Used Car: 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review
The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid’s great fuel economy, good reliability rating and roomy interior make it a solid choice in its class.
The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid is ranked:
When the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid was new, test drivers liked its spacious interior, good fuel economy and practicality. They also praised its plentiful standard tech features and enjoyable hybrid performance. The 2010 Camry Hybrid isn’t fast from a stop, but test drivers said its smooth acceleration was comparable to the gas-only 2010 Camry. The Camry Hybrid’s strong regenerative brakes and quiet interior were also well-liked by reviewers when the car was new.
Auto critics didn’t find too many downsides with the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid. However, they did say that the steering system was somewhat dull. Additionally, the Camry Hybrid’s trunk is smaller than the gas-only Camry because its battery pack eats up cargo space, though this is a common complaint among hybrid cars. Also, while the Camry Hybrid has strong fuel economy ratings, they fall short compared with top rivals.
The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid has a four-cylinder engine and electric motor, which is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Standard features include push-button start, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control and a six-speaker stereo. Features like leather, heated front seats, a sunroof, navigation and Bluetooth were available in packages or as standalone options when it was new. On the safety front, seven airbags, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are standard on the 2010 Camry Hybrid.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid beats the Camry Hybrid with better fuel economy ratings and a slightly better reliability score. Thanks to all its redeeming qualities, the Fusion Hybrid was named the 2010 North American Car of the Year. Like the 2010 Camry Hybrid, reviewers thought the 2010 Fusion Hybrid delivered a great hybrid driving experience, saying that it drove nearly as well as its gas-only counterpart.
The 2010 Toyota Prius should be on your list if exceptional fuel economy is a must-have. The Prius’ fuel economy figures are at the top of the class and its spacious cabin and cargo area are ideal for families. The Prius also outshines the Camry Hybrid with a better reliability rating. However, if you want a hybrid that drives more like a gas-only car, the 2010 Camry Hybrid is the better choice.
