Camry Hybrid
The Camry Hybrid combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor for a combined 200 hp. An automatic transmission is standard. According to EPA estimates, the Camry Hybrid gets 41 mpg in combined city/highway ratings for the LE trim and 40 mpg for the heavier XLE.

  • Battery pack behind the rear seat that powers the electric motor
  • Hybrid system battery obstructs most of the pass-through space for the folding rear seat
  • Braking friction and engine power recharge the battery pack
  • Eco mode trades air-conditioning effectiveness and accelerator sensitivity to maximize gas mileage

  • Backlit gauges have a hybrid display that shows gas mileage history and real-time power flow between the drivetrain components
  • Available features include heated power front seats, leather upholstery, JBL audio and a navigation system

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
