Toyota Camry Hybrid as One of the Best Family Cars

April 10, 2015

'12_Toyota_Camry_Hybrid_(MIAS_'12)For 2015, the Toyota Camry Hybrid gets better with an exterior styling that is more appealing, an improved ride, an upgraded exterior and a much quieter passenger cabin. The changes are more than anticipated for a mid-cycle refresh of an average sized sedan that has come just three years following the launch of the current generation Camry Hybrid. The Camry Hybrid will be better placed against stylish competitors like the Ford Fusion and the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid sedans. According to Consumer Reports, Camry Hybrid has been listed as one of the recommended buys. The reports have further indicated that the predicted reliability of the Camry is above average.

The government crash testing awarded the 2015 Camry Hybrid a five-star rating. Some of the safety features available in all Camry Hybrid cars include ten air bags. Drivers and front passengers would be well positioned in their seats by the knee air bags in cases of a frontal crash. Additionally, the car has air bags mounted on the rear seats to work in side crashes with side curtain air bags. Standard equipment is a rearview camera. With a $27, 615 starting manufacturer’s retail price that is inclusive of destination charges, the cost of the 2015 Camry Hybrid features a 156-horsepower gasoline engine with four cylinders and a hybrid powertrain of 200 horsepower. The engine power transmission is continuously variable.

The starting retail price for a 2015 Sonata Hybrid is $26, 825 inclusive of the destination charge. The Sonata Hybrid has 199 horsepower and an automatic transmission of six speeds. It has an engine with four cylinders generating 159 horses independently. A 2015 Fusion Hybrid’s starting price including the destination charge is $26, 910, a price that is also lower than the starting retail price for Camry Hybrid. The revamping made by Toyota for all Camry cars has been of great benefit to the Camry Hybrid for 2015.

The Hybrid Synergy Drive system by Toyota remains the same as that of the 2014 Camry Hybrid car. This is the main reason behind the unchanged fuel economy since the year 2014. Among all the gasoline-electric hybrid sedans in the United States market, Toyota Camry Hybrid ranks third with respect to fuel economy. It offers 39 mph on highways and 43 mpg in city driving according to mileage ratings by the federal government. It seems Toyota has perfected the art of transitioning smoothly between gasoline engine and electric power. Transitions were generally seamless in the test Camry Hybrid.
