Available as a self-charging hybrid electric, the new Camry expands Toyota’s European line-up of hybrid electric vehicles to 8 models.
Its 2.5-litre hybrid electric powertrain combines fuel efficiency and low emissions and quiet operation with more power and greater responsiveness.
The all-new Camry is the 8th generation of a car that has won countless awards and distinctions since it first went on sale in 1982. The model is sold in more than 100 countries globally, with sales totalling over 19 million units to date.
With annual sales of more than 700,000 units, Camry remains the best-selling D/E-segment sedan in the world.
The latest generation Camry showcases Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA) design and engineering philosophy. TNGA places enthusiast-oriented 'fun to drive' characteristics and alluring styling on an equal footing with superlative build quality, highly efficient packaging, and innovative, user-friendly technology.
As a result, the all-new Camry builds on all the core values that have made it so popular to date -segment-leading levels of QDR (quality, durability and reliability), quietness and ride quality- with head-turning new exterior and interior design, outstanding comfort and roominess, state-of-the-art powertrain technology and newfound levels of driving pleasure, thanks to driving dynamics specifically tuned for the European market
Its elegant and dynamic exterior features a cabin with an extended roofline to ensure occupant comfort, combined with compact side glazing that fits within the wheelbase to create a uniquely stylish, sporting appearance.
The interior represents an ideal fusion of style, comfort and craftsmanship. In the front, the sensuous curves of the new dashboard enclose an ergonomically excellent, driver-focused cockpit environment, whilst the rear offers passengers remarkably spacious and highly comfortable accommodation.
The new Camry Hybrid will be available throughout Western Europe in the first quarter of 2019.
