Mash's 2012 Toyota Camry

Long-term wrap-up: 2012 Toyota Camry meets 2010 Toyota Camry

Long-term wrap-up: 2012 Toyota Camry meets 2010 Toyota Camry


We’ve driven a lot of 2012 Toyota Camry variants over the past six months. Ever since its launch in the UAE, the local dealer Al Futtaim Motors has given us a lot of seat-time in this car, to the point where we’re actually driving one over this summer as a long-termer. That long-termer is gone now, but we’re now so acquainted with the new model that we can tell you exactly what has changed in this new model compared to the old one.

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry SE tech review

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry SE tech review


The gadgetry found in the top version of the latest 2012 Toyota Camry is the most advanced it has ever been for the Camry. Generally, GCC-spec cars for various brands are stripped down for maximum profit while keeping the price low, but Toyota has finally gone ahead and offered up a fully-loaded version of their bread-and-butter midsizer in the form of the SE Plus. So no one can complain about lack of features any more, as long as they’re willing to pay for it.

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry meets Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry meets Hyundai Genesis Coupe


The Toyota Camry is back this year in an all-new aggressive skin, complete with an angry chin and rear lip spoiler. These are clear signs that the Camry SE is vying to be something more than just a commuter car. With more power under the hood and revised suspension for tighter handling, the Camry SE Plus is a much better drive than before. But is it good enough to hang with sportier cars? Can it take on something like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe? Will this be an epic battle, Hindi movie-style, where the quiet office-worker suddenly transforms into a martial-arts fighter,

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry goes to Bangladesh

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry goes to Bangladesh


Those who’ve followed my exploits since the beginning might already know that I’m from Bangladesh. However, I grew up in Dubai so this is the place I’ve always called home. Aside from the usual racist taunts from underachieving idiots and the general lack of respect from people who think they’re destined for heaven, life here has been pretty smooth. I might be the only Bangladeshi in the regional automotive media, and I might be the only Bangladeshi in the world to bag a McLaren test-drive, but I am aware of what the automotive culture is like in my home country.

Long-term update: 2012 Toyota Camry meets 2005 Toyota Camry


This would be our first update on the 2012 Toyota Camry SE Plus long-termer that we picked up from Al Futtaim Motors more than a week ago. When we sat down to figure out what to write about this car, we came to the conclusion that there isn’t much to be said about the Camry. After all, it is a Camry. It’ll sell by the sackful, and there will always be a rabid bunch who’ll keep hating it. So after contemplating for a while, we decided to do the updates for this car differently. From now on, we’ll pitch our Camry against a variety of random cars,

So we got a 2012 Toyota Camry SE Plus long-termer


There are few things in life you can be sure of, at least where we live — Death, Salik, and the dominance of the Toyota Camry on the midsize sales charts, no matter what spiteful names you may call it. If you hate it just for the sake of hating it, you are in the minority. The truth is, the 2012 Toyota Camry is a good car. And we now have one for two months to prove it.
