The Toyota Camry hybrid saloon is set to return to the UK this summer. The new car uses Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. In anticipation of the Camry’s arrival, Toyota has announced prices and outline equipment specifications for the new line-up. The eighth generation of the world’s best-selling upper medium saloon will be exclusively a hybrid model in the UK.
The new Camry will be available in two equipment grades – Design and Excel. On-the-road prices are £29,995 for the Design version and £31,295 for the Excel.
The Design comes as standard with 17-inch nine-spoke alloy wheels, leather upholstery, LED headlights, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, smart entry and push-button start, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, heated and power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support, seven-inch TFT multi-information display and Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with seven-inch touchscreen, navigation, Bluetooth and DAB.
Toyota Safety Sense active safety systems are also included in the package, comprising Pre-Collision Safety system with pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with full speed range following, Lane Departure Alert with steering assist, Road Sign Assist, Sway Warning and Automatic High Beam.
The Camry Excel builds on this specification with 18-inch 20-spoke alloys, LED fog lights, LED dual-beam projector headlights, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, wireless charging tray, Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Lane Change Assist.
There are five body colour options at launch, including new Platinum White Pearl and Graphite Shadow shades.
Camry’s hybrid system features a new 2.5-litre hybrid powertrain that Toyota says combines fuel efficiency, low emissions and quiet operation with more power and greater responsiveness. It delivers 215bhp/160kW and CO2 emissions from 98 to 101g/km, according to model grade, (NEDC correlated data), with combined cycle fuel consumption from 50.5 to 53.3mpg (WLTP data).
Toyota retailers are accepting orders for the new Camry from 1 April, with sales and customer deliveries from 1 July.
