Toyota have showcased a facelifted model of their premium offering, the Camry Hybrid for Europe. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in European markets by the end of the year. The Camry Hybrid facelift carries a few significant changes both on the inside and outside as compared to its current iteration.
The exterior of the car will feature a new redesigned bumper, with the grilles on the front also receiving a few changes. Toyota provides the options of either a Black or Grey finish for the lower grille, with the upper grille available with options of Chrome and Silver. Other than that, the alloy wheels recieve a new design theme and are available in sizes of either 17 or 18 inches.
Coming to the inside, the major change comes in the form of a new 9-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system. This will replace the traditional 8-inch unit as seen on the outgoing model and will be available with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The facelifted model of the Camry Hybrid will continue to offer a long list of features to go with it.
These include powered front seats, three-zone climate control, tyre pressure monitoring system, heads-up display and an electric sunroof to name a few. On the safety front, the Camry Hybrid comes equipped with as many as 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control, Rear Parking sensors and Traction Control. Mechanically, the car will not be featuring any sort of changes whatsoever to go with the flow.
It will be powered by the same 2.5 litre petrol engine, which is mated to an electric motor. This engine makes a healthy 218 BHP of power and it is delivered to all four wheels via a CVT transmission. As of now, Toyota have not yet confirmed about when the facelifted Camry Hybrid could be available in our market.
Since it is a popular car amongst fleet operators in a few metro cities, we can pretty much expect Toyota to be considering the car for India. As per reports, we can expect the car to arrive here during the middle of 2021. When launched, it will be majorly competing with the Skoda Superb in the sub-Rs.40 lakh luxury sedan space.
