2010 toyota Camry Hybrid

2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid: The Toyota Camry is the best-selling sedan in the U.S. Its performance history of integrity, safety as well as effectiveness has made it a favorite of cars and truck buyers looking for useful transportation. Not is it a clear sector leader, however, as various other midsize sedans are challenging the Camry on numerous fronts, as well as its strong integrity shows signs of fading.

I drove the SE variation, which attempts to resist the Camry's functional, uninteresting photo with a higher-output four-cylinder, firmer suspension as well as cosmetic add-ons. In person, I was amazed by exactly how little it considered the SE bundle to actually enhance the base Camry's boring attitude. In fact, I prefer the SE's showing off good aim to many various other midsize cars, which in its entirety is primarily a boring sector. Although the SE manages with its look, it isn't a full bundle since there isn't much incentive in the fun-to-drive division.

The Camry lineup starts with the base version and also provides LE, SE, XLE and Crossbreed trim degrees.

Exactly what's Altered for 2010

The Camry has stayed a best-seller even without a few crucial competitive functions, which have been included for 2010: a standard electronic stability system, six-speed automatic transmission as well as optional USB input for regulating, as well as playing, iPods through the stereo. For an evaluation of the USB assimilation, which I was not a follower of, see the video clip to the right. Contrast the 2010 version to the 2009 variation right here. Rivals like the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2010 Honda Accord, 2010 Mazda6 as well as 2010 Chevrolet Malibu have integrated several of those crucial attributes for a couple of model years.

Base models have new front designing, including an upgraded grille with chrome trim as well as new, bigger headlights. The 2010's nose job is an enhancement from the 2009's forgettable front styling. SE designs obtain a blacked-out grille as well as smoked-headlight-housing therapy. The SE is good-looking compared to a regular Camry, thanks to improvements like a reduced front looter, extra aggressive side sills, fog lights, 17-inch five-spoke wheels and also dual tailpipes with a black reduced bumper.

2 brand-new four-cylinder engines are offered. For the first time on a Camry, they team with a six-speed transmission to assist boost gas economic situation; a six-speed manual is standard. The SE makes use of a more effective engine than base, LE and also XLE versions; it makes 179 horse power as opposed to 169 hp. The SE makes 21 even more horsepower compared to the 2009 SE without injuring gas mileage. As a matter of fact, gas mileage has in fact improved 1 mpg in city as well as highway scores. I averaged 29 mpg during a 400-mile week of mostly highway driving. That's not far from the automatic's 32 mpg freeway score. Both four-cylinders are rated with gas mileage of 22/32 mpg city/highway; the manual is ranked at 22/33 mpg.

SE, the "Stylish" Camry

The SE abandons the Camry's standard soft, inconspicuous ride quality with a sport suspension, leading to a trip that's surprisingly tight for a Camry. It's never teeth-jarring, however there's absolutely a taut feeling that could delay traditional Camry buyers. When pressed right into edges, the Camry leans and also understeers, not feeling like a positive performer. Unique to the SE is a 179-hp variation of Toyota's 2.5-liter four-cylinder. When teamed with the brand-new six-speed automatic transmission, this engine made the SE a peppy bundle; a 268-hp V-6 is optional. Equipment modifications were smooth during velocity with very little engine noise even throughout hefty velocity.

A stylish Camry is type of like the requisite "bad-boy" participant of a boy band. No matter exactly how hostile the effort, he's still in a child band. Similarly, the SE can't leave its Camry roots. Camry followers may be drawn to the SE as a sportier option, however, for the differentiating fanatic, the 2009 Mazda6 uses a better-executed sport plan.

Inside as well as Cargo

Here's where the Camry's comfort-focused roots are a benefit to the SE: The front and rear seats are incredibly comfortable. There readies back support with the eight-way power-adjustable seats, as well as soft seat pillows made my long drives achievable, despite having the SE's rigid suspension. For a sport version, the SE's pole positions don't have hostile side reinforcing to maintain you from gliding around, but sculpting corners isn't really the Camry's strong point, so it's not a deal-breaker.

When you go with the SE you shed the folding rear seat choice; in its area is a center pass-through. The folding seats and also a half-foot of trunk area are sacrificed for a back suspension support that's planned to boost handling. With my very little cargo-carrying requirements the large trunk appropriated enough without the folding backseat. Those with more demanding cargo needs, especially longer products, need to stay clear of the SE or XLE, which also does not consist of a folding rear seat.

Attributes and also Pricing

For $22,165, the SE includes every one of the suspension, engine and outside functions-- minus the looter, a $200 alternative. As tested, our SE provided at $27,725, not including the $750 destination cost. Options on our examination vehicle consisted of automatic transmission, navigating system with backup cam, USB input, Bluetooth, JBL stereo, moonroof as well as clever essential system with push-button start.

A base Camry begins at $19,395, so the SE bundle is an affordable method to cheer it up. A base Mazda6 personifies a flashy nature, however, and also starts at $18,450.


The 2010 Camry made Excellent rankings-- the very best score-- in frontal as well as side collision tests by the Insurance coverage Institute for Highway Safety and security; it scored Minimal in back protection, which is why the Camry does not nab the IIHS' Top Safety Select award. The 2009 Honda Accord as well as 2010 Ford Fusion earn the classification.

For a complete list of the Camry's safety functions, see here.


The Camry has actually revealed winding down reliability in current version years with average general rankings by Customer Records as well as a quick spell poor for a specific drivetrain. Presently, there aren't any predictions for the 2010.

Noteworthy in this segment is the 2010 Ford Fusion's predicted top reliability ranking for front-wheel-drive 4- and also six-cylinder designs. The Honda Accord's scores are above average for four- and six-cylinder models, yet they're not as high as the Blend's.

Camry out there

Consumers must drive both the Camry SE as well as various other Camry trims to see if the sport-tuned suspension is also firm for everyday commutes. There are a lot of excellent midsize cars out there. While the 2010 Camry steps up its video game, consumers now have much more strong choices compared to ever.

In the last few years, the competitors has actually overtaken the Camry while its dependability has actually slid a little bit, making the Camry even more of an average choice than a class-leading midsize car.
