Toyota Camry to return to Britain as Mondeo Hybrid rival

Electrified saloon will fill void left by departing Avensis in early 2019

Toyota will reintroduce its Camry saloon to Britain in 2019 after a 14-year absence, filling the void left by the soon-to-depart Avensis and presenting a new rival to the Ford Mondeo.

The Camry, which has remained on sale in other markets and ranks as the world’s best-selling saloon, will come exclusively with a hybrid powertrain that is based on a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and electric motor.

This system, already offered in the hybrid version of the RAV4, will be self-charging, meaning no pure-electric running will be possible. It makes the Camry a rival to the likes of the Mondeo Hybrid and Volkswagen Passat GTE.

The latest Camry, on sale globally since 2017, is underpinned by the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which is also used by the Prius, C-HR and Auris, as well as the RAV4. Toyota said the Camry would be tuned for Europe, suggesting cars sold here will offer sharper handling.

Toyota will announce UK specifications in the run-up to the car’s market launch, expected to be in early 2019. Due to its larger size, it’s likely that the Camry will cost more than the departing Avensis. A starting price of £25,000 is possible.

The brand is gradually pulling the British-built Avensis from UK sale due to sluggish demand. UK Avensis sales fell to just 3473 units last year, 1660 fewer than in 2016. However, the larger and more premium Camry is predicted to be more popular with fleet buyers, suggesting it could dwarf those numbers.

The Camry was offered in Britain from 1983 until 2004, when it was removed due to falling sales. However, the model has remained a strong seller in other countries including the US. It has sold in more than 700,000 units globally.

Toyota Camry 2018 review

Should I buy one?

Think, then, of the Camry not quite as the dynamic new entrant to the D-segment that some might lead you to believe. But know that it’s capable, spacious, quiet and very comfortable.

It won't arrive in the UK until next spring, so Toyota is still to decide on the pricing. High twenties to early thirties is where you get a big ordinary hybrid D-segment saloon elsewhere, so let’s call it £30,000. And three-and-a-half stars, with the potential to move half a star either way, depending on the final specification. Regardless of whether you end up sitting in the front or the back.

Toyota Camry shown in Paris ahead of return to Europe

Electrified saloon will fill void left by departing Avensis in early 2019

Toyota has shown the Camry at the Paris motor show ahead of its reintroduction to Britain in 2019 after a 14-year absence.

The Camry fills the void left by the Avensisand presents a new rival to the Ford Mondeo. The car has remained on sale in other markets and ranks as the world’s best-selling saloon, will come exclusively with a hybrid powertrain that is based on a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and electric motor, providing 215bhp and 163lb ft of torque. Toyota claims that 0-62mph passes in 8.3sec, and the Camry will reach 112mph.

This system, already offered in the hybrid version of the RAV4, will be self-charging, meaning no pure-electric running will be possible. It makes the Camry a rival to the likes of the Mondeo Hybrid and Volkswagen Passat GTE, with claimed fuel economy of 67.3mpg and emissions of 98g/km.

In pictures: the greatest Toyotas ever made

The latest Camry, on sale globally since 2017, is underpinned by the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which is also used by the Prius, C-HR and Auris, as well as the RAV4. Toyota said the Camry would be tuned for Europe, suggesting cars sold here will offer sharper handling. Toyota claims that the new Camry is 30 per cent stiffer than the outgoing model.

At 4885mm long, 1845mm wide and 1445mm tall, it's around the same length as a BMW 5 Series, albeit slightly narrower and lower. At 524 litres, the Camry's boot is marginally smaller than that of the 5 Series.

On the inside, an 8in infotainment screen comes as standard, as does a 10in head-up display and 7in display in the instrument cluster. Beige or black leather interiors are the only options, and a power reclining function will be an option.

Toyota will announce UK specifications in the run-up to the car’s market launch, expected to be in early 2019. Due to its larger size, it’s likely that the Camry will cost more than the departing Avensis. A starting price of around £30,000 is expected.
