Toyota Camry Hybrid Tested by CarAdvice

While we wait for the next Camry that Toyota promises to look and feel totally different, let’s take another look at the current model, which can also be had with a hybrid powertrain.

The only difference that sets the Camry Hybrid apart from the gasoline-powered one is a bluish emblem and the fact that it will move silently in slow traffic.

It comes in two grades - H and HL - and comes with standard features like Blind Spot Monitor, Automatic High Beam, rain sensing wipers, JBL premium audio system with 7-inch display, reverse camera, dual exhaust and Sport driving mode. The HL adds leather accented interior, 17-inch wheels, a rear lip spoiler and some apps for the infotainment system along with other minor details.

Power comes from a 2.5-liter Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain making a total of 205 hp, while still achieving a 5.2 L/100 km fuel economy and 121 g/km CO2 emissions.

The guys over at CarAdvice tested the Camry H model which they say is a “supremely competent cruiser” due to its ride smoothness, comfortable seats, quiet interior and a a bit of wobbliness when it’s pushed into a corner.

On the down side, the Camry hybrid offers a lower towing capacity of only 300 kg compared to the regular one’s 1,200, and maybe the price may seem a bit of a step from the gasoline for some.
