Cebu City, Philippines (PressExposure) April 29, 2009 -- Looking for the best Toyota cars for sale philippines? When it comes to the best Toyota car models in terms of handling, luxury, and comfort, the Toyota Camry is considered as the top car for the job, even in today's market. Online free ads philippines sites have also reviewed the car as one of Toyota's finest creation for its comfort and style that brings forth a new generation of luxury cars.
Generations of Toyota Camry
For the East and Southeast Asian markets, high specification Camry models are seen as executive cars. Since the sixth generation XV30 model, the Camrys sold in these markets have sported revised front- and rear-end treatment. For the seventh generation XV40 series, the same was done, although the Australian-designed Toyota Aurion which is based on the seventh generation Camry was the donor model. The Aurion features revised front- and rear-end treatment and changes to the interior, but is fitted with the same powertrains. An up-branded luxury version of the Camry was sold in Japan as the Toyota Windom until 2006; the related Lexus ES shares major chassis and drivetrain components with the Camry.
In the Philippines, the fifth generation Camry was initially introduced with 2.0 and 2.4-liter engines, with four-speed automatics and no manual option. Compared to the US version, this had a different front end design (grille and headlights), as well as inner taillight garnishes. The facelifted version saw off the 2.0 and introduced the 3.0-liter V6 with five-speed automatic along with new colors and wheel design.
Toyota Camry of Different Nations
In the United States, the Camry has been the best selling car for nine of the last ten years starting in 1997, with the only exception being 2001. The Camry also sells very well in Australia, Canada, and a number of Asian markets. The Camry sold in the ASEANations is essentially a rebadged version of Toyota Aurion sold in Australia. However, the interior is carried over from the USDM/JDM Camrys, with some difference.
The Camry cars for sale philippines offers three grades: the base G, offering a l4 2.4 2AZ-FE engine producing 167 bhp (125 kW; 169 PS), mated to a 5-speed gate-type automatic transmission, has 2 SRS airbags, has fabric seats and has a foot-type parking brake. The 2.4 V is almost the same as the G variant, however, its has a 4-spoke steering wheel with wood grain, 2 SRS airbags, and has a leather-wrapped wood grain with chrome shift lever and knob.
Despite its success, it has been criticized for less sporty handling, due to comfort-tuned suspensions in most models. It has not sold as well in Europe, where sales ended in 2004, and the Avensis became the flagship model in 2002.
