2017 Toyota Camry is Officially Here in Malaysia. Two New Variants, From RM153k

UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd has announced the addition of two new variants for the Toyota Camry range as well as upgrades for the existing variants.

As we mentioned earlier, the introduction of the new variants (Camry 2.5 Hybrid Premium and Camry 2.0 GX) now brings the amount of Camry variants to four, which are:

  • Camry 2.5HV Luxury - RM174,900
  • Camry 2.5HV Premium - RM164,900
  • Camry 2.0G X - RM159,900
  • Camry 2.0E - RM152,900

According to Toyota Malaysia, safety has been improved across the Camry range, with features such as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), and 7 airbags now being offered as standard.

All variants also have an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system which is connected to the hazard warning lights.

Exclusive to the top variant (Camry 2.5 Hybrid Luxury) is a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) which keeps the driver informed of vehicles that may be in the blind spot adjacent to the car.

Also exclusive is the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) which can reduce the possibility of an accident when reversing out of a parking spot. The system uses sensors that cover a wide area behind the car to detect approaching vehicles on the left and right sides.

Inside the latest Camry range, there are also enhanced features for more convenience or comfort, such as a more premium audio system with 12 JBL GreenEdge speakers and 5.1 channel surround system. 

The Wireless Qi charger which was only available with the top variant is also available in the Camry 2.0G X. This convenient charger uses a pad located between the front seats. Compatible smartphones with wireless charging capability can be placed on the pad and will be recharged without having to connect any wires.

The upholstery for some variants has also been upgraded or changed to refresh the appearance and ambience of the cabin. While three variants have black interiors, the new Camry 2.0G X has dark brown upholstery and Mughal Teak wood trim. The other variants have different wood trim patterns, all of high quality and inserted with the highest standards of craftsmanship.

The two Camry Hybrid variants come with a Driving Video Recorder (DVR) as standard to record the view ahead while driving. The recording may be useful evidence in the event of an accident and a special function will lock the relevant video file if there is an accident. The DVR is also available as an option for the Camry 2.0G X and 2.0E.

On the exterior, the updated range does not have any major changes but the Camry Hybrid variants are now fitted with a LED fog lamps as standard. The alloy rims remain the same as before with the Camry 2.5 Hybrid Luxury and new Camry 2.0G X having 17-inch rims while the Camry 2.5 Hybrid Premium and Camry 2.0E have 16-inch rims.

All Camry variants come with a 5-year warranty, subject to terms and conditions. The battery pack for the hybrid variants on the other hand has a separate warranty of 8 years.
