The optional telematics system, now that’s a — unlike anything Toyota’s previously. But what it really to be is an attempt to field something as (and, one would hope, reliable and intuitive than) Motor’s Sync system.

The Camry gas-electic hybrid, now really is close to a reinvention.

the gas cars, it doesn’t strike you as a big when you’re regarding it the outside.

But underway, the redone system is a remarkable improvement. For one it’s way more powerful. dash from standstill to 60 mph in a 7.6 seconds, Toyota says. right between the V-6 gas engine’s 6.8 and the four-cylinder’s 8.6, and is brisk to feel like a lot of fun.

It the multimode settings from the Prius. for those who just leave well enough

Eco mode gives the always sluggish throttle response. so your lead-foot types can manage something north of on the mpg meter.

And EV mode tries its best to you running on batteries only. known for its quiet operation as the home at midnight mode, it can be coaxed up to boulevard speed on motor only, but isn’t to spend much interstate time as an electric vehicle.

The setting works just and was used for almost all the test at Toyota’s press preview in scenic area that the town of Roslyn, the setting for the 1990s TV series Northern .

The 2012 Camry hybrid closest so far to exorcising the very shudder you get in hybrids when the gas restarts to provide more Unless you’re among the sensitive of drivers, here’s you won’t notice the transition to gas at all.

There is a little as you slow to stop, but hardly And the brakes now feel natural, is a big change from the abruptness of the version’s transition from braking to electronic, battery-recharging braking.

Maybe a bigger for some folks, the battery has been remodeled so that you get a lot trunk space: 13.1 feet, up from the previous And you now can fold down the right of the rear seat to expand the space, something you couldn’t do on the model.

What’s more, now a cheaper, entry-level Camry the LE. It isn’t a stripper, so most are likely to think it has enough No navi or fancy touch-screen system, but it gets a few goodies the LE gas car have, such as premium control. It never felt a wannabe car during the test

At a modest (for a hybrid in size of car) starting of $26,660, including shipping, it like the jewel of the 2012 re-do. You don’t have to a hybrid, or even have any leanings, to choose the LE hybrid. a very good all-around car exceptional fuel economy.

expects about 50,000 hybrid sales the first year it’s on the market, a jump from about last year and 23,000 in

The gasoline four-cylinder, carried from the 2011 model, is enough for most drivers and a better mileage rating the old one, due to the car’s weight of some 150 pounds, low rolling-resistance and changes to the automatic transmission

The V-6, likewise a carryover remains a credible performer, enough to be a little fun as well as confident passing and dashes up ramps into fast-moving traffic. It, too, delivers mileage for the same reasons the does. But it’s no longer the engine it used to seem. a modest 268 horsepower, it’s no than simply competitive.

Toyota says the SE model truly is tuned for sporting this time. But it feels stiff overall and a bit sluggish in response, rather than the combination of firm yet agile.

all versions’ interiors are a big upgrade. The and feel of materials is higher-class in the car it replaces.

Careful tailoring of and pillars inside yields fractional improvements in width, but the new takes away some Whether you notice will on where you sit and how comfy you are in the current

Control pods are resized and higher on the door panels to more side-flop space for knees, a worthwhile advantage on

Kudos for trimming the width of the pillars, which most have fattened ridiculously to federal roof-crush standards. uses a different design it says will be just as in a rollover, without ruining the ability to see pedestrians in crosswalks as the fat pillars do.

The 2012 Camry is a effort, but it competes with strong rivals. Nothing the new car suggests it will give up its as best-selling car in the U.S. but neither it represent a radical new presentation of a sedan as, say, the Hyundai does.
