Toyota NZ reveals 2012 Camry range

Toyota has revealed the all-new seventh generation Camry.  The New Zealand Camry range will feature three models including two new unique model variants named Atara.

The new Toyota Camry debuts a refreshed design with more interior space, retuned driving dynamics and a quieter ride.  Every exterior body panel on Camry is new.

A new 2.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine delivers a 10 per cent increase in power and better fuel economy than the current model’s 2.4 litre petrol engine. The 2012 Camry will now be fitted with a six speed automatic transmission – replacing the current generation’s five-speed gearbox.

Toyota New Zealand General Manager of Sales and Operations, Steve Prangnell said “The new Camry, Atara and a new Camry Hybrid will arrive together in New Zealand dealerships in March 2012.”

“Camry is set to shake up its segment in New Zealand.  The next generation car will do everything better.” Mr Prangnell said, “The introduction of the Atara name adds an extra dimension to the Camry brand, it will appear on the Camry models targeted at private buyers and the user-chooser segment of the fleet market.”

“Atara puts Camry in a great position to lead its segment with overall specification, performance, quality and value – all very important for New Zealand motorists,” he said. “We’ve been selling Camry here for nearly 25 years and have sold over 45,000 cars. We’re proud of Camry’s popularity in New Zealand, but we’re looking forward to introducing Kiwis to the Atara – we’re hopeful it will attract a whole new set of customers to the Camry brand.”

All new Camry models will be equipped with vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution.   Toyota New Zealand expects a strong five-star ANCAP rating.

Camry and Atara sedans for the New Zealand market will be built at the company’s manufacturing plant in Melbourne, Australia.

Expect more info on the NZ-Spec 2012 Camry pricing and specifications soon.
