The benchmark Toyota Camry sedan continues its reputation of safety, reliability, and quality while offering fuel efficiency, space, and power.
The Camry is a front-wheel drive, five-passenger, four-door sedan featuring four trims: Base, LE, SE, and XLE. A new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission are standard; a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shifting is optional. LE, SE, and XLE models are available with a 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shifting. Stability and traction control, six-airbags, and tire pressure monitor are standard.
The 2010 Toyota Camry receives interior and exterior redesign, a new 2.5-liter engine, and six-speed manual transmission. Vehicle stability control is now standard on all trims.
ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. This increases the vehicles ability to turn while braking.
Stability control automatically senses when the vehicles handling limits have been exceeded and reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle.
Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been designed to protect the head during a frontal crash.
Side impact airbags
Side impact airbags for the front seats have been designed to protect the torso during a side impact collision.
Overhead airbags are used to protect the occupant's heads in the event of a side collision or rollover.
Knee airbags help to protect the occupants lower extremities from serious injury in the event of an accident.
Seatbelt pretensioners automatically tighten seatbelts to place the occupant in the optimal seating position during a collision.
The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that will prevent the engine from starting if the correct original manufacturer key is not used.
IIHS Frontal Offset Crash Test
IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal, or poor based on performance in high-speed front and side crash tests plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts.
Toyota Camry Hybrid – Possibly China bound at last
Source: China Car Times
The Toyota Prius is not a common site in China, possibly due to its high price and a general populace that is more interested in buying a car that gives more bang for your buck rather than less bang for your buck, but more green credentials. Even producing the Toyota Prius in China via the FAW JV hasn’t given the car much of a price cut, the Honda Civic hybrid for example, is made in Japan and imported into China yet they cost roughly the same price.
Toyota do not seemed to be fazed by the lack of sales action for the Prius, and possibly plan on bringing the Toyota Camry Hybrid to China soon, as one has been spotted in China:
The US market has had the hybrid Camry since 2006, but it will be the first time that China has received one, although various Lexus hybrid models are available in China to date.
