Toyota Camry (2019–)
Toyota to reintroduce Camry
Toyota announced it is to reintroduce the Camry to the UK market after a 14-year absence, launching a new self-charging hybrid electric model to maintain the company’s presence in the large and executive saloon market.
Its arrival during 2019 will increase Toyota’s European hybrid line-up to eight models, spanning the motoring spectrum from the Yaris supermini to the RAV4 SUV.
Camry will return in its all-new, eighth generation form, showcasing the engineering and design benefits of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). The TNGA platform is central to achieving strong “fun-to-drive” dynamic qualities together with alluring styling, precision build quality, highly efficient packaging and the use of innovative, user-friendly technologies.
As a result, Camry advances all the core qualities that have made it so popular to date, including segment-leading quality, durability and reliability, quiet running and superb ride quality. To this are added head-turning interior and exterior design, even higher comfort levels, a state-of-the-art powertrain and more driving pleasure, thanks to ride and handling specifically tuned for the European market.
An extended roofline ensures comfortable cabin dimensions, while compact side glazing contained with the wheelbase gives Camry a stylish and sporting appearance.
The interior fuses style, comfort and craftsmanship. In the front, a curving dashboard encloses an ergonomically excellent, driver-focused cockpit. In the rear, passengers are provided with spacious and comfortable accommodation.
