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.
