Just recently, the Toyota 2012 Camry was launched and it did get a spectacular response from the public. In fact, the 2012 Camry is considered as Toyota Camry’s sixth model and this one is expected to create a great momentum in this year of the blue dragon. True to the sense of the year’s Chinese name, the 2012 Camry will surely make it to the top and make it well in the car market as the water dragon surges higher and higher to give spectacular manifestations to the car enthusiasts.
The introduction of the 2012 Camry has actually followed the launching of other models such as the new Avanza and the Prius C along with the three of the freshest in the car market like the Yaris, Land Cruiser 200, and Innova. The launching event was witnessed by the public, particularly car enthusiasts, at the Sofitel Hotel Philippine Plaza.
Basing from its global market, the Camry edition of Toyota is already on its thirtieth anniversary in this year. As a matter of fact, the Philippines only got its very first and only Camry edition sometime in 1996, which was that time, Camry took the place of Corona, which was venerable during those days while Exsior was basically the last of its variant that time.
When the Toyota Camry was introduced in the Philippines during that particular year, its name plate was already tagged on its 6th generation particularly in other place where this edition from Toyota was popularly marketed. So, this basically means that the entry of Camry in the Philippines was completely late because the Camry model that has entered the Philippine car market was already on its 6th generation. Obviously, the other first five generations weren’t introduced to the Philippine market due to various reasons coming from the Toyota Company, perhaps.
However, the launching of the 6th generation Camry model in the Philippines in 1996 was quite successful and it was followed by another very successful model sometime in 2001 and another one again sometime in 2006. The Toyota Company has basically followed the market direction of such car models the Asian way most particularly to the 2006 up to the 2012 model. However, the company made sure that all of the Camry models share the same kind of engineering and architecture like the ones sold in the United States.
The launching of the Camry XV50 2012-2013 is touted as the launching of the 3rd generation of Camry in the Philippines.
