Looks like Toyota is gearing up for its first launch of 2022, which could be the facelifted Camry Hybrid. The manufacturer has teased the sedan on its social media channels ahead of its expected launch this month or early February. 

The facelifted Camry was unveiled for the European market back in November 2020. The teased model looks identical to the overseas model, with a new front bumper, redesigned lower and upper grilles, and new alloy wheels. Also seen in the teaser is the new Deep Metal Grey shade. While the European-spec Camry is available in different variants, we might get it in a single fully loaded variant like the current one. 

The cabin should largely remain unchanged save for a new centre console. The European-spec Camry gets a new floating 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, redesigned AC vents, and an all-black theme with dark wood inserts. The same bits should also be carried over to the upcoming India-spec model. 

In terms of features, the facelifted Camry may gain the new touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The current model is already a feature-rich sedan with powered and ventilated front seats, power recline rear seats, an electric sunroof, head-up display, three-zone climate control, electrically adjustable steering, nine airbags, and a rear parking camera. 

The Camry sold overseas gets one notable feature: ADAS (advanced driver assistance system). The technology features automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, automatic high beam, and blind spot monitoring. What remains to be seen is if these features will also be seen in India as well. 

Under the hood, the facelift continues with the same 2.5-litre petrol engine coupled with an electric motor, producing a combined output of 218PS. The transmission option should remain the same CVT gearbox with paddle shifters. 

The 2022 Camry is expected to demand a small premium over its current price tag of Rs 41.20 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The sedan falls in a similar price range as that of the BMW 2 Series, Mercedes A-Class Limousine, and Audi A4

Also that such hybrid engine is more essential on their public transport vehicles like Innova because that will help India to get greener footprint but they are giving it in high end car like Camry
