This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The 2011 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 highly-adjustable seats that make it easy to find a comfortable driving position. However, some reviewers note that Toyota’s quality is not what it used to be.
- "Cabin materials are generally solid and serviceable." -- Consumer Guide
- "The test Camry Hybrid conveyed a luxury feel because it was so quiet inside." -- MSN
- "Owners...can indulge their ecofriendly consciences in style." -- CNET
The Camry Hybrid seats five in relative comfort. The hybrid's seats are upholstered in a fabric using silk protein and synthetic fibers, designed to be softer than normal fabrics. For a midsize car, rear-seat room is always crucial. Most reviewers find that the rear seats are easily accessible, although one reviewer points out that it may be a squeeze if it’s loaded to full capacity.
- "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
- "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 2011 Camry Hybrid boasts a long list of standard equipment, with intuitive controls for climate and entertainment functions.
- "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 gotten good reviews, although there still are writers who find aspects of the navigation unit disappointing.
- "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. ... voice recognition on the Toyota nav unit was also a little disappointing." -- 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.
- "The battery pack cuts down on trunk space a bit, but it's still surprisingly roomy. We even put a week's worth of groceries back there." -- Detroit News
