2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid: The Toyota Camry is sizable, comfortable, loads an effective V-6 and also a silky smooth transmission. For all those strengths, though, new competitors from Hyundai, Kia and also Ford are considered on the same level with the front-runner, and also are normally a far better worth.

Where does that leave the Camry? It's a great alternative for commuters or any person else looking for a pleasant ride they do not have to assume excessive regarding. It's not exhilarating, yet it's as strong a vehicle as you can purchase. As well as individuals maintain buying it, every year.

Efficiency

Purchasers are significantly moving to four-cylinder engines in their midsize cars, and the Camry's stood up well in a current Cars.com Shootout. It's skilled and also changes well.

While the optional 18-inch sport-oriented wheels harshened its vaunted ride a little bit, the Camry's travelling convenience is reputable. The steering isn't crisp, and also handling is sub-par, but if you're going from point A to point B as well as prefer to pay more focus on NPR compared to the contours in the road, this is an excellent selection.

The optional 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 that powered my recent tester confirmed to be unbelievably quick, which was one of the most shocking facet of the Camry when traveling.

While I could validate the tradeoff in dealing with finesse for convenience, I cannot abide the Toyota's subpar brakes. It's native to the island in the brand: You have to press also far down to get the reaction you want. Slack steering is one thing, however pulling up is as important a chauffeur input as there is.

Honda's brakes can be overly hoggish, yet Ford, Hyundai and also Kia versions respond with the typical responses motorists should anticipate.

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

Toyota sells a Camry Hybrid that's extra expensive but returns mileage of 31/35 mpg city/highway, 33 mpg incorporated. However-- you presumed it: The Sonata has a hybrid variant, as well, as well as it outdoes the Camry smoothly, with gas mileage of 35/40 mpg city/highway, 37 mpg integrated.

Interior

As the Camry system ages, the inside has held up pretty well against the competition. Plastics are top notch, also determined versus the Sonata. I suched as the dashboard's simple, somewhat stylish design, with a beautiful centerpiece around the radio controls.

The front seats are incredibly wide-- the widest I can recall in a car this size. Spruced up in leather that my tester had, they are also unbelievably comfortable, even on long drives. The rear seat has plenty of room for grown-up guests and also child-safety seats.

The trunk is additionally on the large side, at 14.5 cubic feet. It showcases an exceptionally large opening, so it's easy to get bulky things inside.

Features & Rates

A huge problem for any kind of automobile customer today is bottom-line price. As practical maybe, the Camry does come with a price premium. When considering equal Sonata trims, the Camry is always a lot more costly, by a margin of $500-$ 2,000. At base degrees, the Sonata comes much better equipped than the Camry, loading standard Bluetooth and USB inputs.

If the Camry were vastly remarkable in all other areas, probably it would certainly be worth its higher price. Yet that's not the case; Hyundai has a better guarantee, and that brand's integrity is likewise boosting, even if it can't boast Toyota's lengthy record.

Security

Utilizing the government's brand-new first-class ranking system for accident examinations, the Camry made 4 stars total however only after making changes in the manufacturing of the brand-new version. 2011 version year Camry sedans made after November 22, 2010, are those that make the greater, four-star ranking. You can examine a vehicle's develop date on a label fastened to the driver-side doorjamb.

The Camry earned the top score, Great, in the Insurance Institute for Freeway Security's frontal and also side accident tests, along with the roof-strength examination, but took care of just a Marginal score in back accidents, avoiding it from gaining a Leading Safety Pick designation.

This is one more area where the Hyundai wins out. The Sonata is among just a couple of automobiles on the marketplace to have a government luxury security rating as well as to be an IIHS Top Safety And Security Choose.

Camry in the marketplace

For years, the Toyota Camry has actually been the champion on the market when it concerns sales. After remarkable recalls in the past two years, the vehicle still tops sales graphes.

All those loyal customers should value convenience and serenity over all else, since the Camry is targeted by every new car to hit the marketplace, as well as essentially it's held its own.

That car shootout of ours I mentioned earlier? The Camry finished an extremely respectable second place against 7 of those beginners. It was bested only by the Hyundai Sonata.
