rear fenders, and available 19-inch wheels, leaving the Camry with show-stopping curb appeal.

The Most Technologically Advanced Camry to Date

The intuitive interior of the 2018 Toyota Camry is driver-focused and highly advanced, improving the safety and enhancing the driver experience. The cowls are lowered, and the driver seat is slightly raised, to allow better outward visibility. There are also three displays in the Camry, all specifically angled towards the driver: a 7-inch multi-display for the gauges, an 8-inch control panel for the vehicle’s infotainment system, and an available 10-inch heads-up display projected onto the windshield on the driver’s side. The 2018 Toyota Camry also now comes with Toyota Safety Sense as a standard feature. This cutting-edge safety package includes: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

The 2018 Toyota Camry is the new industry standard for the modern sedan. With seemingly endless innovation and technology packed into such a beautiful vehicle, there’s only one thing left to do- come in to West Kendall Toyota to get your Camry today!
