2013 Toyota Camry Atara R 2.5 from Australia and New Zealand
Not your typical Camry, which makes a nice change
When starting the car cold, it makes a slightly rough ticking sound. Toyota said all similar models do that and did not really want to know more about it.
The car runs very well and has a fair amount of power. I do get a little confused with the way the power is distributed though when accelerating. It's smooth to drive and comfortable, especially on long haul drives. The audio touch screen display can be a little irritating at times as selections need to be done more than once to get a response.
The cabin is very roomy for a mid size car. More so than the Nissan Maxima's I've been told. Plenty of leg room in rear seat. Boot space is generous.
The body is unique, this model does not look like your typical boring Camry, it has some character with the 17 alloy wheels, sports front bumper, fog lights and sports side skirts. The reversing camera helps as it is slightly longer than previous models.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
