The new 2011 Toyota Camry has just been unveiled, with Toyota Australia playing a major roll in its debut.
CarAdvice‘s Anthony Crawford is at the unveiling as we speak and will post a more thorough overview of the 2011 Toyota Camry shortly.
In the meantime, these are the first official Toyota Australia images. As previously reported, the new Camry features a more aggressive front end with sharper corners and deeper lower chin.
Other features included in the new front end are a set of newly-designed, slightly less conservative headlights, a larger centre grille and all-new panels with more sharply shaped bonnet contours.
From the rear, the 2011 Toyota Camry showcases new high-mount taillights and a larger rear bumper bar design that sweeps up to the boot lid. A sporty lower bumper bar also shows off a diffuser-style setup with double cutaways.
Toyota says the new Camry will be powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine bringing “more responsive performance and better fuel economy” compared with the current model. Toyota also says the new Camry will offer more interior space compared with the outgoing model, a quieter ride and a new six-speed automatic transmission.
Toyota Australia announced a new model variant would be added to the new lineup, called the Toyota Camry Atara. The Atara will be available in various trim levels while the Altise will continue to make up the entry-level range. Toyota Australia’s senior executive director of sales and marketing David Buttner said,
“The introduction of Atara reflects the added sophistication of the new range. Atara signifies that next-generation Camry will continue to lead its segment with overall specification, performance, quality and value that are appreciated by Australian motorists.”
The new 2011 Toyota Camry will go on sale in Australia in November, with the new Camry Hybrid set to join the lineup during the first quarter of 2012.
