UMW Toyota Motor has announced bookings availability for the upgraded Toyota Camry and Corolla Altis. Both models are now available with a wider range of optional accessories which can be included on purchase.
For the new Camry, the improvements made are new trim materials. All four variants of the Camry now come with upgraded carbonwood trim with brown stitching on the dashboard. The new Camry 2.5HV Luxury additionally offers new Kogane leather seats (‘kogane’ means gold in Japanese) with the following optional accessories, USB charging ports and auto-fold wing mirrors (available for all variants). For selected variants, a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) is now available as well.
As the flagship of the Toyota range in the country, the Camry offers status, luxury, comfort, power and technology. The top variant is the Camry Hybrid with a 2.5-liter Hybrid Synergy Drive for high performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency.
The new Toyota Corolla Altis can now be ordered with additional optional accessories that improve convenience while bringing the updated technological features to owners. The available optional accessories are two USB charging ports so mobile phones and other personal devices can stay charged on long journeys. Also available are Autofold door mirrors which now automatically fold when the vehicle is locked by remote (optional for Corolla Altis 1.8E only). And available to all variants are the illuminated scuff plates on the front and rear doors.
The Digital Video Recorder (DVR), also an optional accessory, is manufactured to Toyota’s standards. It provides audio and video recordings of each drive for memories or to use in the event of an unlikely incident.
The Panoramic View Monitor (PVM), another optional accessory, utilises hidden cameras around the car to provide a 360-degree view of all sides. The cameras assist the driver on parking, thanks to the clear images it provides.
There is no increase in prices of the new Camry and Corolla Altis. On-the-road prices (without insurance) for the Camry range start from RM148,600 while for the Corolla Altis, they start from RM117,400 with three grades available. As with all Toyota models distributed by UMWT, the Camry and Corolla Altis come with a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage. For the Camry Hybrid, the warranty coverage for the hybrid battery pack is up to 8 years for peace of mind of the owners.
