Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation has recently launched the New Camry, further re-invigorating the brand's flagship executive sedan.

First shown at the 2009 North American International Auto Show, the local introduction of Toyota's most successful high-end brand is much anticipated. The changes in the new Camry include a new fascia with a refreshed design for the front bumper, new radiator grille and matching headlamps, as well as new rear combination lamps.

Inside, the speedometer design is now more luxurious, while an auxiliary input system for external audio sources is added. Apart from the four original shades of white pearl, silver metallic, black mica and beige metallic, an additional grey metallic shade makes the color line-up more diverse.

"The Camry has been a source of pride for Toyota for many years since it arrived in the Philippines. True to its nature, the Camry exemplified true leadership as it constantly dominates the medium passenger / executive sedan segment. We are confident that the 2010 Camry will further reinforce Toyota's image in terms of premium luxury, advanced technology, and uncompromising power in a mid-size sedan." expressed Raymond Rodriguez, First Vice President for Vehicle Sales Operations.

The new Camry will retain its three variants-but the mid-grade 2.4V will now adapt the push start and smart entry system that previously distinguished the top-of-the-line 3.5Q V6 variant. Prices range from Php 1,451,000 for the base variant 2.4G automatic transmission, Php 1,681,000 for the mid-grade 2.4V, and Php 2,010,000 for the 3.5Q V6 dual VVT-I variant.
