Manufacturer price from:£31,305

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.

Trim: Excel

Excel models get all the luxuries of lesser Camrys, plus extra safety tech, including LED fog lights, blindspot monitoring and lane-changing assistance. Given the small price premium, we reckon it's worth upgrading.

Engine: 2.5 VVT-i Hybrid

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.
