VER­DICT

HT Ludhiana Live - - Htvalue+ Cars & Bikes City -

The as­ton­ish­ing thing about the Camry has to be the price — and it’s not a pleas­ant sur­prise. At lakh, it is the most ex­pen­sive saloon in its class. Stretch a bit and a BMW 3 se­ries, Audi A4 or Mercedes C Class are ac­tu­ally at­tain­able. A diesel vari­ant would have made a ter­rific propo­si­tion at that price. But petrol?

Price apart, the Camry does not set the bench­mark ei­ther on looks, drive­abil­ity or crea­ture com­fort. Where it scores is on Toy­ota’s fa­mous dura­bil­ity fac­tor. But it is de­bat­able how many peo­ple ac­tu­ally buy cars for keeps in this seg­ment. If you want a de­cently equipped trou­ble-free ex­ec­u­tive saloon and don’t mind dishing out a few lakh ru­pees ex­tra, it is dif­fi­cult to fault Camry. But there may not be too many like you.
