About Toyota Camry
Toyota introduced the Camry XV30 series in September 2001 for the 2002 model year as a bigger sedan without a station wagon for the first time. The wagon’s decline was brought about by the shift in consumer preferences toward minivans and crossover SUVs.
For the first time since the V30 and XV10, Toyota completely overhauled this series. Toyota shortened the XV30 production development stage to 26 months, down from 36 months with the XV20, thanks to efficiency benefits such as enhanced computerization and by having the XV30 ride on the K platform debuted with the Toyota Highlander (XU20) in 2000. As a result, Toyota claims that the XV30 was 30 percent less expensive to design and develop than its predecessor. The XV30 also had more parts than the XV20, although it didn’t cost any more to make.
The Camry Solara stayed on the XV20 series chassis until the 2003 model year, with only minor stylistic changes to the front and back ends. The Solara, on the other hand, received the same 2.4-liter 2AZ-FE I4 engine as the Camry sedan. A 115 kW (154 hp) 2.4-liter inline-four, a 142 kW (190 hp) 3.0-liter V6, and a 157 kW (210 horsepower) 3.3-liter version of the same were available in the United States. Only the Camry’s sportier “SE” model had the 3.3-liter engine.
The Asian “prestige” Camry featured a different characteristic appearance than the international version with a less conservative look (designed by Hiroyuki Metsugi, approved 1999), with more chrome, wider headlamps and tail lamps, and an overall greater emphasis on its breadth.
The distinction between the “ordinary” Camry sold abroad (including Japan) and the “prestige” Camry offered in the rest of Asia was even more pronounced with this generation of Camry. The Toyota Aurion was a four-cylinder Camry that was sold alongside the V6-engined premium Camry in Oceania and the Middle East. The normal Camry was also rebadged as the Daihatsu Altis model, which sold alongside the Camry in Japan between 2006 and 2010. The only cosmetic difference between the Daihatsu and the Toyota was the badging.
The XV40 Camry was debuted alongside a hybrid variant during the 2006 North American International Auto Show, and went on sale in March 2006 for the 2007 model year.
