Heading into its sixth year in the Malaysian market, the Toyota Camry has been given a mild update, bringing in a couple of minor interior trim changes at no extra cost, as well as a wider range of optional accessories.

All models now get carbon wood trim, with the range-topping Hybrid Luxury model receiving Kogane (Japanese for gold) leather upholstery as well. Buyers can also now specify USB charging ports at RM212 and auto-folding door mirrors at RM371, along with a RM2,650 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) on the 2.0G X model – these items have also been introduced on the Corolla Altis and the Vios.

Otherwise, kit count remains identical, with the base 2.0E coming with xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, fog lights, LED tail lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone auto climate control, a 4.2-inch multi-info display, fabric upholstery, manual seats, a radio/CD player, six speakers and a portable tyre pump.

The Hybrid Premium model adds LED headlights and fog lights, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, rear window blinds, cruise control, a digital video recorder (dashcam) and solar and security tinting. The 2.0G X goes back to xenon headlights, but throws in 17-inch alloys, a Qi wireless charger and a 2-DIN infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen, a reverse camera, Bluetooth and a DVD player.

Lastly, the Hybrid Luxury brings automatic LED headlights, auto wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a nanoe air ioniser, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, a built-in infotainment system and a 12-speaker JBL GreenEdge sound system. All models get seven airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).

The mechanicals are unchanged, too, with petrol models getting a 167 PS/199 Nm 2.0 litre VVT-iW engine with D-4S direct injection, matched to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The Hybrid variants pair a 160 PS/213 Nm 2.5 litre VVT-i Atkinson-cycle mill with an electric motor to produce a total system output of 205 PS.

As mentioned, there’s no change in price, so the 2.0E retails at RM148,600, the 2.0G X at RM155,400, the Hybrid Premium at RM160,200 and the Hybrid Luxury at RM169,900. All prices are on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and, on the Hybrid variants, an eight-year battery warranty.
