Toyota & Camry Edit
The Toyota Camry is a D-segment sedan that has been the choice of many Malaysian drivers for decades. However, its reputation has taken a toll due to it being considered an “uncle’s car”. Well, Toyota has refreshed the Toyota Camry with modern, aggressive styling, along with engaging driving characteristics thanks to its Toyota Global New Architecture (TNGA) platform. The Toyota Camry goes against sedans like the Honda Accord, Mazda 6, and Volkswagen Passat.
Toyota Camry Variants
In Malaysia, the Toyota Camry is only offered in one variant: the Camry 2.5V. Toyota has decided to simplify its offering in the segment due to the shrinking demand for D-segment sedans in the market.
