1984 Toyota Camry.jpg

Toyota Camry (SV10/CV10). 1982–6 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1832, 1995 cm³ petrol, 1839, 1974 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1998 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Camry spun off on to its own nameplate, rather than being a subsidiary line of the Celica. Front-wheel drive, new to this segment at Toyota, with development starting in 1977, and, like smaller Tercel, meant to be light, frugal and aerodynamic. New 1·8-litre engine for front-wheel-drive application. Meant to complement Corona, which was still RWD at Camry’s launch, but it eventually usurped the older model line in some markets. Conservative looks, but perhaps less conservative than Corona. Four-door only; five-door models that were exported were actually from the Vista line (q.v.). US model had four headlamps, to suit regulations there. Initially only a 1·8-litre petrol model; two-litre petrol from August 1982. Turbodiesel 1·8 the following year. Mid-term changes in 1984, with twin-cam DOHC model added. Larger turbodiesel from 1985, with changes paralleled with Vista.
