2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Se: The Toyota Camry didn't become the bestselling automobile in The U.S.A. for the better part of the last 20 years by falling short of consumer expectations. In terms of dependability credibility, resale value, roominess, fuel economy, functionality, and almost every other statistics that traditional customers care about, the Camry ranks at or near the top of the graphes. But couple of hearts, absolutely not us, would certainly suggest that Toyota's evergreen household sedan has had gotta-have-it appearances or sports-sedan top qualities.

To attend to that perception, Toyota has actually given the Camry a four-corners renovation for 2015. The previous dour and blocky visage gets sportier this year thanks to a longer, reduced, and also angrier-looking snout, a lightly wrinkled as well as folded hood, recently sculpted and also formed flanks, as well as a bigger position. Inside, there's new cheer, as well, with even more soft-touch surfaces, accent stitching, and intense silver trim. The remodel likewise includes the Camry crossbreed, of which there are currently three trim degrees: LE, XLE, and the brand-new SE, the topic of this test. The SE adds some red haze to its green photo with a mesh grille, dark chrome trim, a spoiler, as well as 17-inch light weight aluminum wheels.

Update on the Updates

All 2015 Camrys get structure-stiffening actions using additional area welds in key areas, such as the cowl and also door openings. Toyota also massaged the electrical power steering (to allegedly make it really feel extra like a traditional hydraulically boosted system) and included a dual-stage brake booster in an effort to earn pedal response extra straight.

The SE crossbreed gets certain suspension bushings, shock valving, as well as a back anti-sway bar tuned for a smidgeon much better responsiveness. Its trip is a shade firmer than various other Camrys' however is still optimized for comfort. Guiding reaction, while straight, feels somewhat wooden. As well as brake-pedal action, despite having Toyota's years of technique mixing regenerative and hydraulic systems, has a somewhat remote feel.

Sporty Appearances, Somnambulant Driving

We would love to report that the SE crossbreed's sportier look is matched by a just as extra engaging driving experience. But that's not the instance, and also the examination numbers expose no extra liveliness, either. Inning accordance with our equipment, the 2015 Camry SE crossbreed handled the exact same 178-foot 70-to-0-mph stopping range and 0.78 g of side grip as the last Camry crossbreed we checked, a 2012 XLE version.

In a sense, all Camry crossbreeds are sportier compared to nonhybrid four-cylinder models thanks to an extra powerful drivetrain. Whereas the conventional four-cylinder Camry uses just 178 horsepower and also 170 lb-ft of torque, the mixed 200 steeds of the hybrid's gas-electric powertrain and also the stout low-end torque of the electric motor get this gas-sipper off the line quickly. At 7.2 seconds from remainder to 60 mph, the 2015 Camry crossbreed was a full 2nd quicker to that mark compared to a four-cylinder nonhybrid Camry.

Drink Less

But let's not neglect the primary factor that seven percent of Camry sales until now this model year are hybrids: fuel economy. In spite of the tweaks Toyota visited after the SE hybrid version-- consisting of broader, 215/55 rubber-- its EPA gas mileage score is the same 40/38 mpg city/highway as the XLE hybrid variation. While those aren't the headline-grabbing 43/39-mpg figures of the Camry LE hybrid that rolls on skinnier, ultra-low-rolling-resistance 205/65 -16 tires, it's a big enhancement over the base 2.5-liter's 25/35-mpg ratings. In numerous hundred miles of screening, we averaged 31 mpg with the SE hybrid, 5-mpg thriftier compared to the last standard four-cylinder Camry we evaluated.

The sportier models have been amassing more and more of nonhybrid Camry sales, so Toyota could be into something by supplying an SE variation of the crossbreed. When we have the ability to pitch one against the Ford Fusion hybrid, Hyundai Sonata hybrid, as well as Kia Optima hybrid we'll have the ability to see whether the Camry SE's touch of red mist aids it win the fight of the eco-friendly sedans.
