Just a week before we brought you the firstever spy pictures of the 2012 Toyota Camry spotted in Bangalore doing the trail-run with heavy camouflage. Now for the first time, the undisguised images of the 2012 Toyota Camry are out in the open and thanks to IndianCarsBikes (ICB) reader Anubhav Arya, for the snap.
According to ICB, Toyota was taking the car for a photo shoot like it has been doing in the past, when we could snag undisguised images or the launch of the 2012 Toyota Camry Sedan is imminent for the Indian market or someone at TKM is going to get severely castigated for having the gall to drive around town in a car which has no disguise at all. Coming to the car in itself, that the current Toyota Camry Sedan is a great car would be an understatement.
The new 2012 Toyota Camry sports many new changes to both its exterior and interior. The new car has got a improved driving dynamics and is even quieter on the inside than the current one. Coming to the interior, there seems to be plenty of wooden trim finish applied to the dashboard which gives the car a more up market feel
The car also gets 10 standard airbags: dual-stage advanced SRS front airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver’s and front passenger’s knee airbag. Some of the safety features include Toyota’s Star Safety System including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology brake-override system. It also features an electronic tire pressure monitoring system as standard.
The car will be offered in three variants and one of them is a 2.5 Litre four cylinder engine delivering 178 BHP of peak power and 230 Nm of peak torque. A 3.5 Litre V6 is also available for performance lovers and churns out 268 BHP of peak power and peak torque of 325 Nm. However, there’s absolutely no word about a diesel Camry, not even whispers, which raises a key thought in our minds, how successful is the model going to be without a diesel in the current times of rising petrol prices?
