This wide bodied luxury sedan from Toyota has an average ground clearance of 160 mm. This measure of ground clearance is considered less than what is required for such a car in the Indian road conditions. But, one good thing about the low ground clearance of this car is that it has a low center of gravity that allows it to take sharp bends at high speed without the fear of toppling over. which is a very good feature.

A low ground clearance can make the car prone to damages, but also has a certain benefit attached. Having a low ground clearance, allows the Camry to have a low centre of gravity, which helps to balance the car better. Especially, when taking sharp turns on high speeds, the car is much more stable and can avoid getting toppled over. This adds to the dependability of the Camry.

I had installed an anti-burglary alarm and a sound system to my Toyota Camry but noticed that the battery of my car got discharged within 3 days if the car was not started. I have removed the alarm but the problem is still not resolved. I have also replaced the battery but the case is still the same. Please suggest.
