  • 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid

    Toyota can’t be blamed for a lack of effort: The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid is dripping with it. From the creased hood and cascading brow to the Modernist center console enclosed by flickers of chrome, the mid-size stalwart is anything but lazy. Our first, limited exposure to the hybrid sedan left us impressed, but with unanswered questions. Namely, how the nickel-metal hydride battery setup in the XLE Hybrid would fare in providing real-world fuel economy. Also, what kind of Camry Hybrid can customers expect to find on dealers’ lots? After all, the early pre-production prototypes...

    Taken a taxi anywhere recently? Nowadays, there's a pretty good chance that if you have, it's been a hybrid--low running costs and great reliability records are starting to make them popular with drivers, as gas prices creep ever upwards.
