Toyota Camry hybrid has achieved a maximum possible five-star rating on the Federal Government’s Green Vehicle Guide.
The announcement means Camry Hybrid is the only Australian-built car, and one of just 15 models on the local market, to score a five-star GVG rating.
The Camry Hyrbid model is the third in Toyota’s range to achieve the prestigious rating, with the Toyota Prius Hybrid and Toyota Yaris also scoring a maximum possible five-star rating.
The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures make Toyota Camry Hybrid the most fuel-efficient Australian-built car, figures Toyota says will help “motorists to slash fuel bills and reduce environmental impact compared with other similar-sized family cars”.
The Federal Government’s Green Vehicle Guide is designed to assist new car buyers to more readily identify a car based on its greenhouse and air pollution emissions.
“By choosing a greener vehicle, you can make a real difference,” the Guide says.
The Green Vehicle Guide also includes details on vehicle safety equipment, and shows the Toyota Camry Hybrid to include Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and six airbags. The Toyota Camry Hybrid scored a four-star ANCAP safety rating during recent tests.
