Grab the keys to a brand new Toyota Camry, and you’re going to be sorted for years to come. A growing family, the need for extra power and big car safety are all legit reasons for wanting to move up from your faithful Yaris or Corolla. Toyota makes the car exchange simple and easy, and with a New Vehicle Warranty that expires three years from the date of first delivery or 100000 km – whichever occurs first – the magical new car experience is very painless.
Coasting along the highway in a new Toyota Camry is also an effortless experience. The 4.8-metre long five-seater is easy to drive; all of the family who are old enough to hold a drivers license are going to enjoy the Camry’s abilities. Tremendous ride and handling prowess enables the big sedan to remain un-phased over any common road surface. Its easy-to-live-with electronic power steering is well weighted and very accurate, ensuring that the slightly hesitant new driver is not going to feel out of their depth for very long. The 2012 Toyota Camry feels safe and, without difficulty, provides the perfect blend of modern safety and comfort features to make a long journey relaxed and pleasurable. Brilliant Toyota technology gives the car plenty of get-up-and-go from modest output figures.
All the buttons and switchgear sit in the right place, so ergonomically the Camry is first rate. You’ll locate a cosy position behind the steering wheel as the unit is tilt and telescopic in its adjustment. Cruise control, a trip computer, electrically adjustable door mirrors, headlight control with a dusk sensor, a very clear analogue style speedometer and tachometer, and a gear position indicator may seem basic requirements but they are all there as standard items on the Toyota Camry Altise. Air conditioning with a rear air outlet, power windows in the front and rear, and vanity mirrors for the front passenger and driver are also standard, thoughtful features that equip the base Altise model.
Note that the Toyota Camry Altise also has a lovely audio system which comes with grunty six-speaker sound clarity. You’ll even think you’re in a live concert with the clear, surround-sound ability. Remote audio controls are located on the steering wheel.
Bluetooth with a wireless connection gives even the Toyota Camry Altise model the nod for a great executive car. And when you combine a strong 133 kW, DOHC petrol engine with a six-speed automatic gearbox, and ABS, EBD, BA, TRC and VSC as standard active safety features, you have yourself the ideal driver’s car that will travel effortlessly between states and cities day-in, day-out with ease.
Just a little more on safety: a front airbag each for the driver and passenger, side airbags for the front occupants, a side curtain airbag in the front and rear, knee airbag for the driver, pre-tensioning seatbelts with load limiters and height adjustment for the front occupants and three-point seatbelts for all the rear seat passengers come as standard items.
Things like full leather seating, trim with a carbon fibre appearance, electronic seat adjustment, zoned climate control and a moon roof grace the higher equipped Toyota Camry models.
