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, there’s now a entry-level Camry hybrid, the LE. It a stripper, so most people are to think it has enough features. No or fancy touch-screen audio but it gets a few goodies the LE gas car doesn’t such as premium climate It never felt like a car during the test drive.

At a (for a hybrid in this of car) starting price of including shipping, it looks the jewel of the 2012 Camry You don’t have to want a or even have any green to choose the LE hybrid. It’s a good all-around car with fuel economy.

Toyota about 50,000 Camry sales the first full it’s on the market, a huge from about 15,000 year and 23,000 in 2009.

The four-cylinder, carried over the 2011 model, is responsive for most drivers and gets a mileage rating than the old due to the car’s weight reduction of 150 pounds, low rolling-resistance tires and to the automatic transmission tuning.

The likewise a carryover engine, a credible performer, quick to be a little fun as well as delivering passing and dashes up acceleration into fast-moving highway It, too, delivers laudable for the same reasons the four-cylinder But it’s no longer the great it used to seem. Rated a 268 horsepower, it’s no better 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.

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.
