Look over 60 mpg is my new standard!
Without question, the Toyota Camry hybrid electric car was the most fuel-efficient of any hybrid tested. Let’s not forget that in addition to the fuel economy, the Camry hybrid changed it’s design inside and out. Therefore, this car is a new breed to create a standard.
MSI while this hybrid XLE rated at 39 miles per gallon (MPG) the best, it was an understatement.
This car performed on average in the 40 MPG with styling of a Lexus.
Luxury Feeling Additions to the XLE
With respect to another Toyota owned brand Lexus, this XLE had many lower end versions of a Lexus today. The look and feel of the car was leather with accent stitching. The sound system was all there and seating was premium leather feel. It had all the luxury controls of a Lexus for the driver and passengers. It did include rear cameras for backing up, SolarTech glass so it doesn’t get too bright or hot.
With its Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain, the Camry Hybrid XLE rated EPA with 43 mpg city/39 mpg highway/41 mpg combined fuel economy. However in ECO mode on a decently warm day but not too warm. As well as in EV Drive mode allows the driver to go all EV home. So under certain conditions, to run the Camry Hybrid solely on the electric motor for up to 1.6 miles at lower speeds (below about 25 mph). The 62 MPG test includes coming home at lower than 24 mph.
