Toyota Camry review
The Toyota Camry is spacious, comfortable and efficient – a safe bet for families and fleet drivers alike
The new Camry takes the place of the old Avensis in Toyota’s range, bringing a hybrid-only engine line-up and the associated low company car tax costs, reasonable economy and smooth, relaxed drive. Toyota’s big saloon majors in comfort and rides very nicely, while standard equipment is so good that you don’t need to venture beyond the entry-level model. Poor infotainment holds it back in this department, however.
Those who prioritise an exciting driving experience should look elsewhere: the Camry is pretty dull and doesn’t do anything to involve its driver. Rivals are more fun to drive, while an entry-level BMW 3 Series is better in almost every way bar standard kit and outright size.
Overall, the Camry’s good quality, decent value and hybrid powertrain keep it relevant in its class. It’s a sensible – if not exciting – choice.
