    '07 Camry Coming Into View

    http://www.japanesecarfans.com/spyph...id/6050720.001

    I don't mean to make a decision based on a camoed vehicle, but is it me or is this thing getting less attractive? I'll laugh for months if the Sonata ends up better looking.

    Exact same thing happened when the '02 was being spyphotoed. Gorgeous at first, and look what we ended up with.

    I don't know. From what I've seen so far, I don't think its that bad actually. Of course, we will have to wait until the production version comes out, but I don't expect this model to hurt the Camry's chances of staying in the number 1 slot.

    I like the big H on the front. Honda? Hybrid?

    While I was in Japan, one of the most popular luxury cars sold there was the Crown Athlete and Majesty (?). This, despite being FWD and the Crown being RWD, look very similar in the rear and side profile. I'm guessing that's where Toyota got their new Camry design "inspiration" from.

    2007 BMW 328i. Black sapphire metallic. Terra leather. Poplar wood. Automatic trans. Xenon adaptive headlights. BMW Assist. Bluetooth. Premium package. Heated seats. iDrive navigation system. Rear sonar. Comfort access. LOGIC7 surround sound. Sirius. 18" BMW wheels. Rear spoiler.

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury. Black onyx pearl. Beige leather. 4WD. Chrome hood vents, mirror covers, exhaust. Silver grille, taillight trim. Brushed metal bumper protector. Running boards.

    i doubt anyone saw those leaked spy pics of the uncamoed 07 camry a long time ago, but they supposedly resembled one of the Lexus concept vehicles somewhat.


    Not to mention to those who saw it they were like "OMFG An Attractice camry?? wtf??"

    I know that was my reaction. Those pics made me want to see the next gen Camry in person.

    Do you guys mean these "leaked" photos? http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/sh...1&page=1&pp=15

    IMO, if it looks anything like the one in the pictures above, I will say good job...

    Is there an "H" on the front emblem? Who are they trying to fool?

    I wondered that too? Why does Toyota want people to think its a Honda? Toyota beats Honda in initial & long term quality so I wonder why?

    Because Toyota doesn't want everyone to know what their next Camry will look like. That's why these pre-production cars are all covered up. Why do you think it'd have anything to do with quality?!?

    They just want to fool people. That thing is very plain.

    Thanks for the link, Chase.

    I'm having a hard time reconciling those leaked photos with the spy photo above. I can see SOME similarity, but not a lot. The leaked photos came about right after the Sonata intro. It could have been a defense mechanism to deflect attention back to Toyota and away from Hyundai. Didn't work. I now see more Sonata ads on TV every day than Camry ads, at that's A LOT.

    And I much prefer the '06 Sonata to the current Camry.

    Re: '07 Camry Coming Into View

    Before I go blasting this all over the site, did I just happen upon the '07 Camry? Better be safe than sorry. I've never heard of a Premio before, in Japan or anywhere else, and if you imagine the disguise around this, it sure looks like the next Camry to me! The US Camry is not sold in Japan, but the next one might be....

    I saw that,too. Maybe it'a a little joke on Toyota's part, making everyone think it's a Honda.
