The 2018 Toyota Camry now receives updates on styling, equipment as well as driver assistance systems
Like the Prius and C-HR, this latest Toyota Camry sits on Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform which is said to provide a “fun driving experience”. Accordingly, the car will get a 30% stiffer structure and 48 mm longer wheelbase. These facilitate the suspension operation and make space for the cabin.

Know more about Toyota Camry 2021
The Toyota Camry is one of the longest-running nameplates in the Japanese carmaker's lineup. It was introduced in 1982 and is currently continues to be a top-seller for the brand. When the model was first introduced, it was designed to compete in compact sedan markets. But in the early 90s, Toyota decided to increase the configuration size, making it a midsize sedan. Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) launched the 8th-gen Camry in the local market in late 2018, arriving with a sleeker and sportier exterior appeal as compared to the outgoing generation. Inside, the 5-seater midsize sedan provides an executive and modern feel thanks to the wood trims, spacious cabin, an ergonomic leather interior, and adjustable seats for both the driver and passengers. In consideration of the size and features, the PH-spec Toyota Camry is offered with a price that plays around the P2-million mark, making it one of the most expensive in Toyota's Philippine lineup. This midsize sedan is marketed for those Filipino car consumers who are in the market for a premium, quality, and upscaled vehicle.
