Toyota Ukraine has released the skinny on what some other parts of the world can expect to see from the 2012 Toyota Camry. It's impossible for us to say who, besides Russia, will be getting this Camry variant, but we do clearly spot a front fascia that's a good bit different than what's available here in the land of the free. The lower air intake boasts a slimmer profile for less of an open-jaw look. Likewise, the rear valance has gone under the knife with additional detailing that abandons the rounded profile of the American car.

The final package may be a bit more refined in style, though mechanically the two sedans remain more or less identical. Buyers in the old country can lay their hands on the same engine options as their American counterparts. Those include a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder good for 18 horsepower and a 3.5-liter V6 with a snappy 268 horsepower. Toyota calls the vehicle a "business sedan," and according to our Google translator, prices start at $33,050.

      Guys, there's been two versions of the Camry in styling for probably close to 10 years now. The Camry depicted on this page is sold in markets around Eastern Europe and in Asia. It has a more traditional and conservative look in keeping with the styling preferences of those markets. The US Camry tends to be less conservative in its styling. Otherwise, most parts are shared such as the entire middle section of the car and the engines. Markets where the Camry is sold get either the US Camry or this Camry. The exception to this is Australia/NZ, which gets the US Camry (sold as Camry) and this Camry (sold as Aurion). The Camry has a 4 cylinder engine and the Aurion has a 6 cylinder engine to differentiate between the two. See: http://www.autohotspy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Toyota-Aurion-White-588x358.jpg for the current Toyota Aurion.

      18 hp from 2.5L? Toyota's not doing so well in the drive for efficiency!

      i still like the look of the usdm vs. edm, the hood looks weird in 3/4 front profile. tailights are toss up, there's some pluses with the euro model but looks to geo prizmy. its weird. when i was in japan for business i saw a lot of honda integras with acura badges and saw an S2000 in tokyo that was left hand drive, which we do the exact opposite here in the states. i guess the grass is always greener.

      Wow they should have brought this to the US! Instead they give us a Camry that looks like a big Corolla. WTF?!

      Front looks better, rear does not. The rear looks like the over-fake chromed Corolla. That must be the XLE interior that has the gobs and gobs of fake looking plasti-wood. Ick!

      "Those include a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder good for 18 horsepower..." Nice.

        I'll bet that's a typo, and that it's supposed be 118hp.

      18 HP? Yikes.

        One of the many typos that can conveniently be found all over this site.

      The 18hp 4 banger is kind of a drag!

      No MT for Europe, either. This car competes with Mercedes E-class over there.

      I believe the V6 version of this will be released as the Aurion in Australia and the Middle East (and some other countries)
