The reinvented 2012 Camry Hybrid is all set to drive in. The car comes in a bold, sophisticated new design with more interior space, class-leading safety features, improved driving dynamics and a quieter ride. The car utilizes the altered version of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive and a 2.5 liter gasoline-fed four-cylinder engine claiming a best-in-class fuel economy rating from the 2011 gas-electric Camry.
It comes with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) featuring reduced noise and vibration levels. The hybrid vehicle produces a combined 200 horsepower as output, 13 hp more than the 2011 Camry Hybrid.
It offers a six-speed automatic transmission and an economy of 25 city/35 hwy/ 28 combined as per the EPA estimated mpg ratings.
Two variants of the vehicle – the SE and the XLE – come with a 24-valve, DOHC 3.5 liter V6 and Dual VVT-I offering more power. The 268 horsepower engine offers a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift and an economy of 21 city/30 hwy/25 combined as per the EPA estimated fuel economy ratings.
All the 2012 Camrys come with a class-leading 10 standard airbags and the Toyota’s Star Safety System which includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-locking Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. An electronic tire pressure monitoring system and Smart Stop Technology brake-override system is also featured as standard.
There are different packages including Bluetooth hands-free capability, air conditioning with air-filter, power door locks, projector beam headlamps, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with an auxiliary audio jack and USB with iPod connectivity and much more.
Priced lower than the 2011 Camry, the base Camry Hybrid LE starts at $25900 and the Camry Hybrid XLE starts from $ 27400. A fee of $ 760, for the delivery, processing and handling of every Camry model would be added. The 2012 Camry Hybrid will arrive in the US dealerships this November.
