Review: 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid

Review: 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid - Toyota Hybrid Sedan Review - Automobile Magazine
Unlike Toyota’s Prius, which oozes with about as much environmental street cred as Captain Planet, the Camry keeps a low profile. Subtle badging and, in our case, green metallic paint are the only signs this is a $30,000 hybrid, rather than a low-priced four-cylinder model.

To understand the Camry Hybrid’s position in its segment, you need only realize that both the Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima‘s powertains are based on Toyota‘s Hybrid Synergy Drive (Nissan actually licenses the technology, Ford‘s setup is independently developed but essentially identical). If that’s not enough, recall that the Camry has been the best selling car in America for eleven of the last twelve years. Clearly, the Camry is the car Nissan and Ford designers had at the center of their sights. Unfortunately for Toyota, both have been quite successful. While the Camry Hybrid is still a strong choice, its age is starting to show.
