Toyota Camry All New Model Launched With 3,500 Bookings Done
UMW Toyota Motor launched the All-New Toyota Camry at Sepang today. The All-New Toyota Camry has come a long way since it was first launched in 1994. Over the years, the Toyota Camry has built a strong reputation for its quality, durability, reliability, and stylish designs. According to En. Ismet Suki, President of UMW Toyota Motor, “To date, we have sold more than 96,000 units of Toyota Camry in Malaysia, thus cementing its position as the most preferred choice of vehicle. It has become the best-selling model in the medium PC segment in Malaysia since 2006 with a market share of 47%.”
The All-New Toyota Camry is assembled locally at UMW Toyota Motor’s manufacturing facility, Assembly Services Sdn Bhd (ASSB) in Shah Alam. This development is in line with the company’s and Toyota Motor Corporation Japan’s objectives to support the Malaysian government’s efforts towards promoting localization in the Malaysian automotive industry.
Several changes have been made to the exterior which aims to convey a sense of prestige with a premium image of the All-New Toyota Camry. “The new design language of the All-New Toyota Camry is not only something that is appealing to the eye, but the aerodynamic design also provides for straight line stability and a more composed ride”, added En. Ismet Suki, President of UMW Toyota Motor
The All-New Toyota Camry offers incredible fuel economy and power that is a necessity in a modern, class-leading medium PC (Passenger Car) segment vehicle. Inside, the All-New Toyota Camry focuses on the prestigious design with a sense of space, luxury and attention to detail as well as a touch of high tech craftsmanship.
On the move, the All-New Toyota Camry features significantly improved noise insulation that makes for a remarkably quiet cabin that offers a conversation friendly environment. This is something that is to be expected from a prestigious sedan like the Toyota Camry.
