Toyota Camry, 2012: More spacious, more powerful

| |

Toyota has launched the seventh-generation Camry, the perennially best-selling sedan. The Japanese manufacturer hopes it will again fare well in the competitive car segment that includes top rivals Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata and Chevrolet Malibu.

If history repeats itself, the Camry will sell well. More than 15 million Camry models have sold worldwide since the car debuted in 1983.

The 2012 Camry features increased interior room and will offer improved driving and a quieter driver, according to the manufacturer.

"The all-new 2012 Camry blends an evolution of the car's values — such as comfort, efficiency, reliability and safety — with a more appealing design and engaging driving experience," said Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager.

All Camry models with the revised 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine now offer 178 horsepower, an increase of nine horsepower, and 170 lb.-ft. of peak torque. The vehicle is expected to achieve 25 mpg in city and 35 mpg in highway driving.
