The facelifted eighth-generation Toyota Camry has just been launched in Malaysia. The D-segment sedan gains a new look, an impressive level of added equipment and, finally, the brand new engine and gearbox combination it was designed for in the first place.
Despite the Bukit Raja plant now being able to assemble cars based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), the Camry continues to be imported from Thailand. So you still get only one variant – the full-spec 2.5V priced at RM199,110 on-the-road without insurance
Dimensions for Length, Width,and height in (mm) are 4,885 x 1,840 x 1,445. Wheelbase is 2,825 mm
The 2022 Toyota Camry features a new front fascia with a more defined centre air intake section and black slats that run the full width of the car, bookended by grey C-shaped frames.
The back view of this car has nothing much to shout about because the design is pretty much the same as its predecessor. Everything seems to be perfectly placed where they should be with the unique design of the tail lights, giving this new Camry a distinguished look on the road.
Full LED headlights and front and rear fog lights.
Taillamps are smoked internals for the LED taillights
The 2022 Camry is built with striking, expressive side mirrors
It comes equipped with rear Cross Traffic Auto Brake (RCTAB) in addition to an auto brake function for the rear cross traffic alert.
Newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels with a machined two-tone finish
This variant comes equipped with freestanding OEM infotainment touchscreen that sits atop the dashboard. The faux wood trim is also black instead of brown, while the window switch surrounds come in a matte grey rather than the previously glossy finish, presumably to reduce fingerprints.
Nine inches (an inch larger than before) OEM infotainment touchscreen and coming with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for the first time.
The stylish infotainment system keeps you effortlessly on track with navigation, real-time updates and more.
The Toyota Camry 2022 has power-reclining seats and a separate climate control zone (three zones in total) power-reclining seats and a separate climate control zone (three zones in total). It is also spacious with generous dimensions for head, shoulder and legroom.

Twin pop-out cupholders located at the centre armrest
The car has a Qi wireless charger
The Camry 2022 is finished with premium materials for all the interior parts including the dashboard, seats and door panels.
Technologies and driver assistance have also been upgraded.
There is 524 litres of bootspace available in the Camry's tail, with rear seatbacks that split/fold in a 60/40 configuration in order to accommodate longer loads.
Safety-wise, the Camry has been upgraded to the latest Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 suite of driver assistance features, which adds nighttime pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection for autonomous emergency braking. The adaptive cruise control has also been improved and can now slow down for corners and speed up in anticipation of an overtaking manoeuvre when an indicator is switched on.
Also new is lane centring assist, which keeps the car in the middle of its own lane; an auto brake function for the rear cross traffic alert and an Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS, Toyota’s version of Perodua’s Pedal Misoperation Control) round off the safety improvements. Seven airbags, stability control, rear ISOFIX child seat mounts and a blind spot monitor continue to be fitted as standard.
Three drive modes available - Eco, Normal and Sport.
A 9-inch floating infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Keyless entry, push-button start, auto lights and wipers, power-adjustable front seats (ten-way for the driver, eight-way for the passenger) with driver’s side memory and passenger shoulder switches, black leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a seven-inch multi-info display, a Qi wireless charger, a 360-degree camera system, a nine-speaker JBL sound system and a vehicle telematics system. A welcome light projector, visible in these images, is a RM990 option.
6-speaker audio system that offers decent low and mid-frequency audio output
The single available variant is powered by a 2.5 Dynamic Force Engine coupled with the Direct Shift 8-speed Automatic Transmission (AT) that delivers 209 PS and 253Nm with a fuel economy of 6.8L/100km and 40pct thermal efficiency.
The car is paired with a 8-speed Automatic Transmission
The 2022 Toyota Camry is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that drives the front wheels.
There’s a rear air vent located at the centre, behind the front occupant’s armrest.
The new Toyota Camry is composed and comfortable, with plenty of user-friendly safety and infotainment features.
Also, the Camry does have comfortable seats. The rear seats are especially roomy. Even if both the front and rear occupants are tall, you can still get comfortable in back. Up front, the seats are reasonably comfortable.
This new variant soundproofing system allows for a cabin that is more pleasant to be in.
With fewer wrinkles surrounding the upper grille, the overall look is smoother and more streamlined. However, the Camry retains an irritated appearance, as though irritated by criticisms about how uninteresting the previous-generation XV50 was. The smoked taillight internals and a new design for the 18-inch alloy wheels, along with a machined two-tone finish, round out the minor visual update.
The driving position is still excellent — you sit unexpectedly low in this unclemobile, your feet landing on well placed pedals and the steering wheel being brought close to your chest, much as in a race vehicle. It's wonderfully comfortable while being steadfastly driver-focused.
