Toyota has unveiled the all-new ninth-generation Camry sedan, set to be available internationally next year, beginning with the North American market. Featuring a fresh design inside and out, the new Camry is exclusively offered with a petrol-hybrid powertrain.
Built on the TNGA-K platform, the ninth-gen Camry maintains a familiar look, sharing similarities with its predecessor. The exterior showcases Toyota’s distinctive “hammerhead” front styling, aligning it with models like the Crown sedan and the latest Prius. Inside, the Camry boasts a revamped dashboard layout with two digital screens—a 7-inch screen for instrumentation and a 12.3-inch touchscreen system for infotainment. Higher variants include features like a JBL sound system, heads-up display, digital key, and other tech-related enhancements.
Under the hood, the new Camry ditches the V6 engine and adopts a single petrol-hybrid powertrain. It comprises a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine paired with two electric motors, delivering a combined output of 225hp. The Camry hybrid AWD variant adds a rear axle motor, increasing the total output to 232hp. The hybrid powertrain employs an eCVT gearbox for shifting.
While the powertrain options are streamlined, customers can choose from different suspension setups based on the variant they select. Safety features include multiple standard airbags and Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 package, encompassing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, road sign assist, and automatic high beams.
Regarding the India launch, the new-gen Camry is not expected anytime soon, with a potential market introduction in the second half of the following year.
