Toyota has boosted the specification of its segment-leading Camry sedan, with satellite navigation* now standard on the Atara S and optionally available on the volume-selling Altise.

The satellite navigation system (with SUNA real time traffic updates#) brings with it a seven-inch touch-screen interface, six-speaker Digital Audio (DAB+), and voice recognition functionality.Offered as a $700 option on the Altise, the upgrade means satellite navigation is available on all Camry and Camry Hybrid models.

In May this year Camry was updated with a range of improvements, including ISOFIX attachment points for child safety seats in the rear, and higher Euro 5 standard certification for Camry petrol and petrol-electric engines.

Model-specific upgrades included front and rear corner parking sensors as standard on all Atara variants, cosmetic enhancements for the sporty Atara SX and a wireless phone charger^ in the range-topping Atara SL.

Toyota Australia executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the latest additions further enhance Camry’s appeal in the hotly-contested mid-size segment.

“Camry has been Australia’s preferred mid-size vehicle for more than two decades. It’s a family favourite that also offers clear bottom-line benefits for business owners,” Mr Cramb said.

“This upgrade reflects Toyota’s commitment to continuous and ongoing improvement of Camry’s design, quality and specification,” he said.

Toyota Camry
Every Camry has a five-star safety rating with standard fitment of seven airbags, reversing camera, vehicle stability and traction control, and anti-skid brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution.

Camry Altise, Atara S and Atara SL are available with 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol or hybrid petrol-electric drivetrains. The petrol-only Atara SX is the most agile and responsive Camry ever built due to its dynamic package that was conceived and developed locally.

The 2.5-litre petrol engine develops 133kW mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Dual exhausts on petrol Atara models lift output to 135kW. Fuel use is 7.9 litres/100km**.

Hybrid variants develop a maximum 151kW from the combination of the petrol engine, 105kW electric drive motor and electronic continuously variable transmission, sipping just 5.2 litres/100km** – a figure typical of a much smaller and less powerful car.

Camry is covered by Toyota Service Advantage with up to five standard scheduled services at $140## each during the first four years or 75,000km (whichever occurs first).
