Toyota has announced prices for its hybrid Camry saloon, marking the return of the model to the UK market after 14 years away.

Replacing the Avensis, the new eighth-generation Camry will only be available to UK buyers in petrol-electric hybrid form.

The self-charging hybrid system fitted to the Camry is the same as that on the latest RAV4 SUV, combining a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor for a total of 218hp. CO2 emissions range from 98 to 101g/km (NEDC), depending on model chosen, and combined cycle fuel consumption is quoted between 50.5 and 53.3mpg (WLTP).

The new Camry will be offered in two grades, the Design at £29,995 and the Excel for £31,295.

Standard equipment on the Design includes 17-inch nine-spoke alloy wheels, leather upholstery, LED headlights, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera and heated and power-adjustable front seats.

The driver gets a seven-inch digital information display and Toyota’s Touch 2 multimedia system is included with navigation, Bluetooth and DAB on a seven-inch touchscreen.

All versions are fitted with Toyota’s Safety Sense active safety systems, including the Pre-Collision Safety system that offers autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Adaptive Cruise Control is standard, as is a lane-keeping control, traffic sign recognition and auto high-beam headlamps.

Excel versions gain 18-inch 20-spoke alloy wheels, LED fog lights, LED dual-beam projector headlights, wireless phone charging and further safety systems including a blind-spot monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, lane changing and sonar aids.

Order books for the new Camry open at the beginning of April and the first examples are expected on UK roads in July.
