Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

TOY­OTA has launched an up­graded limited edi­tion Camry RZ Spe­cial Edi­tion, with satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion now added to its goodie bag.

Last of­fered in mid-year, the Camry RZ was an al­most im­me­di­ate sell-out, with all 1100 ex­am­ples find­ing homes in weeks.

The new RZ Spe­cial Edi­tion is re­stricted to just 700 units, this time fea­tur­ing satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion with Suna real time traf­fic up­dates, a seven-inch touch-screen in­ter­face, six-speaker Dig­i­tal Au­dio (DAB+) and voice recog­ni­tion.

The ex­tra items amount to nearly $5000, but the RZ is priced at $2700 more than the Camry Al­tise, on which it is based.

Those ad­di­tional fea­tures also in­clude 18-inch gloss-black al­loy wheels with high-per­for­mance low­pro­file tyres, a sports sus­pen­sion pack­age, twin ex­haust sys­tem and a unique ex­te­rior de­sign treat­ment.

The dual ex­haust lifts the 2.5-litre four-cylin­der petrol en­gine’s out­puts to 135kW of power (+2kW) and 235Nm of torque (+4Nm), while main­tain­ing Euro 5 emis­sions com­pli­ance and 7.9litres/100km fuel econ­omy.

Out­side, the sports-mesh grille, halo­gen head­light in­serts, ex­te­rior mir­ror cas­ings, boot-lip spoiler and rear-bumper dif­fuser are fin­ished in gloss-black to match the sports al­loy rims.

Front and rear cor­ner park­ing sen­sors are also stan­dard, while spe­cific RZ de­cals on the lower rear door and boot lid en­hance the car’s sporty per­son­al­ity.

Two gloss paint colours are avail­able at no ex­tra cost – di­a­mond white or cherry. Three other pre­mium colours – sil­ver pearl or graphite (metal­lic) or eclipse black (mica) – are $450 op­tions.

The Camry RZ Spe­cial Edi­tion re­tails at $29,190.
