IAB Report – (India-bound) 2015 Toyota Camry facelift teased ahead of Moscow debut


Nithyanandh K, 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!

Powertrain changes not expected.

After premiering the US-spec 2015 Toyota Camry at the New York Auto Show in April this year, Toyota (Russia) has teased the international version that is expected to make its world debut at the Moscow Motor Show next week. Both versions share a common platform but are significantly different in looks and driving dynamics.

The teaser image shows the front fascia which is very different from the sporty US-spec sedan. The headlamps house projector and LED daytime running light elements. The front grille is visible only partially but it can be noticed that it is an evolution of the existing car’s design.

New bumpers, wheels and subtly reprofiled combination lights should round off the exterior changes. Parts of the interior may also get a nip and tuck.

The powertrain lineup is very likely to not change. The Indian Camry is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine producing 181 PS (178.45 bhp) and 233 Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Camry Hybrid, using the same engine, delivers a combined power output of 205 PS (202.11 bhp) and 270 Nm of torque.
