Toyota Camry Review, For Sale, Colours, Models & Specs

It's one thing to be a victim of your own success, another thing entirely to be a victim of how you became successful.

Since its introduction to Australian roads in 1983, the Toyota Camry has been the safe choice if you're looking for a mid-size sedan, with prices starting at $30,990 for the Camry Ascent before toping out with the Camry SL Hybrid at $46,990.

With a reputation for reliability, the Camry has been the favourite of government fleets, taxi drivers and the sensible for more than three decades. Over the past few generations, Toyota has risen to the challenge from rivals like the Mazda6 and the Volkswagen Passat with sharper styling and handling.

Toyota Camry Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Camry here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What car should I buy to replace my 2017 Toyota Aurion?

    It’s unlikely that Toyota Australia would introduce the Crown down under. That car is more or less a Japanese domestic-market vehicle and is considered too narrow for Australian (and North American) tastes. But plenty of Aussies have imported their own Toyota Crowns in recent years and, in fact, there are businesses in many locations devoted to importing these vehicles and selling them here. With that in mind, there’s less risk in buying an imported Crown than in owning some parallel (unofficial) imports because there’s a whole industry out there involved in parts and service for the model.

    Perhaps another way to go would be to have the seats in your car re-padded to better suit your requirements. Maybe even a set of plush seat covers would provide the extra layer of comfort you’re after. If not, test drive the current-model Toyota Camry; it’s very Lexus-like in its refinement and comfort and, thanks to modern packaging, it’s huge inside. The hybrid version is excellent value and if more people test-drove the Camry, we reckon there’d be a few less SUVs sold.

  • What car should I buy for $5,000?

    The cars that are going up in price at a, frankly, frightening rate are cars that appeal to enthusiast drivers out there. Older Holdens and Fords and anything with a performance bent to it seem to be falling into this category. But since you don’t seem too fussed about what you buy, you can still find really good cars for under $5000. I’d start by looking at things like Toyota Camrys from the 1990s. These are good, solid, dependable cars and can be had comfortably within your budget. They’re not the most exciting cars to drive, but provided you find one that hasn’t already been worked to death, it should go for years.

  • Should I buy an electric car now or later?

    It’s definitely true that the march of new-car technology is making big changes to the cars we’re being offered almost on a monthly basis. So, if your current car is just three years old, it might be worth holding on to it and waiting for the next big thing to arrive in showrooms. Certainly, by trading-in at just three years, you’ll pretty much max out the depreciation you’ll suffer in financial terms.

    But by waiting, you might find that you can buy an electric vehicle and be able to tap into newer and better infrastructure that will be in place in another few years, rather than put up with the relatively sparse charging-station network currently in this country.

    At the moment, a hybrid or plug-in hybrid is a pretty good way to go, provided you use the vehicle mostly in an urban setting, rather than long-distance freeway journeys where the hybrid tech is less advantageous. A hybrid is not exactly future-proof, but it’s a good next step for a lot of Australian car-owners.

     

    As for what brand is best, the tech is getting better and better as time goes by, so it’s likely to be build date rather than brand that will determine the efficiency of the vehicle in question. That said, car owners can’t hold off forever when it comes to upgrading, so for the moment, a hybrid or plug-in hybrid is a logical next car. We’re particularly impressed by the current-model Toyota Camry which is good value to buy, a classy driving experience and offers hybrid fuel efficiency in the right environment. Such cars will be a lot of Australian families’ first hybrid, and rightly so.

  • Which pre-2010 Toyota Aurion model year is best?

    There is no bad XV40-series Aurion. As a V6-powered version of the ever-reliable Camry, it is a strong, smooth and powerful sedan with plenty of getup and go.

    Our only recommendation would be to ensure that all service intervals were carried out, as this 3.5-litre V6 engine is a sophisticated piece of engineering that needs proper maintenance. If the car has been neglected, walk away. Always buy on condition.  

    The AT-X was the base model, so it might be a little light-on in terms of luxury features, so go for one of the Prodigy, Sportivo/ZR6 or Touring versions.

    In 2011 the second-generation Aurion brought a few more safety and luxury features, so if you can stretch to that it is definitely an improvement, albeit one on an already impressive car.
