New for 2018

The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is all-new and features a new exterior design, an updated infotainment system, and Toyota's super efficient hybrid system. The car also rides on the new TNGA platform that underpins the Prius and the C-HR, which features a new fully independent suspension design with control arm rear suspension at the rear.

Vehicle Summary

The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the hybrid variant of the Camry midsize sedan and it comes exclusively in a front-drive configuration. In terms of size, the Camry Hybrid slots above the more compact Prius hatchback and the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid but below the larger Avalon sedan.

Overview

The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is powered by a new direct- and port-injected 2.5-liter I-4 that's coupled to an electric motor, a lithium-ion or nickel metal hydride battery, and a CVT. Combined power output is 208 hp. EPA fuel economy ratings are 51/53 mpg city/highway in the base LE trim, which comes equipped with the lithium-ion battery, and 44/47 mpg on the SE and XLE grades, both of which use the nickel metal hydride battery.

Thanks to the TNGA platform, the Camry Hybrid's batteries are now positioned under the rear seats, which means it now has the same 15.1-cubic-foot trunk as the gas-only variants and it can be expanded 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The gas-only Camry's base L trim has the least cargo space at 14.1 cubic feet and doesn't come with split-folding rear seats.

The base Camry Hybrid LE trim comes with LED headlights, 16-inch steel wheels, dual-zone climate control, Toyota's Entune infotainment system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, keyless entry/start, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and a 4.2-inch multi-information display. Move up to the Camry Hybrid SE trim and you get 18-inch alloy wheels, leatherette upholstery, a rear spoiler and a Sport mode for the drive mode selector. The range-topping Camry Hybrid XLE trim gets a 7.0-inch multi-information display, leather upholstery, adjustable rear headrests, a 10-inch head-up display, two extra USB ports, and a chrome-tipped exhaust. Options include a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, a JBL premium audio system, a wireless phone charger, a 360-degree view camera system, and adaptive headlights.

Safety

Like its gas-only sibling, the entire 2018 Camry Hybrid lineup comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense-P, which bundles together forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. Blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert comes standard on the XLE grade or as part of an optional package in the LE and SE trim. The XLE trim also gets rear automatic emergency braking as standard equipment.

What We Think

In a 2018 First Drive review, we said that the new Camry's handling is much improved offers composed handling and a comfortable ride thanks to the new chassis. Steering, however, is light and doesn't have much feel. The cabin is well-insulated thanks to generous amounts of sound deadening. Visibility is excellent thanks to the wide windows and low belt line. Toyota's updated infotainment system is user-friendly but doesn't come with support for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Although the car doesn't have as much power as the available V-6 engine, the Camry Hybrid still offers plenty of power, especially in Sport mode when the electric motor adds extra power. The CVT does a convincing job imitating gears in Sport mode with its quick upshifts; however, when you downshift, it doesn't cause the car to decelerate much.

Cool Fact

The 2018 Camry Hybrid is the first to utilize the electrified version of Toyota's Dynamic Force 2.5-liter I-4, which has a thermal efficiency of 41 percent in hybrid applications.
