Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Running costs are arguably the Camry’s strongest suit, especially if you’re a company car driver. The NEDC converted CO2 emissions figure is just 98g/km for the base model with its 17in wheels, rising to 101g/km for the Excel with its larger 18in wheels. The icing on the cake is that – being petrol powered – it doesn’t fall foul of the 4% Benefit-in-Kind surcharge that clobbers diesel company car drivers.
Economy is impressive, too. Depending on trim and options, the official combined figure is between 50.4 and 53.3mpg, while our varied test route, which included motorways, saw almost 50mpg achieved without much effort. And hybrids are particularly efficient in town, when they maximise their electric running.
