Facelifted Toyota Camry unveiled, coming early 2021

Toyota has taken the wraps off its facelifted Camry sedan featuring a rejigged front-end styling and an updated interior with improved ergonomics.

Set to arrive in the first half of 2021, the updated Camry brings a bolder, stronger-looking grille along with a restyled front bumper to give the car a more imposing road presence.

Inside, the 2021 Camry also receives a slightly revised dash design; most notably with a larger freestanding touchscreen infotainment system. High-spec models also get a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.0-inch head-up display.

Toyota will continue to offer a mix of hybrid and petrol engines with the Camry Hybrid expected to make up the bulk of the sales.

In the first six months of this year, the Camry Hybrid accounted for 63 per cent of all Camry sales, making it the highest percentage of any model in the Toyota line-up.

The Camry Hybrid will be further improved next month with the current 245V nickel metal hydride battery for the 2.5-litre petrol electric drivetrain to be updated with a more efficient 259V lithium-ion battery.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said over the course of the past 37 years, the Toyota Camry had grown and developed to become Australia’s favourite family sedan that epitomised the core strengths of Toyota vehicles.

“Toyota’s reputation for quality, durability and reliability has long been a hallmark of Camry, which together with its strong and efficient powertrains, advanced safety technology and in recent years, its hybrid drivetrain, has ensured its enduring appeal for Australian customers,” Mr Hanley said.

“This latest facelift delivers a stronger look that further emphasises the car’s stylish aesthetic, along with the sort of safety and convenience technology that is demanded in today’s cars,” he said.

The 2021 Toyota Camry’s full specs and pricing will be revealed closer to launch.
