New Toyota Camry - 2007

The Malaysian, New Toyota Camry was recently launched into the market, fully imported from Thailand. The New Model looks bolder, sophisticated and much more aggressive than its predecessors. This time around it doesn't look that conservative in the eyes of the users. Currently its taking the bulk of the market share amongst it's competitors.

I personally feel, the New Camry is a class above the rest. It combines both modern elements and high end finishing. After years of being in the Motor Industry, i can safely say that the New Camry is a vehicle that sets a new global standard.

The first thing you would notice in this sixth generation Camry would be it's stylish and balanced design. Interiors are covered with leather and wood grain trims gives you the sense of prestige(2.0G & 2.4V). Seating inside one of this units will give anyone the feeling of 'spaciousness' due to its long cabin. Feedback from the people I've met also say that they are happy that the New Camry features an all new, plasma cluster air-conditioning system (provides refreshing ions, reduces airborne micro organisms, contaminants and odour particles) with Dual control ability (one temperature for the driver and another temperature for the front passenger) & what more, they get to control all this together with the Audio and Multi Info Display (MID) all at the touch of a button on the steering wheel. Now that is what we call, Innovations of the future.

Even during the earlier models, Camry's usually do very well, in terms of their sale. I would think it's mainly due to it's reliable engines. The New Camry currently comes with two engines, the first one being the 2.0 litre 1AZ-FE and the other being the 2.4 litre 2AZ-FE. Both are 4 cylinder DOHC 16valve engines. It also features the ever so popular Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence which gives the car that vroom power. It is also noted that power and torque for both the engines are amongst the best in its class.

Driving this 'dream machine' is such a pleasurable experience. Currently the New 2.4V Camry comes fitted with a new 5 speed Super ECT automatic transmission, it also gives the driver the option of manual sequential shifts when required. However the 2.0E & G has only a 4 speed Super ECT automatic transmission in them.

Needless to say about Toyota's safety standards, this car comes fitted with the highest level of Active and Passive safety needed in a car.

So try not to be the average Joe when you buy that new car, the accessory shop is where they would go. Remember when you go out shopping for all those extra accessory gadgets, check your warranty first, as not to infringe them. All Toyota vehicles as I know, come with a 3 year or 100,000km (whichever comes first) warranty.

Driving this car around town will definitely get you the looks, if you know what i mean...

Parting words from me, if money is not an obstacle, get this Baby!
