exactly @ khattak -- I wrote the same thing, ppl will see he wants to drive a merc but cant afford it whereas whence driving a 07 Camry, ppl look n say he is smart and bought the most xpensive Toyo sedan in Pk (almost most, ppl dont know about Avalon).
And yes Camry features,,, soft leather, audio and cruise on steering, cruise control, 6 speakers,maybe8 , 16"alloys w/ good tires , 2.4L engine where the Merc is either 1.8 or 2.0 in same price, and Bm will be a 2.0 or 2.2.
Camry is best in this case , value for money. Cefiro is butt ugly:P although a nice car (Y). Accord is good and even though I am a big fan of Honda and actually hate Toyota, this time Hondas Accord is WORSE than the Camry. My friend test drove them both in America and he says the Camry is better, but ended up buying the Civic:)
