Toyota Camry 2.0 G X_01

UMW Toyota has released full details and pictures of the new Camry variant, the Toyota Camry 2.0 G X. ‘X’ stands for ‘Exquisite Luxury’, apparently. White Pearl CS, Attitude Black, Silver Metallic and Medium Silver Metallic are the available body colours – same as on the other three variants.

Head and tail lamps get a smoked look, and there are dark silver 215/55 R17 alloys from the more expensive Camry 2.5 V. On the boot lid, an ‘X’ badge marks the spot.

Inside, you’ll find exclusive dark brown leather upholstery (locally sourced and supplied, no less), dark wood trim, ‘Camry X’-branded front carpet mats, a powered rear blind and manual rear side window blinds. The last two were previously exclusive to the Camry 2.5 V.

A seven-inch DVD-AVN touch-screen system (a RM2,990 option on other 2.0 litre variants and RM1,800 on the 2.5 V) is standard here. It offers Bluetooth, navigation, reverse camera display with guide lines, DVD, USB, SD and Smartphone Link that works with selected mobile phone models.

Mechanically, the 2.0 G X shares the same 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine and four-speed auto as the 2.0 G. Also similar to the 2.0 G is the safety equipment – two airbags, VSC and TRC (base 2.0 E loses out on the last two safety features).

The five-piece aerokit pictured here remains a RM2,700 option, along with Toyota Premium Security and Solar Film, which costs another RM1,900.

The Toyota Camry 2.0 G X is open for booking, and is listed at RM159,900, on the road with insurance – just shy of a RM1,000 premium over the 2.0 G, but much cheaper than the 2.5 V. Included is a three-year/100,000 km warranty.
