UMW Toyota Motor has released a new price list for its range of cars, and all figures are unchanged except for that of the Toyota Camry 2.5V. The D-segment sedan is now priced at RM196,888 on the road without insurance, which is RM6,988 more than the previous RM189,900. The Camry is a CBU import from Thailand.

Launched late last year at KLIMS 2018, the eighth-generation Camry sits on the current Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. No longer a sedan that can be labelled as a “uncle’s car”, the “Beautiful Monster” is longer, wider and sits lower to the ground compared to the XV50.

We get a single powertrain option of the familiar 2AR-FE 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine with 184 PS/235 Nm, paired to a six-speed conventional automatic transmission sending drive to the front axle.

Kit wise, the Camry 2.5V gets 18-inch alloys, automatic bi-LED projector headlamps with LED turn signals, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lamps and LED tail lights – all LED, basically. There’s also hydrophilic wing mirrors, leather seats with eight-way powered front seats, eight-inch touchscreen head unit with navigation, nine-speaker JBL audio system, a seven-inch colour multi-info display, Optitron dials, and a 10-inch colour head-up display (HUD).

Toyota Safety Sense is standard, and it includes Pre-collision System, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Automatic High Beam. There’s also seven airbags (dual front, side, curtain, driver’s knee), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, hill start assist, front/rear parking sensors and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Five colours – Platinum White Pearl Mica, Silver Metallic, Graphite Metallic, Burning Black CS and this signature Red Mica – are available.
