While the 2018 Toyota Camry was first showcased at the Detroit Motor Show earlier this year, this Japan-spec model is the one which will end up pn our shores. The new Camry is based on the GA-K platform, a spin-off of the Toyota New Global Architecture. Visual updates over the US-spec car are the new front fog lights and less chrome on the bumper. Inside, the Camry retains the bold new look with the chrome and wood inserts. The steering wheel, of course, has been moved to the right side.
Under the hood is a 2.5-litre four-pot petrol engine. While the Japanese market gets the Camry only in a hybrid trim, we should get a base petrol too. The engine is mated to a CVT transmission.
While the D-segment has been in a heneral decline over the last few year, the Toyota Camry has managed to hold its own, garnering decent sales numbers. We can expect the new Camry to be launched here as a locally-assembled model, with a price tag of around Rs 40 lakh.
