Please visit me in my Showroom and I'll show you.

The 2.4 Gets RM6,000 price hike.  But it's better spec'ced with 6 Airbags (previously 2), Dual Zone Auto Air Cond, Paddle shifter, Xenon HID with DRL, 18" rims.

Rating: 7/10 for 2.0 (looks bare compare to Kia K5) BUT 8.5/10 for 2.4 (FULLY EQUIPPED CBU Korea yet RM7,000 cheaper than KOSONG New Camry 2.5.  Let's see, 2 more Airbags, Advanced Traction Control, Paddle shift, Electric tilt and slide panoramic Sunroof, Xenon HID with DRL, 18" rims and the lists goes on! 

Well, there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words.  Here are the photos:
