Toyota announces NZ prices for 2015 Camry

Toyota New Zealand has released its recommended retail prices for the new 2015 Toyota Camry range which officially goes on sale from July 1.

Prices start at $45,790 for the 2.5-Litre Camry GL petrol model and conclude at $58,290 for the top of the range Camry Hybrid Atara SL.

Two new model grades join the line up, creating seven models in the 2015 Camry range, with four model grades powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, and there are three model grades of Camry Hybrid.

The Camry Atara creates a stepping stone between the entry GL and the sportier themed Atara S in the petrol grade models and a new Hybrid Atara S variant joins the Hybrid family positioned between the GL and Atara SL.

The top grade petrol model is the Atara SX which Toyota says has an improved on-road dynamic.

The hybrid model grade names are now aligned with Camry petrol models. There’s a GL and Atara S grade Camry Hybrid and the aforementioned Atara SL luxury grade.

The Camry GL has a horizontal lower grille design that distinguishes it from the sportier honeycomb grille on the Camry Atara, Atara S and top spec Atara SX and Atara SL Hybrid.

New Halogen headlight clusters feature a mix of grade-dependent chrome or piano black accents, while all models are equipped with standard LED daytime running lights.

The exterior changes extend to the Camry’s flanks and rear, with newly designed rear combination tail lights and grade-specific bright or smoked chrome boot garnish.

Inside the cabin are updated seat fabrics in all grades, new colour combinations for the Atara SX’s leather sports seats, a newly designed three-spoke chrome-accented steering wheel featuring audio and Bluetooth hands-free phone controls, voice recognition on all Atara grades, as well as display audio systems for all model iterations.

Toyota says the Atara SX grade offers a sportier character; 18” five spoke gloss black alloy wheels and sports suspension, a sport front lower radiator grille, rear spoiler, powered leather sports seats for the driver and interior trim accents.

It also features exclusively re-tuned electronic power steering to provide for the sharper driver feedback expected from such a sports-themed model.

The Camry Hybrid Atara SL adds functionality in the form of rain sensing wipers, halogen headlamps featuring automatic high beam and reverse tilt outside rear vision mirrors with memory settings.

Toyota says wood panel accents and leather trimmed seats and armrest, powered driver and front passenger seats, a powered back window shade and a JBL ten-speaker audio system with inbuilt navigation all add to the Atara SL’s premium position within the revised Camry line-up.

Every Camry is powered by a 2.5-litre four cylinder, dual VVT-i petrol engine in two states of tune. The Camry GL features maximum power of 133kW and 231Nm of torque, while Atara, Atara S and Atara SX grades have power of 135kW and torque of 235Nm.

The Camry Hybrid continues with the 2.5-litre four cylinder VVT-i engine with hybrid drive. The petrol/electric system offers up combined power of 151kW.

Combined fuel consumption for petrol model’s is 7.8-litres/100km, while Toyota quotes combined fuel economy of 5.2-litres/100km for Hybrid variants.

Reversing camera technology with moving guidelines is standard on the Atara SL and there are static guidelines for all other versions, as well as a suite of seven airbags, including driver and front passenger, driver’s knee, front seat side and curtain airbags.

In addition to ABS (anti-lock braking system) and TRC (traction control), VSC (vehicle stability control), EBD (electronic brake-force distribution) and BA (brake assist) are all standard on the 2015 Camry model line up.

Lane departure alert, blind spot detection and newly added rear cross traffic alert, along with dynamic radar cruise control and Toyota’s intelligent pre-crash safety system are also included in the Camry Hybrid Atara SL.

The 2015 Camry range is available at Toyota dealers nationwide from today.
