Toyota?s dominance of the Australian automotive landscape continues. Having filled the two top spots in April sales with their HiLux and Corolla comes the news that their Camry has claimed the title of the best-selling Australian-made car.

A record number of 111,891 Camry sedans were produced last year at Toyota's Altona plant in Melbourne's west and sold on domestic and export markets.

Camry was the only Australian-built car with annual production exceeding 100,000 vehicles.

Only around a quarter of the Camrys produced were sold in Australia with Aussie motorists buying more than 26,300 Camry sedans ? but that was still enough to make the Camry the country's best-selling mid-size car by a margin of more than two-to-one over its nearest rival.

The vast majority of Australian-made Camry sedans - more than 85,500 cars - were exported and sold in more than 20 countries.

Domestic and export sales combined to make Camry the top-selling Australian-made car. Not content to rest on its laurels, Toyota is adding to the appeal of the four-cylinder Camry for Australians shopping in the mid-size segment with the release of the Camry Ateva L special-edition model, which features more than $2000 of equipment for no extra cost.

Special-edition features include leather seats and door trim, 17-inch alloy wheels, a lip spoiler and badging all for the same standard Ateva price of $33,750*.

Toyota has also made a running upgrade to the Camry Grande, adding 17-inch alloy wheels as standard with no change to the $39,990*.

* Recommended retail prices exclude dealer delivery, government and statutory charges and optional extras.
