Toyota Camry facelift now in Indonesia, new 2.5L engine joins hybrid line-up

After Singapore, Indonesia is the next country to introduce the facelifted Toyota Camry, even ahead of the region’s biggest producer of Toyota vehicles, Thailand. The line-up continues to be limited to just the 2.5-litre petrol and the 2.5-litre self-charging hybrid variants.

Exterior changes in the scope of the design refresh only see minor styling tweaks to the front bumper, radiator grille and rim design, with the rear-end of the new Toyota Camry untouched.

Positioned as the flagship variant, the new Toyota Camry 2.5 Hybrid in Indonesia also features a tilt-and-slide moonroof, 360-degree surround camera system and Toyota Safety Sense ADAS suite.

Inside, the dashboard sees a reconfigured centre console with a new floating 9-inch infotainment display and air-conditioning switch panel. Standard features in the Toyota Camry Hybrid include Nanoe air purifier, JBL Sound system and an executive rear seat package that includes a digital controller for the seatback adjustment and the front infotainment system.    

Newly added in the facelifted Toyota Camry Hybrid is the Toyota T Intouch smart telematics connection.

The fourth-generation self-charging hybrid system for mid-sized vehicles sees the A25A-FXS 2.5-litre engine with Dynamic Force design paired with Toyota’s dual-motor-generator layout to deliver a total of 211 hp whilst returning a fuel consumption figure of just 4.4 litres per 100 km. 0 to 100 km/h is reported to be dispatched in 8.3 seconds.

Unlike the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid with the hybrid battery being placed behind the rear seats making the boot impractically shaped and sized, the new Toyota Camry Hybrid built on the TNGA platform has its Ni-Mh battery pack placed under the rear seats, resulting in a large boot space of 524 litres.

Toyota Motor Indonesia has also updated the Camry 2.5V petrol variant, ditching the older 2AR-FE engine that also continues to be available in Malaysia, with the latest A25A-FKS Dynamic Force engine and paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Power outputs sees a huge jump, from 184 hp/235 Nm to 204hp/243 Nm.  

Continue to be fully imported from Thailand, the new Toyota Camry Hybrid is retailing from IDR767 million (approx. RM223k) which is an increase of over IDR45 million. The regular petrol variant meanwhile gets a price tag starting from IDR637 million (approx. RM185k), an increase of IDR 30 million, with both prices inclusive of a new CO2 emission-based taxation scheme.
