As we move closer towards the middle of the year, the end of Toyota’s manufacturing era in Australia draws closer.
With the factory set to complete production of the last locally manufactured Camry and Aurion models in Q4 2017, we look ahead to what this means for the up and coming imported Camry.
The first sedan to be built on Toyota’s New Generation Architechture (TNGA), this Camry will be better than ever before.
The Camry will be offered with 3 engine options: 4 cylinder petrol, petrol-electric hybrid and 6 cylinder petrol.
The key benefits of TNGA are improved dynamics, handling and ride comfort from the new Camry platform’s lower centre of gravity, higher torsional rigidity and fully independent rear suspension.
Expect and improvement in safety features and technology as well.
Improved technology and features include an 8-inch audio display screen, 7-inch colour multi-information display, 10-inch colour head-up display and an electronic park brake instead of the foot-operated pedal.
In Camry’s 34-year history in Australia, sales have surpassed 900,000 cars including 690,000 four-cylinder petrol models, 42,000 hybrids and 169,000 V6 variants.
Camry has been Australia’s best-selling mid-size car for each of the past 23 years.
