When it comes to mid-size sedans, two names are normally at the top of everyone's list: Camry and Accord.
These two models dominate the segment as Toyota sold 388,616 Camry's in the United States last year, while Honda moved 345,225 Accords. As Honda pointed out in its press briefing in New Hampshire, the Accord alone outsells 30 different brands such as Mazda, MINI, and Fiat.
Holden Special Vehicles celebrated the end of local Commodore production with the 635 hp (474 kW) HSV GTSR W1 while Ford introduced the 496 hp (370kW) Falcon XR8 Sprint shortly before the company stopped production last October.
Toyota's tribute to Australian manufacturing is notably tamer as it's the Camry Hybrid Commemorative Edition.
We all expected this to happen but apparently the rise of the crossovers is happening faster than anticipated. The once-dominating-the-sales-charts Toyota Camry sedan has lost the first place in sales by not one but three compact SUV models through July in the US market.
The three SUVs are Nissan’s Rogue, the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V, with the former selling the most units in the US market since the start of the year, Bloomberg reports.
Japanese automakers Mazda and Toyota are planning to collaborate on a inter-connected vehicle infotainment platform for their next-generation vehicles, according to a new report.
Following the two companies buying shareholdings in each other a month ago while announcing plans for a joint factory in the US and co-development of electric vehicles (EVs), the new article by Japan’s Nikkei claims the manufacturers are set to share a core platform for in-vehicle navigation, media, and smartphone connections.
Few cars are blander than the XV20-generation Toyota Camry. Not only is its design boring enough to put you to sleep, but its gutless engines and dreary transmissions make it the worst nightmare for rev-heads looking to make an impression.
Nevertheless, a Camry owner in the United States hasn’t been dissuaded by that fact and decided to make the most of the unfortunate Camry-owning scenario by turning the sedan into an utterly-crazy Batmobile, as seen on Reddit.
Toyota Motor Corp succeeded in expanding the rear luggage space of the hybrid model of its "Camry" midsize sedan by about 20% to 524L by changing its suspension and the location of its battery.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp on Monday said it was committed to the ailing U.S. sedan market and that it expected a new model of its Camry, the top-selling passenger car in the United States for decades, to help boost the company's sales in the segment. The automaker said it was "inconceivable" that mid-size sedans would disappear from the market, and that any move by its rivals to stop selling what was once among the most popular vehicles would allow Toyota to boost its presence. Cheap U.S. gasoline prices have prompted drivers to opt for larger SUVs and pick-up trucks.
