I purchased a slightly used 2012 with 7000 miles on it. It drives like a dream. Technologically amazing. Smooth, quiet, reliable. Great sound system. 35 mpg. Comfortable for big guys like me (6'3). No complaints.

Toyota is hands down best value midsized hybrid.

After doing my research I was considering the 2013 Fusion, Optima/Sonata for a while, and i wanted a Lexus 300H but my budget wouldn't allow it, even used... So the fusion was the front runner, although as an owner of the 2011 non hybrid Sonata I decided that while ford and Hyundai are very "kewl looking" up and coming autos. If going hybrid, I decided really wanted to stick with the company that had by far the most experience and best track record. Learning the 300H was essentially the same car as the Avalon I began watching the reviews and waiting to buy a used Avalon. Well then I realized that the Camry (while not nearly as "kewl looking" as the Hyundai, Fusion, or even their own Avalon) had the exact same engine (that can do 0-60 in about 7 seconds!!!) I decided to take a trip to my local Toyota dealer and see what they had. I ended up with an XLE Leather, Grey mica metallic for about 10k less than the Avalon XLE, 15K less than the lexus, even less than a comparably equipped Fusion. By now Honda's 2014 had also just come out and got onto my radar, but even that was running about 5K more, didn't seem to offer any real advantages, and toyota has outsold all other hybrids combined in the USA by almost 3 - 1 (75% see wiki hybrid synergy drive). To note planned new mazda/nissan's are going to purchase the toyota's technology (not honda's or ford's #2 and 3 selling manufacturers of hybrids) So the real world now that i own the XLE I have to say this car drives amazing, the 0-60 is very close to my wifes Volkswagen CC, and will torch my old Hyundai. The interior is huge, the hybrid system runs very effectively, and mileage for me has been between 30 and 56 mpg. Now for the most part I'm and extremely aggressive driver and usually I get less average mpg on vehicles than the city rating unless driving 100% on the highway. The look of the car is growing on me, but I don't think it really has anywhere near the kewlness factor of the fusion, Hyundai, or even it's own avalon, and the new Honda even looks a little better IMO. Everything abut this car feels solid, and combined with knowing Toyota's reputation i feel like I have the most reliable midsized hybrid made. The handling while not quite as good as Hyundai, or ford is still very good and certainly adequate. The ride and quiet factor seems much closer to the Lexus/avalon than any of the other mentioned vehicles. I read some reviews that complained of road noise, I have no idea why. Others complained about the seats and while they don't grab you like the regular camry SE, they are still comfortable (unless you're cornering like a maniac then you slide around a bit), and super easy to get in and out from unlike something sporty like my wifes CC. What I don't like is the XLE doesn't have enough standard options, (probably why their prices are so low) but this does allow you to get the options you want without paying a monster price. The trunk while very large really would be a ton better of toyota could have found a way to allow both seats down instead of just a small passthrough. The glovebox is flat instead of downward so things tend to slide out when opening it, there may be a few other small things I can recall right now. Bonus of getting a hybrid is all the feedback about my driving is actually turning me into a better driver, and I'm learning just how inefficient my aggressive driving is, and seem to be motivated to hit even higher mileage highs for each trip (my overall average was 31, and now up to about 38 per week) I love driving this car, the bluetooth and USB integration are great allowing me to use my pandora, and other music apps on my phone, as well as voice activated droid navigation system (which IMO destroys all auto systems that cost 1000's because it's always going to be updated to the latest and greatest). Everyone can actually hear me when using the hands free bluetooth (droid also gives voice activation here as well) I would have liked the JBL upgrade but for the price I'll add my own sub/amp and probably get better sound for a fraction of the price of that too. Looking at the prices of used 2012 camry hybrids shows me that this car holds it's value better than anyone cept possibly Honda so I'd strongly suggest buying new if you are in the market for one of these. The CVT is amazing and you never feel the traditional transmission shift like with other cars. So my 1st Toyota has been an absolute hit so far, we'll see how it stands the test of time....

An early review at what appears to be a great car

Reviewed by Red Dog
December 24, 2013

We've had the Camry for less than two months but already love it. It is very comfortable to ride and drive. The response is amazing for a car that is so economical to drive. My only detractor is the sound and nav system; not in performance but in complexity of controls. I'm sure that over time it will become second nature. It has the ride and feel of a larger car and the quickness and handling of a smaller car. The styling is fine, just a bit common. If this car continues to perform for an extended lifetime, as the ratings predict, I expect the value to improve to five stars.

My Camry Hybrid is a pleasure to drive. I have done about 5000 Kilometers so far and am averaging 45 imperial mpg. My only complaint is that the GPS is totally out of date for Canada.( I have not as yet driven to USA.) The technology in this vehicle is amazing, as is the dealer I dealt with. The maintenance costs provided to me is about a third of what I was given for a same size, different Hybrid manufacturer. ( told that because of extra space taken by Hybrid components, it is difficult to service)

After giving up my 2002 Camry in 2010, I am finally home again in a Camry - this time a hybrid. I love the driver visibility, the roominess and comfort, the handling, the design, and now the MPG - averaging 43mpg!!! Thank you, Toyota!
