2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid

We found the 2018 Camry Hybrid to be one of the two best-driving versions of the whole Camry lineup (along with the powerful but thirsty V-6 version) out of the five separate prototype 2018 Camry models we drove last month. The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient version of all-new range of Toyota's popular mid-size sedan, its best-selling vehicle in the U.S. until very recently.

After years of so-so designs that kept the masses happy but offered little excitement, the Camry Hybrid will get a bit more attitude with a complete redesign for 2018.

The Camry’s redesign is anything but subtle, as virtually every piece of metal is new. This new look will add a feeling of aggressiveness to the hybrid sedan lacking since its original debut. Its hood will be 1.6 inches lower, helping with aerodynamics and giving it a more presence versus the outgoing model.

The roofline is also brand-new and unexpectedly coupe-like, adding to the new attitude Toyota is aiming for. Around back, there are wider taillights that wrap further up the rear quarter panels, and vents that swoop down from the outer edges of the taillights to mimic the look of the latest generation Prius.

Inside, the complete redo continues with approx. 1-inch-lower hip points for passengers, delivering a sportier feel and allowing for the swoopy roofline without impacting headroom. The cabin is quite striking, thanks to its stylish dash that swoops left and right around the large central screen. Toyota is going upscale with soft-touch materials throughout, including the dashboard, instrument panel, center console and door trim.

Under the hood will be a next-generation Toyota Hybrid System, which features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and electric drive units. Unfortunately, horsepower and torque specs are not available yet. The unit will mate with a continuously variable transmission with simulated six-speed sequential shift mode. Toyota expects to achieve best-in-class fuel economy.

In terms of safety, the car will come standard with Toyota Safety Sense P, which includes automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist and auto high beams. The current car is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicle, and we expect this to continue to be the case for 2018.

Official pricing starts at $28,685 with destination for the Camry Hybrid LE and ranges up to $33,135 for the XLE. In this price range, key competitors include the Ford Fusion Hybrid ($26,170 to $38,005), the Honda Accord Hybrid ($30,480 to $36,830) and the Kia Optima Hybrid ($26,890 to $31,885).
