The good folks from IAB dropped a note to share this particular Indonesian site which posted what seems to be images taken from a Toyota Camry Minor Change (a.k.a facelift) sales manual. Folks who read Indonesian can go directly to here. Note that the Camry below refers to the "Asian-Flagship Camry" sold in Taiwan, China, ASEAN grouping countries, and also in Australia as the 3.5 V6 guise only Toyota Aurion. This should not be confused with the "Global Camry" sold in Japan, North America, Australia and certain parts of the Middle East. For more details - read this post.
Click to enlarge.
New dynamic yet elegant "X" themed design. Whatever that means. Note the lower airdam design and the opposing lines that extend from the hood through the chrome grille.
3D effect headlamps. "Velg Racing" (again...whatever that means) design sporty and trendy wheels. New "lines" for the tail lamps. New chrome surrounds for the front fog lamps. New design for the upper and lower portion of the grille.
Blah blah blah no changes to the interior design.
New positions for the instrument cluster gauges.
Audio with AUX jack and MP3 / iPod support (standard across all models). Massager rear seats and LED illuminated roof ambient lights for 3.5Q model.
The Camry Minor Change have already been launched in Taiwan and China. Introduction in ASEAN markets should begin by end of Q3 2009, the exact month may vary depending on individual markets. It is not a difficult job to obtain a sales manual. All sales person will receive a copy of it prior to the vehicle launch. A bit leg pulling and cajoling with the regular contacts is sufficient to get you a copy. I suppose the Indonesian distributor for Toyota cars - P.T. Toyota Astra Motor just had their sales training session. Which means actual launch in Indonesia should be less than a month away.
