UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT), the distributor of Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, announced that the all-new Toyota Camry has been awarded with 5-star rating by ASEAN NCAP (New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries) based on its crash test results.
The all-new Camry, which was launched in December last year, scored 49.04 points for the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), 22.68 points for Child Occupant Protection (COP) and 19.75 point for Safety Assist Technologies (SATs) assessments. With the Camry scoring in all aspects including effective braking avoidance, seat belt reminders, blind spot technology and advance safety assist technologies, it received a 5-star rating with an overall score of 91.47 points.
Completely redesigned for the 8th generation, since it was first introduced for the Malaysian market in the early 1990s, the Toyota Camry is available in the 2.5V variant. It features advanced Toyota Safety Sense such as the Pre-collision System, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) as well as Automatic High Beam (AHB).
The styling of the Camry is more futuristic and expressive. Built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, the company had taken a new approach in designing, engineering and developing a Camry that has very responsive handling, tougher vehicle body and other world-class features that provide peace of mind, as well as the pleasure of driving.
The announcement was made in conjunction with the launch ceremony of the ASEAN NCAP Labelling Compliance Guideline 2019 for Malaysia by Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution bin Ismail, Minister of Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP). It will become mandatory for manufacturers to display the ASEAN NCAP rating label on their vehicles on sale starting from 1 March 2020, to ensure that consumers are well aware of the NCAP ratings of the vehicle they want to purchase.
