Toyota will be looking to re-enter the premium sedan segment with the Camry. The Camry, currently in its 8th generation, was recently launched in various markets abroad. Toyota have revealed the launch date for the vehicle, that is, on the 18th of January next-year.
Ahead of its India launch, the Camry was recently teased by the automaker. The teaser shows the Camry in a red paint scheme along with blue accents on the badging, which showcases its hybrid characteristics. We can also see a new and attractive looking design synonymous with various Toyota and Lexus models sold internationally.
The Camry will be underpinned by Toyota’s New Global Architecture (GA-K) platform, seen on models like the Lexus ES. It will be available with features like a new touchscreen infotainment system, reverse camera, sunroof, larger alloy wheels, automatic climate control, reclining rear seats and so on. Coming to its safety, the Camry will come equipped with 8 airbags, ABS with EBD, cruise control, blind spot detection, lane departure warning and safety exit assist.
Engine-wise, the Camry will be employing a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder, petrol engine. This engine is capable of delivering 174 BHP of power and 221 Nm of torque. There will be a 116 BHP producing hybrid motor, with the total power output tallying to 205 bhp.
We can expect the new Camry to be priced at around Rs. 25-35 lakh, which would make it a good pick amongst competitors. These include the Skoda Superb and the Honda Accord. India has been a good market for the Camry over the years, so we can expect the new model to cash in on the success enjoyed by its predecessors.
