Toyota Camry review - Reliability and Safety

The Camry should prove reliable and safe. The five-year warranty is a bonus

The Toyota Camry is too new to have featured in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, but Toyota itself achieved a strong 10th-place finish out of 30 manufacturers. This tallies with Toyota’s reputation for reliability and build quality. 

Euro NCAP is yet to crash test the Camry, but we expect that it will perform well once this happens. That’s in light of the good performance of the latest Corolla, with which the Camry shares its TNGA platform. A full suite of active safety equipment comes as standard, including autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and collision warning, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam headlights. The step up to Excel trim brings cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring on top of this.

    

Warranty

Like all Toyota models the Camry gets a very competitive five-year, unlimited mileage warranty as standard. This beats just about every other rival hands down, save for the somewhat left-field Kia Optima rival which boasts a seven-year warranty – though this is limited to 100,000 miles.  

Servicing

A number of servicing options are available for the Camry, as with other Toyota models. The Camry’s hybrid system requires extra checks at service time over a conventionally powered car, but Toyota does not charge any extra for the privilege. Toyota also offers a free car wash and tyre check – plus price-matching on any tyres required.
