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 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.
