Why You’ll Love Driving the 2017 Toyota Camry Hyrbrid
For well over 30 years, the Toyota Camry has been one of the most popular cars in the world. With its dedication to safety, legendary Toyota reliability, and high resale values, it’s no wonder. The 2017 hybrid version is infused with all the latest technology, and with this year’s changes, Toyota has given us many reasons to fall in love with the Camry all over again.
Awesome Mileage and Performance
Toyota has revamped the Camry Hybrid to include a new Synergy Drive. At the core of the system is a powerful 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine. Together with its electric motor, the 2017 Camry Hybrid pushes out an impressive 178 horsepower. You’ll have the choice between a six-speed CVT transmission and a six-speed manual gearbox.
Despite all this power, the Camry boasts industry-leading fuel economy. With a combined 41 miles per gallon, the 2017 Camry Hybrid will deliver all the comfort and convenience of a full-sized sedan, yet you’ll still enjoy the fuel economy found in a subcompact car.
Sweet New Looks
The Camry looks better than ever with its all-new aggressive styling. The front fascia now features a sport mesh grille that provides curb appeal as well as function, thanks to increased air flow. Lighting has also been upgraded to LED headlights and LED daytime running lights. The rear end is likewise restyled, with upgrades such as LED taillights, a revised bumper, and chrome dual exhaust tips. 17-inch alloy wheels complete the picture, with optional 18 and 19-inch alloys on offer.
Higher Tech for Lower Cost
Several interior upgrades have taken place for the 2017 Camry Hybrid, yet its sticker price will be almost exactly the same as last year’s model. Qi wireless device charging, Entune infotainment with navigation, and JBL audio are now part of the Hybrid XLE trim package.
The center stack will now be less cluttered, thanks to the touch screen system replacing many of the controls. Technology in the Hybrid Camry is unbeatable, with offerings such as Wi-Fi hotspot capability, USB input, and Bluetooth connectivity.
The new Hybrid Camry is built upon a platform that’s two inches longer than last year’s model. This may not seem like much, but thanks to this change, the 2017 will feature a more spacious cabin with extra legroom for passengers in the back seat.
Now standard is an eight-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support. The customizable TFT multi-information display provides the driver with information that can include tire pressure, navigation, fuel economy, energy monitoring, and more.
Where safety is concerned, Toyota pulled out all the stops when putting together the 2017 Hybrid. This Camry will offer technologies that include lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, rear cross-traffic alert, pre-collision warning, blind spot monitoring, dynamic radar cruise control, and lane change alert systems.
The Camry has always been a great car, but the recent addition of the new Synergy Hybrid system, plus its sporty new look, makes it a better time than ever to invest in a new Camry Hybrid. Take one for a test drive and start your love affair today.
