Despite no longer being built in Australia, the Toyota Camry remains one of the most popular mid-size sedans in the country, pairing space, comfort, and affordability to win over customers.
The Camry has been sold by Toyota since 1982 and is incredibly popular internationally. The name is derived from the Japanese word Kanmuri, which means crown.
Prices for the Camry start just below $30,000, with the more expensive models costing just over $40,000. There are both regular petrol and hybrid engines available, with the latter having an impressive claimed fuel consumption of just 4.5L/100km.
