Yes, but it hasn't been driven half way to the moon (yes, seriously, your GT86 has very nearly reached half the distance to the moon..... :shock: )

Does anyone actually care about the chronological age of cars these days? Excluding Mazdas, most cars don't rust or age. They eventually fail mechanically, mostly through high mileage.

Yes currently the number 1 choice unless something else jumps out within the next 12 months :!:

Am still waiting on the New Camry which hits the UK Market in September, but the downside with that car is it's a Notchback (Boot with Folding Back Seats)

I am waiting for Motorline Gatwick to get the New Corolla 2.0lt Hybrid Sports Tourer in, as am making arrangements for an Extended Test Drive to see if one can live with the car and that it fits in with my Parents wishes :P

Have already looked at the Hatchback and wasn't impressed with Rear Legroom as they have made the Boot bigger, but compromised on Legroom instead :!:

The Estate is on a different wheelbase so hopefully that will be better [-o< , otherwise sadly this car will get completely ruled out :(

Had a look at the New Corolla Estate while I was at Toyota Gatwick on Monday and although it has a slightly longer wheelbase than the Hatchback, I have had to still rule it out because of lack of legroom right behind me when am in the Drivers Seat. You couldn't get 3 in the back :!: :!:

Now waiting for the New Camry to hit the UK Market, that has a longer wheelbase and supposed to have room for 5 passengers in total Image

Prices will start from £22,000 for the Basic Spec :arrow:

2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid Hits UK Showrooms On April 1st

After retiring the Avensis, Toyota is now ready to launch its replacement, the Camry, in the UK on April 1, with deliveries commencing on July 1.

Pricing kicks off from just £5 ($7/€6) under £30,000 ($39,025/€34,720) for the Design model.
Which gets standard LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors at both ends and reversing camera. A leather upholstery, automatic air-con, keyless entry & go, 7-inch infotainment system, heated and power adjustable front seats and others are also standard.

From £31,295 ($40,710/€36,220), customers will be able to order the Camry Excel model.
This trim level adds LED fog lamps, LED dual-beam projector headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels and a wireless charging pad for smartphones. It also comes with a range of driving assist systems such as Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Lane Change Assist.

At launch, the mid-size sedan will be available with a choice of five exterior colors, including the new Graphite Shadow and Platinum White Pearl.

The 2020 Camry will only be available as a Hybrid. This means that it’s powered by a 215 HP hybrid powertrain comprising a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor, which returns between 50.5 and 53.3 mpg UK (5.6-5.3 l/100 km / 42.1-44.4 mpg US) on a combined cycle. Carbon dioxide emissions are rated at 98-101 g/km, according to the grade.
