2012 Toyota Camry | new car review

Posted on Mar 11, 2012 by


Toyota follows the practice of building two Camry on one platform. That means the 2012 Camry is built on the same platform as the outgoing version and receives a heavy dose of cosmetic changes and a bit of tweaking under the skin. The body is constructed using a lighter yet stronger material and the new Camry boasts of a significant weight reduction. Redesigned A and B pillars lend an aura of roominess to the cabin and it is quite noticeable once you are in the car. Toyota has done a good job in expanding interior space, which has been a forte of the 2012 Camry. Every variant of the 2012 Camry gets the same 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces a healthy 178bhp and 230Nm of torque. The power output feels adequate for this car. The Camry, like its predecessor, gets a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Shift times are not the quickest and at those rare occasions, when you are faced with a challenge of overtaking a container truck, you feel that downshift should have been quicker. Four variants will share the showroom floor in the UAE with prices starting from AED 86,000 to AED 101,000. The base version Camry comes with the usual 15-inch pressed steel wheels, a six speaker audio system with AUX/iPOD/USB connection and dual airbags. As you go higher up you get cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, reversing camera and 16-inch alloy wheels in the car. Top of the line 2012 also gets in-built navigation which is pretty accurate and up-to-date. Prices S: AED 86,000 SE: AED 93,000 SE+: AED 101,000 Sport: AED 102,000 Specification Engine: 2.5-litre 4 cylinder; 178bhp, 230Nm
