A September pick from established auto firm NADAguides promotes what many buyers see as a winning combination of solid Toyota design and new hybrid technology. NADAguides is identifying the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE as their car of the month for September. Announcing this award just after Labor Day weekend, NADA cited improvements in design for both the outside and inside of this car, as well as the inclusion of Toyota’s new Entune™ tech system, as major draws for this vehicle. Reviewers also praised the driving dynamic of the car, noting that gear shifts and braking feel natural, where some hybrids can drive a little more stiffly in order to incorporate the electric technology.
Toyota staffers are riding the wave of the new attention for the 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE, calling the car “best in class” in terms of safety, fuel economy and more. In a list of highlights for the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE model, NADA mentions an amazing estimated 41 miles per gallon combined for the 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine attached to Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system, along with rapid acceleration in under 8 seconds. Inside the car, there is a redesigned dashboard, comfort and convenience extras, and a lot of trunk space. Along with the Entune™ system, Bluetooth and iPod integration are part of what adds to the new tech appeal of the 2012 Camry model. A state-of-the-art speaker system is another extra that might appeal to some buyers. In terms of safety, 10 standard airbags help protect drivers and passengers, while Toyota adds the newest features like traction control and brake assist, as well as electronic brake force distribution and stability control.
As for cost, Toyota is citing a starting MSRP of just over $27,000.
