Model in Focus: The Toyota CamryBy marian on June 26th, 2015
The automotive industry is a highly-competitive business, and Toyota didn’t get to the top of the food chain by fluke. This brand has shattered sales records all over the world , and here in the Philippines, our masterpieces like the Toyota Vios have made us one of the top choices for buyers everywhere in the country.
If you’re looking to replace your vehicle with a more badass model, it’s best to know the best options available on the market. And in this edition of “Model in Focus”, we’ll discuss the Toyota Camry and pinpoint each glorious feature that makes this creation worthy of the “Toyota” brand.
First introduced in 1982, the Toyota Camry became the manufacturer’s second product to be sold internationally, right after the Corolla. Judging by the etymology behind the name, one could conclude that the Camry is amongst Toyota’s most valued designs. The word “Camry” is a phonetic transcription of the Japanese word for crown (kanmuri), making the model only the fourth of its kind whose name was derived from this particular word.
The first three models to receive this honor is 1955’s Toyota Crown, 1957’s Toyota Corona, and 1966’s Toyota Corolla, with “Corolla” being the Latin word for “crown”. Disregarding the year 2001, the Toyota Camry has been the best-selling passenger car in the United States from 1997 up to 2013.
The sexiest cars that have ever graced the streets are beautiful both on the inside and outside. And once you step foot inside the 2015 version of the Camry, you’re gonna embrace comfort, convenience, power, and innovation in every drive. For starters, long trips won’t be a problem for the guy or gal behind the electric steering wheel since the driver seat is height adjustable and equipped with power adjustable lumbar support.
Those with trouble parking can say goodbye to their frustrations as they utilize the rear view camera. And for those who fancy themselves a road trip every now and then, you’ll enjoy maximum entertainment with the vehicle’s six speakers topped off with a speed-sensitive volume control. Your passengers will have no choice but to sing-a-long to the awesome acoustics.

More than anything, Toyota invests in components that promote the safety of the driver, passengers, pedestrians, and even the car’s most vital parts.

Even if you get into any minor collisions, the necessary tools will instantly be available since the Camry is already equipped with a First Aid Kit and an Emergency Assistance Kit.
