Aerodynamics

To improve aerodynamic performance, the following measures have been taken.

► Front and rear fairings are provided to smooth out the airflow around the tires and reduce the air resistance while the vehicle is in motion.

► The engine undercover has been formed into a step shape to increase the velocity of the air flowing underneath the vehicle. This creates a vacuum and suppresses the lift force, thus, excellent maneuverability and stability have been achieved.

► Excellent maneuverability and stability have been achieved by providing a rear floor under cover that is shaped to generate rectification and swirl effects on the rear floor (equipped with SE Grade models).

ENHANCEMENT OF PRODUCT APPEAL • PARTS WITH LOW REPAIR COST

► The plating portion of the front grille of XLE grade models has been redesigned as an individual part. As a result, replacing only damaged parts is possible, reducing repair costs.

► By reducing from 18 to 8 the number of fixing points used for installing the rear bumper cover onto the vehicle body, repair time has been shortened.

^ WASHER NOZZLE

Spray type washer nozzles are located under the engine hood to ensure good appearance. These nozzles can spray windshield washer fluid over a wide area by spraying it in a fan shape. The washer fluid volume has been reduced so as not to hinder the driver's view when washer system is operated.

Service Tip-

Spray type washer nozzles cannot be adjusted because of their structure. Do not attempt to adjust the nozzles as it could damage them.

If adjustment is necessary, adjust the nozzles after replacing them with those selected from five part numbers with different spray angles. For details, see the 2007 Camry Repair Manual (Pub. No. RM0250U).

The unified construction of the wiper blade and arm is used. A fin-shaped resin cover is used for the entire wiper blade. This ensures the effectiveness of the wipers even when traveling at high speeds.

2. Pretensioner and Force Limiter

In accordance with the ignition signal from the airbag sensor assembly, the seat belt pretensioner activates simultaneously with the deployment of SRS airbag for the driver and front passenger. In the beginning of the collision if the tension of the seat belt applied to the occupant reaches a predetermined level, the force limiter activates to control the force.

Even if the front passenger airbag is not deployed in accordance with the front passenger occupant classification system, the pretensioner and force limiter for the front passenger will be deployed.
