The sedan is one of the most common automobile body styles both in the United States and other parts of the globe. Being popular among consumers, car manufacturers produce more and more of these to meet the demand of car buyers.

The huge production of sedans leads to a very competitive sedan market. Because of that competition, car manufacturers always come up with improvements on their sedans year after year. It is not surprising that the popular Toyota Camry is now in its sixth generation of redesign. For the 2007 model year, the Japanese outfit redesigned the Camry aiming for an increased sale.

The Toyota Camry is the best selling sedan in the United States for nine out of the past ten years starting in 1997. Toyota reported to have sold an average of 400,000 units of the Camry every year for the past ten years. And to continue their dominance, Toyota has improved the Camry’s styling to appeal even to younger consumers.

One of the most notable changes in the Toyota Camry is its exterior design. The 2007 Camry now sports a fresh design on its nose accentuated by the Toyota logo on its tip. The headlamps are also redesigned to give the Camry a friendlier look. The styling cues have been redesigned to attract the younger car buyers who are aesthetically tuned with regards to cars. In fact, the Camry’s redesigned exterior style reduced its coefficient of drag to just 0.28 and that is almost the same as that of sports car.

As can be expected from Toyota, the redesigned Camry is loaded with advanced features. The top of the line trim package, the XLE, has a long list of features car buyers would surely love. The XLE enables the vehicle to come equipped with a V6 engine which provides adequate power for an all around car. The Toyota Camry’s performance can further be enhanced with the use of aftermarket parts such as Jet chips cold air intake systems.

Facilitating the smooth transfer of power from the engine to the drive wheels is a precision engineered six-speed automatic transmission. The gearbox delivers that power to the 16-inch alloy wheels with disc brakes and an anti-lock braking system to boot.

Added features includes integrated fog lamps, halogen automatic headlights, power and heated outside mirrors, a dual exhaust with chrome tips, a sliding center arm rest, power driver and passenger leather seats, a dual zone climate control system, rear vents and ionizer, as well as a cruise control. Aside from that, the 2007 Camry is also equipped with JBL premium 8-speaker, a digital sound system with MP3, Bluetooth access, and in-dash 8-disc CD player for entertainment. Safety is also given attention with Toyota giving the Camry at least nine airbags. The complete lineup of airbags includes one for the driver’s knees. All in all, the 2007 Toyota Camry is one of the leaders in the sedan market in the United States.
