Earlier in the month, UMW Toyota announced that it has opened the order books for the updated Toyota Camry, which comes with added kit and two new variants. Now, one of those variants, the 2.0G X, has appeared at the brand store at Mitsui Outlet Park Sepang, and we’ve provided a full gallery here.

The new model replaces the previous 2.0G, and comes with an extra helping of equipment. On the outside, the wheels now measure 17 inches instead of 16, and come in the same two-tone design as the Hybrid. Xenon headlights, fog lights and twin exhaust exits have been retained, while the bodykit seen here is an RM3,169 option, as before.

Inside, the 2.0G X receives a new DVD infotainment system with a seven-inch capacitive touchscreen, WiFi, an internet browser, Bluetooth connectivity and a reverse camera, along with the Hybrid’s Qi wireless smartphone charger. Also included is a new dark brown leather upholstery.

These items go on top of other standard features already incorporated in the old 2.0G, including keyless entry, push-button start, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, a multi-function steering wheel, a 4.2-inch TFT LCD multi-info display and retractable sunshades for the rear side windows (manual) and rear windscreen (powered).

Power comes from an unchanged 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine with D-4S direct injection and VVT-iW. The mill develops 167 PS at 6,500 rpm and 199 Nm at 4,600 rpm, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety-wise, all Camry models now get seven airbags (including one for the driver’s knee) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), a big step up from the two airbags (and no VSC on the base 2.0E) that were previously offered on all but the top Hybrid variant. A portable tyre pump is also now standard-fit.

Elsewhere in the updated lineup, there’s a new, cheaper Hybrid Premium model, which dispenses with a few of the features from the regular Hybrid (now renamed Hybrid Luxury). These include 17-inch wheels (replaced with 16’s), auto lights and wipers, blind spot monitor and auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

Other items omitted include steering wheel wood trim, nanoe air ioniser, Qi wireless charging and the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and reverse camera. In its place sits a basic head unit from the 2.0E, and the 10-speaker JBL GreenEdge sound system has also been replaced with six speakers.

All these drop the price of the Hybrid Premium to RM164,900 on-the-road with insurance, the same price as the outgoing 2.0G. Meanwhile, the 2.0E is now RM2,000 cheaper at RM152,900, while the 2.0G X here sees a RM5,000 price drop from the old 2.0G, retailing at RM159,900. The Hybrid Luxury retains the current Hybrid’s RM174,900 pricing.
