Recently, the all-new Toyota Camry China spec made its debut at the 2023 Guangzhou Auto Show. The new car is built on the TNGA-K platform and will continue to adopt a dual exterior design concept, with distinct style differences. As a reference, the new car will introduce four trims, namely the LE/SE/XLE/XSE version. The Camry China spec will be made by Toyota’s Chinese partner GAC-Toyota.
The new car adopts Toyota’s latest design ideas for construction, but some traditional elements have also been continued, such as the layered front face design and the overall X-shaped design style. It can be seen that the differences between the two different versions of the car model are mainly concentrated in the front grille of the “big mouth”, with one designed with a honeycomb grid to highlight the sportiness; The other is the banner trim design, which looks more exquisite.
On the side of the car, the new car has distinct muscle lines, and the waistline design is one of its biggest design highlights. In addition, the sports version is equipped with a unique sporty style wheel rim. At the same time, the XSE version adopts a roof design that is different from the body color, creating a floating visual effect
The waistline extending to the rear of the car creates a raised visual effect at the rear, giving the entire vehicle a more powerful appearance. In addition, the new car’s taillights adopt a C-shaped light source layout, which is also a common design technique in the current market.
It is understood that the all-new Camry will come standard with a 7.0-inch LCD instrument panel and an 8.0-inch central control screen. The XLE/XSE version of the car will have a central control screen size of 12.3-inch, with built-in wireless CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. In addition, the new car will also be equipped with a wireless charging panel, and the top model will integrate a 10.0-inch head up display function and a nine speaker JBL audio system. Depending on the configuration, the interior materials will also vary, for example, the XSE model is equipped with red+black leather. We also learned that the XLE and XSE models will have optional seat heating/ventilation functions.
In terms of safety configuration, the all-new Camry will be equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 Intelligent Travel Safety Package as standard, including a pre collision system that can monitor vehicles and pedestrians, adaptive cruise control, lane departure assistance, automatic high beam, blind spot monitoring, and rear warning. The XLE and XSE versions will provide additional features such as traffic congestion assistance, lane change assistance, panoramic imaging, and active braking.
In terms of power, it is understood that the new car will not release a fuel version, and the entire series will be a “powered version”. We have learned that the new car will launch a hybrid version based on a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, with two wheel drive/four wheel drive models available separately. Among them, the maximum power of the two-wheel drive version is 168 kW; The four-wheel drive version adds a drive motor to the rear axle, with a maximum power of 173 kilowatts. At the same time, we also understand that the new car will experience improvements in response speed and handling.
