The Toyota Aurion is a mid-size car produced by Toyota in Australia and parts of Asia since 2006. Now in its second generation, the Aurion has in both cases derived from the equivalent Toyota Camry. Changes were mainly limited to revised front- and rear-end treatment, along with changes to the interior. The Camry-based Aurion is also sold in the majority of East and Southeast Asia as the Toyota Camry, with the original version of the Camry sold alongside the Aurion in Australasia and the Middle East. In the previous two markets, the car replaces the Avalon model, which can trace its roots back to the early 1990s. The first generation Aurion was on sale from 2006 to 2012. In some markets this car is referred to as the 'prestige' Camry. The Aurion shares most of its tooling, drivetrain, and centre body work, with restyled front and rear ends and interior fittings. April 2012 saw the release of the second generation Aurion in Australia and New Zealand.
