Introducing the all-new Toyota Camry! After almost 15 years, the Camry has returned to our roads to offer an alternative to popular family favourites like the Vauxhall Insignia and Volkswagen Passat! But with such a large gap between the previous Camry and the new edition, does it offer enough to make you want to overlook the competition? Join Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

This is the new toyota camry and it’s a little bit like the spice girls hi i’m teri halliwell zigga zagga ah let me explain you see the spice girls haven’t been around in the uk for 15 years and neither has the camry but they’re both making a comeback and they’ve got better with age look there’s the old camry looks pretty ugly this new ones good-looking there’s

A spice girls back in the day i think they’re all better-looking now apart from maybe jerry so this is the kind of car you’re probably considering if you’re looking at something like a volkswagen passat or vauxhall insignia so the camry we get my phone back out again start from around 30,000 pounds as you can see here on the car wire website in fact if you want

To see how much money you can save on a new car click on the pop-out button up there all follow the link below the video to get a car lights in the best deals from our trusted dealers let’s start this review by talking about the camrys design now i’m really liking the look of the latest toyotas and this is no exception it’s got nice wide hips cool-looking rear

End i’m loving this brown metallic paint it’s super cool as is the way the rear lights just bend around the side of the cars now this is the xl version so it comes on 18-inch alloy wheels the entry level design comes on 17 but they don’t look that bad either in fact here’s a quick clip of that car there now at the front it’s very distinctive very territorial and

It works really well this excel also gets some led upgrades in terms of led fog lights and indicators which i’ll just show you now look there they are snazzy eh not really worth upgrading for though i wouldn’t say do you know what i quite like the interior design of this car it’s definitely unique and there’s quite a lot going on in terms of swooshes and shapes

And stuff like that quality’s a bit mix though so it’s like different parts the interior were built by different people and they never talk to each other and they clearly had different standards so the guy responsible for the materials on the dash and the doors and stuff obviously has very high standards however the guy responsible for these bits down here i mean

Look at that and this look they sent to console clearly had low standards i mean look that’s terrible isn’t it i mean and then toyota’s will not break but perceived quality just makes you feel good about yourself and that’s why the germans do so well still the dumpy of the controls are quite nice and there’s some touches that i do enjoy about this effect here and

Up here as well i like it though the patent does sort of remind me of the eyes of a horse flies it’s freaking me out a bit what’s also freaking me out a bit of the holes here on the speakers it’s really triggering my trip of phobia we don’t know what that is do you look it up then someone be kind enough to post it in the comments over this can see now i one thing

That does do my head in though is this area here so there’s a lot of black plastic and quite a small screen and that brings me on to this car specs the camry range keeps off with the design and that includes an infotainment system with inbuilt satellite navigation another screen between the two analogue stars and dual zone climate control it also has heated seats

Keyless entry and fully automated cruise control which when use radar to hila safe distance from the car in front and steer to prevent you weaving out of your lane the only other trim level is this range-topping xl and it includes an auto dimming rearview mirror blind spot monitoring the rear cross-traffic alert and some shiny bits of trim right and let’s talk

About that infotainment system it’s not only is this screen quite small but the resolution is low well this is colourful though eh also the menus are quite well laid out and there’s huge physical shortcut buttons that dead easy to hit while driving you do have some voice commands as well but they’re really quite limited also the sat-nav is only ok and inputting

Your destination is quite fiddly the screen is quite laggy on the map as well which is annoying what’s also annoying is that that digital drives display is pretty useless it doesn’t really show that much information really just a bit of trip stuff and general power flow yeah i think overall the infotainment system you get on a vauxhall insignia is superior and

If you click up there on the proper banner you can watch my full in-depth video review of that car so let’s carry on with the interior of this and the ergonomics so i like the fact you have electric operation for the steering wheel and there’s plenty of adjustment in the driver seat as well it’s mighty big or small you don’t forget comfy and these seats are super

Comfy actually love toyota seats very very nice also sometimes toyota’s kind of a weird layout of button so they just didn’t random places this is better things are in a sensible position so diddy’s to figure out where they are and because you’ve got physical buttons it may make it look a little bit like it’s from the 90s but steadies it’s just operate stuff while

You’re driving rather than having to do everything through a touchscreen like you do in an audi now in terms of practicality it’s actually pretty good so look at there’s door bins they don’t know that big but that’s a litre bottle and you can fit that in there no problem at all you’ve got some cup holders here which can cope with various sizes of coffee cup slot

So you won’t end up knocking the lid off smaller ones love this feature you have a wireless charging pad there and you can slide it backwards out the way so your phone doesn’t distract you and you get an extra bit of storage down there as well that’s a brilliant idea and then there’s some charging points there as well as a 12 volt and here you’ve got some more

Room and the glove box that’s a decent size as well the camera is really practical here in the backseat as you can see i’ve got plenty of room this rear seat is super comfy it’s nicely reclined or they can actually recline it further but you don’t need to the seat base is long so you get lots of under thigh support loads of knee room i mean look at that there’s

Tons of it wish i could just slide my feet a little bit further under the seat in front but it’s not too bad headroom is a little bit on the tight side though that’s probably the only minor issue want to check someone else out as well ok let’s go go go go yes they go all the way down so you can lean out and i’ll just wait on their highlights it’s another problem

Let’s say you’ve got three people in the backup once this middle seat is actually alright and headroom is just about okay here but people in the out seats get pushed outward slightly because the body is bit narrow and then they end up hitting their head on there just like i did a moment ago while trying to do a demonstration to you guys another thing i’m not so

Keen about is this the hump in the floor but it’s not that big a deal because the foot wells are big so three people can easily have enough space for their feet rest of the practicalities okay so look at that that just flops down classic toe to random build quality again and this is why i such a cheap flat but that’s handy look there get you your drinks in there

There’s also enough space in the door bins for two bottles check this out as well you get marsupial style pouches in the seatbacks yeah and there’s some charging points there via mobile devices as for fitting a baby see well the cameras id suffix covers are removable but that does mean that easy to lose however the anchor points are dead simple to get to it’s also

Easy to get the seat inside because the doors open wide enough but you will have to move the front seat slightly forward if you want to lock it in a rear-facing seat or a bigger seat and that could annoy toilet drivers in the front if you have two child seats in the back of the camry that is just about in a space to squeeze an adult between them there wouldn’t be

That comfy which make it ideal for the mother-in-law yes mother-in-law jokes just like the early 1990s which is when the camry was last on sale right guys let’s talk about the camrys boot so being a saloon it’s not as practical as a hatchback but you do have quite a wide opening for this kind of car there isn’t too much of a low lip either so you can get suitcases

In there quite easily the planner absolute nakid suitcases it’s probably something to do with the way i treat them so it’s a bit of a hit-and-miss affair this boot the actual size is reasonable you can fit quite a lot of stuff in it and there’s some features i like as well not the fact that you’ve got underfloor storage because really there’s not much at all seems

Like it’s look you can just hook that up on there lad and there’s some other things that are less called see that look at this they suppose we’ve gots to hang things off but they’re a little bit flimsy and then the tie-down hooks is just things here which once again a flimsy then what it is with toyota’s some things are good some things are really not so good like

This fall down the rear seats pull that like that and looking happen surfing around below them and it’s easy enough to do i guess but the opening isn’t all that huge and you’re probably wondering just how much stuff can you fit in this cars boot with those seats folded down you can carry a bike in the car but you will have to remove the front wheel and it’s quite

Tough to squeeze it with that narrow opening to get into the back seat area with the seats back in place you can carry two large suitcases and two small suitcases inside the boot then there’s just enough space left to carry a set of golf clubs and a soft bag if it’s boxes you want to carry there’s room for eight small boxes but unfortunately larger boxes will not

Go through that opening really if you want to carry lots of stuff if that’s a priority for you then you probably want a skoda superb and if you click up there on the pop-out banner you can see my full in-depth video review of that car and that brings you on to five annoying things about the toyota camry in the uk the camry is not available with android auto nor

Apple carplay until sometime in 2020 thanks for that toyota whenever you fold the seat backs down then put them back up its central armrest just flops after the auto door locks are super annoying and you can’t just get eyes if you the passenger by double tugging sounds it you have to click this and then you can get out just my extra step toyota the seat belt for

The central passenger doesn’t really attract the full way so it just kind of dangles there like annoying rupee thing the car has is weird aftermarket tuning morons wider exhausts around which and knowingly passes the car while sticker truth but it won’t file the bottle of truth or no rub on your game toyota it’s not all negative though here’s five good things about

This car the camry has a really clever air-conditioning system so as well as like blowing out air it also releases ions which is surrounded by tiny water molecules and they effectively moisturize your skin to help keep you looking younger maybe i should buy myself a camry this car comes with the two million six hundred and twenty eight thousand minute warranty also

Known as five years the cars hybrid system uses special compact batteries which are small enough to fit into the seat so they don’t eat into boot space this engine has a thermal efficiency of forty one percent which what it means nothing to you but it is better than any other road car and what that means is it’s better converting fuel into forward motion rather

Than just wasting it as heat toyota has fitted an extra layer of special sound insulating material throughout the entire car to keep it nice and quiet inside and so that don’t hear annoying noises too much from the outside there’s only one version of the camry available in the uk it’s the hybrid which has a 2.5 litre petrol engine mated to an electric motor for a

Combined 218 horsepower which is good for not 60 in a 2.3 seconds which isn’t terrible the good news is if you fit this car with a 17-inch wheels it will emit less than 100 grams per kilometer of carbon dioxide making it very tax efficient when our this tighter camry is lovely to drive in town so the suspension is super soft over potholes and speed humps and you

Can actually drive it around on electric power alone for quite some time if you want to yeah there’s even an eevee mode which locks it but if you put your foot down or try to accelerate enthusiastically the petrol engine soon kicks in and you didn’t hear it a little bit but it’s quite smooth transition what’s not so smooth though the brake so you took them when

It’s like they’re a little bit jerky the steering is nice and light and the turning circle is okay it’s not the best in the world but it’s not bad you will be able to get around to mini roundabouts and do u-turns if you need to the automatic gearbox really helps in town as well especially when you’re doing the new business stuff it’s actually quite smooth at low

Speeds for instance i’m going to park the car now and it’s just so much simpler let’s have to mess around with a college and kier selector so there we go look just dead easy to actually park into space because you’ve got really good all-round visibility the dash is quite low the pillars aren’t too fat so you can see exactly what’s going on and the camera helps

Out as well so i like it for that all done and dusted the only problem is is that i wish that wing mirror would decrease slightly so you could see where you are in relation to the kurt so you don’t scratch your alloys anyway that’s inner for that let’s go drive it somewhere else the camera is a pretty good car for long-distance journeys because on the motorway

It’s reasonably quiet well it is until you put your foot down then hear that droning noise for the engine because the way the cvt gearbox the revs at a constant rate however the acceleration is pretty decent out was 50 to 70 and it’s pretty quick to do that the only problem is that will affect the economy so don’t do too often because this is an economical car so

I’m averaging 51 miles per gallon which is really really good makes it a great alternative to a diesel if you don’t want a diesel car where this car does start to fall down though is on a twisty road because it’s a bit like making an old man run through an obstacle course it’s just not great i have a sports mode and when you press it doesn’t seem to do anything

Besides make a little red strip appear down there on the digital display yeah also you can change gears yourself and there’s like six different gears to choose from but it doesn’t feel like a normal gearbox because it’s just like an artificial system created by that cvt system you don’t bother with that your best just chilling out and taking it easy because if you

Want your big family car to actually be good on a twisty road you probably want something like a master six and if you click on the pop-up i’m not there you can see my full identity a review of that car i now though we’re gonna run wide whoa-oh didn’t like that at all we’re gonna run while hiding the camera and coal down calm down it’s a toyota take it easy so then

What’s my final verdict on the new probably ode to camry should you avoid it should you consider it should you shortlist it or should you just go right ahead and buy it well i think if you want a practical family car that’s very economical yeah isn’t a diesel and it’s reliable you should go ahead and buy it but if you don’t really and you just want a car that’s big

And practical use for and decent to drive you should probably just consider it because what it is good there are plenty of other alternatives which are better value for money do you agree my verdict let me know in the comments section also please subscribe to this channel for more videos and if you click on the deals box to the right you can see how much you can
