Camry on, dull but durable

While got to give the company full for moving the game on, it’s some cause for wonder Toyota’s latest Camry is a left-field looking piece of

The vaguely cab-forward stance and the waistline might make for a dynamic looking device, but we help wondering what Camry buyers think it.

While some vehicles can be criticised for being conservative it was the Camry’s conservatism — in the specification and dynamics — actually sold the things.

None of which explains the away from the straight and in the latest Camry. But it does that, for many, the superseded embodied true Camry

Certainly, it exhibits Camry to a fault and, as a used-car it’s up there with the of them.

The models we’re about carry Toyota’s of SVX20R (four-cylinder) and MCV20R but it’s essentially the second after the switch to the wide-body tag of Toyota was so proud.

It is, without too fine a point on it, one of the most shapes in motoring, but if you’re the type, then the Camry launched here in 1997 is for you.

Back then, Toyota was persisting with separate and Vienta badges but don’t be the Vienta is nothing more a V6-powered Camry with a bit fruit on board. The two drive and the same (in V6 form) and if you don’t the extra performance of the V6, then a Camry will do fine.

that in mind, the Camry for 1997 kicked off with the model in a bewildering array of names and specification levels.

The CSi was a price-leader version aimed at but plenty of CSis made it the hands of private owners. about too much in the way of standard because remote central power mirrors and power is about as good as it gets.

For a couple of thousand dollars the Camry could be optioned up to the V6 and the even better news was it could still be had with a manual gearbox, although buyers went for the four-speed

But, purely by accident one with a V6 engine and manual Toyota suddenly had a bit of a performance-car on its hands.

The four-cylinder measured 2.2 and cranked out an adequate 94 kW of power. But the V6 upped the ante with litres of capacity and a much 141 kW, with much more right across the engine’s range.

If it was a little extra you were after, the solution was to opt for the range.

The best Vienta value was to be had the VXi model — suddenly, you into dual-front-airbag and ABS-brakes

You also picked up climate-control and cruise control, bringing the more into line what most buyers these days.

As well as the sedan, a conventional station-wagon was also available in Vienta

The main accommodation issue was a of rear-seat leg room, although perfectly fine for smaller or shorter trips.

Either it’s a better rear-seat than offered by the Camry’s opposition, the Mitsubishi Magna.

in either version is secure and and a degree of steering kickback negotiating bumpy corners is the drawback. The ride is plush and if the Camry never feels a performance car, that won’t bother potential

What will make a however, is that legendary reliability and durability.

We haven’t of a single recurring mechanical and the chances of something going in a second-hand Camry or Vienta remote.

Throw in the fact the original owners tended to be folk who drove moderately and their vehicles regularly, and hard to think of a better buy.

What to pay

A good, CSi sedan with a four-cylinder is going to cost you something $10,000 from a dealer and $1500 less privately. start at about $14,000 and for a car with something like km on board. If you’re patient, you might just score an with fewer kilometres, age doesn’t seem to weary
