Toyot has opened orders in Russia for a restyled version of the Camry business sedan. The model got two new four-cylinder engines, other gearboxes, an improved media system and an expanded set of driver's assistants. In addition, for Camry in Russia will be offered a "warmed up" modification of the GR Sport. Price - from 1,846,000 rubles, which is about 50,000 more expensive than before.
Both "fours" announced for the Russian ToyotCamry are distinguished by an increased compression ratio and a combined injection system. The two-liter unit, in comparison with the previously used one, develops 14 Nm more - 206 Nm with the same 150 hp. It will now work not with a six-band "automatic", but with a variator: the manufacturer claims that the changes have led to an improvement in the dynamics of the sedan by 1.5 seconds, and fuel consumption has decreased by 1.1 liters in the combined cycle.
- The 2.5-liter engine delivers 200 hp. and 243 Nm is 19 hp. and 12 Nm more than before. The engine box is also different: instead of a six-speed automatic transmission, an eight-speed unit is used. The dynamics of this version did not improve so noticeably (-1.2 seconds, 8.7 seconds to 100 km / h), but the fuel consumption decreased by 1.2 liters. It is claimed that such a Camry is able to get by with 6.8 liters of gasoline on the combined cycle.
- The top 249-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 has not undergone any changes.
It will be possible to identify the updated ToyotCamry by the modified outlines of the front bumper and other wheel disks - already in the basic configuration will be installed larger than before, 17-inch wheels. Also expanded with vibrant blues and reds for the body kit. The main change in the interior is the independently installed media system screen, which can now have a diagonal of 7 to 9 inches, depending on the configuration. In addition, the trim options have been expanded with new inserts and leather colors.
- A special version of the ToyotCamry GR Sport will receive a black body decor, two-tone paint options (white or red body, black roof), as well as 18-inch wheels, the design of which depends on the engine. The GR Sport can be equipped with either a 2.5-liter engine or a 3.5-liter V6. The only mechanical change is the inclusion in the list of equipment of the system for selecting the operating modes of the power plant. There are three of them: Eco, Normal and Sport, and the system will be installed only on the most powerful version of the sedan.
The set of driving assistants for the Russian ToyotCamry now includes a collision avoidance system that is able not only to recognize pedestrians and cyclists, but also to work when cornering at intersections. Adaptive cruise control is combined with a lane keeping system, and also learned to reduce speed when cornering. Toyot in Russia will also offer Camry a set of online services, including a mobile app with remote access to vehicle data and advanced navigation capabilities.
- Apparently, the assembly of the updated ToyotCamry, as before, will be carried out at the company's plant near St. Petersburg, although the manufacturer does not directly mention this.
