With the Peugeot 508, Peugeot continues its international offensive: It will be manufactured in France for the European sphere, then in China for the world's largest developing vehicle sphere.

Available in two body styles, Saloon and SW, the Peugeot 508 will be marketed in Europe from the beginning of 2011.
Toyota presented the all-new, seventh-generation Toyota Camry, America's best-selling vehicle for nine years running and 13 of the past 14 years. The 2012 Toyota Camry debuts a bold, sophisticated new layout with a more roomy dashboard, enhanced driving dynamics and an even quieter ride than before. With class leading security, fuel efficiency and multi-media technology added in, the end result is the best Toyota Camry ever made. Presented in 1983, the Toyota Camry would later establish the template for the modern midsize sedan, setting benchmarks for Class, Dependability and Reliability, along with a convenient, quiet ride. Since that time, Toyota has sold more than 15 million Toyota Camry models worldwide.

The all-new 2012 Toyota Camry blends an evolution of the car's values - such as convenience, efficiency, reliability and security - with a more attractive layout and engaging driving experience, explained Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and basic manager. Competition in the midsize sedan segment is the strongest it's ever been, and the all-new Toyota Camry is developed to maintain its long-standing leadership while also broadening its appeal.

The Toyota Camry again provides three powertrain choices, all of which have been improved for 2012 to offer better fuel efficiency and more responsive performance. All Toyota Camry models with the updated 2. 5-liter four-cylinder motor now provide 178 horsepower, an increase of nine hp, and 170 lb. -ft. of peak torque. Epa-estimated fuel efficiency figures are 25 mpg city/35 highway, and the 28 mpg combined is two more than the previous generation Toyota Camry. The 2. 5-liter motor employs Dual Vvt-i (dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent), which controls valve timing on both the intake and exhaust camshafts for optimal performance and efficiency at all motor speeds. The Acoustic Control Induction System (ACIS) helps optimize torque over a broad motor speed range.

The DOHC 3. 5-liter V6, available in the SE and XLE grades, provides 268 horsepower at 6200, rpm and 248 lb. -ft. of peak torque at 4700, rpm. Improvements to this motor boost its fuel efficiency to projected Epa-estimated ratings of 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway, the best for any current V6 midsize sedan.
