Looks like a slightly darker hue of the green that's on the Crown.

I like that they finally have an optional 6 speed for the other models, rather than a
5 speed for ONLY the base model
I like the subtle changes

What's the official color name that's on the Crown? I like the green as well. It sort of looks like carbon green.

I was a bit surprised to read that. In any event, I'm glad they added the 6speed; hopefully the SE trim now has improved driving dynamics to go along with these revisions. Toyota needs to put that new 2.5 four-cylinder engine in the rest of the lineup, including the Scions.

I'm not too sure if I like the Venza style grille on the blue Camry.

I like the Hybrid's front bumper, that grill isn't too exaggerated. Put a lip on that and have it available for the SE sports package.
Check the Prius thread and you'll notice that they have similar front bumpers. Sort of. Toyota should have came out with a Hybrid SE -- good idea.

This last pic shows the green as it is. Definitely the same as the one on the Crown. One of the pics I took in Ikebukuro shows the very same hue and gold flaking. On the Japanese website the same 6V4 code is used too for the Camry.

Not much of a fan of the painted grill though, makes the nose look a bit odd. Maybe I need to change my grill paradigm :)
