2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The 2010 Camry Hybrid is known for its comfortable, well-thought-out interior. It offers up-to-date electronics, easy-to-use climate and entertainment systems, and adjustable seats that make it easy to find a comfortable driving position. However, some reviews point to a few fit-and-finish problems that are unusual for Toyota.
- "Notably, build and materials quality aren't up to the high standard set by previous-generation Camrys. Some plastics are substandard, and panel fitments aren't uniformly precise. The Camry's interior isn't bad by any means, but it's no longer above average for this segment." -- Edmunds
- "Cabin materials are generally solid and serviceable." -- Consumer Guide
- "The test Camry Hybrid conveyed a luxury feel because it was so quiet inside." -- MSN
- "The Camry Hybrid offers a spacious and airy interior, with a commanding driving position and dashboard design that sits low and away." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Owners...can indulge their ecofriendly consciences in style." -- CNET
The Camry Hybrid seats five in relative comfort, starting with the driver. The hybrid's seats are upholstered in a fabric using silk protein and synthetic fibers, designed to be softer than normal fabrics.
- "The feeling is spacious, with the windshield and dashboard pushed forward and out of your face. The driving position is excellent." -- Car and Driver
- "Taller drivers should take time to adjust to their normal driving position and make sure they have enough headroom -- it's especially tight with the optional moonroof." -- Forbes
- "Seating is firm and fairly comfortable, although the passenger's-seat bottom could be angled up for better thigh support." -- Kelley Blue Book
There are mixed impressions of the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid's rear seats.
- "Rear seat legroom is excellent." -- The Auto Channel
- "The backseat is super roomy and easy to climb into." -- Mother Proof
- "There's plenty of head- and legroom in both the front and back seat for normal sized adults, though adding a fifth person in the back would be pushing it on long drives." -- BusinessWeek
The 2010 Camry Hybrid boasts a long list of standard equipment, with intuitive controls for climate and entertainment functions. For 2010, Toyota has addressed reviewer complaints about the upscale JBL stereo system option. While the old stereo was not intuitive to operate, an improved version is available for 2010 -- but we have found few reviewer comments on the new unit. Some reviewers find the available navigation system difficult to learn.
- "From the Lexus-quiet cabin and intuitive nav system to the up-to-the-minute fuel-mileage display and convenient auxiliary audio jack, the Camry has proven pleasurable to drive." -- Motor Trend
- "The climate and audio controls are surrounded by a beautiful translucent blue trim that's unlike anything I've ever seen on a car; it reminds me a bit of my old iMac." -- Detroit News
- "Camry's cabin looks snazzier than in years past, the general quality has slipped a bit in terms of build quality and materials." -- Edmunds
The Toyota Camry Hybrid's optional navigation system has mostly recevied good reviews.
- "One of the best and most intuitive I've used." -- Detroit News
- "The optional in-dash navigation system has a simple interface, yet it's one of the most feature-packed nav systems available in any car, and it integrates Bluetooth hands-free cell phone operation and a hybrid energy monitor screen." -- Forbes
- "The GPS was reliable around town and quick to recalibrate when we went astray, but the unit completely lost its bearings on a trip through the Santa Cruz Mountains." -- CNET
Due to the battery pack, the Camry Hybrid's trunk space is only 10.6 cubic feet compared to the regular Camry's 15. But many reviewers don't mind. What reviewers do complain about is trunk access. Several also note that the fold-down pass through in the rear seat is even smaller than normal, thanks to the battery pack's position.
