2013 Toyota Camry 2.5V & 2.0G Teased: Now With VSC & New Interior

The venerable 2013 Toyota Camry has been given a much needed update. Toyota's distributor UMW Toyota Motor Sdn. Bhd. has updated its official website with a small teaser in the Camry page, saying "Coming Soon! New luxurious black interior and enhanced safety features."

An updated price and specifications list is also available for download.

From what we can observe, both the middle range Toyota Camry 2.0G and the top of the range Camry 2.5V model has been upgraded to include Toyota's Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TC) active safety features.

TRC assists in maintaining traction while accelerating on a slippery surface while VSC assists in mitigating skidding while cornering or performing an emergency lane change.

All Toyota Camry variants now come with ISOFIX child seat anchors as standard.

On the inside, the interior of both the 2.5V and 2.0G has been upgraded with "Black Combination Smooth Leather." The outgoing, pre-improvement model Toyota Camry featured beige combination leather in the 2.5V model and while the 2.0G model had black combination leather.

On the outside, the Toyota Camry 2.0G model is now available in White Pearl CS colour, for a premium of RM800. In the past, only the Camry 2.5V was available in White Pearl CS paint.

As for convenience features, the Toyota Camry 2.0G has also been upgraded with keyless Smart Entry and Start System. Previously, this feature was only available in the Camry 2.5V model.

With a keyless Smart Entry and Start System, drivers can unlock and start the vehicle with the push of a button without having the remove the key from their pocket or handbags.

As expected, the additional features in both the Toyota Camry 2.5V and Camry 2.0G would also imply that there will be a small increase in the vehicle selling price.

The improved Toyota Camry 2.5V will carry a price tag of RM 180,917.10 (RM17.10 higher than before), on the road with insurance while the improved Camry 2.0G will sell for RM 158,915.30 (RM 1,015.30 higher than before).

Toyota sales outlets are now accepting orders for the upgraded Camry. Showroom launch is expected to take place within this month.

Note this upgraded 2013 Toyota Camry is only a model improvement exercise. It is not a mid-life facelift, which is expected to arrive late next year.

As someone who appreciates cars not just for their horsepower value but also for their cultural significance, he is interested in the art of manufacturing and selling cars just as much as driving them. Prior to swapping spreadsheets for a wordprocessor, he spent his previous life in product planning and market research.
