Toyota Camry range gets navigation upgrade at lower end

By Jez Spinks, 31 Oct 2016 Car News

Toyota Camry Altise

The lower half of the Toyota Camry range is now available with satellite navigation either included or optional.

Toyota has announced the minor specification tweak just months after an update for the Camry which it will stop producing locally from the end of 2017. 

The navigation system, which also brings a 7.0-inch touchscreen instead of the basic 6.1-inch incumbent display, is now a $700 option for the base model, $26,490 Altise. While it has been made standard on the Toyota Camry Atara S, the model’s price also jumps commensurately from $29,490 to $30,190. 

There are no other changes for a line-up that also includes the $33,490 SX and $37,490 SL. 

All Camrys are powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine with 133kW, with all models except the sportier SX offered with a 151kW petrol-electric Hybrid version for a premium of between $3000 and $4000. 

In May, all Camry models were updated with Isofix child seat anchorage points, and the three Atara variants gained front- and rear-corner parking sensors. The SX received the most changes, including styling tweaks and navigation, while the SL received a wireless phone charger. 

The Toyota Camry is on track to register its 23rd consecutive year as Australia’s best-selling medium-size car.
