Toyota Camry Hybrid

The Camry Hybrid delivers hybrid tech in an everyday

Driving Toyota’s hybrid is an odd experience. Because superficially you are an ordinary Camry; smart if dull, with plush and handling, a comfy cabin, and nothing that stands

But you are also driving a bit of clever tech. Switch the trip to ‘outside temperature’ and you can drive it like any other Camry; as a bread-and-butter car. Except you won’t need to stop at the too often.

Switch the trip to show the of power from engine to though, or wheels charging the or battery powering the wheels; or, as good, to range remaining on tank, and the picture changes. For Camry is as frugal as a diesel with the bonus that town, it issues almost no from the tailpipe, and can run silently. a whisper-quiet, smoke-free traffic

Toyota says the 2.4-litre engine and the electric motor put out hmm, 110kW/187Nm from the engine and 105kW/270Nm from the motor. Their combined is sent to the tarmac via an electronically CVT auto with only and ‘B’ — for engine — on offer. Performance over-relaxed initially, but if you get assertive the accelerator it will pick up enough; Toyota’s figures a 0-100km/h time of 8.9 seconds, to the standard 2.4’s 10.6, to that electric motor’s off the line.

But you will like the frugal Toyota claims a 6.0-litre I couldn’t match that. But this car is at its very best town — where the engine can stay off for extended as braking and decelerating recharge the and the electric motor propels you at of up to 70km/h. It’s not too bad on the open either, like any car.

But I get much round town into my stint with the and very little highway I was driving to and fro over the Waitakere attempting a bit of a fang along the top to see if it could, and otherwise taking engine combo a fair way out of its zone. And mine, for no Camry is an handler.

Not surprisingly the result was a thirst than Toyota’s claim; but at you could hardly say it guzzled.

The delivers clever hybrid in an everyday model; if Prius is too or you don’t need to wear eco-badge on your sleeve, $500 more will get you bigger, albeit less car.
