Toyota Camry RZ special edition back again, with sat-nav

By Jez Spinks, 03 Nov 2016 Car News

Toyota Camry RZ

The Toyota Camry RZ is proving a special edition is not always limited edition after the Japanese brand confirmed a second production run for Australia.

Toyota Australia sold all 1100 units of the RZ released in June, and is now offering another 700 with the addition of satellite navigation.

The mapping system comes as part of a 7-inch touchscreen system with digital audio and voice activation, and it accounts for the $700 increase for the RZ, now $29,190.

Other features carry over from the mid-year RZ. They include sports suspension and more direct steering from the Camry Atara SX, 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels with low-profile tyres, styling tweaks such as a mesh grille and bootlid spoiler, dual-zone climate control, premium steering wheel, and keyless entry and engine start.

A twin exhaust system lifts power and torque to match the 135kW and 235Nm produced by the Camry Atara models – 2kW and 4Nm above the outputs of the base model Altise on which the RZ is based.

Toyota says the RZ’s extras are worth $5000 while the price tag is only $2700 above the Altise.

The company announced earlier this week that the navigation and touchscreen system had been made a $700 option on the Altise and standard on the Atara S.
