Toyota Gives 2015 Camry a Facelift for Russia

We continue our coverage of the Moscow Auto Show with the refreshed, local-market 2015 Toyota Camry that gets a visual makeover along with a new engine and updated list of options.

The Russian-built Camry, which differs from the also updated North American model, receives a newly styled front end with a protruding lower grille, similar to the one of the facelifted Corolla, new headlights and a thinner upper chromed grille.

At the back, there’s a re-sculpted bumper and a slimmer and more elegant looking chrome strip running across the entire width, with Toyota also announcing new alloy wheel designs.

Inside, the Japanese firm’s mid-size sedan gains a new backlit instrument panel with a 4.2-inch color TFT-display positioned in the center, together with a restyled steering wheel and center console with a new 6.1- or 7.0-inch screen for the latest multimedia system.

Toyota says it also upgraded the equipment list with features such as a wireless mobile charger, automatic beams and heater rear seats.

Joining the existing range of 181hp 2.5-liter inline-four and 249hp 3.5-liter V6 petrol engines is a new base 150hp 2.0-liter straight four petrol connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission that returns a 10.4 second time for the 0-100km/h (62mph) run and an average fuel consumption of 7.2l/100km (32.7mpg US).
