The Make over to the interiors is a major one ,but Toyota being Toyota when the car becomes available over here it will be close to the 3/C/A4 range with the Minor face lift.

H may be as reliable as the T but the cost of maintancace and spares are higher on the H but the cost of the car seems to be lower for the H(Not in DXB but in india) and the quality of service ? Don't want to start another Honda Vs Toyota Service comparison.

the thai version looks delicious!!! wish toyota gets some sense knocked into em and they lose their 'conservative' approach towards our market taking cues from its arch rival honda.. toyota (in India) always seem to avoid any competition with honda, even with the altis they chose to stay conservative rather than going radical like the civic.. wud've loved the altis with some good body kits and a backlit panel on the dash (a la camry).. on the other hand according to ACI they're managing to beat the civic in terms of sales no.s by a huge margin! wonder what would be the scene like if toyota decides to go full throttle in our market!

Get which ever model Toyota want to get.The important part is to get the pricing right. The car is way to expensive compared to competition..And its not really a comfortable car even at that price.

I beg to differ, the Camry is way more spacious and comfortable than the C/3/A4

The Malaysian model looks like "Toyota Camry Chrome" to me! Too much shiny...

Camry's are dependable but overpriced in India. Don't know if this minor facelift will boost sales...

sahil space does not mean comfort. And leave alone C/A4/3 ,the camry is not even as comfortable as the sonata embera.Infact even the skoda superb in more comfortable.I say this beacuse i have all three.Front seats of the camry i can still live with but the rear seat is an absolute mess.We travel extensively sometimes clocking close to 9000 kms a month. And we dont really prefer taking the camry.

that can be subjective. i found the rear seat of the camry very comfortable. of course the superb is better but the camry is still more comfortable than the c/3 but i dont know about the new a4. they need to add more features to it. that is where the superb, passat score over the camry.

What are those new colors called. Do these new colors really sell well out side India, because in India everyone seems to prefer Black and white?

Now the front resembles more to Altis, even inside, the steering controls, whole steering, OVRM controls, cruise control are same as in Altis. But this one has got push button start.

What kind of RPM meter is in the picture? Or is it something else.

Akshay may be the camry is more comfortable then the new c or the 3.I dont have them so i done really know. Its no doubt a bigger car then either of the two.What i dont like about the camry's rear seat is the angle of the rear seat.Also the rear seats have a sitting position which is a tad too low.

It would look similar to the Altis since the latter was derived from it in the first place. Maybe they're going for a single look for their entire range like Acura did a while ago.
