So many safety features and Toyota’s brilliant service are big USPs

Safety and After Sales Service – Safety is never a bother with Toyota’s India line-up. It is but natural then that the top-spec car from the company’s range gets a whole hog of safety. Toyota gives 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, ESP and child seat anchorages as standard. It is likely that the Camry will score top marks in crash tests with so much on offer. The Camry offers world-class safety and it is right up there with the competition. Toyota’s service and reliability, as we all know, is top class too.

Buy the Camry and it’ll never disappoint you

Verdict – The 10th generation Toyota Camry Hybrid is indeed a step up from the older car. It has so much more tech, offers excellent comfort and the powertrain is brilliant. There’s not much to dislike about this sedan actually. The new model is priced a bit lower than the outgoing car and it offers good value for this price because it comes bundled with Toyota’s stellar service and reliability. Talking about competition, well the Camry rivals the Honda Accord Hybrid which is priced significantly higher. For the price of the Camry you do get entry-level luxury saloons but for people who don’t care much about the badge and want a car that lasts for years if not a lifetime, the Camry is the one to buy.

The Toyota Camry Hybrid competes with the Honda Accord Hybrid mainly

Testers’ Note:

“The old Toyota Camry felt too soft, the new one definitely feels much better to drive with the steering now offering some feel. However, this car is far from being a driver’s car although the powerful hybrid engine will make you believe otherwise. Loaded with plenty of features and offering great comfort too, the Toyota Camry is one of the best D-segment sedans in the market currently if you want a comfortable and luxurious sedan with great reliability.” – Faisal Khan, Editor, MotorBeam.
