Bollywood celebrities’ love affair with cars is known to everyone. Most of them own a fleet of swanky and expensive cars, and can be spotted with them at several events. Asin thottumkal, the famous Indian actress, is one of the celebrities who have a secret love affair with plush and expensive cars. She owns a Toyota Camry premium saloon and a masculine Audi Q7 SUV. The actress mostly move in her favorite Camry whether it’s for public appearances, promotional campaigns or work. This saloon is one of the popular celebrity cars in India.

Launched back in 1983, the Camry was the global successor of the Corolla and since then the mid-sized sedan has always been among popular Toyota cars across the globe. The Japanese automaker introduced the Camry XV30 series in India in 2002, which was later updated as the new-gen XV40 in 2007 and the current-generation XV50 in 2012. The company also introduced the saloon’s hybrid version in India in 2013.

The current generation model shares a great resemblance to its predecessor. Although, the new aerodynamic sheet metals, which are claimed to used in Formula 1 cars mark a distinction to its profile. The plenty of chrome and new ‘rational tech-dynamism’ design philosophy add a dash of glamour to its premium road presence. This is one of the reasons why it’s among the most popular celebrity cars in India.

The interior is plush, feature-rich and comfortable. The cabin space is slightly improved, and there is ample legroom and headroom, too. Rest of the design, dimension and equipment are same as the old model. Powering the saloon is a highly-refined 2.5-litre dual VVT-i petrol engine that develops a maximum power of 178.3bhp with 233Nm of torque. A 6-speed automatic gearbox is the only available option.

The agile suspension and superior cabin insulation ensure a comfortable ride. The handling is quite predictable, and the high speed stability is good too. The Camry is few of the Toyota cars that offer a rare blend of power, performance, practicability and premium elegance.
