Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has launched the all-new Camry. Assembled at a separate assembly line within TKM’s second plant located at Bidadi, near Bangalore in Karnataka, the car was first introduced in 2002 in India as a CBU import. The new car, a seventh generation model, displays a distinct departure from the styling of the earlier generation Camry.
Attractive and contemporary in its appearance, the all-new Camry is claimed to offer the best-in-class cabin space, and a luxurious and quiet ride. In competition with the likes of Honda Accord and Volkswagen Passat, the new Camry is powered by a 181PS, 2.5-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine. Power is fed to the front wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission with a sequential shift. Priced at Rs23,80,000 (ex showroom Delhi), the car is available in four vibrant colours – white pearl crystal shine, silver metallic, attitude black and beige metallic.
Speaking at the launch of the car in Delhi, Mr. Hiroshi Nakagawa, Managing Director announced, “We are extremely happy to introduce the 7th generation, All New Camry. The vehicles are the latest addition to our fleet of domestically manufactured vehicles. This further reinforces the growing importance of TKM in Toyota’s global operations. The New Camry is currently being manufactured in 10 plants across the globe and TKM will be the 11th one. The local production of New Camry of global standards will mark an important milestone in the history of TKM.”
