The global-market XV50 Toyota Camry facelift has been unveiled at the Moscow motor show, following a teaser earlier in the month.
The popular D-segment sedan gets a face with added aggro, comprising a slim front grille with a big chrome bar on top, LED-infused headlamps, plus a huge trapezoidal lower intake with integrated fog lamps.
Bolder than our current car but still less so than the US-market Camry facelift, the new car also features a reshaped rear bumper and a chrome strip bridging the tail lamps. There are also new-design alloys.
Inside, there’s a new backlit instrument panel with a 4.2-inch colour TFT display between the dials, an updated steering wheel with three spokes and a restyled centre console with a new 6.1- or 7.0-inch screen. The meter panel now has a two-dial layout as opposed to the pre-facelift car’s three-dials.
As for what’s under the hood – the 181 hp 2.5 litre four-cylinder and 249 hp 3.5 litre V6 engines carry over, along with the six-speed auto box. No word on the Camry Hybrid yet.
In Russia, the base 2.0 litre engine has been updated with a version that has 150 PS mated to a six-speed auto, as opposed to the pre-facelift car’s four-speed auto. We’re not sure if the ASEAN market will get this new engine and gearbox combo.
