Toyota Camry facelift India launch to happen on April 30th, 2015
With facelift models flooding the Indian market, we bring to you another news story from a Japanese car manufacturer this time. Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is all set to launch its refreshed Camry sedan on the 30th of April. This year’s next major launch by Toyota after the Camry will be that of the Hiace MPV.
Spied recently, the Camry facelift will be offered with interesting cosmetic changes, but will come with the similar mechanical specs as seen on the outgoing model. The Camry facelift will be powered by the same 4-cylinder, 2.5L petrol mill producing 181 PS of power and 233 NM of torque output. It will also come with the option of a 2.5-litre petrol engine paired with an electric motor which is capable of churning out 205 PS of power.
The company first showcased the updated Camry at the Moscow Motor Show during November 2014. Cosmetically changes have been made to the exterior as well as the interior of the car. Along the front, the luxury sedan gets refreshed headlamps with LED daytime running lights along with the redesigned chrome grille which makes the front all the more attractive. The Front fascia is definitely appealing with the aggressive looking bumper and circular fog lights.
Other noticeable changes come in the form of LED taillight clusters, new 17-inch alloy wheels and a chrome strip running from the front on the boot lid dividing the tail lamp into two portions. Inside the cabin, other than the four-spoke unit seen on the current model, Toyota offers the multifunctional 3-spoke steering wheel along with the Camry facelift. Additional features come in the form of a refreshed instrument cluster with blue light along its backside, 4.2-inch wide screen placed at the center console along with a bigger 6.1-inch multimedia screen. We aren`t sure if the company will offer the Qi wireless charging system on the Indian-spec model, as it is available on the Toyota Camry sold in the international markets.
Both the variants of the Camry facelift will be assembled at Toyota’s production unit in Bidadi, Karnataka. As per reports, some of the dealers mentioned that the updated Camry would be priced around INR 1 lakh higher than the current model which is available at a discounted rate of around Rs 1.5 – 2 lakhs (varies depending on its availability).
