    Make : Toyota
    Model : Camry


    A success in America but a damp squib in India, the fully imported and completely built-up Toyota Camry failed to make an impact here because of its exorbitant price. But there is no denying that it was one of the best cars to be chauffeur-driven in.

    Unlike the old Camry however, the new one is assembled at Toyota’s Bidadi facility and hence, attracts lower duties. It’s surprising then that Toyota has chosen not to pass this advantage onto its customers. The Camry remains one of the most expensive cars in its class.

    There is no diesel engine on offer, which puts the Camry at a natural disadvantage. And, at Rs 23.8 lakh for this 2.5 G version, it is Rs 2.3 lakh more expensive than its next rival, the Skoda Superb. However, Toyota seems confident about the Camry’s appeal, what with the new engine, revamped looks and overhauled interiors and equipment. But is it worth the asking price?
