why buy a camry or accord for $500k when i could buy a bmw? :|

Keep in mind though that the TOYOTA CAMRY has been the number 1 selling sedan in the USA for the past decade and right behind them is the accord, so much for BENZ n BMW.......no one can argue their superior engineering but the Japanese Know how to make a PRACTICAL vehicle...which explains why TOYOTA is the No.1 auto exporter in the world......and theres nothing the europeans can do to stop their dominance of the auto industry....TOYOTA>>>HONDA all the way!!!!

Just cause it sells in the US doesn't mean it really works here. Camry is #1 seller in the US based on price as well. Not necessarily because it's a better car than say a 5 series. Camry here we pay essentially for engine tax. When engine tax bumps a cheaper vehicle into the price realm of the usual luxury vehicles I see no problem in thinking about price shock and legitimately looking at buying the luxury vehicle once one can afford it.
If given the choice between a BMW 5 series and a Toyota Camry I'd easily take the 5. I don't care about how it sells in the US.

Plus the Camry that they sell here aint the same that they sell there.

The 5 series that they sell here though, is very close if not the same, GPS and all.

some reasons why u should not compare a camry with a 5-series (usdm):

1) its a fwd japanese economy mid-size sedan
2) it cheaper
3) it has less features
4) it has smaller engine options

for TTDM:

1) Camry is a Toyota
2) its one of the approved official vehicle of the GORTT
3) it have a 3.5 v6 option for the price of a 4-cylinder 5-series
4) it have resale value
5) trunk spoilers look good in them as well as imported chinese black coloured reverse sensors (can be installed separately)
6) its basically a lexus without the badge
7) camry in injun world = you've made it big despite the frozen $5M account in CIB....I mean FCB

I visited the NM Showroom and checked out the Versa and March.

My thoughts:

The Versa is priced at $153k. Previously, the Tiida sedan were priced at $149,500. and $153k the latter having alloy rims.

Well this Versa comes with the HR15DE engine instead of the HR16DE in the Tiida. The 1.5 unit now produces less HP than the JDM roro Tiida’s and Wingroads imported into this country. At 99ps and 134Nm of torque, I must say this is disappointing.

The vehicle has a very narrow equipment listing which is:
Dual airbags, abs/ebd/eba brakes, wheel covers, power windows in the front only, no center console instead it has a dual van suction system pulling air from the front to the back. It has steering wheel mounted audio controls for the double DIN CD/MP3 deck with aux input connected to 4 meager speakers.

The vehicle dashboard and door panels (inserts) are all full of retrograde plastics that are hard and shiny to the eyes. The door panels and most if not all of the plastic components inside the cabin feel extremely cheap and it doesn’t look like it will last long as the door handles (both on the outside and inside) seems like it can easily break off. Infact, I did not like the way the handle operated whilst opening the door so I actually had to double check it to make sure I actually did not break the thing.

Interior room is unimpressive for a vehicle boasting a 2600mm wheel base and the puffy dashboard full of hard plastic feels like it was swollen over time in the sun doesn’t offer any degree of spaciousness in the front. The seat adjustment handle felt so flimsy I did not bother to adjust the seat for fear of breaking it off.

The trunk is more or less the same size of the Tiida and now for my most disappointing report:

The vehicle seems as though it was flash painted under a mango tree somewhere in a remote village in Rio Claro because the edging was poorly done and the bonnet (the underneath) remained in the natural base white colour with red paint spray scattered unevenly across the underside. Even the engine bay is white with paint spray on the left and right apron as well as the shock towers. The radiator panel does not connect to the to fenders it seems, it is a short panel that abruptly ends which is above the bumper re-inforcement. The setup in the engine bay is weird.

Overall, this car is another clear indication of the rippoff we have to settle for in sweet TnT since this car should actually cost less than the outgoing Tiida but it is priced the same or it is actually priced more versus the wheel cover Tiida sold previously for $146k approx.

Its indeed a step back in design for Nissan. Perhaps as huge as the step forward made by Hyundai with their new model designs last year!
Kinda looks like a cramped up bluebird sylphy :lol:
Not mentioned the third world feature pack that comes with it.. :?
I don't understand why though.. Why would N&M bring such a lacking vehicle here.. For sale... In the year 2012.. Seriously.. I think a B14 super saloon probably has more features.

I was told the Versa was imported from India. We get the North American name but yet it is imported from India where it is known as the Sunny. In addition, Singapore has the same car but calls it the Almera.

I checked the VIN and it declared “N17” which means this is the successor to the N16 (almera). The confusing thing is, the Tiida replaced the B15 and the Versa/Tiida is a line by itself since in essence the Versa we get is actually the 2nd gen Tiida. Now the Sylphy which is actually the successor to the N16 Almera is still selling in Japan alongside the first gen Tiida/Latio. So Nissan effectively is selling two models now alongside each other which is the successor to the Almera and first gen Tiida. How odd is that?

The Juke and the March are equally as disappointing as the Versa especially the March which has a 1.2L engine but packed with 6 airbags and the only thing I am sure is of quality in that car is the lug nuts on the wheels because it is yet another horrendous story to tell and at $133k, I think not.

the elantra is excellent but it still have some cheap materials inside and very unimpressive interior space for a compact vehicle (pretty much the only one) boasting a 2700mm wheelbase. That is mid-size car territory before. I guess that is the trade off you get but for 209k I would buy it. How is the fuel economy crix?
