New for 2017

The mid-level Camry Hybrid XLE now comes with wireless smartphone charging as standard equipment, though the feature doesn't work with the iPhone. Blue Streak Metallic is a new color option for the Camry Hybrid SE and is a shade that originally debuted with the 2016 Camry Special Edition model. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Camry Hybrid XLE now comes standard with Toyota's Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation App. The package will pair the infotainment system with the Scout navigation app, which must be downloaded to a compatible personal device. No subscription is needed to operate Scout navigation, which serves as an alternative to the factory integrated navigation unit.

Vehicle Summary

The Camry Hybrid is just one of many hybridized vehicles in Toyota's lineup. Slotting below the Avalon Hybrid, the Camry Hybrid is the fuel-efficient alternative to the standard Camry, which features a four-cylinder or V-6 engine.

Overview

With an estimated EPA rating of 40-42/37-38 mpg city/highway, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient Camry in the model lineup. The powertrain includes a 2.5-liter inline-four that makes 156 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. Completing the hybrid system is an electric motor rated at 141 hp and 199 lb-ft, a nickel-metal hydride battery pack, and a continuously variable transmission routing power to the front wheels. Toyota states the powertrain's total output is 200 hp. Three trim levels are offered starting with the base LE model, the sport-tuned SE, and the range-topping XLE.

Safety

The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid has been crash-tested by NHTSA, which gave the sedan a five-star overall rating. The IIHS still needs to release its test results, though we expect them to match the model-year 2016 Camry Hybrid, rated as a Top Safety Pick+ by the safety institute. The Technology Package is offered on the Camry Hybrid XLE and features a bundle of advanced safety and driver assistance technologies including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and a forward collision prevention system. A blind spot monitor and a rear cross-traffic alert system are offered separately.

What We Think

For those averse to the attention-grabbing Toyota Prius, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid is an ideal alternative thanks to its traditional sedan styling. While the Prius hatch may have more cargo capacity, the Camry Hybrid provides a decent amount of space for five passengers. The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid has a combined output of 200 hp, and acceleration is among the quickest in its class. That said, competitors like the Honda Accord Hybrid have more refined powertrains that do a better job of transitioning from gas to electric power. Also in need of improvement are the Camry's brakes, which are a tad too sensitive to inputs.

Cool Fact

The Camry Hybrid XLE comes standard with a Safety Connect package that comes with a 1-year subscription for services including roadside assistance, collision notification, and a stolen vehicle locator.
