Toyota Thailand has revealed that the all-new, eighth-generation (XV70) Camry will be launched in the kingdom on October 29, 2018. This comes months after the D-segment sedan was spotted in the country all wrapped up but confirming a departure from the previous two-look strategy.

The teasers posted on the company’s official Facebook page and website do not give away much in terms of details, except for the obvious fact that the Camry rides on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) which also underpins the Prius and C-HR.

As such, information about what will go under the hood remains a mystery for now. Possibilities include a 2.5 litre four-cylinder (A25A-FKS) from Toyota’s Dynamic Force Engine range, which makes 208 PS and 252 Nm, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

A hybrid powertrain is also available for the Camry, also with a Dynamic Force Engine (A25A-FXS) that makes 178 PS and 221 Nm, along with a 120 PS/202 Nm electric motor for a total system output of 211 PS. The e-motor is powered by a lithium-ion/nickel-metal hydride battery, which is now placed beneath the rear seats rather than in the boot for a lower centre of gravity.

Other engine options include the familiar 2.0 litre 6AR-FSE (167 PS/199 Nm) and 2.5 litre 2AR-FXE on the Camry Hybrid (total system output of 205 PS), with both four-cylinder engines currently being offered on Camry models sold in Malaysia. A 2GR-FKS 3.5 litre V6 with 305 PS and 362 Nm can be had in other markets like Australia and the United States, but will most likely be given a miss for the Thailand market.

While the engine line-up isn’t confirmed, the new Camry will come with a bolder styling approach that is emphasised by the ‘Keen Look’ front fascia as well as a revamped interior. There’s also significantly more tech too, with a large suite of safety and driver assist systems available, including autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and others.

We’ll find out more when the Camry finally makes its launch debut in Thailand in just a few days’ time. How many of you are eagerly waiting for the model to come to Malaysia? Will you prefer it to the latest Honda Accord, its closest rival?
