Updated Toyota Camry gains enhanced specification

Fleet news logo

Toyota has updated the Camry saloon with fresh styling on the outside, more cabin comfort and higher equipment specifications.

There is a new front bumper design for added street presence and re-designed rear light clusters. Both Camry grades also have new alloy wheel designs: 10-spoke silver 17-inch wheels for the Design model and a multi-spoke design with a machined finish for the Excel’s 18-inch rims.

Inside, there’s a new leather upholstery design and the power-adjustable front seats in the Excel model gain ventilation and memory functions in addition to the heating and lumbar support that is already standard.

Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto has been made a standard Camry feature too.

Safety upgrades include the addition of Lane Trace Assist to the Toyota Safety Sense package and a location function for the tyre pressure monitoring system.

New features exclusive to the Camry Excel include a Panoramic View Monitor, giving the driver a 360-degree view of the area immediately around the car when manoeuvring in confined places; an automatic tilt action on the door mirrors when reversing; and paddle shifts mounted on the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself now comes with a heater and a memory setting for its electric adjustment.

The Excel also gains a larger, nine-inch display for the Toyota Touch multimedia system; the seven-inch screen is retained for Design grade.

Specification highlights include dual-zone automatic air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights and satellite navigation. Excel grade features include rear privacy glass, wireless charger, smart entry, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitor.

The Camry retains its 2.5-litre petrol hybrid engine.

On-the-road prices have risen to £32,260 for the Design model and £34,830 for the Excel.
