2012 Toyota Camry

This second verse is to the first—but also more

#x201C;Don#x2019;t Rock the Boat#x201D; not translate directly into but Toyota engineers clearly words to such effect crafting the new, second-generation hybrid. Like the conventional models, the gas-electric Camry is and better than its forebear, you#x2019;ll need a magnifying to identify many of the changes.

The significant dimensional deviation is a increase in overall height, to a slightly more-wedge-like profile. The hold was stretched to 13.1 feet, representing a gain of 2.5 achieved by reconfiguring and relocating the battery pack. (Because of the location, only the right-side seatback folds to accommodate objects.) Passenger space is up from 101.4 cubic to 102.7, keeping the Camry smack in the middle of the EPA#x2019;s category.

Lighter and More Efficient

the magnifying glass won#x2019;t is that the more extensive use of steel has trimmed what says is about 220 pounds of while increasing rigidity in with the last Camry we tested. Add to that a slick coefficient of drag and improved tires, and you get quicker acceleration and mileage. More on that

Toyota#x2019;s Hybrid Synergy system still relies on one mounted four-cylinder engine, two motor/generators, and a planetary-gear CVT to power the wheels. A slight increase in displacement#x2014;from 2.4 to 2.5 liters#x2014;and a thorough raised power and torque (to 156 hp at rpm and 156 lb-ft at 4500 rpm). to electric drive for the air-conditioning and engine-coolant pump eliminated all drive belts. The main which produces more torque (199 lb-ft) and as much peak power hp) as the engine, drives the wheels and electricity to recharge the battery during deceleration. The smaller restarts the gas engine after at stoplights, generates electricity for the battery and powering the main and regulates the drive ratio the

engine and front wheels.

Inside, the trim has been to address well-deserved gripes. The of brushed aluminum accents, an stitched dash topper, and grain patterns should stem the tide of customers toward Hyundai. The set of three #x201C;optitron#x201D; dials in the hybrid#x2019;s display conveys more range, and energy-flow information the most curious driver desire. Additional energy-related are provided in the central touchscreen with the uplevel audio and systems. Dual-zone automatic control is standard; a tasteful of leather and Ultrasuede seat is an $1160 option in uplevel XLE like our test vehicle. As in Camrys, there are no fewer five audio-and-navigation combinations, but you must opt out of the base LE hybrid to take that walk. one is the base setup. The first (standard in the $28,160 XLE) the 6.1-inch center touchscreen. The step adds navigation and Entune multimedia system. comes the more entertaining JBL and the final step brings a HDD navigation system splashed a seven-inch touchscreen.
