    MARKET leader Toyota has decided to leave for now the crowded 2.0-liter car market and, instead, move up the top-line Camry to the 2.4-and the 3.0-liter segment.

    Toyota will launch today the new, three-liter, V6 engine Camry for P1.68 million, after Nissan Cefiro last week introduced the market's first three-liter model for P1.45 million.

    Like the new Cefiro, the bigger Camry also has a power rear sunshade, but with the bonus that its all-leather rear seats, not only the front, have power recline.

    The two 2.4-liter Camry versions are priced at P1.48 million and P1.295 million. In contrast, the two 2.0-liter versions, which have now been phased out, carried price tags of P1.34 million and P1.23 million.

    With Toyota's 2.0-liter segment void, it is likely that the Toyota Corolla Altis, whose current top range is powered by a 1.8-liter, will likely be revved up with a 2.0-liter version, just like what Honda did with its Civic lineup.

    Camry is currently the local top-seller in its class with a 40-percent market share, and the market leader in Taiwan and Thailand as well.

    darating kaya ang time na mawala na mga 1.6L at puro 2.0L na lang? sinimulan dati ng galant / corona but then the tax structure wasn't right... now that naayos na... almost lahat eh naglalabas na ng 2.0L na compact sedan...

    i don't think that they would phase out the 1.6L sedans... there would still be a market for that as not everyone can afford & maintain a 2.0L car

    nagiging mas fuel efficient na kasi karamihan ng japanese engines kaya nilalakihan na ang displacement.
