Interior & Exterior Comparison

Toyota Camry Hybrid

The Toyota Camry Hybrid is one of the best cars in the electric and hybrid car class. It has cushioned ride, sufficient power, and as you’d expect good fuel economy. A spacious back seat, a long list of safety features (example), and an easy-to-use infotainment system further boost its appeal. The Toyota Camry Hybrid was designed to appeal to both generations of buyers and it has become fairly popular in some continents including Europe for a number of reasons. First is because of the price competition between Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Toyota Avensis sedan, many European buyers opt for Avensis instead of the Camry Hybrid because the price of Avensis is cheaper than the Camry Hybrid and second is the Camry Hybrid is only sold as a hybrid in Europe and it can’t really compete with the strong powertrain lineup of the Superb sedan.
