Currently there are no plans of bringing in a diesel-powered Camry and the company believes that the petrol variant will sell based on the high reliability quotient that the Camry enjoys world-wide. Toyota will offer only one variant of the Camry to compete against the rivals like the Honda Accord, Skoda Superb, Hyundai Sonata and Volkswagen Passat. But compared to the rivals Toyota Camry’s pricing is more expensive despite being a CKD unit.
On the safety front, the car is loaded with ABS, EBD, ESP and 6 airbags as standard equipment. The Camry also gets 8-way adjustable driver seat with lumbar support and steering mounted multi-function controls. The car is now open for booking with Toyota dealers across the country at a booking amount of Rs. 50,000.
