The all-new 2019 Toyota Camry, which is bigger and more luxurious than the current model, will launch here next year
The eighth-gen 2019 Toyota Camry has been spied testing in India for the first time ever. The new model, which made its world debut in January 2017, will launch in India next year
The new 2019 Toyota Camry looks bolder than the current model and has an all-new design. It is both lower and wider than the current car, which lends it a very sporty stance. The all-new design makes it look more premium, too. The new model is underpinned by the GA-K version of the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform.
The highlights of the exterior design of the 2019 Toyota Camry include a two-piece front grille that comprises of flowing thin and thick treatments, which are the key elements of the “Keen Look” design theme used for the car. The grille is flanked by bi-beam LED headlamps with multi-level stacked LED clearance lamps.
Other important bits include a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, slim LED rear combination lamps and dual exhaust with quad chrome tips. That said, the 19-inch wheels and the dual exhaust might not make it to the India-spec model.
The interior features an 8-inch infotainment unit, 10-inch (colour) head-up display and a 7-inch multi-information display (MID). The driver’s seat offers 8-way electric adjustments and power lumbar support. The interior of the 2019 Toyota Camry also gets a dual-zone automatic climate control with rear-seat vents, Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, three USB ports, and Tiger Eye wood trim.
The India-spec 2019 Toyota Camry will have a hybrid powerplant. We expect it to feature a 178 PS A25A-FXS 2.5-litre Dynamic Force petrol engine with a 120 PS electric motor. The combined power-output of the powertrain is 211 PS. The new Toyota Camry will come to us via CKD route and is likely to cost rougly Rs 40 lakh (ex-showroom).
