Even with such minor changes in small details, the updated Camry in China wipes the floor compared to the US one, especially exterior wise. I'm not sure why the US market specific design choices were chosen this way, was this too boring?

I noticed in the rear USB-A and USB-C charging ports. Reviewer says most new cars come with USB-C ports only. Toyota lives in there real world, not fantasy world. Taxi/Uber drivers will always have clients/passengers that don’t have the latest thing. No person will say “nice modern car, I have to upgrade my phone”.

It still is more than a facelift. While very similar, everything is changed slightly.

From what I can tell, it looks like the hood, trunk, and quarter panels are new. Front fenders, doors, and roof are carryover I think.

The car is growing on me. I like that grey color that was shown.

I saw the white one at the LA auto show. It legitimately looks good. I think it’ll look even better in black. It’s a good evolution from their prior to design.

I agree. The white one looks like it was slightly lowered though. But they all looked really nice looking forward to what direction they take with a TRD/GR version if there is ever one.

I don't see much difference between this Chinese model and the North American Camry XSE model -- other than the obvious one that this Chinese model has front daytime running lights that wrap around the outside of the headlights rather than inboard of them.

Would I be correct in assuming that’s the naturally aspirated 2.0 and not the 2.0 turbo found in the chdm Highlander?

I think XSE AWD is going to be a great car to own and drive. 232hp with sport suspension, instant torque from batteries, and AWD traction will be a lot of fun for a fairly lightweight sedan. Not to mention ~45+ MPG...

How or why anyone would buy anything else in this class?

Yes. The only advantage of the ES would be sound insulation, and IMO it is worth it. Sound insulation is for me one of the most important aspects in a new car purchase.
