2010 Toyota Camry | new car review

Posted on Jul 1, 2010 by









The Camry is one of the best-selling and most recognisable sedans in the Middle East, not least because of its place on the fleets of numerous taxi companies.

It is seen as a smart buy given ’s reputation for quality and its price. The car has been given a facelift for the 2010 model year, feature LED tail lights, new headlights and a tweaked front end.

Sadly the more powerful engines that accompanied the unveil of the refreshed look in the US don’t make it to the region. Therefore, power still comes from the 2.4-litre, four-cylinder engine that makes 157bhp through either a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic, depending on the grade that you buy. Those looking for more power might be interested in the V6-powered Aurion, which is based on the Camry.

Speaking of grades, three versions of the Camry are available in the Middle East. The entry-level GL includes a radio cassette player for all you fans of music from the 80s (a CD player is available as an option), as well as power windows, keyless entry and airbags for the driver and front seat passenger.

Splash out on the mid-level GLX model and you’ll get a CD player as standard, with MP3 playing capabilities either by CD or through the auxiliary socket. Bluetooth phone connectivity is also include, as are front fog lamps, alloy wheels and cruise control. A six CD changer and sunroof are available as an option.

The top-level SE Camry includes special “sport” headlights, as well as front and rear parking sensors and a spoiler.
