Is this the next ASEAN Toyota Camry ?

The North American version of the new Toyota Camry was launched recently. Now, here are some official images of another version of the new Camry, released by Toyota Ukraine. Looking more refined than the North American version, the model has a larger grille, a different front fascia and circular fog lights, making it look like a baby Lexus LS460. This should please buyers who are looking for a car that looks more expensive than what they paid for. At the rear, changes are minor and include a restyled bumper and taillights. The side profile of both versions are similar.

Inside, the dark grey cabin has a new dashboard, metallic accents and plenty of wood trim. The controls are logically placed. The overall feel is rather conservative and I guess Toyota does not want to rock the boat too much. There are 2 engine options available for the Ukrainian market - a 2.5 liter inline 4 making 180 PS and a 3.5 liter V6 making 277 PS, both with 6-speed automatic transmission. Thank god that the new modelís transmission is finally catching up with the Koreans.

Overall, Toyota has adhered to the safe and trusted formula of the previous Camry. Perhaps it is time for a change for the Japanese automaker, looking at how the Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata have advanced. In this world, the only constant is change and it looks like Toyota has yet to internalise this well-known saying.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Same as JDM launched on 3rd September, only the JDM is using a different front fascia and fog lights. The new JDM is only come with 2.5L (2AR-FXE newly developed engine) Hybrid engine and only available in black interior.

Both the interior and the exterior looks more elegant compared to the previous camry model.

Exterior not much changes as compared to the current model. This model look likely to be the model to be launched in Singapore. A little disappointed as I felt that the JDM/US looks better.
