India-bound 2018 Toyota Camry revealed
Toyota has taken the wraps off the 2018 Camry, and it is expected to go on sale in India too. The car you see here is designed for the Japanese market, and India is expected to get the same car, instead of the US-spec Camry.
Changes over the previous model include a bold new V-shaped grille and a large air dam that looks like a single-piece unit. Notice the fog lamps at the bottom ends of the air dam, a feature that's missing on the US-spec Camry. A set of crease lines on the bonnet enhances the look of the car, and so do the LED headlamps. Overall, the front end looks a lot more youthful than the previous Camry.
The side profile features sharp creases and a kink over the rear wheel arch which, again, is a poles apart from the boring, almost-slab-sided profile of the old car. The rear end looks a lot better too, with its large wrap-around lights, and crease lines that cut across the C-pillar and merge with the line that wraps around the boot. Overall, the design is a lot more youthful and sophisticated than the previous Camry's bland styling.
The interiors receive an overhaul too and carry the same styling cues that you see on the outside. There's a nice mix of wood and chrome around the cabin, but what catches your eyes is the centre console and the swooping lines around it.
The Camry gets a 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol motor that's mated to a CVT transmission. India will also get the hybrid variant.
The Camry has built quite a good reputation over the years as a luxurious and reliable sedan, with great back seat comfort, making it ideal chauffeur-driven car.
