ES300h v Camry Excel

Recommended Posts

Been looking at both specs and it seems to me that the top of the range Camry @£31,295 is outstanding value when compared to the basic E300h @£35,155

Camry does not appear to have a sunroof,but it has a 5 year warranty.

The Camry seems well priced and packaged.

I was surprised the Camry is priced so low compared to the ES. It is a smaller vehicle and missed some creature comforts such as memory seats etc. but the Excel compares well with the ES with Premium Pack. Not sure dealers have any in yet to go and look at as it is July before customer orders are expected to start arriving.

And considering Lexus interior is outright appalling for luxury car I doubt there is any actual difference except of the badge. + Toyota as well have Android/apple integration... well at least my rental Auris had it, so why not Camry.

At the moment it seems that Camry page is just placeholder, but I am sure that when car becomes "properly" available, one will be able to match ES spec very closely.

I'm surprised they are bringing it to the UK - I can't see it achieving any high sales numbers - last time it sold in small numbers and then the model was just left to die down - very few people have heard of it?

It's never going to sell in big numbers but with diesels out of favour, Toyota can bring their worldwide hybrid saloon to Europe, rather than having a European special, the Avensis, with the Corolla saloon covering the smaller saloon segment.

All the earlier information about the Camry also said that it had HUD; the final specs show it without. I expect that was removed to stop it looking even better value against the ES.

Probably removed to hit a specific price point, rather than just to make a distinction to Lexus, just wish they would allow it to be added as a costed option.

The Camry has the same drive train but has a modified chassis so you can't compare the two by looking at the list of specification.
