Default Scoop!! A new D segment car spotted testing. New Toyota Camry??

Mod Note : The Team-BHP Toyota Camry Review has been uploaded at this link (Toyota Camry : Official Review). Please continue the discussion over on the review thread.

Which car is this?? From its size it looks like a facelifted Honda Accord. Saw it in kadrinahalli- uttarhalli road today at around noon. Tail lights were similar to Merc LEDs.

My guess- This is the new Toyota Camry. Even the Etios test cars had KA-42 TC series registration.

Watermarked the pics. Thanks for sharing

Will the new Camry be coming in with a diesel heart too? When is this due for launch?

The grill looks too straight for a Camry , it looks more like an Accord ! Both need something new to perk up the sales

This is the new Camry. You'll never find a under test honda with KA plates.

No way its a Accord. More likely a Camry looking at the dimensions and the shape of the lights.

Nice scoop by the way...

Wow the brand new Camry on test in India. This is a fantastic scoop. First time anyone has spotted this.

Let's hope toyota gets this is a CKD and not CBU route.

It is a Camry. The grill seems to be a makeshift one for testing though.

It would be a killer offering if brought via the CKD route. CKD route will surely enable Toyota to price it in the 15-20L rupee segment where it should find many buyers I feel.

And ofcourse they have to launch a diesel variant. Only Petrol cars make no sense in India's car market today.

My favorite car is here hopefully with reduced prices as forecast. Now only if they can plonk a diesel in there...

wow, nice catch man. it sure does look like the camry. if yes, then lets hope its priced to give competition to accord and superb. toyota has never been known for great designs, hope this one suits the time.

The new Camry is Accord like, The new Accord was old gen BMW like. The Sonata..... don't ask. Why do all these D segment backseat drivers have to look like one was to buy a 30-40 lakh car but, for sake of 'austerity', bought the 20 lakh one?
