2012 Toyota Camry | Long term Report | Part 1

Posted on May 16, 2012 by

I must admit, the long term Camry that came in last week hasn’t seen much action. The amount of traveling and the constant flow of test cars have barely allowed me to drive it for more than a few hundred kilometres.

However, all that is about to change. Starting this week, the Camry has its work cut out. A few trips to the outskirts during the week and trip to the capital will definitely add over 700 kilometres on the clock and I’m looking forward to spending time in one of the highest selling cars of all time.

Toyota has handed us the Camry SE variant that comes loaded with almost all the top of the line features. Having test driven the new Camry a couple of months ago, we were really impressed with the car and its build quality. I’m not particularly fond of the new design and I still thing its predecessor looks better and more up-market. The Sport variant doesn’t get a sunroof and navigation but thats something I can live without.

Even though I have driven it for over 300kms the fuel needle has barely moved. I have known the Camry to be fuel efficient but never lived with one to actually experience its frugality. However, the reason why it’s a runaway success for Toyota is beginning to dawn on me. It’s affordable, feature packed and fuel efficient.

Stay tuned for weekly updates on the all-new 2012 Camry as it becomes an important part of my life for the next two months.
