India-bound 2018 Toyota Camry spotted in China


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

To launch in China by the end of this year.

A video featuring the 2018 Toyota Camry has surfaced online which, according to Autohome, originates from GAC-Toyota JV’s facility in Guangzhou, China. The new Camry was previewed in China by the Toyota Fengchao Fun concept at Auto Shanghai 2017.

The new Camry is confirmed for a launch in Japan and USA in the second half of 2017. The JDM-spec Camry (bound for India) measures 192.1 inches (4,879.34 mm) in length, 72.4 inches (1,838.96 mm) in width and 56.9 inches (1,445.26 mm) in height, and has a wheelbase of 111.2 inches (2,824.48 mm). It is based on Toyota’s new TNGA modular platform (GA-K version) and features aggressive design lines and elements from Toyota’s ‘Keen Look’ design philosophy.

For the U.S. market, the Camry has an all-new 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine; both paired to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The range includes a hybrid variant too, with a powertrain consisting of a 2.5-litre Atkinson petrol engine and an electric motor. The electrified variant gets a continuously variable transmission as standard.

As for the Indian market, though there is no official word, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, having used this venue for new model announcements, could reveal the all-new Camry at the Auto Expo in February 2018, before putting it on sale later in the year. The fate of the hybrid variant is doubtful, but the Camry is certain to launch with the regular 2.5L petrol engine as soon as the current model runs its course.
