Default Spied: Next-gen 2017 Toyota Camry

Under development at Toyota's R&D facility in Michigan, USA, the all-new 2017 Toyota Camry has been caught on camera on a testing run for the very first time.

Under heavy camouflage, the next-gen Camry sits low, and seems inspired from the current-gen model's frontal looks, while the cabin size seems to be a wee bit longer and the boot section seems shorter than the current model on sale worldwide.

Expected to share the same TNGA platform as the Prius, the 2017 Camry might be powered by an all-new 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged unit (link), with a naturally-aspirated engine option and a hybrid powertrain joining the ranks later on.

The all-new Camry will go on sale sometime in 2018.

Did NASCAR just leak the next-generation Toyota Camry front end?

The vehicle designs for NASCAR competition are usually a slight exaggeration in comparison to what’s on the road. We can still use the racer’s styling as a guide of what to expect, though. The design features aggressively arched, narrow headlights with L-shaped LEDs in them. The large lower grille is similar to the current shape, but the harder edges here evoke Lexus’ spindle appearance, too. Large, diagonal intakes flank it on each side.

Letter to the Managing Director Toyota, India

Dear Sir,

Here are a few suggestions for your forth coming Camry Hybrid from a well-wisher and current customer. I (through my business) have owned and moved around in an earlier generation Camry (the first you introduced in India around 2006) for almost a decade and have only praise for the reliability of the car and quality of your service. Now onwards to the business at hand. To help the sales of this Camry 2017 in India please keep the following in mind:-

(1) The looks, the external aesthetics, the appeal to the eye - I believe somewhere in recent years Toyota has lost its way where looks are concerned and your cars do not compare favourably with other makes. I could be a customer for your Lexus range but the looks are rather frightening. So the old Camry soldiers on.

(2) Quality of interiors - if a customer in India is paying north of Rs 30 lakhs he wants top notch interiors. In December 2014 I did test drive your current Camry Hybrid. The hybrid aspect appealed to my head and heart. Your workshop was well organized. The sales chap was well trained. But the finish of the interiors and the quality of the materials lost the match in favour of the Volvo XC60.

As you see both my suggestions are to do with form and not content. Your content is already jolly good. My next car purchase will be a hybrid no matter what. I look forward to the arrival of your new model to Indian shores.

Kind regards,

Caught on camera by a Carscoops reader, who claimed that the Camry test mules were accompanied by a Lexus LC500 in front and a Toyota Prius in the rear.

Toyota plans to move the Camry to their new and lighter TNGA modular global platform, which we first saw on the latest Prius, that promises better handling.

Like many other new mid-size sedans these days, Toyota is believed to offer the 2018 Camry exclusively with four-cylinder engines in the name of fuel economy, with an updated 2.5-liter unit sitting at the base and the Lexus' 2.0-liter turbocharged mill likely placed at the top as a replacement to today’s 268hp 3.5-liter V6. A frugal gasoline-electric hybrid will round out the powertrain line-up.
