Available with FWD, AWD and hybrid four-cylinder engines, this design package features a black grille with aggressive mesh inserts, adopted from the Camry TRD model. For complementary accents, there is also a rear spoiler, mirrors, lid, and black exterior emblem. A new touch comes from the black framed headlamp and taillights. The Camry Nightshade uses 19-inch alloy wheels on all four legs with a matte bronze finish, while the SE variant has sport-tuned suspension.
There are no significant changes to the interior and the only technical modification was made to the suspension, which was tuned to feel sportier.
For the hybrid model, the new Camry is ready to provide a combined fuel efficiency rating of 22 kmpl as well as five similar trim variants. Then, there are also three top-range V6 models, namely the XLE, XSE, and performance TRD.
As for the engine, this sedan with a safety rating of Top Safety Pick+ from IIHS provides a choice of a standard 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine producing 203 hp and an optional 3.5-litre V6 engine with an output of 310 hp. The engine will come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. As for the hybrid version, it relies on a 2.5-litre Atkinson engine with a combined power output of 208 hp.
