Review

The Toyota Camry is rather disappointing, whether you're after comfort or fun, but it's spacious and very cheap to run. If you're a company car driver, focused mainly on cheap tax bills, it is a worthy proposition, but if you can live with a petrol or diesel instead, there are far better executive cars out there.

get the best price

Even in entry-level Design spec, the Camry gets dual-zone climate control, electric seat adjustment with lumbar support, sat nav, front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, and automatic lights and wipers. However, Excel models are even better equipped and only slightly more expensive.

All Camrys come with a 2.5-litre petrol engine that's linked to an electric motor to boost efficiency, meaning 50mpg is realistic in the real world. However, you don't get the low-down torque of diesel rivals, and the engine becomes noisy when you put your foot down.
