UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd has added two new variants for its Camry range – the Camry 2.5 Hybrid Premium and Camry 2.0 GX – as well as upgrades to the existing variants.
The Camry 2.5 Hybrid Premium is priced at RM152,900 OTR while the Camry 2.0 GX is priced at RM174,900 OTR.
The New Camry Hybrid features fuel efficient high technology and has been certified as an EEV (Energy Efficient Vehicle) under the National Automotive Policy.
This entitles the model to receive an incentive from the government and the company has passed on the savings to its customers in the form of reduced prices.
Safety is improved across the Camry range with the standard provision of a number of Active Safety systems that were previously only offered with the top variant, including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), while there are now seven airbags installed (including a driver’s knee airbag) in the cabin.
All variants also have an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system which is connected to the hazard warning lights, which would activate when there is sudden and hard braking which indicates an emergency action.
The activation of the hazard warning lights will alert drivers behind that the car is stopping suddenly so they can also take action and reduce the chance of a rear-end collision.
Exclusive to the Camry 2.5 Hybrid Luxury is a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
It now also has 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.
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, and the other variants have different wood trim patterns, all of high quality and inserted with the highest standards of craftsmanship.
The two Hybrid variants come with a Driving Video Recorder (DVR) as standard, also available as an option for the 2.0G X and 2.0E.
On the exterior, the updated range does not have any major changes but the Hybrid variants are now fitted with LED fog lamps as standard.
The alloy rims remain the same as before with the 2.5 Hybrid Luxury and new 2.0G X having 17-inch rims while the 2.5 Hybrid Premium and 2.0E have 16-inch rims.
All variants come with a five-year warranty, subject to terms and conditions, while the battery pack for the hybrid variant has a separate warranty of eight years.
