For the North American market, the LE and XLE trims receive a redesigned front-end that features a more prominent lower air intake, giving it a Toyota Avalon-inspired look.

Keep in mind that the Camry LE/XLE is the best representation of our forthcoming ASEAN market model.

The sportier SE and XSE trims (which probably isn’t for us) also receive a revised front-end with a honeycomb-style grille and side vents inserts.

According to Toyota, the biggest improvement is the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). In addition to the improved PCS, it also gets:

  • Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
  • Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Road Sign Assist (RSA)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)

Powertrain – Same Dynamic Force engines for the US

The same range of Dynamic Force engines are offered on the updated Toyota Camry, including:

  • 2.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol: 205 PS, 252 Nm
  • 3.5-litre, V6 petrol: 305 PS, 362 Nm
  • 2.5-litre, four-cylinder hybrid: 210 PS combined system output

What about Malaysia?

Toyota commenced production of the US-market XV70-generation Camry back in June 2017 at its Kentucky facility and the model was introduced in Thailand back in October 2018. 

As such, it is possible that it would take a similar, if not shorter time for the model to be introduced in this region, likely in mid-2021 or late-2021. 

A Malaysian debut should happen shortly after the model is introduced in Thailand, as the Camry is imported from there.
