Toyota has a new, sporty Camry V6 model. The Camry Touring Series has a sports handling pack, dual airbag SRS, ABS anti-skid brakes, rear spoiler, and range of interior and exterior enhancements. It also has a unique, locally developed handling calibration designed to provide an improved flat-ride feeling, reduced body roll, improved steering response, and enhanced rough-road stability and handling. Particular attention was paid to achieving improved handling without sacrificing ride comfort. The Touring Series suspension calibration includes Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) gas-pressurised dampers and stiffer springs (nine percent front and 20 percent rear), compared with Camry V6 Conquest. It has unique machine-finished alloy wheels and premium-performance Michelin 205/65 R15 Vivacy tyres. Interior improvements include a premium-grade six-speaker radio cassette with Digital Sound Processing, an integrated single CD player and a power antenna.
The Fujitsu Ten audio head unit comes from the luxury Vienta Grande. Camry Touring Series has a unique plush-knit seat fabric, leather-bound steering wheel, gear shift knob and handbrake lever. The dashboard has a new combination meter with “Touring” insignia on the speedometer, 5km/h speed increments and red needles (in lieu of white). It also has three individual rear head restraints, a separate clock, front cup holders with lids, driver’s vanity mirror with cover, rear ashtray and a glovebox lamp. Exterior enhancements include a rear spoiler with LED stop lamp.
In addition, Camry Touring Series has a body-coloured radiator grille and door handles, chrome “Touring” badge on the boot and chrome tailpipe extension. Camry Touring Series with five-speed manual transmission accelerates to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds. The four-speed overdrive automatic model achieves 0-100km/h in 8.7 seconds.
