Toyota Camry Hybrid

As most of you know, the Japanese model, the Toyota Camry was not really well received and people did not have a good opinion on it. Competition should be aware either way as the carmaker might have some hidden plans. It is a known fact the there is no mainstream sedan that can outsell the Camry. We will now tell you about the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

The model has a distinctive interior with its own gauge cluster, different plastic trim that replaces the fake-wood-patterned standard trim. It shares its acoustic glass windshield with the V6 model in order to keep noise out. We will also see the JBL GreenEdge audio system that makes its own noise. The tested car was also equipped with navigation and the Entune multimedia system. This is the correspondent of SYNC and MyFord developed by Ford. In terms of safety, you should know the model features 10 airbags, high strength steel in the B-pillar and rocker panels. The list continues with electronic nannies like stability control, Safety Connect to call for help and radar-based Blind Spot Monitor.

Retuning to the interior, the seats are comfortable and decently supportive and the dashboard is topped with stitching. The battery pack enables the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 7.6 seconds. The vehicle features low-resistance tires that are also low capacity tires. The new way saves more fuel, and the Hybrid Synergy drive system has been tweaked to increase efficiency by reducing transaxle losses. This improves motor control. An EV Drive mode has been added this time as well. The new power produced by the electric and internal-combustion sources reach 200 horsepower. This EV Drive mode will only take you for 1.6 miles so you will not get really far like this.
