2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid: The Toyota Camry is large, comfortable, loads an effective V-6 and a silky smooth transmission.

2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid


Performance

Purchasers are progressively changing to four-cylinder engines in their midsize cars, as well as the Camry's held up well in a recent Cars.com Shootout. It's experienced as well as shifts well.

While the optional 18-inch sport-oriented wheels harshened its vaunted ride a little bit, the Camry's travelling convenience is well-established. The guiding isn't crisp, and handling is mediocre, yet if you're going from point A to factor B and also prefer to pay more attention to NPR than the curves in the roadway, this is an excellent option.

The optional 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 that powered my recent tester showed to be incredibly fast, which was the most unexpected aspect of the Camry when driving.

While I can justify the tradeoff in dealing with skill for convenience, I cannot abide the Toyota's poor brakes. It's native in the brand: You have to push as well far down to get the feedback you desire. Slack guiding is one point, however pulling up is as important a vehicle driver input as there is.

Honda's brakes can be extremely hoggish, but Ford, Hyundai and also Kia models react with the normal responses chauffeurs need to expect.

Due to the fact that the Camry is an aging system, the company hasn't dealt with gas mileage in a long time, so it falls short of the majority of rivals. At 20/29 mpg city/highway, 23 mpg incorporated, the V-6 is somewhat behind the Accord's 24 mpg integrated however ahead of the Ford Blend's V-6, at 21 mpg combined. The actual stunner is the brand-new Hyundai Sonata Turbo; rather than a V-6, it provides a turbocharged four-cylinder that has more power compared to the Camry V-6 and gas mileage that bests also the Camry's four-cylinder power plant: 22/33 mpg city/highway, 26 mpg integrated.

Toyota markets a Camry Crossbreed that's extra pricey but returns gas mileage of 31/35 mpg city/highway, 33 mpg integrated. Yet-- you guessed it: The Sonata has a crossbreed variation, too, and it surpasses the Camry smoothly, with gas mileage of 35/40 mpg city/highway, 37 mpg combined.

Inside

As the Camry platform ages, the interior has stood up pretty well versus the competition. Plastics are top notch, also gauged against the Sonata. I suched as the dashboard's easy, somewhat stylish layout, with a glowing centerpiece around the radio controls.

The front seats are extremely vast-- the largest I can recall in a vehicle this size. Spruced up in natural leather that my tester had, they are likewise extremely comfortable, even on long drives. The backseat has lots of room for adult guests and also child-safety seats.

The trunk is additionally on the large side, at 14.5 cubic feet. It features an extremely broad opening, so it's simple to get large things inside.

Attributes & Rates

A big issue for any kind of automobile shopper today is bottom-line price. As sensible as it may be, the Camry does include a rate costs. When checking out equivalent Sonata trims, the Camry is always more pricey, by a margin of $500-$ 2,000. At base degrees, the Sonata comes better complete compared to the Camry, packing typical Bluetooth as well as USB inputs.

If the Camry were greatly superior in all various other aspects, probably it would certainly deserve its greater price. But that's not the situation; Hyundai has a better warranty, which brand's dependability is also enhancing, even if it can't boast Toyota's long performance history.

Safety

Using the federal government's brand-new five-star score system for accident tests, the Camry made 4 celebrities total yet just after making changes in the production of the brand-new model. 2011 version year Camry cars manufactured after November 22, 2010, are those that make the greater, four-star ranking. You can check a car's construct day on a tag affixed to the driver-side doorjamb.

The Camry gained the top score, Great, in the Insurance Coverage Institute for Freeway Safety's frontal and side collision examinations, along with the roof-strength test, but handled just a Limited score in rear accidents, stopping it from gaining a Leading Safety and security Choose classification.

This is an additional area where the Hyundai triumphes. The Sonata is among just a couple of cars on the market to have a government first-class safety and security ranking and to be an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

Camry in the Market

For years, the Toyota Camry has actually been the champ on the market when it involves sales. Even after dramatic recalls in the past 2 years, the auto still covers sales graphes.

All those dedicated customers must value convenience and also peacefulness over all else, because the Camry is targeted by every brand-new car to strike the marketplace, as well as generally it's held its own.

That car shootout of ours I mentioned earlier? The Camry completed a very decent second area against seven of those novices. It was bested just by the Hyundai Sonata.
