UMW Toyota Motor has finally launched the new and improved 2022 Toyota Camry, which now comes with a new engine, new gearbox, improved safety as well as a few other significant upgrades.
Priced from RM199,109.50 (with 50% Sales & Service Tax exemption and without insurance), the new 2022 Toyota Camry is still underpinned by the same TNGA Platform as before, but the powertrain has been replaced by a new 2.5-litre naturally aspirated Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine that produces 209 PS and 253 Nm of torque, which is a 25 PS and 18 Nm bump from before. Also new is the Direct Shift 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Imported from Thailand, the 2022 Toyota Camry Facelift which will only be available in one variant, now comes with redesigned bumpers, Bi-LED Projector headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and newly designed 18″ Alloy Rims. For extra peace of mind, its automatic headlamps now come with the Follow-Me-Home function.
Inside, the main highlight is the addition of a control panel within the centre armrest which is a first in the Camry’s segment.
Thanks to the control panel, rear passengers can now easily recline their seats, adjust the rear tri-zone air-conditioning system and sun-shade, as well as seamlessly control the audio system with the touch of a button.
The infotainment system has also been upgraded with a new 9-inch Display Audio that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Ready capabilities, as well as nine JBL speakers including a subwoofer for the ultimate listening pleasure.
The new central display is also positioned higher above the centre air vents, closer to the driver’s line of sight for increased visibility and easy access to audio function.
Safety features include Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) with Pre-Collision System (PCS) and increased recognition capabilities that can also detect pedestrians and cyclists, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Keeping System and Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), as well as Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Auto Brake (RCTAB).
Coupled with the new Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) and Panoramic View Monitor (PVM), Toyota’s innovation is the perfect road companion to manoeuvre through the Malaysian roads.
Last but not least, the new 2022 Toyota Camry is available in five colours including Graphite Metallic, Silver Metallic, Red Mica and its signature colours Platinum White Pearl and Burning Black, which will cost an additional RM800.
Like all Toyota vehicles, the latest Camry 2.5V also comes with a comprehensive 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage.
