2021 Toyota Camry unveiled ahead of launch

Toyota has given the Camry sedan a minor styling and trim update for 2021, when it goes on sale early next year.

Exterior revisions for the updated Toyota Camry are limited to a new front bumper with a couple of extra vents, a reshaped radiator grille and a pair of new alloy wheel designs in either 17 or 18-inch diameters.

The revised Camry’s cabin looks almost identical to the outgoing model’s, although there are a few new trim options, including a choice of three new instrument panel finishes in either wood-effect, titanium-effect and a geometric-patterned plastic shroud. Buyers can also choose from either beige or black perforated leather upholstery.

However, the biggest change to the Camry’s interior is a new nine-inch infotainment system, mounted on top of the dashboard. It replaces the old car’s centrally mounted seven-inch screen and adds support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – compatibility the old unit was lacking.

There’s now extra safety equipment too, such as lane-keeping assist, emergency steering assist and an intelligent adaptive cruise control system, which can recognise changes to the speed limit and automatically match the car’s speed to other traffic.

Final specifications for Australian-spec revised Camry are yet to be confirmed, but Toyota has said that they’re unlikely to change much over the current model.

Prices are expected to remain consistent with the current model at around $30,000 – and first deliveries are expected to arrive next year.
