The model year 2012 Toyota Camry – code name (XV50), are set to capture their market of spacious, comfort and with a slight touch of luxury. All the Toyota Camry variants now comes with HID Projector headlights with auto leveling function.

This Toyota Camry 2012 2.5V has fitted in with standard aerokit with day light running LED integrated. UMW Toyota’s move is smart to keep up the market trend.  The Camry with the aerokit does stand out more when compare to the one without Camry. The aerokits are optional so customer that wish to go for the either the 2.5V , 2.0G or 2.0E variant that would love to have this additional aerokit, they can do so as an optional accessory from UMW Toyota.

Overall, the Toyota Camry looks more squarish resembling to it’s more Luxury branded cousin, the Lexus LS range. The tail lights are also fitted with a combination of LED lights for better glow thus better visibility and styling. The all round aerokit it’s more to a personally preference, some customers might find it bulky.

The dashboard looks more refine as compare to the previous generation of Toyota Camry. The 6.1 inch DVD-audio-navigation screen, in car entertainment system are available as an optional purchase. The 2.5V Camry will have additional switches as it will have the integrate Bluetooth Hands free connectivity for mobile phone and cruise control that is available in 2.0G as well.

Inside, the 2.5V and 2.0G Camry will be fitted with leather seats, where as the Toyota Camry 2.0E will be fitted with fabric seats. The seats on the 2.5V and 2.0G are electronic adjustable where as the 2.0E variant will remain as manual adjustable.

The engine of the 2.5V is powered by a 2.5L DUAL VVTI engine. This engine pushes 181PS with 231Nm torque. Mated with a 6 speed automatic gearbox. The 2.5V Camry would be a good tourer car.  However disappointingly the 2.0E and 2.0G are still using the same engine & gearbox with the past 2 generation of Camry but it is said that both engine for the 2.0L and the gearbox has been enhanced.

The manual rear window sun shades and keyless enty with push-start button are only available in the Toyota Camry 2.5V variant.

 

Colours that are available for the new Camry are, White Pearl CSAttitude BlackSilver Metallic & Medium Silver Metallic. Price ranging from RM 149,900.00  for 2.0E , RM 157,900.00 for 2.0G and for the top of the range 2.5V will be RM 180,900.00. I would personally go for the 2.5V Camry variant if i have the bucks simply because it feels more like a completely new Camry, with a new engine and gearbox & the features that is only available on the 2.5V variant.

Toyota Still World’s No.1 Automotive Brand, New Camry Will Launch By Mid-2012 in Malaysia

Congratulation to Toyota for retaining its position as the world’s top-rated automotive brand in the 2011 global brand value report from Interbrand (More details can be found at http://www.interbrand.com).

 

Improving its performance by 6% on 2010, Toyota commands 11th place overall in the annual study. Moreover, Interbrand named Toyota as the world’s greenest brand, based on a global survey in August 2011.

 

Interbrand, one of the world’s leading branding consultancies, highlighted Toyota’s achievement in meeting challenges, including the impact of the Japan earthquake and tsunami earlier this year.

 

“Even though Toyota faced both an internal crisis and an external crisis, the company forged ahead by focusing on safety and quality, modifying its leadership structure and capitalising on its world-renown green efforts,” it said.

Toyota Ukraine Reveals New 2012 Toyota Camry

01-european-camry

Toyota Ukraine has released their version of new 2012 Toyota Camry quickly after the launch in North America. We do clearly spot a front fascia that’s a good bit different than the US model.

02-european-camry 10-european-camry

The final package may be a bit more refined in style, though mechanically the two sedans remain more or less identical. Anyhow, we can’t wait and looking forward for the launch of new 2012 Toyota Camry in South-East Asia (Asean) region. Based on my sense and feeling, the Malaysian model of Toyota Camry should be similar to this Ukrainian version.


Meantime, you can now check out the photos of the all-new 2012 Toyota Camry on the below.
