The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a stunning and eco-conscious car that's ideal for drivers who desire a vehicle that is both efficient and magnificent. This hybrid sedan brings together the dependability and usefulness of a Toyota with the efficiency and environmental friendliness of a hybrid. Featuring a range of innovative features and a sleek design, the Camry Hybrid is sure to make an impression. We had the pleasure of taking the 2018 Camry Hybrid for a spin last month, and we must say it was one of the two best driving experiences of the entire Camry lineup (the other being the powerful but gas-guzzling V-6 version). The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient model of the all-new range of Toyota's popular mid-size sedan, which has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. until recently. After years of plain designs that satisfied the majority but lacked excitement, the Camry Hybrid is getting a complete makeover for 2018 that will give it a bit more attitude.
The Camry's redesign is certainly eye-catching, with virtually every piece of metal being brand new. This new look will give the hybrid sedan a feeling of boldness that it hasn't had since its initial debut. Its hood is 1.6 inches lower, which not only improves aerodynamics but also gives it a more powerful presence compared to the previous model.
The stylish, coupe-like roofline is brand-new and adds to the fresh look Toyota is going for. Around the back, the wider taillights wrap up the rear quarter panels, and the vents that swoop down from the outer edges of the taillights mimic the look of the latest generation Prius.
Hop in and you'll notice the lower hip points, giving you a sporty feel and preserving the swoopy roofline without compromising headroom. You'll be impressed by the chic dash that curves left and right around the big central screen. Toyota has gone the extra mile with high-end materials on the dashboard, instrument panel, center console and door trim.
Under the hood, you'll find the brand new Toyota Hybrid System, complete with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and electric drive units. The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is an amazing car that is designed to be both efficient and powerful, provides an impressive 208 horsepower and a smooth, responsive driving experience. It will be connected to a continuously variable transmission with a simulated six-speed sequential shift mode, and Toyota is expecting top-of-the-line fuel economy.
With safety as a priority, the car comes complete with Toyota Safety Sense P, featuring automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist and auto high beams. The car is currently an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ vehicle, and we expect this to stay true for 2018.
The Camry Hybrid LE starts at an affordable price of $28,685 (with destination), and the XLE is available for $33,135. Other hybrid models in the same price range 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).

Its sleek and stylish exterior, spacious and luxurious interior, and efficient and powerful hybrid powertrain are sure to make drivers of all ages smile. Commuting to work or taking a road trip? The Camry Hybrid is an excellent choice! With its advanced safety features and impressive performance, this car will provide years of driving pleasure, all while being kind to the environment.
