The all-new eighth-generation Camry was launched earlier today (January 10) at the 2019 Singapore Motorshow.
The latest Toyota Camry is built using the carmaker’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
Toyota claims it features luxurious styling and “next-level dynamic performance that is safe and reliable.”
The TNGA platform gives the Toyota Camry a lower center of gravity and a wider stance compared to the previous model.
The Toyota Camry has a more driver-centric cockpit.
The front seats have a wider shoulder area with a seat back that has a more sculpted shape.
Backseat passengers are given a wider centre armrest. Power reclining rear seats are also available.
Performance-wise, the range-topping 2.5-litre Toyota Camry is more powerful than before.
The Camry 2.0 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 2-litre inline-4 that delivers 165hp and 199Nm, which is similar to the previous model.
The top-end Camry has a new 2.5-litre Dynamic Force Engine that produces 207hp and 250Nm.
Paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, it can propel the 1.55-tonne saloon from zero to 100km/h in 9.2 seconds.
That is quick for a car with a relatively sedate reputation.
In addition to the enhanced performance, Toyota says that the new Camry is more refined than before, with new NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) countermeasures that complement a newly developed suspension system.
The new Camry is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense, a suite of safety systems that include the Pre-Collision and Lane Departure Alert systems.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which automatically adjusts the car’s speed in response to the vehicle in front, is also available.
The Camry 2.0 is currently priced at $141,988 while the Camry 2.5 is listed at $149,988. Both prices are inclusive of COE.
