The Toyota Camry has been a respected model in the Indian market since the time they launched it. However, it has been a high time they brought in a face-lift for us. And look what we have! Toyota has already started the testing for its 2012 version of the Toyota Camry. Masked mules of the test vehicles were spotted by an Indian Autos Blog reader near the Bidadi plant of Toyota. However, Toyota is not going to launch the new version of the Camry before August 2012. This can be attributed to the much importance Toyota is giving to its Etios and Etios Liva. It is all known that in terms of volumes, the Etios and the Liva segment cars sell much more than those in the segment of Camry.
The new 2012 Toyota Camry sports many new changes to both its exterior and interior. From the spy shots, the front grille has been made bigger and the headlights also seem more swept back. Also it features a restyled bumper, new tail lights and circular fog lamps. Coming to the interior, there seems to be plenty of wooden trim finish applied to the dashboard which gives the car a more up market feel. The car is going to be powered by the 2.5 litre, 4 cylinder and a 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine. There is going to be an automatic option for transmission. However, there might be no diesel option coming along with it which raises a key thought in our minds, how successful is the model going to be without a diesel in the current times of rising petrol prices?
