New Camry set to make waves (again)

If you’ve always thought that the Toyota Camry looked like something your soft-spoken dad would drive, maybe you’d like to take a look at the all-new, 2007 Camry and the Camry Hybrid – both unveiled by Toyota at the 2006 American International Auto Show in Detroit. Then maybe, just maybe, you’ll change your mind. The Camry after all, is America’s bestselling car – and has, over the years, created the benchmark for sedans in terms of comfort, performance and intelligent design.

According to Toyota officials, the new Camry is more sophisticated than its predecessors, with rounder lines and more muscular details, along with luxury features that customers demand. This includes a lower roof line and a wider stance, as well as zoned climate controls, an ionizer to improve interior air quality and even an upholstery fabric that’s “gentle on the skin”.

If you want to do more than just giving your current ride a facelift with new auto parts like grilles, hubcaps or spoilers from Auto Parts Corner, you may want to check out these new Camry specs:
