As you would already know by now, UMW Toyota’s order books for the new Camry is open. The Thai-made D-segment exec will come in three variants, two 2.0L ones and the top spec 2.5V – click here to view the brochure.
Here are pics of the Australian market Toyota Aurion, which shares looks with Malaysian bound Camrys, although there are sportier versions Down Under that have a unique front end and racier add ons, showing us what’s possible with the XV50.
Billed as an “attainable luxury car”, the Aussie made Aurion comes in five model grades, all with a 2GR-FE 3.5 litre V6 paired to a six-speed automatic. The quad-cam engine has 268 hp and 336 Nm of torque. The AT-X, Prodigy and Presara trims look identical to our sober Camry, while Sportivo SX6 and ZR6 grades have the sporty appearance featured here.
In addition to the entry AT-X’s seven airbags, seatbelt warnings on all seats, VSC dual-zone climate-control, reverse camera, 60/40 split-fold seats, MID, Eco indicator, acoustic windscreen, dual exhaust and Optitron instruments, Sportivo models add on sports suspension, 17-inch alloys, paddle shifters, sports pedals, three-spoke steering wheel, sports front seats, power front passenger’s seat, unique meters and smart entry/start.
The top dog ZR6 adds on automatic high beam, auto wipers, HID headlamps with AFS, front and rear clearance sonar, and exterior mirrors dipping in reverse.
It also sports leather, driver’s seat memory, JBL premium audio with seven-inch display, digital radio, sat nav with live traffic updates, electro-chromatic interior mirror and back-guide monitor.
