Nice LED tail lamps. Besides that not much to look forward too.
The new bumper make it look even more Altis like.
Most important question here is, is this enough to fight the Accord? Not at all IMO ! Until the price comes to sub 20 lakh levels, this car will never get the success it deserves.

It also gets a new 2.5 with 169 bhp and 179 bhp in other version. The fantastic 268 bhp 3.5 V6 remains.
I hope this car is coming here fast with those new motors and here it comes up with 179 bhp format.

The new facelifted Toyota Camry has been publicly unveiled for the first time at the Detroit Auto Show. Both petrol-powered Camry as well as the Camry Hybrid are on display and will begin selling in March 2009.

The car has a newly upgraded 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with VVT-I (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence). In LE and XLE grade levels it produces 169hp (126kW). A higher-grade SE model ups the grunt factor to 179hp (133kW). Fitted alongside it are two transmission choices, both 6-speed in either manual or automatic with sequential shift. A top-of-the-range model runs a powerful 268hp (200kW) 3.5-litre V6.

On the outside the Camry features a redesigned front grille and bumper, larger lower air intake, new tail lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels for LE and XLE, and larger headlights. The SE gets 17-inch wheels. Vehicle Stability Control with traction control is standard with all models.

Comfort extras for the 2010 Camry are among others, a USB port, Bluetooth, MP3 player. In addition the Hybrid comes with a newly designed instrument cluster. Seats are covered in something called Fraichir which

Where exactly did the face get lifted? Cant make out the difference.

VERY nice car, 200% dependable. Pity there are far too many of them on the roads here - you hardly notice them.

Indians in India seem to be mesmerised by the 'H' badge for some strange reason, regardless of the car that wears it. Indians outside prefer the (right) T when it comes to reliable comfort.

Same question where is the facelift ?

And i agree with Steeroid the car is 200% dependable. 2 - 3 of my friends in US are driving pre-owned camary's and they have never faced a single problem in 35000 miles of driving.

And i see Camry's daily because i pass by the TOYOTA showroom daily hehe.

That's the most negligible face-lift I have ever seen. The tail-lamps seem to have gone the Aston Martin way. The car has awesome street-presence nonetheless, especially the black ones.

Forget this facelift. They need the Thai/Malaysia Camry here. It's called the Aurion in Australia and have a look at this baby's looks:

The Thai one looks too stately and the red/black one looks smashing.
