Toyota’s launched the much-awaited facelift of the Camry Hybrid, and it’s a tad bit sportier than before. The front gets redesigned bumpers, a new grille, redesigned LED tail-lights, and now sits on new 18-inch alloys.
Inside, there’s a new 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with updated software for a quicker response along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. On the tech side of things, the Camry Hybrid is now equipped with features like lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and road sign assist among others. Moreover, it still gets a bunch of handy add ons like ventilated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and a JBL sound system.
Powering the Camry Hybrid is the same 2.5-litre naturally aspirated engine and an electric motor that sends power to its front wheels via a CVT, and the total power output translates to 215 bhp. Many might sit in the rear and enjoy the Camry’s plush ride quality, but there are paddle shifts just for that little bit of fun. Also, in that case, it’ll be a good idea to choose the Sport mode from the three modes (Eco, Normal and Sport) that are available.
Priced at Rs 41.70 lakh (ex-India), the Camry Hybrid’s a good option if you’re looking for an eco-friendly luxury vehicle.
