Toyota has unveiled the updated 2021 Camry Hybrid sedan for the European markets. The model comes with some minor cosmetic tweaks along with updated safety technology like - improved pedestrian and cyclist detection, and addition of new features such as Intersection Turn Assistance. The car continues to be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which the company claims, has enabled it to retain 'fun to drive' characteristics, with the strong build quality, reliability and safety. Toyota has said that the Camry Hybrid will go on sale throughout Western Europe during this autumn.
Visually, most of the chrome bits on the 2021 Toyota Camry Hybrid have been replaced by black elements, which add a sporty look to the car, this includes the chrome element on the grille. The front bumper too has been slightly revised, and we get to see a new C-shaped silver insert at either end, connected by the signature wide horizontal slats of the front airdam. The foglamps too look updated, and the car now comes with a set of revised 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels, and a new exterior colour, the former featuring twisted V-shaped spokes. At the rear, the car comes with revised taillamps.
