its not toyota camry but a smaller car the size of the holden commodore.
toyota would never bring something like this to our shores. there would be very few takers for it.

According to Wiki, the cars share many body panels and the basic platform is the same.

alot of cars share the same platform. porsche cayyene and the touareg, audi and skoda, toyota and lexus and a few other cars share the same platform and some body parts, which one would you call what. it is not neccisary that if you share a platform and few body parts the car becomes that model. it would be badged a different model to add to the lineup and cater to a different audiance.

The aurion is the same as the asian edition of the camry, infact i like this shape better than the one we have... saw plenty of them in hong kong last month. Saw a WALD edition which was worth drooling for.
