Moscow Live – 2015 Toyota Camry (India-bound)
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The 2015 Toyota Camry for the international markets has made its global premiere at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon (Moscow Motor Show 2014) today.
The D segment sedan, though sitting on the same platform, is a lot different than the facelift of the sportier US-spec version that debuted at the New York show earlier this year. The refreshed Camry’s front fascia has been given a comprehensive makeover which involves an hexagonal chrome-lined grille with parabolic slats.
The revised headlamp houses LED daytime running light elements and has a pronounced kink where it meets the grille. A striking secondary air dam with integrated foglights rounds off the front end design. The silhouette of the car is retained while the rear fascia gets minor updates like a reprofiled bumper.
Inside, a new three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and a redesigned instrument console bring about the change. The centre console gets a minor revision and that’s where the changes end.
The existing sedan’s engine lineup is retained, meaning you get a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol and a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine. The former is also available in a hybrid guise.
