The Toyota Camry XV30 is a mid-size vehicle that has been yielded by Toyota between June 2001 plus January 2006. The XV30 series represented the fifth generation of the Toyota Camry in every markets outside of Japan, that followed a different generational lineage. The XV30 Camry range is split into different model codes indicative of the engine. Four-cylinder models use the ACV30 plus ACV35 codes, with MCV30 plus MCV31 designating the six-cylinder versions.
In September 2001, the 2002 model year Toyota Camry was introduced because a heavier sedan just, however, without a station wagon for the very first time. Due with station wagons losing recognition with minivans plus crossover SUVs, the Camry wagon was changed by the Sienna minivan as well as the Highlander SUV, both cars using the Camry s platform.
The inline-four engine or straight-four engine is a kind of internal combustion 4 cylinder engine with all 4 cylinders installed inside a straight line, or airplane over the crankcase. The single bank of cylinders can be oriented inside either a vertical or an inclined airplane with the pistons driving a usual crankshaft. Where it happens to be inclined, it is actually occasionally called a slant-four. In a specification chart or whenever an abbreviation is utilized, an inline-four engine is indexed either because I4 or L4.
The inline-four design is within ideal main balance plus confers a degree of mechanical simplicity that makes it favored for economy vehicles. But, despite its simplicity, it suffers from a secondary imbalance that causes minor vibrations inside small machines. These vibrations become more effective because engine size plus energy heighten, thus the more effective motors selected inside greater vehicles commonly are more complex designs with over 4 cylinders.
Today most producers of four-cylinder machines for cars provide the inline-four design, with Subaru s flat-four engine being a notable exception, so four-cylinder is synonymous with along with a more popular expression than inline-four. The inline-four is the most commonly known engine configuration inside contemporary vehicles, whilst the V6 engine is the 2nd top. In the late 2000s, with car producers generating efforts with lower emissions; plus heighten gas efficiency due with the excellent cost of oil as well as the financial recession, the proportion of fresh cars available inside the U.S. with four-cylinder machines rose from 20 % with 47 % between 2005 plus 2008, very inside mid-size cars where a decreasing quantity of customers have selected the V6 performance choice.
Development of the XV30 started inside 1997 following release of the XV20 below chief engineer Kosaku Yamada. By 1999, 26 months before scheduled creation, a modern shape by Hiroyuki Metsugi was selected plus later frozen for June 2001 manufacturing. The creation development procedure was reduced by 10 months, within the before XV20 s 36 months with 26 months.
The front end of the vehicle was comparatively brief, exiting a lot of the size with the cabin, a technique adopted by compact vehicles. On the other hand with the very squat XV20 Camry, the XV30 generation had been a decidedly tall car. It was 64 mm taller plus had a 51 mm longer wheelbase than the past model. The coefficient of drag had been reduced with Cd=0.28.
Two motors were accessible an all-new 2.4-liter 2AZ-FE VVT-i I4 engine along with a carry over 3.0-liter 1MZ-FE V6 engine. Both motors inside the United States were ULEV licensed. Any model might be built with a V6 or perhaps a 4-speed automatic transmission, though the manual transmission wasn't accessible about V6 models. The Camry s front suspension employed MacPherson struts installed with a front sub-frame when the back suspension selected a double link setup furthermore installed with its own back sub-frame.
For protection ABS, Car Stability Control, front plus back head side curtain airbags, plus front seat-mounted torso side airbags were optional. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Camry Great total inside their frontal offset crash test. In their side impact test a Great total rating was provided with models built with side airbags, when models without side airbags were provided a Poor total rating.
In Australia plus New Zealand, the 2002 with 2006 Camry is obtainable in five different trims: the Altise, Ateva, Sportivo, Grande, plus Azura. The Altise, Ateva, plus Sportivo are accessible with either the 2.4 L four-cylinder or the 3.0 L V6 engine, while the Grande plus Azura were just accessible with all the V6. Just the Altise plus Sportivo models might be fitted with a manual transmission --- all different models are loaded with a four-speed automatic transmission. In 2003, the V6-powered Altise Sport model was introduced, that is basically the Altise model with all the sports suspension that has been fitted found on the Sportivo plus Azura models plus was obtainable in guide plus automatic transmission. The Australian plus New Zealand Camry Sportivo corresponds approximately with the American Camry SE.
2002--2004 Toyota Camry Altise
2004--2006 Toyota Camry Sportivo
2002--2004 Toyota Camry Altise sedan
2004--2006 Toyota Camry Altise
2003 Toyota Camry Sportivo
The Australian plus New Zealand models were greatly different within the additional Camry models all over the world plus had about 77% nearby developed components with suit Australian plus New Zealand roads plus driving conditions. The brakes, body panels, headlights, seats, radio antenna plus suspension were all nearby developed following 10,000 km of extensive testing inside New Zealand below the guidance of Toyota technicians. Power output found on the Altise Sport, V6 Sportivo plus Azura models was 145 kW compared with all the 141 kW of the standard V6 models due with a high-flow back muffler.
Whenever the revised range was established inside Australia plus New Zealand inside September 2004, the Grande model was reintroduced that, together with all the Azura model, were the top-of-the-range models. The Grande nonetheless was fitted with all the standard suspension instead of the sports suspension because fitted found on the Azura model. The Grande plus Azura models have Satellite Navigation because standard equipment, plus were the initially Toyota models inside Australia with be fitted with all the new Toyota Link program. The Toyota Link program is a state-of-the-art satellite plus mobile SMS GSM communications program which provides the driver access with roadside assistance plus emergency aid through the electrochromatic back see mirror. In August 2005 the Altise Sport model was reintroduced together with Altise Limited which has more attributes. The Ateva model had an inside upgrade with leather trim plus back passenger air conditioner vents. The Altise was repositioned because a fleet model as well as the guide transmission was no longer accessible about V6 Sportivo models from January 2006 manufacturing. Automatic Camrys inside Australia nevertheless employed the dated four-speed considering it retained the 3.0 V6 engine.
A amount of milestones were attained with this generation s Camry inside Australia. The 1 millionth Camry integrated Australia plus 10 millionth Camry internationally rolled off the manufacturing line at Altona inside September 2004. In May 2006 Toyota Australia exported the 500,000th Camry with New Zealand, inside recognition of the relationship between Toyota Australia plus Toyota New Zealand. More than 90% of Australian Camry exports are left-hand drive cars with Middle East nations including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, as well as the United Arab Emirates. The overseas need for the Australian-made Camry remains running at record degrees, inspite of the launch of a all-new model inside August 2006.
The Toyota Avalon is a full-size automobile yielded by Toyota inside the United States, plus is the flagship sedan of Toyota inside the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico as well as the Middle East. It was additionally yielded inside Australia from 2000 till July 2005 whenever it was changed inside November 2006 by the Toyota Aurion. The initial Toyota Avalon rolled off the assembly line inside Georgetown, Kentucky about February 21, 1994 because a 1995 model. A second-generation model was introduced inside the United States plus Japan inside 1999.
Toyota advertised the Avalon because filling the gap left by the discontinuation of the Toyota Cressida inside the American marketplace inside 1992. While the Cressida was an upper-level midsize rear-wheel drive automobile with a straight-six engine, the Avalon is front-wheel drive, driven with a V6 engine. In latest years, there has been considerable overlapping with its platform mates, the Toyota Camry V6 as well as the Lexus ES, though the 3rd generation Avalon was recognized by providing additional legroom. For its 4th generation, the Avalon was introduced with a platform which is straight shared with all the Lexus ES.
As of 2013, the Toyota Avalon is obtainable in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, South Korea as well as the Middle East.
The second-generation Avalon grew greater inside virtually each regard. It was nevertheless based found on the stretched Camry platform plus was driven with a 3.0 liter 1MZ-FE V6 engine built with VVT-i, shared with all the Toyota Sienna, Lexus RX300, Lexus ES, as well as the Toyota Highlander, generating 210 hp plus 220 lb ft. of torque plus paired with a 4-speed automatic. The styling stayed traditional with appeal with elder customers as well as the coefficient of drag had been reduced with 0.28 Cd.
2003--2004 Toyota Avalon XLS
This Avalon was obtainable in 2 trims: the standard XL as well as the upscale XLS. Standard qualities include electroluminescent Optitron gauges, 4-wheel disk ABS, front torso side airbags plus 15" alloy wheels. Optional attributes include a JBL sound program, a navigation program, Car Stability Control, along with a front row bench seat, permitting as much as six passengers---a distinguishable characteristic of big sized vehicles. But the front center seat is a tight fit for an adult passenger. Dual climate control, bigger 16" wheels, plus driver s plus passenger s force seats were furthermore accessible.
This second-generation Avalon furthermore showcased a built-in 115V AC force inverter, the initial automobile with such a feature. This feature was dropped inside the third-generation Avalon; yet, the Toyota Matrix, Sienna plus Scion models today provide this feature.
The Avalon received a mid-cycle facelift for the 2003 model year, with a unique grille plus modified headlights plus taillights. The minor interior changes included a woodgrain-style trimmed steering wheel for the XLS, somewhat modified gauges, along with a chrome emblem steering wheel added onto the XL.
This second-generation Avalon was moreover exported with the Japanese marketplace because the Toyota Pronard, changing the first-generation available because the Avalon. The Japanese Toyota Pronard was reassigned from Toyopet Store plus was today exclusive with Toyota Vista Store places. Due with bad sales, Toyota didn't export the third-generation Avalon with Japan; therefore, the Toyota Pronard has been discontinued.
In the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal crash test the Avalon received a "Good" total score with all the "Good" in every six calculated categories.
The Avalon came standard with anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake support, double front airbags, front row side torso airbags, front plus back side curtain airbags, along with a driver s knee airbag. For 2009 models Car Stability Control, traction control became standard when active head restraints were added. In 2010, the Star Safety System was added for the 2011 models.
The Avalon was topic with the 2009-10 Toyota car recalls. 2011 plus later models come standard with a brake-override program.
The Avalon received a "Good" total score inside both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal offset plus side impact tests. In 2009, with all the brand-new head restraints the IIHS granted the Avalon its Top Safety Pick accolade.
A "Good" rating inside IIHS the rooftop strength test IIHS earned 2011 models the company s "Top Safety Pick 2010" designation. The 2011 model furthermore received the "Top Safety Pick 2011" recommendation.
Electronic brakeforce distribution or electronic brakeforce limitation is an vehicle brake technologies which automatically varies the amount of force used with every of the car s brakes, based about road conditions, speed, loading, etc. Consistently combined with anti-lock braking systems, EBD will apply almost braking stress with every wheel inside purchase with maximize stopping energy while retaining vehicular control. Typically, the front end carries the many fat plus EBD distributes less braking stress with the back brakes thus the back brakes never lock up plus result a skid. In certain systems, EBD distributes more braking stress at the back brakes throughout initial brake application before the effects of fat transfer become obvious.
Under thick braking, car wheels can lock-up due with excessiveness of wheel torques than tire-road friction forces accessible, caused by too much wheel cylinder stress. The anti-lock braking program monitors wheel speeds plus releases stress about individual wheel brake lines, quickly pulsing individual brakes with avoid lock-up. During thick braking, preventing wheel lock-up assists the driver keep steering control. Modern ABS has an individual brake line for every of the 4 wheels, permitting different braking stress about different road surfaces. As an example, less braking stress is required with lock a wheel about ice than a wheel that is about bare asphalt. If the left wheels are about asphalt as well as the appropriate wheels are about ice, throughout an emergency stop, ABS detects the proper wheels going to lock plus reduces braking force found on the appropriate wheels, assisting with avoid lock-up plus reduction of car control.
The 2nd driver s side plus separate knee airbag was selected inside the 1996 model Kia Sportage car plus has been standard equipment because then. The airbag is positioned under the steering wheel. The Toyota Avensis became the initially car available inside Europe loaded with a driver s knee airbag. The EuroNCAP reported found on the 2003 Avensis, "There has been much effort with safeguard the driver s legs plus legs along with a knee airbag worked perfectly." Because then certain models have additionally included front passenger knee airbags, that deploy close or over the glove compartment inside a crash. Knee airbags are made with decrease leg injury. The knee airbag has become increasingly usual from 2000.
The shape is conceptually simple; a central Airbag control device monitors a quantity of associated sensors in the car, including accelerometers, impact sensors, side stress sensors, wheel speed sensors, gyroscopes, brake stress sensors, plus seat occupancy sensors. The bag itself as well as its inflation device is hidden in the steering wheel boss, or the dashboard, behind plastic flaps or doorways that are crafted with "rip open" below the force of the bag inflating. Once the requisite threshold has been reached or surpassed, the airbag control device may trigger the ignition of the fuel generator propellant with fast inflate a cloth bag. As the car resident collides with plus squeezes the bag, the fuel escapes inside a controlled way by tiny vent holes. The airbag s amount as well as the size of the vents inside the bag are designed with every car kind, with spread out the deceleration of the resident over time plus over the resident s body, compared with a seat belt alone.
The data within the numerous sensors are fed into the Airbag control device, that determines from them the angle of impact, the severity, or force of the crash, together with different factors. Depending found on the outcome of these calculations, the ACU can equally deploy numerous more restraint equipment, including seat belt pre-tensioners, and/or airbags. Each restraint device is usually triggered with 1 or even more pyrotechnic equipment, commonly called an initiator or electrical match. The electrical match, that consists of a electric conductor wrapped inside a combustible information, activates with a active pulse between 1 with 3 amperes inside lower than 2 milliseconds. When the conductor becomes hot enough, it ignites the combustible information, that initiates the fuel generator. In a seat belt pre-tensioner, this hot fuel is utilized with drive a piston which pulls the loose from the seat belt. In an airbag, the initiator is employed with ignite strong propellant inside the airbag inflator. The burning propellant generates inert fuel that quickly inflates the airbag inside around 20 with 25 milliseconds. An airbag should inflate fast inside purchase with be completely inflated by the time the forward-traveling resident reaches its outer surface. Typically, the choice with deploy an airbag inside a frontal crash is created inside 15 with 20 milliseconds following the onset of the crash, plus both the driver plus passenger airbags are completely inflated in around 60-80 milliseconds following the initial time of car contact. If an airbag deploys too late or too gradually, the danger of resident injury from contact with all the inflating airbag could grow. Since more distance usually exists between your passenger as well as the instrument panel, the passenger airbag is heavier plus demands more fuel with fill it.
Electronic stability control, equally called electronic stability system or dynamic stability control, is a computerized technologies which improves the protection of the car s stability by detecting plus reducing reduction of traction. When ESC detects reduction of steering control, it automatically applies the brakes to aid "steer" the car where the driver intends with go. Braking is automatically used with wheels individually, like the outer front wheel with countertop oversteer or the internal back wheel with countertop understeer. Many ESC systems equally decrease engine energy till control is regained. ESC refuses to better a car s cornering performance; rather, it helps you to reduce the reduction of control. According with Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as well as the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one-third of fatal injuries can be prevented by the utilization of the technologies.
During general driving, ESC functions inside the background plus continuously monitors steering plus car way. It compares the driver s intended way with the car s actual way, plus individual road wheel speeds).
ESC intervenes just whenever it detects a probable reduction of steering control, i.e. whenever the car is not going where the driver is steering. This can arise, for illustration, whenever skidding throughout emergency evasive swerves, understeer or oversteer throughout improperly judged turns about slippery roads, or hydroplaning. ESC can equally intervene inside an unwelcome means throughout high-performance driving, considering steering input could not constantly be straight indicative of the intended way of travel. ESC estimates the way of the skid, plus then applies the brakes with individual wheels asymmetrically inside purchase with create torque regarding the car s vertical axis, opposing the skid plus delivering the car back inside line with all the driver s commanded way. Additionally, the program might lessen engine force or work the transmission with slow the car down.
ESC could function about any surface, from dry pavement with frozen ponds. It reacts with plus adjusts skidding much quicker plus more effectively than the typical human driver, usually before the driver is even aware of any imminent reduction of control. In truth, this led with several concern which ESC may permit motorists with become overconfident inside their car s handling and/or their own driving abilities. For this cause, ESC systems usually inform the driver whenever they intervene, thus which the driver knows which the car s handling limits have been contacted. Most activate a dashboard signal light and/or alert tone; several intentionally let the car s corrected course with deviate pretty somewhat within the driver-commanded way, whether or not it's potential with more exactly match it.
Indeed, all ESC producers highlight which the program is not a performance enlargement neither a substitution for secure driving practices, however, very a protection development with support the driver inside recovering from hazardous scenarios. ESC refuses to grow traction, thus it refuses to help quicker cornering. More usually, ESC functions in inherent limits of the car s handling plus accessible traction involving the tyres plus road. A reckless maneuver will nonetheless surpass these limits, causing reduction of control. As an example, inside a serious hydroplaning situation, the wheels which ESC might employ with correct a skid could not even initially be inside contact with all the road, reducing its capability.
In July 2004, found on the Crown Majesta, Toyota available a Car Dynamics Integrated Management program which included formerly independent systems, including ESC. This worked not merely following the skid was recognized and with avoid the skid from occurring to begin with. Using electric variable gear ratio steering energy steering, this more advanced program might equally alter steering gear ratios plus steering torque degrees with aid the driver inside evasive manoeuvres.
Due with the truth which stability control may often be incompatible with high-performance driving, numerous cars have an over-ride control that enables the program with be partially or completely closed off. In easier systems, a single switch will disable all qualities, whilst more complicated setups could have a multi-position switch or might not be really turned completely off.
