Toyota Camry details emerge ahead of H2 launch

All-hybrid new Camry to arrive in Australia from H2 2024 with upgraded tech, safety

13 May 2024

TOYOTA Australia has released details of its forthcoming Camry facelift, the hybrid-only offering due in local showrooms from the second half of this year with new technology and safety offerings, and an ‘enhanced’ fifth-generation 2.5-litre petrol-electric driveline. 
With revised ‘Hammer Head’ looks, the three-variant Toyota Camry range will comprise Ascent, Ascent Sport, and SL grades with the mid-tier SX grade discontinued. 
Toyota says the new Camry brings ‘significant’ upgrades across the board with the latest active safety technologies offered across the range plus further improvements in suspension, claimed to promote enhanced handling. 
Other technology updates include Toyota's latest multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as standard on all variants, accessed through 8.0-inch and 12.3-inch infotainment arrays depending on trim level. 
Two additional USB-C ports are provided for rear passengers and expanded Toyota Connected Services functionality, including remote HVAC control, will be included. 
Importantly, the Camry now receives Toyota’s latest Safety Sense range of active safety technologies which are understood to be comprehensively upgraded for the model-year change. 
Front and rear brake support, blind-spot monitoring, safe exit assist, rear cross-traffic alert, driver monitoring, and emergency driver support systems all find their way into the entry-spec Ascent grade, along with improvements to the pre-collision and active cruise control systems. 
Toyota says passive safety is also improved by the addition of front and rear parking sensors and a 360-degree camera system “to make parking easier”. 
The 2024 Toyota Camry Ascent also arrives as standard with new-look 17-inch alloy wheels, LED head- and taillights, cloth seats, dual-zone climate control, 7.0-inch digital driver’s display, automatic power windows, and an electronic parking brake. 
Mid-range Ascent Sport adds a larger 12.3-inch infotainment screen with native sat-nav, a wireless phone charger, high-grade LED headlights, daytime running lights, and tail-lights, a self-dimming rearview mirror, leather steering wheel rim and gear shift knob, eight-way powered driver’s seat adjustment, LED courtesy lights, and scuff plates. 
In flagship SL trim the Camry gains a digital rear-view mirror, heated steering wheel, rear privacy glass, leather-accented upholstery, rear camera washer, air purification technology, newly styled 18-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, heated wing mirrors, powered steering column adjustment, a panoramic sunroof, and head-up display. 
The flagship variant further includes heated and ventilated front seats, eight-way powered passenger seat adjustment, paddle shifters, and a nine-speaker JBL-branded audio system replacing the six-speaker setup found elsewhere in the line-up. 
“The move to a hybrid-only Camry range reflects the popularity of hybrid with customers, who appreciate the impressive fuel consumption, smooth driveability and agile performance they provide,” said Toyota Australia vice president of sales, marketing, and franchise operations Sean Hanley. 
“Camry is proof that there is still a market in Australia for sedans, especially when they offer the value, efficient performance and good looks buyers are after. 
“Combined with the increase in safety equipment and technology, the space, comfort and reliability of the new Camry range ensures it will continue to resonate with private and fleet buyers alike.” 

More details on the new-generation Camry including local pricing will be made available closer to its Australian introduction in the second half of 2024. The current Toyota Camry range is priced from $35,051 plus on-road costs with the hybridised range commencing at $37,917 + ORC.
