For big-sell­ing Camry

Alpine Observer - - Motor Guide -

The four-cylin­der en­gine is quiet, re­fined and re­spon­sive with more than enough per­for­mance for most buy­ers. For those look­ing for ex­tra the V6 is on of­fer.

Steer­ing is well weighted and pro­vides more driver feed­back than be­fore. Ride com­fort is very good, even on coarse-chip and cor­ru­gated sur­faces. Noise lev­els are well sup­pressed and will make for re­fined long dis­tance cruis­ing.

Fuel con­sump­tion dur­ing our week-long test av­er­aged out at 9.2 litres per 100 kilo­me­tres, around the typ­i­cal 10 per cent mar­gin above Toy­ota’s fac­tory tested num­ber.

Toy­ota has clearly ig­nored the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” adage with its de­ci­sion to add a more sporty di­men­sion to Camry.

The sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments in both the looks and per­for­mance of new Camry are sure to ap­peal to the keen pri­vate buyer who wants a com­fort­able com­muter that can be taken for some fun week­end driv­ing.
