Toyota has launched an upgraded Camry RZ Special Edition, with satellite navigation* now added to the standard equipment list.

Last offered in the middle of this year, the Camry RZ was an almost immediate sell-out, with all 1100 examples finding homes within weeks of the limited-build model going on sale.

The new Camry 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.

These upgrades come on top of the extra equipment already added to the Camry RZ, representing total additional value approaching $5000, while this Special Edition model is priced just $2,700 above the Camry Altise on which it is based.

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

Developed in Australia to sharpen the Camry RZ's dynamic reflexes, the revised suspension tune enhances body control without compromising ride comfort.

The grippy 45-series rubber combines with a faster steering-gear ratio to heighten driver engagement and deliver even greater agility.

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 7.9-litres/100km fuel economy^.

On the outside, the sports-mesh radiator grille, halogen headlamp 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 premium sports theme continues inside with dual-zone climate-control automatic air-conditioning, high-grade three-spoke steering wheel, RZ-branded front floor mats as well as keyless smart entry and smart start all standard inclusions.

The Camry RZ Special Edition has a recommended retail price of $29,190##.

The RZ has a five-star safety rating with standard fitment of seven airbags, reversing camera, vehicle stability and traction control, and anti-skid brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution.

Like every new Camry, the RZ is covered by Toyota Service Advantage with up to five standard scheduled services at $140 each during the first four years or 75,000km** (whichever occurs first).
