Introduction

Toyota axed the Avensis in 2019 and replaced it with an all-new version of the Camry. The saloon uses a 2.5-litre petrol hybrid powertrain.

Toyota’s decision to bring its big saloon back to the UK marks the end to a 14-year absence for the Camry, which struggled to compete against the likes of the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat.

The Camry also marks the beginning of the end for the slow selling, British-built Avensis which has been dropped from Toyota's line-up and had its production slot in Derbyshire taken by the new Corolla.

The 2019 Camry uses the same 2.5-litre hybrid powertrain as the Lexus ES and fuel economy that could peak at 60mpg. CO2 emissions should also be low and company car tax friendly.

However, unlike the Avensis, the Camry on its TNGA platform should be entertaining to drive with Toyota promising “fun” qualities like dynamic handling, driver focused dashboard and supple suspension that has been tuned for the UK.

The Camry has enjoyed significant success in recent years, with the notable title of being “the world's best-selling saloon” with 700,000 sales in 100 countries. It remains to be seen if the big family-friendly saloon will repeat its success with the SUV obsessed UK buyer.
