After officially making its debut in the US and then Japan last year, the all-new Toyota Camry will soon be making its way to the Southeast Asian region, based on a teaser by Toyota Motor Thailand.
On October 29, Toyota Thailand will be launching the 2019 Camry, which could presumably be the same model which we will soon be getting in the Philippines. From the looks of it though, it will look very similar to the model offered in the US and Japan which adapts the brand's new 'Keen Look' design.
From the teaser image seen on Toyota Thailand's website, it appears that the Asian-spec Camry will not be with the sport version, which is equipped with a more aggressive bumper. Instead, we will likely be getting the standard Camry which features a wide air intake running the length of the bumper coupled with slim headlights and a bolder grill.
Together with its sleeker look, the all-new Camry looks lower compared to the previous model thanks to its sloping coupe roofline. At the rear, there are slim wraparound taillights along with downward sweeping lines on the bumper to further compliment the Camry's overall design. It then rides on Toyota's new modular platform called TNGA-K.
No details have yet been released regarding the Thailand-spec Camry's powertrain. The U.S. version Camry is available with a new 3.5-liter V6, a 2.5-liter inline-four and a hybrid 2.5-liter Dyanmic Force engine with VVT-iE. The non-hybrid models are paired to a new 8-speed direct shift automatic transmission while the hybrid engine uses a continuous variable transmission (CVT). Our friends over at Headlight Magazine mention that a 2.0-liter D4-S engine with a 6-speed could also be offered.
With Thailand soon launching the all-new Camry, it won't be too long before Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) launches the Camry. At the moment, there is no word as to when that is or what engine options will be offered to the Philppine market.
