Toyota Camry

(2019 - present)

The Toyota Camry is a large family/executive saloon that was launched in 2019, replacing the Toyota Avensis. Unlike the Avensis, the Camry is not available in an estate body style. All versions of the Camry sold in the UK are powered by a petrol-electric hybrid engine.

The Camry has received generally good reviews from the UK motoring media, although the overall scores we have collected to date place it at the bottom of its class with an Expert Rating of 70%. This is just behind key rivals such as the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia, and well behind the Volkswagen Passat or more expensive models from the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Despite the relatively low scores, the Toyota Camry has been particularly praised for being comfortable, quiet, efficient and practical. The main criticism is its driving experience, which is described as “lacklustre” compared to rivals.
