Toyota has revealed the facelifted version of the current-generation Camry mid-size sedan, which is due in Australian showrooms in the first half of next year.
The Camry will once again be available with two front fascias, both of which have had their grilles and bumpers subtlety revised. Fresh sets of 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels have also been introduced.
Inside, the centre stack has been redesigned, with the touchscreen and air vents switching positions. As a result, the former now has a ‘floating’ design and measures either 7.0 or 9.0 inches in diameter.
The Mazda6 rival is now fitted with Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.5+ suite of advanced driver-assist systems, with the autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system now supporting night-time pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection as well as intersection assist.
The adaptive cruise control system now better supports overtaking slower vehicles, while the set speed can now be automatically adjusted via road sign recognition. Rear seat reminder has also been added, ensuring parents don’t leave their children behind.
While Toyota Australia is planning to release planning and full specification for the Camry closer to its launch, it has confirmed it will continue to be offered with petrol engines and a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
As such, the naturally aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder and 3.5-litre V6 units are likely to carry over, but the hybrid version of the former will be improved next month, with its 245V nickel metal hydride battery to be replaced by a 259V lithium-ion unit that’s more efficient.
