Overview

Hybrid cars have been around in the market for a decade now. Some are meh while some look like that have been taken out from a museum of future art and some just have their strong roots in the Market, like the Toyota’s own Prius. So Another hybrid by Toyota? This one is more of a premium Hybrid.

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid Sedan, gets a starting windows sticker price of $26,790 and goes all the way up to $30,140. For the present generation of Camry, Toyota has planned to go for Hybrid only. A weird choice but the options available are not complex anymore. Trims come with some standard equipment and the optional are available too for some added cost.

Hybrid cars have been around in the market for a decade now. Some are meh while some look like that have been taken out from a museum of future art and some just have their strong roots in the Market, like the Toyota’s own Prius. So Another hybrid by Toyota? This one is more of a premium Hybrid.

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid Sedan, gets a starting windows sticker price of $26,790 and goes all the way up to $30,140. For the present generation of Camry, Toyota has planned to go for Hybrid only. A weird choice but the options available are not complex anymore. Trims come with some standard equipment and the optional are available too for some added cost.

The Toyota Camry Hybrid comes with an in-line four-cylinder engine which is helped by the electric motor to produce around 200 horse power. Being a hybrid the car runs at electric power at lower speeds and the petrol engine kicks in when the power is required. Sure the car isn’t the best one out there, but the Camry Hybrid Sedan just might be a perfect electric sedan at this price. Stay with us to the end and we’ll tell you.

Features

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid Sedan comes in Hybrid variants only. For the lesser price you get the Camry Hybrid LE with Halogen lights, 6.1” touchscreen for Entune audio system, surprisingly a Backup Camera and power seats. For a little more than a grand you can upgrade to the Camry Hybrid SE trim.

For two and have grand more you get the Camry Hybrid XLE trim with the most standard features packed. Daytime Running Lights and SiriusXM satellite radio are among the added features in this trim over the rest.

Engine

8.8/10

Powering the Camry Hybrid is the electric motor. But only the electric motor can't make 200+ horsepower in non-Tesla cars. So for additional power, a 2.5 liter in-line 4 cylinder engine is coupled with the electric motor, basically for fuel savings. So the Electric motor and petrol engine combined, make 200 horsepower in all the trim levels. This hybrid is a front wheel drive and so the power is transmitted to the front wheels through the Continuously Variable-Speed Transmission.

All the Hybrids in this price range comes with a four-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor to save fuel at lower speeds. Power produced by these engines varies from 190 horsepower to 210 horsepower. And the Toyota Camry falls on the average range of that power. Camry produces the most torque out of its engine at 156 lb.-ft. All the hybrids in this price by Hyundai Sonata comes with a CVT transmission. Sonata comes with the 6-Speed automatic instead.

Acceleration

Toyota Camry Hybrid is quick, not quicker. Unfortunately, the electric motor in this hybrid isn’t powerful enough for the sub-3 seconds 0-60 mph timings. Camry Hybrid can does a 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds. And that is for all the trims levels of Camry Hybrid. Other CVT equipped hybrids do 0-60 mph in a similar time with Ford Fusion being 0.2 seconds slower. While the Sonata Hybrid comes with a 6-Speed Automatic does the 0-60 mph in whole 8 seconds. Toyota Camry Hybrid gets the biggest engine here at 2.5 liter. Others get a 2.0 liter petrol engine.

Braking

The 11.7-inch front brakes and 11.1 inch rear brakes are good enough to make this car comes from 60 mph to a standstill in just 126 feet. That is similar to what and average mid-sized sedan performs. But the car lacks feedback. The brake paddle performs well to even the slightest push but there is absence of the feedback and that make you feel disconnected to the road. Compared the braking distance with other cars in the range and you will find it to be hovering around the 125 feet mark.

Ride and Handling

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid Sedan is comfortable to ride. The suspension in the car works great to keep the car smooth on the road, with premium leather seats, you will have a great driving experience. Although the car lacks feedback. You can turn the steering wheel but you get a hard time keeping the track of how much did it turn. Same is with the paddles. On the turns the car feels sloppy, I wish it to be a little more stiffer on the sharp turns. Despite all these facts, the car still feels great and fun to drive.

Fuel Economy

You knew that the big 2.5-liter engine in the Camry Hybrid is going to effect the fuel economy when compared to the 2.0-liter competition. The Camry Hybrid isn’t off by that much. The combined fuel mileage is just 2 mpg less than Sonata and Fusion Hybrids. While the Accord gives extra 8 miles combined for the same amount of fuel.

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid comes with the 42 mph in the city roads and 38 mph on highways, because the Petrol engine kicks in for beastly power. Toyota Camry Hybrid comes with a fuel capacity of 17 gallons.

Seating and Comfort

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid seats 5 people in it like the every previous model. Two seats in the front including driver and 3 in the rear. If the middle seat in the rear is unoccupied, one can pull out the cup holders along with the armrest from the middle. Seats are fabric in the basic trim level but upgrading to SE and above will get you the leather seats. The cabin is spacious in here. Leg room and headroom should not be any issue for even a taller than average American, even on the rear seats.

The width of the Camry Hybrid is 2 inches smaller than Sonata and an inch smaller than Accord and Fusion, at 71.7 inches.

Exterior Features

Toyota Camry Hybrid comes with the aggressive body styling with big grille up front to give it a mean look. The body lines extended to the rear to provide the aerodynamics. The 2017 year model of the Toyota Camry gets the standard Halogen lights with Daytime Running LED lights. Maybe Toyota will go for LED as standard headlamps in the next year model.

The Headlamps comes with Auto Delay off and dusk sensing features. Sport-tuned suspension keeps the ride stiff in the car on corners and the chrome-tipped exhaust system make sure only the best sound comes out of it. Eh, maybe not the last one. It isnt meant to be a sports car so do not expect eargasm from that exhaust.

For the wheels you get to choose from the 16” steel wheel and 17” alloy wheels with not much wheel design to choose from. 17 inch Alloy wheels are available in Graphite finish and Super Chrome finish. And to give the car a sporty look, the lip spoiler on the rear is just the cherry on the top.

  • Dusk Sensing Headlamps
  • Auto Delay Off Headlamps
  • Projector Beam Headlamps with auto On/Off mode
  • Daytime Running Lights with On/Off
  • Color-keyed heated power Outside Mirror W/ Manual Folding

Competition

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

Hyundai Sonata is a bit cheap than the Camry Hybrid. When taken only the petrol engine into the consideration the Sonata makes 185 BHP compared to 178 BHP in Camry. But coupling with the electric motor changes the game with Camry now making 200 horsepower while the Sonata is at 193 horsepower. None of them is a champ when it comes to handling. I reckon, going with anyone of them just gets the job done.

Ford Fusion Hybrid S

When the Ford Fusion Hybrid is put head-to-head against the Toyota Camry Hybrid, the Camry comes out to be supreme. Camry comes at an affordable price with better engine options, energetic performance, refined cabin, and incredible safety ratings. It seems clear that the Toyota Camry is definitely a better option here.

Honda Accord Hybrid

Comparing the Camry Hybrid with the Accord, the buyer will find the Accord to be cheap and with more features in it. Honda Accord is offered in a wide range of colors and the trim levels are more refined than the Camry. Also the Accord makes more power out of its engine and is as quick as Camry while coming at 2 lbs. lighter than Camry. I would have to say that the Honda Accord would have to be a better option in here.

Final Verdict

Bottom line is that the last year model of current generation Camry Hybrid is not the best out there but you can't go wrong with it. The gas mileage you get is among the better one out there and the cabin gets you the great space. The car lacks the feedback and that will definitely upset many but the fun driving experience and amazing safety ratings will make up for it.
