On November 22, GAC Toyota responded to the online circulation of the new ninth-generation Camry "brake nod relief system payment".

Guangzhou Auto Toyota said on its official Weibo account that recently, Guangzhou Auto Toyota received inquiries from some media and customers about the new ninth-generation Camry "brake nod mitigation system". It is explained as follows: 1. The system is not a "brake". It is a function developed to improve occupant comfort in the braking process, and it effectively controls the pitch angle of the vehicle through the proper distribution of braking force between different wheels. Reduce the phenomenon of vehicle "nod", so that the brakes are smoother and can be used without extra charge. The display vehicles in Guangzhou Auto Show are trial-made cars, and the display functions of the machine screen are all test contents. 2. The system will be carried on the brand-new ninth generation Camry model, and the specific model will be based on mass production.

The thing is, at the 2023 Guangzhou Motor Show, GAC Toyota's ninth generation Camry made its global debut. Then a video of Toyota Camry brakes for a fee appeared online, and the incident sparked widespread discussion online. But in fact, the paid item shown at that time was the "brake nod relief system". When this function is turned on, the pitch angle of the vehicle can be controlled and the nod of the vehicle can be reduced when non-emergency braking is turned on.

In fact, "brake nod relief system" does not refer to the vehicle's braking system hardware, but a program, which can be understood as "comfortable brake". According to people in the industry, the "brake nod relief system" launched by Guangzhou Auto Toyota provides a comfortable driving experience for drivers and passengers through upgrading the brake ECU software and allocating braking force reasonably. the system can not only reduce the phenomenon of "nodding" caused by parking braking, but also increase ride comfort; it can also restrain the rise of rear wheels and improve safety during emergency braking. Or when driving on the top of the road, reduce the roll of the vehicle, so that the driver has a more advanced sense.

It is understood that the new ninth-generation Camry is based on the TNGA-K platform, mainly for the domestic market for localization design adjustment, compared with the current model is younger, and the whole department will use hybrid system.

Specifically, in terms of appearance, the new car mainly provides three appearance design styles, of which two sets of design styles are very similar, the main differentiated design lies in the front enclosure and fog lamp decoration, 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 grid gradient design, which is integrated with the white body, and the design on both sides is similar to the structure of the air intake, which looks more gentle.

On the side of the body, the new car is basically consistent with the old model, and the overall lines are smooth. In addition to the three-dimensional waistline, the raised lines of the rear fender also add more muscle to the new car. Rear shape, the new car does not use the popular through taillights, but still has a high degree of recognition. Among them, the sports style model uses a black strip at the rear to combine the two taillights, with a black duckling tail and a lower diffuser to further enhance the sense of movement.

The interior part is where the change of the new car is more obvious. Compared with the old model, the new car is younger and more technological. The car uses string design elements, equipped with a 7-inch full liquid crystal instrument and an 8-inch LCD screen in the center console to enhance the visual texture. The touch-type operation buttons are also designed under the control screen of the new car, which has more functions. In addition, the new Camry has joined hands with Huawei to build a new car-engine system for the Chinese market, and is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chips. the operation fluency of the car-machine system has been significantly improved compared with the old models.

In terms of power, the new car offers 2.0L fuel version and 2.0L/2.5L hybrid model, but the 2.5L fuel version is cancelled, but the detailed parameters are temporarily unknown. It is expected that the 2.0L/2.5L hybrid model will bring lower fuel economy.

As a classic model of Toyota, the Camry was born in 1982 and has a history of 41 years. It has been updated eight times and is also a volume model of Toyota. In 2022, for example, the Camry overtook the Honda Accord to become the top midsize car with sales of 242225 vehicles, which sold 220771 vehicles for the year, followed by Passat with 163532.

After entering 2023, the Camry is still at the top of the midsize car sales list. From January to October this year, the Camry sold 183000 vehicles, while Passat, Maiteng, Accord and BMW ranked second to fifth on the list, with sales of 147500, 143200, 1.4369 million and 122400, respectively, according to FIFA retail data.
