ToyotaPH launches the All-New Camry
Toyota Motor Philippines starts the holiday season with a much-anticipated Full Model Change of its flagship midsize sedan, the All-New Toyota Camry. Masterfully crafted under the tenets of Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), the All-New Camry exudes extraordinary from all vantage points imaginable: an overhauled exterior geared towards “Sensual-Smart Confidence”, an ergonomic interior which prioritizes both driver and passenger comfort, and an unmatched array of performance and safety features.
With over 19 million units sold worldwide across seven generations since its introduction in 1983, the All-New Camry is aptly dubbed the “King of Sedans,” whose enduring success can only be matched by Toyota’s global vision of ever-better cars.
Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA)
TNGA is built upon two pillars—Core Strength and Emphasized Personality—both of which are present in the design and engineering of the All-New Camry. The new Toyota approach in making ever-better cars manifests in the eighth generation model by enhancing its agility, stability, and visibility. A lower center of gravity combined with a new suspension system results in the All-New Camry’s sharper response and handling. The strengthened ring structures around its body frame makes the vehicle more stable and sturdy, especially at high speeds on undulating roads. By reducing the thickness of its instrument panels and lowering the hood, cowl, and beltline, the All-New Camry’s forward field of view is greatly increased to make driving an extrasensory pleasure.
On the outside, the All-New Camry’s new styling reflects the design team’s philosophy of harmonizing a bold and distinctive look that separates the model from its competition in the midsize sedan segment. Chief Designer Akira Kubota calls this “Sensual-Smart Confidence”—an approach which seamlessly melds the athletic accents in the sheet metal with a sleek and modern body shape— creating an emotional design.
At first glance, the two-piece front grille and the new character lines set the tone for the All-New Camry’s exterior. Its low and wide stance conveys a more relaxed feel, accentuated further by a sweeping cabin and 18” alloy wheels. The LED headlamps and Daytime Running Lights are positioned perfectly on the prow, equally matched by LED tail lights, dual exhaust pipes, and clearance sonar at the rear. These elements combine to form a tapered, three-dimensional exterior that represents the eighth generation model’s dynamic spirit.
Sculpted with the finest degree of craftsmanship, the All-New Camry’s roomy interior is aligned with the “Sensual-Smart Confidence” design concept, leading to a luxurious cabin nothing short of class. All seats are padded and clad in smooth genuine leather, and provide ample legroom for everyone. Both driver and passenger comfort are taken into consideration, as the model features a 3-zone automatic Climate Control, with Speed Sensing power door locks and 1-Touch power windows. The Illuminated Entry System also welcomes all occupants into the sumptuous interior with tasteful, high-grade but indirect illumination. Using upscale materials and rich textures, the All-New Camry is able to create a spaciously cozy environment that fuses form with function.
Enjoy a swifter ingress as the premium sedan comes with Smart Entry and a Push Start System that has key-linked memory: automatically adjusting the driver’s seat and outside mirrors according to set preference. Inside the cockpit, the driver cruises with ease through an engaging dashboard that has a 7” Multi-Information Display and the much-coveted Heads-Up Display technology. At the back, chauffeured executives can relax in premium luxury as the rear seats come equipped with butterfly-type headrests, power recline, and a Capacitive Touch Panel that controls the air-conditioning and sunshade of the All-New Camry.
Performance and Features
Propelled by the robust and fuel-efficient 2.5 L Dual VVT-i engine, the All-New Camry offers a smooth driving experience like no other. The 6-Speed Automatic Transmission gives freedom of choice through Drive Mode Select, letting you cruise between Sport and Eco modes. The All-New Camry also assists the driver in higher speeds by adding the Highly Responsive Upshift Control and Blipping Downshift Control, both activated in S mode to allow for extremely fast shifting without reducing engine braking and lowering shock. A floor-mounted pedal moves in coordination with the driver for more natural feedback and enhanced control of the vehicle.
The All-New Camry also scored a definitive 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating, making it one of the safest passenger cars in the market. Aside from its 7 strategically-placed airbags, the eighth generation model uses an Electronic Parking Brake. All variants are equipped with Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, and Anti-Lock Brake System.
