All New Toyota Camry

Fri, 31 Aug 2001
An all new Toyota Camry makes its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 11th September and reaches the UK in November.

America's favourite car now has more interior room, similar refinement and comfort and the option of two engines: a 2.4 litre VVT-i which offers best in class fuel consumption of 32.8mpg on the combined cycle, or a 3.0 litre V6 auto with a top speed of 140mph and a 0-60 of 8.9 seconds.

The design is completely new and builds on the model's attributes of class-leading comfort and refinement. The new car will also offer buyers a carefully engineered balance of ride, comfort and performance. Inside is almost 7 per cent more interior space, higher levels of interior quality and executive class features. Low noise levels and a world-class safety system complete the customer cosseting package.

The 2.4 litre engine uses Toyota's Variable Valve Timing-intelligent (VVT-i) technology to boost low speed torque and improve fuel consumption. Top speed is 130mph and acceleration fro 0-60 takes
9.2 seconds for the manual version. The Camry 2.4 leads its segment in terms of fuel consumption, with an excellent 32.8mpg on the European combined cycle. Top speed of the 3.0-litre V6 automatic is 140mph and 0-60 mph takes 8.9 seconds. Fuel consumption is 25.7mpg on the European combined cycle. The 2.4 engine comes with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic gearbox. The 3.0-litre engine is available with an automatic gearbox only.

Dual stage SRS airbags are standard equipment for driver and passenger, as are side-airbags. SRS curtain shield airbags help protect the heads of both front and rear seat passengers. The brake system offers ABS, electronic brake force distribution and brake assist as standard features. 3-point seatbelts are provided for all occupants. The front seats come with pre-tensioners and force-limiters, the rear seats offer ISO-FIX mountings for safer installation of child seats.

Equipment levels include a full multi-information display, rain-sensitive automatic windscreen wipers and automatic climate control, amongst many other features.

UK Prices and specification will be confirmed closer to the on sale date.
