It was previously speculated that the Camry Hybrid has been discontinued in India. But with this update, it is confirmed that the car will continue to be sold for the time being.
Toyota India has silently introduced the 2018 model year Camry Hybrid with a few minor updates.
Most changes on the new Camry are limited to its interior. First up, gone is the old black-and-beige dashboard and instead, there is a new all-black finish with updated faux wood inserts. The seats are now dressed in tan-brown leather upholstery which contrasts well with the black dashboard. There is also an all-new design for the steering wheel.
Aesthetics aside, the cabin of the 2018 Camry also gains some new premium features. These include a 12-speaker JBL sound system, Qi wireless charging pad for smartphones, updated infotainment system and tyre pressure monitoring system. Additionally, the car also gets new LED fog lamps on the outside and a total of nine airbags for enhanced safety.
Otherwise, the Camry Hybrid remains mechanically identical to the 2017 model. It is worth noting that the Camry sold in India is the previous-gen model of the saloon which has been replaced by an all-new model since 2017 in global markets. Since demand for D+ segment saloons in India has plummeted over the past years, it remains to be seen when the next-gen Camry makes it to India, if at all.
