1. Overview of Toyota Camry 2003 in Nigeria

The name ‘Camry’ originally means Kan-muri in Japanese, which translates to ‘crown’ in English. Toyota Camry is, no doubt, a king in its own class, and it proves this with its wider acceptance as it outsells other cars from popular brands such as Nissan, Honda, and Mazda.

Before the Camry name came to stay, the model did have different names according to the country that manufactures it, and other factors like specs and hybridization. However, the name Camry doesn’t only sound fun, it also aptly describes its performance.

The Toyota Camry 2003 belongs to the mid-size sedan category. Here in Nigeria, it is fondly called “Big daddy” as a result of its spacious interior, and bulbous but not too elaborate exterior. A model that doesn’t include a wagon option for the first time since its production started, the Camry 2003 belongs to the third generation of the XV series (XV30). The XV series was introduced into the automotive market in 1991.

The Toyota Camry 2003 was offered as a series which features an entire redesign and is equipped with advanced computerization, more optional specs which include power-adjustable pedals, fog lights, and a premium audio system. This sedan is one of our favorites at Naijauto.com. That's why today we will introduce Toyota Camry 2003 price in Nigeria together with a detailed review of this Big Daddy!

2. Price of Toyota Camry 2003 (Big Daddy) in Nigeria

New, foreign-used (Tokunbo) and Nigeria-used (second hand) Toyota Camry 2003 sedans are sold by franchise dealers and in-car marts. Here’s a list of the average prices of the three options.

Please note that these prices are not fixed. They may vary at different car dealerships, car condition, currency exchange rate and clearing cost if have.

Also, you may not be able to find a brand new Camry 2003 because the car was produced long ago. Buying a Tokunbo or Nigerian used Big Daddy is very easy though.

As at the time of its release, the exterior design of the Toyota Camry 2003 was what attracted car enthusiasts to this cute baby initially—a rounded body and feline head and rear lights that make head turn anytime it glides by.
