Toyota Camry Hybrid for Thailand - Click above for a high-res image gallery

It may have taken a year to make it happen, but the locally-built Toyota Camry Hybrid is finally ready to go on sale in Thailand. This new version of the Camry Hybrid is the first of its kind (not assembled in Japan) and features unique new front and rear fascias that are derived from the Australian Aurion. Our take? The front grille is vaguely reminiscent of the three-bar chrome schnoz used by Ford in America, although it also reminds somewhat of the Venza, as well.

Although final pricing has not yet been announced, Toyota expects to sell the new Camry Hybrid in Thailand with just a small premium over the standard model due to a reduced 10 of all Camry sales in the region. Soon, the Japanese automaker will begin exporting the Thai-built Camry Hybrid to other countries in Southeast Asia.

      Boring, uninteresting, not an attractive automobile, typical rehash from Toyota.

      They have been selling this shape as the Camry in China since 2006 made in Guangdong. Either a 2.0 or 2.4 litre.
      Mostly Sold as a limo (in black)
      I feel this new styling is similar to that of the old and new Passat (3 bar grille, front air intakes, door handles)

      Granted, the Camry sold in Asian markets always looked more interesting than the US Camry; the new one is more so due to its basis on the AUDM Toyota Aurion. Also, I definitely like the taillight shape and grille style of this one much more; the new US one looks like an overgrown first-generation (pre-wedge) Toyota Prius.

      This does look better than what we got.

        That's because Toyota keeps their best cars for themselves.

      No way this is a Toyota. It doesn't have Toyota's typical huge hideous seam running across the front of the hood and down the front fenders.

      Looks like the new subaru legacy combined with the new prius. Boring
