2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2016

The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid now comes with a standard navigation system in the XLE trim (optional on the LE and SE trim).

Vehicle Summary

The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the hybrid variation of the best-selling Camry midsize sedan and slots below the larger Avalon Hybrid.

Overview

One powertrain is available in the 2016 Camry Hybrid and it combines a 2.5-liter I-4 with an electric motor for a combined output of 200 hp. The only gearbox available is a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Fuel economy varies base on trim level with the LE rated at 43/38 mpg city/highway and SE and XLE at 40/38 mpg. Trunk capacity is limited to 13.1 cubic feet due to the extra hybrid powertrain components, which eats up space. There's also no split-folding rear seats as in the gas-only Camry, limiting its practicality.

Safety

In addition to the standard dual front, front-side, and side curtain airbags, the 2016 Camry Hybrid comes with knee airbags for front occupants and rear side airbags. On the XLE trim, additional driver assistance and safety aids include blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning,

Trims, Packages, and What's Standard

On the base LE trim, standard features include 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, the Entune infotainment system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, dual-zone climate control, and keyless entry/start. The SE trim adds a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels, Sport fabric SofTex leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and silver interior accents. Additional standard features in the range-topping XLE trim include navigation, a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, heated front seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A JBL premium audio system is available only on the XLE trim while the Entune smartphone apps suite is an optional extra in the SE and XLE.

What We Think

While it isn't a sports sedan, we noted in a 2015 First Test review that the improvements made to the Camry Hybrid's suspension has made it better to drive and more capable than before. The interior also proved to be a nice place to spend time in and is built with good quality materials and has an infotainment system that's user-friendly. However, the car's engine start/stop system isn't very smooth while the brakes tend to be grabby. In a 2015 First Drive review, we noted that even a gentle squeeze puts down too much braking force and isn't very linear. On the road, the Camry Hybrid's cabin is a nice place to spend time it thanks to plenty of insulation from exterior noise.

You'll Like:

  • Great balance of fuel economy and power
  • Quiet cabin
  • User-friendly infotainment system

You Won't Like:

  • Grabby, non-linear brakes
  • Abrupt engine stop/start system
  • Limited trunk space
