Importing Camry rather than producing locally won't dent image, company suggests

The fact that the new 2018 Toyota Camry will be imported from Japan rather than built in Australia like the outgoing model should not have a great impact on sales, which nevertheless are expected to decline in response to the car’s push upmarket. The 2018 Toyota Camry - generation number eight - is a new-from-the-ground-up model with different architecture and fully revised designs outside and in...

2018 Toyota Camry: What's changed

The phrase 'new Toyota Camry' wouldn't typically elicit much enthusiasm, but the company has pulled out a lot of stops to make the eighth-generation model a big step forward. The corporation's head Akio Toyoda has demanded that all  Toyota product moving forwards has at least a hint of driving dynamism, and here it's coupled to a more upmarket cabin and a comparatively daring exterior...

Toyota Camry sales to plummet, hybrid targets lion's share

The new-generation Toyota Camry is billed as a significant step away from tradition, designed to be sold on looks, tech and dynamics as much as comfort, reliability and value. This shift — along with the possible subtext of higher pricing, and the continued decline in mid-sized car sales across the board in favour of SUVs — means Toyota Australia expects a “dramatic” sales reduction, albeit one that should keep it market leader...

2018 Toyota Camry to feature Linux-based infotainment system in the US

Toyota Fengchao Fun concept previews Asian Camry

The Toyota Fengchao Fun concept has been unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai motor show, and probably points the way to the look of the China and Asian market Camry.

At the front and rear, the concept has unique styling, with cleaner and sharper details than the already unveiled North American Camry...

Mercedes-Benz C-Class 'outsells' Camry

In what could be seen as a sign of things to come, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class was the nation’s top-selling mid-sized vehicle in January. The German luxury car — many of which are actually made in South Africa — outsold the locally made fleet-favourite, Toyota’s Camry, 651 units to 580. The Camry’s 580 figure compares to 4850 in December...

Toyota confirms October 3 end for Australian production, Holden the last to go

Toyota, Australia’s biggest-volume car-maker and exporter, has announced the date when it will close its Camry and Aurion factory in the western Melbourne suburb of Altona. The date has been confirmed as October 3 this year, which is in line with expectations.

2018 Toyota Camry V6 will be the end of the road for Aurion

When Toyota announced in early 2014 that it would end Australian production in late 2017, it came with confirmation that the company intended to continue offering the Camry and Aurion nameplates as part of its completely imported line-up. Much can change in three years, however, and the sales and marketing chief of Toyota Australia has now revealed the Camry V6 shown in Detroit today will come to our market...
