On November 17th, the 2023 Guangzhou Motor Show officially kicked off, and the ninth generation Camry Camry of Guangzhou Auto Toyota made its global debut. It is understood that the new Camry is based on the TNGA-K platform, and its localization design is adjusted for the domestic market, and its appearance is different from that of overseas models.
Or considering that the design of the eighth-generation Camry is too successful, the ninth-generation Camry has not made drastic changes, and some traditional elements have also been continued, but the overall look is younger than the current model. It is understood that the ninth generation Camry provides three design styles, of which two sets of design styles are very similar, the main differentiated design lies in the front enclosure and fog lamp decorations, the overall change is not obvious. From the front face, the differences between different versions of the model are mainly concentrated in the front grille of the "big mouth". One is designed for the honeycomb grid and blackened, while the air intakes on both sides are also blackened to highlight the sense of movement. The other is a diamond-shaped grid gradient design, which is integrated with the white body, and the design on both sides is similar to the air intake structure, which looks more gentle, compared with a lot of visual impact. This design style is unique to the Chinese market. Not with overseas models.
Another design highlight of the ninth generation Camry is the headlights. The upper end of the narrow C-shaped headlamp group is connected to the ribs and lines of the machine cover, which can reflect the sense of science and technology more than the old models. At the same time, the inside of the lamp group on both sides is connected by black decoration to form a penetrating design, which further enriches the sense of hierarchy.
Since the side of the body is based on the TNGA-K platform like the eighth-generation Camry, the side of the new Camry has little change compared with the old model, and it still offers a choice of monochrome and two-color bodies, and the concave line design under the D-pillar provides a certain three-dimensional sense. In the rear part, there is not much difference in the three kinds of appearance of the new Camry. Similar to the headlights, they all use a narrow and long C shape, and the sports style appearance uses black strips to combine the two taillights at the rear, with a black ducktail and a lower diffuser. The sense of movement is more obvious.
In terms of interior decoration, compared with the previous generation of models, the new Camry's design style appears to be younger and more technological, equipped with embedded dashboards and suspended central control screens, and touch-type operation buttons are also designed at the bottom of the central control screen. compared with the eighth generation Camry, the car-machine system has a certain improvement and has more functions. It is understood that the new Camry will provide four models, LE/SE and XLE/XSE, with a standard 8-inch central control screen and a high 12.3-inch screen.
It is worth mentioning that the ninth generation Camry has jointly created a new car engine system for the Chinese market with Huawei, and is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chips. the operation fluency of the car machine system has been significantly improved compared with the eighth generation model, in addition, 10-inch HUD head display, wireless CarPlay, Huawei HiCar and so on are also fully equipped.
In terms of power, as previously predicted, the new Camry offers the 2.0L fuel version and the 2.0L/2.5L hybrid model, but cancels the 2.5L fuel version, but the detailed parameters are temporarily unknown, and the 2.0L/2.5L hybrid model is expected to bring lower fuel economy.
The Camry, a classic Toyota model, was born in 1982 and has been updated eight times. In 1982, Toyota launched the front-drive model, the Camry, to replace the sixth-generation Toyota Corona and marked the official independence of the Camry line. Since then, the Camry has basically maintained the pace of every five years, and has been updated to the ninth generation of models by 2023.
Although the eighth generation Camry's "life" is coming to an end, it still has an outstanding performance in the domestic market. According to retail data, the Camry was the top seller of medium-sized cars with sales of 183000 vehicles in the first 10 months of 2023, followed by Volkswagen Passat and Volkswagen Maiteng, with sales of 147500 and 143100 respectively, compared with 136900 for Honda Accord. As for the ninth generation of Camry domestic, can it continue to continue the best-selling market performance, or as a new Accord as a short-term market crisis? We will wait and see.
