Toyota spent a fortune developing the redesigned, third generation, “wide body” Camry range for the early ‘90s, utilising dynamic and refinement lessons learned during the multi-billion dollar Lexus LS program.

The result was a larger, wider, stronger, safer, roomier and more comfortable family-sized sedan and station wagon.

And like before, Holden offered it as the JM Apollo range.

A 95kW 2.2L 5S-FE four-cylinder engine powered the Executive, CSi and sedan-only Ultima models, while a new name (Vienta) identified the 139kW 3.0L quad-cam V6 versions.

October '93’s Vienta Touring featured sports suspension, alloy wheels and – from ’95 – the option of a five-speed manual transmission.

Until then V6s were four-speed auto-only. Anti-lock brakes became an option.

In April ’94 the CS-X reappeared, replacing the Executive and 2.2L Ultima, and featured a standard driver’s airbag from June.

In April ’95 the lightly facelifted SXV10 Camry range received a round of improvements, including new trim and an immobiliser, ahead of October’s separation of the Camry and Vienta models.

“Getaway” (Oct ’96) and “Intrigue” (April ’97) value-added special editions included air-conditioning and a CD player.
