The Japanese based model Toyota Camry has recently received a five-star rating in the NHTSA crash tests and its reinforced body structure with high-strength steel construction played a major role.
“We are very pleased that the all-new 2012 Camry has earned a five-star composite safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The fact that the Camry earned this five-star overall score after enduring a more rigorous NHTSA testing procedure targeted at raising the bar for overall vehicle safety testament to the strong design, and safety-focused engineering consumers can expect in the nation’s top-selling car”, as Toyota said in the official press release.
As a reminder, the 2012 Toyota Camry is being offered in four trim levels, the L, LE, XLE and sporty SE, with all of them being powered by a 2.5 liter four cylinder engine which is developing a total output of 178 horsepower and having a peak torque of 170 lb-ft. The estimated fuel-economy is 25/35/38 mpg (city/highway/combined). For the XLE and the SE trim levels a larger 3.5 liter V6 unit is also available, which is generating 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque, having an estimated fuel-economy of 21/30 mpg (city/highway). Prices for the 2012 Toyota Camry start at 21.995 USD.
