2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid OVERVIEW

Even though hybrids are among today's most fashionable vehicle choices, some drivers prefer to have their eco-minded drivelines wear mainstream sheet metal. For this more discreet group, Toyota's Camry Hybrid provides a complete set of hybrid benefits installed in the all-around goodness and normalcy of a Camry.

What's New for 2017

The XLE receives an upgraded Entune infotainment system with navigation and an optional JBL sound system. If you prefer the sounds and maps on your mobile device, the XLE also now features a Qi wireless smartphone charger. The trendy Blue Streak paint which was part of 2016's Special Edition is now available on SE models. Otherwise, the Camry Hybrid carries over unchanged -- even the MSRPs for each trim level are the same as for 2016.

Choosing Your Toyota Camry Hybrid

The Camry Hybrid fits Toyota's well-proven multi-mode HSD hybrid system into the definitive modern family sedan. Bodywork that combines aerodynamic slipperiness with contemporary style encloses a comfortable interior loaded with convenience and tech equipment. A multitude of standard safety features either try to prevent accidents (Toyota's all-encompassing Star Safety System) or protect occupants when they happen (ten airbags, whiplash-mitigating front seats).

Power comes from a 2.5-liter inline-4 and an AC electric motor working in concert to crank out a maximum of 200 horsepower. EPA estimates vary by trim level; the LE earns scores of 42 MPG city and 38 MPG highway while the SE and XLE come in at 40 MPG city and 37 MPG highway. Each wheel is suspended independently and stopped by a disc brake. The steering uses electric power assist which further reduces inefficient drag on the driveline.

The Camry Hybrid is available in three trim levels:


The LE is the essential Camry Hybrid. For a starting prices of $26,790 plus delivery the LE includes dual-zone climate control, touchscreen controls for the infotainment system, a backup camera, and enough cupholders to keep the entire family well-hydrated on long trips.


The SE brings a bit of athleticism to the mix at an MSRP of $27,995. Wheels are upgraded to 17-inch alloys and suspension tuning is stiffer. Revised body trim makes for a more serious appearance. Racing-style paddle shifters are positioned behind a leather-wrapped steering wheel.


The XLE is the Camry Hybrid in formal wear. 17-inch chrome-finish alloy wheels add some flash to the exterior while leather seats class up the cabin. The enhanced Entune system with navigation and SiriusXM is standard, and a further upgrade with JBL speakers and a multitude of apps can also be specified. Blind-spot monitoring and a technology package which includes radar cruise control are also available. Base price is $30,140.

CarsDirect Tip

The only option available for the LE is an upgraded Entune infotainment system. Read the list of standard features closely and check to make sure it lives up to your desires and expectations to make the call on LE versus XLE.
