2010 toyota Camry Hybrid

2010 toyota Camry Hybrid: The Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in the U.S. Its record of reliability, safety and also performance has actually made it a fave of automobile buyers searching for useful transportation. No longer is it a clear segment leader, however, as other midsize cars are testing the Camry on a number of fronts, as well as its solid reliability shows signs of fading.

I drove the SE version, which attempts to resist the Camry's useful, uninteresting image with a higher-output four-cylinder, stronger suspension and cosmetic attachments. In person, I was surprised by exactly how little it took for the SE plan to truly boost the base Camry's dull behavior. In fact, I favor the SE's sporting excellent aim to lots of various other midsize sedans, which in its entirety is mainly a shabby segment. Although the SE gets by with its look, it isn't a complete bundle due to the fact that there isn't much reward in the fun-to-drive division.

The Camry schedule begins with the base model and also supplies LE, SE, XLE as well as Crossbreed trim levels.

What's Transformed for 2010

The Camry has actually continued to be a record-breaker even without a few vital affordable features, which have been added for 2010: a conventional electronic security system, six-speed transmission as well as optional USB input for controlling, in addition to having fun, iPods through the stereo. For an assessment of the USB assimilation, which I was not a follower of, see the video to the right. Compare the 2010 design to the 2009 variation here. Rivals like the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2010 Honda Accord, 2010 Mazda6 and also 2010 Chevrolet Malibu have included several of those key attributes for a couple of version years.

Base models have brand-new front designing, consisting of an upgraded grille with chrome trim as well as new, larger headlights. The 2010's nose surgery is an enhancement from the 2009's forgettable front designing. SE designs get a blacked-out grille as well as smoked-headlight-housing treatment. The SE is better-looking than a regular Camry, thanks to improvements like a reduced front looter, extra hostile side sills, fog lights, 17-inch five-spoke wheels and twin tailpipes with a black reduced bumper.

2 brand-new four-cylinder engines are offered. For the first time on a Camry, they team with a six-speed transmission in order to help boost fuel economic situation; a six-speed guidebook is typical. The SE utilizes a much more powerful engine than base, LE as well as XLE models; it makes 179 horse power instead of 169 hp. The SE makes 21 even more horsepower than the 2009 SE without injuring gas mileage. As a matter of fact, gas mileage has actually enhanced 1 mpg in city as well as highway scores. I averaged 29 mpg during a 400-mile week of mostly freeway driving. That's not far from the automatic's 32 mpg freeway score. Both four-cylinders are rated with mileage of 22/32 mpg city/highway; the handbook is ranked at 22/33 mpg.

SE, the "Sporty" Camry

The SE deserts the Camry's traditional soft, unobtrusive ride high quality with a sporting activity suspension, leading to a flight that's remarkably rigid for a Camry. It's never teeth-jarring, yet there's definitely a taut sensation that can avoid typical Camry customers. When pressed into corners, the Camry leans as well as understeers, not feeling like a certain performer. Special to the SE is a 179-hp variation of Toyota's 2.5-liter four-cylinder. When teamed with the brand-new six-speed automatic transmission, this engine made the SE an alert package; a 268-hp V-6 is optional. Gear modifications were smooth during velocity with very little engine noise also during heavy velocity.

A sporty Camry is sort of like the requisite "bad-boy" participant of a kid band. Despite how aggressive the attempt, he's still in a boy band. Similarly, the SE cannot leave its Camry roots. Camry loyalists might be drawn to the SE as a sportier choice, however, for the differentiating enthusiast, the 2009 Mazda6 offers a better-executed sporting activity package.

Inside and Freight

Here's where the Camry's comfort-focused origins are an advantage to the SE: The front as well as back seats are exceptionally comfy. There readies back support with the eight-way power-adjustable seats, and soft seat cushions made my long drives doable, even with the SE's stiff suspension. For a sporting activity design, the SE's front seats don't have aggressive side boosting to maintain you from gliding about, yet sculpting corners isn't the Camry's strength, so it's not a deal-breaker.

When you select the SE you shed the folding backseat alternative; in its place is a center pass-through. The folding seats and also a half-foot of trunk space are given up for a rear suspension brace that's planned to improve handling. With my very little cargo-carrying needs the big trunk appropriated sufficient without the folding backseat. Those with more requiring cargo requirements, specifically longer things, need to avoid the SE or XLE, which also doesn't include a folding rear seat.

Attributes and Rates

For $22,165, the SE includes all of the suspension, engine and outside functions-- minus the looter, a $200 option. As examined, our SE detailed at $27,725, not consisting of the $750 location charge. Alternatives on our test automobile included transmission, navigation system with backup electronic camera, USB input, Bluetooth, JBL stereo, moonroof as well as wise vital system with push-button start.

A base Camry starts at $19,395, so the SE bundle is an inexpensive way to cheer it up. A base Mazda6 embodies a stylish nature, though, and also begins at $18,450.

Safety and security

The 2010 Camry made Good scores-- the best score-- in frontal as well as side crash examinations by the Insurance coverage Institute for Highway Security; it racked up Minimal in back protection, which is why the Camry doesn't snatch the IIHS' Leading Security Select honor. The 2009 Honda Accord as well as 2010 Ford Combination earn the classification.

For a complete list of the Camry's security attributes, see below.


The Camry has actually revealed subsiding integrity in recent model years with ordinary total rankings by Customer Reports and a short spell second-rate for a particular drivetrain. Currently, there aren't any type of predictions for the 2010.

Noteworthy in this segment is the 2010 Ford Blend's predicted top integrity score for front-wheel-drive 4- and also six-cylinder models. The Honda Accord's ratings are above standard for 4- and also six-cylinder versions, yet they're not as high as the Combination's.

Camry on the market

Buyers should drive both the Camry SE and also other Camry trims to see if the sport-tuned suspension is too strong for day-to-day commutes. There are a great deal of great midsize cars available. While the 2010 Camry steps up its game, consumers now have extra solid options than ever.

Over the last few years, the competition has caught up with the Camry while its dependability has slipped a bit, making the Camry even more of an average choice compared to a class-leading midsize car.
