If you’re thinking “wait, that’s not the 2012 Camry i know,” you’d be right. Because this is the European version of the car that... overlaps with the Avensis so well. But now, production will begin at a Russian plant, and the Big T hopes it can make an impact there.
The 2012 all-new generation of the mid-size sedan will be built at the same Toyota Motor Manufacturing Russia (TMMR) plant in St. Petersburg that’s been assembling Camrys since 2007.

his full model change was a great opportunity for our employees to learn new skills and get extensive new knowledge. We are now fully prepared and very proud of our vehicle, its quality and safety features,” said Yoshinori Matsunaga, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Russia General Director.

As you can clearly see, the Russian Camry, which sports some EU plates, is a bit different than it American counterpart. It’s got a different set of bumpers, headlights, a simpler grille and larger taillamps. It’s available with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder or an Euro V 3.5-liter V6.
