Toyota has officially unveiled the facelifted model of its luxury saloon Camry ahead of its launch in European markets as well as Asian markets. The sedan was recently modernized in the US and is now being shipped to Europe and the sedan will be carried to Asia with same host and features that has been updated in US and Europe. It features a host of cosmetic as well as feature upgrades over the outgoing model. Along with the exterior changes, you also get an updated cabin with additional technology for passenger comfort while you are on the board.
The mid-cycle update for the Camry focuses primarily on cosmetic changes to make the car look refreshed and reworked. The updated Camry has a slightly remodeled bumper, with a new design on its inserts that gives it a similar look to those seen on the next-generation Corolla sedan. That Corolla sedan was not sold in the Nepalese market though. The sedan's side profile features updated wheels: 17-inch and 18-inch options. At the rear, the new Camry has been redesigned for the LED taillight. These are the main exterior changes implemented on the 2021 Toyota Camry.
On the interior, the 2021 Camry gets a larger 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that replaces the older 8.0-inch unit. Toyota claims the new system responds better thanks to updated software. The standard Camry safety package includes lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, road signal assist as well as junction turn assist which detects vehicles or pedestrians crossing the car's lane when turning at a junction. Talking about powertrain, it still gets its power from the 2.5-liter four-cylinder Dynamic Force petrol unit with an electric motor. The hybrid powertrain produces a combined output of 215 hp and 221 Nm of torque.
The updated Camry will go on sale in Europe early next year. In Asia, Malaysia is expected to receive the new executive sedan first in mid-2021, followed by the launch on other Asian markets. The Camry facelift in Nepal is likely to come next year, though there’s no confirmation from the carmaker has to exactly when it’ll arrive. The Toyota Camry Hybrid goes up against the Skoda Superb in our market.
