The new 2019 Toyota Camry will be heading to the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) next week, as revealed through a Toyota Malaysia Instagram post. Specifications and pricing have already been announced for the eighth-gen Camry, which will be sold here in a single 2.5V variant form at its point of introduction.

To recap, the Camry is priced at RM189,900 on-the-road excluding insurance, although this is still classified as “estimated,” so the final figure may yet be revised.

The Malaysian-spec XV70 – which sits on the automaker’s Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform – is equipped with the 2AR-FE 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine from the outgoing Camry, though it now has four PS more at 184 PS and 235 Nm. The six-speed auto has also been retained.

Exterior kit includes automatic bi-LED projector headlamps and LED turn signals, daytime running lights, fog lamps and rear lights as well as 18-inch wheels (wrapped with 235/45 series rubbers), auto wipers and dual exhaust tips. Six colours are available for the car – Red Mica, Platinum White Pearl Mica, Silver Metallic, Graphite Metallic and Burning Black CS GF.

The interior, meanwhile, is dressed with “smooth leather” upholstery and eight-way powered front seats as well as memory power adjustable steering, an eight-inch capacitive touchscreen display with navigation, a 10-inch colour head-up display (HUD) and a seven-inch colour multi-info display housed between two Optitron dials.

The kit list also includes a nine-speaker JBL audio system, an electrochromic rear view mirror, keyless entry and push start, electronic parking brake (with auto brake hold), dual-zone auto air con with rear vents, wireless smartphone charger and a digital video recorder (dashcam).

Safety equipment includes seven airbags, front/rear parking sensors, hill start assist, blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert and a raft of systems grouped under the Safety Sense suite, among them pre-collision system, lane departure alert with steering assist, dynamic radar cruise control and automatic high beam.
