Giving Vanilla A Name

Vanilla. Taken in context, that’s not a compliment, but it be. Vanilla actually has exotic and as spices go, only saffron is costly. Despite the realities, something vanilla is not whistling in

The Toyota Camry has been vanilla countless times its debut, but both the car and the bean something up their sleeves.

If have that right, you they know what doing, Ralph explained. Who is Hannabury? For more than two he made ice cream for Russo’s House in Saugus, Massachusetts.

knows vanilla, and good is hard.

It’s the same with cars. Supercars are compared to a good, bland that starts faithfully day for hundreds of thousands of miles and none of the bad habits that are when you’re talking machinery. The Camry is a riot of to car people, and the Hybrid only with its Hybrid Synergy sopping up whatever visceral you can find in the standard Camry.

The Camry Hybrid is understated its fuel efficiency.

Keeping the metaphor going, even the ingredients can’t stand up to a chef. If the seasoning is overbearing or technique flawed, you’ll expensive raw materials. With the Hybrid, Toyota proves its at making the tricky Hybrid Sedan Souflee.

like every Camry system, this one had an unpleasant edge.

The Camry Hybrid is more distinctive, with its own cluster. different plastic replacing the fake-wood-patterned standard and Hybrid-specific seat fabric in ivory or light gray. The Hybrid shares its acoustic windshield with the V6 model to noise out, and our car had the JBL GreenEdge system for making it. Just every Camry audio this one had an unpleasant trebly that was only somewhat by selecting analog-only radio instead of the HD Radio default.

Our test car was also equipped navigation and the Entune multimedia Entune is Toyota’s answer to and MyFord Touch from with app support (apparently Bing, making restaurant with OpenTable and using to secure access to a matinee) weather, traffic, stocks and With all those distractions at you from the 6.1 inch LCD. a good thing the Camry also has 10 airbags, high steel in the B-pillar and rocker electronic nannies like control, radar-based Blind Monitor and Safety Connect to for help when you do wreck.

The compromises Toyota made for the Hybrid were the right

The tech isn’t quite as to use as systems like Chrysler or even the half-reviled MyFord but it becomes an innocuous part of the quickly. Except for that audio system. It’s they designed in tinnitus the start. The rest of the interior are the same as other Camrys.

the Camry Hybrid is not going to any enthusiasts’ hair on fire, it’ll put electrons and molecules to when you mash the throttle all the way to the for a 7.6-second run to 60 miles per hour, neatly between the more-than-fine model and bonkers-rocketship V6. Low-rolling-resistance are also low capability tires, so little point in trying to thrilling cornering speeds. like a normal person, of the dynamic compromises Toyota for the Camry Hybrid were the ones.

Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy system is flat-out the best of such a setup we’ve yet to

While it’s not a high car in the hot rod sense, the Camry Hybrid is a performer in its own right. Toyota’s development of its Hybrid Synergy system is flat-out the best of such a setup we’ve yet to in a midsize sedan. The new Ford is looking to challenge that, but comers like the Hyundai and Kia can’t touch the Camry level of refinement, seamless between electric propulsion and gas and isolation from the judders of stops and starts.

The gas engine is a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder more torque than It’s been tweaked a water-cooled EGR system that the temperature of exhaust gas that re-routed to the intake to control a move that was previously by enriching the mixture. The new way saves fuel, and the Hybrid Synergy system has been tweaked to efficiency by reducing transaxle improving motor control, and an EV mode has been added time around, too.

Toyota rates the net power the electric and internal-combustion sources at 200 which is more than when you consider the surprisingly 3,190 sub-3,500 pound weight and slick 0.27 coefficient.

The Camry Hybrid is for its normality.

That EV Drive only lasts for 1.6 miles, and if a hill in the way, forget it, not getting far without firing the There’s still the ECO mode you can if you want to really be infuriated by controls, too. When you treat the Camry Hybrid a normal car, i.e. it in Drive and go, only the brakes away the hybrid-ness.

Even at Toyota’s got the regen-to-friction braking very well managed.

The regular Camry isn’t a in any category, while the Camry is exceptional for its normality while EPA fuel economy estimates of 43 per gallon city, 39 mpg highway in LE which drops to 40/38 in XLE Our highway-heavy drive cycle us 38 mpg, bang on the estimates. Or, you get a diesel Passat.

There is one car that offers the Camry and this kind of fuel and that’s the Camry Hybrid, and perhaps the most outstanding of all.
