Why is Toyota Camry called “Big Daddy” in Nigeria

The Toyota Camry is an automobile sold internationally by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota since 1982, spanning multiple generations. … Since the release of the wide-bodied versions, Camry has been extolled by Toyota as the firm’s second “world car” after the Corolla.

The Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in America, the crown jewel of cars in the auto industry. Toyota tells us the name ‘Camry’ comes from kan-muri, which in Japanese means ‘crown.’ That seems appropriate given that the Camry outsells such popular gems as the Honda Accord and Ford Taurus.
The Camry appears to be a perfect transportation appliance, flawlessly performing its duties, never annoying its owner. It rides smoothly, softly over beat-up city streets. The interior is ergonomically excellent, with big climate and audio knobs that are easy to adjust. The seats are comfortable.

The Toyota Camry was all-new last year. A longer wheelbase brought significantly increased rear-seat legroom. Its new look is at once taller and more rounded, in keeping with current fashion.

It’s a Camry whose interior is considered unnecessarily spacious and filled with ‘nothing’. The dashboard for example, although pretty wide, has a only few buttons on it.
It’s a decent toyota nonetheless- good engine and maintenance.
