MIRI: UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd and local authorised dealer Rimbunan Hijau Auto Services Sdn Bhd yesterday unveiled the all-new 2013 Toyota Camry.

For over the past six years Malaysia’s most popular sedan has been steadily improved and this year Toyota is proud to introduce the locally assembled 2013 Camry which retains all the strengths of its previous models plus a number of improvements, which will continue to make the Camry a popular choice in its class.

It comes in three variants, namely 2.5V, 2.0G and 2.0E and customers can choose from four exterior colours – Altitude Black, Silver Metallic, Medium Metallic Silver and White Pearl.

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), which includes Traction Control, is now a standard feature in the 2.5V and 2.0G variants.

A rigid body structure with revised front and rear suspensions and aerodynamics all help to improve safety and stability for all the variants.

While the exterior design is unchanged, the interior of the Camry 2.5V and 2.0G have now been changed to black (instead of beige) in response to customer preferences. The Camry 2.0E maintains its beige interior.

Owners of the Camry 2.0G now also have the convenience of the Smart Entry and Start System which has been standard for the 2.5V variant. This system makes locking/unlocking of the doors and boot lid more convenient while starting the engine requires just a press of a button.

A more advanced DVD Audio-Video Navigation (AVN) system is also available as an option which features a larger 7-inch touchscreen and also operates with voice commands. Besides USB media, it can also plays audio and video files from a SD card. A reverse camera is also included in the package, making parking easier and safer.

Both of its 2.5-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder 16-valve engines feature state-of-the-art Toyota’s VVTi (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence) technology which increases power, enhances fuel efficiency and reduces toxic emissions.

The new Camry comes with a 36-month/100,000-km (whichever occurs earlier) warranty.

On the road prices (in Sarawak) for the Camry 2.5V, 2.0G and 2.0E variants are RM182,084, RM160,458 and RM151,529 respectively.

UMW Toyota Motor and Rimbunan Hijau Auto Services will be holding a one-day launching of this new car today, May 31, with light refreshment and test drive available to visitors.
