Just like its more traditional sibling, the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid in South Burlington, VT has been completely redesigned for the current model year. In addition to a new exterior style which promotes improved aerodynamics and more responsive handling, the all-new Camry Hybrid also picks up better performance scores and higher fuel economy scores from the Environmental Protection Agency. Toyota is also using two different battery systems to help give the new Camry Hybrid its incredible fuel efficiency numbers. The entry-level LE trim uses a lighter lithium-ion battery pack while the sportier SE and top-of-the-line XLE trim use a nickel-metal hydride battery. Anyone interested in taking a closer look at the 2018 Toyota Camry can schedule a test drive with a Heritage Toyota sales professional today.
As we alluded to earlier, the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid in South Burlington, VT is available in three primary trim grades, LE, SE and XLE. Without question, each of version ranks as one of the most well-equipped vehicles in the hybrid sedan class. The base LE model comes with LED headlights, keyless ignition/entry and heated front seats. SE-trimmed versions are the sportiest choice with a standard rear spoiler, sleek and athletic style elements as well as a leather-wrapped steering with paddle shifters. Buyers looking at the XLE will have a heads-up display, two USB ports and wireless smartphone charging as standard features. Finally, all three trim grades offer the innovative Toyota Safety Sense suite of active sensors to help keep drivers out of dangerous situations.
A single powertrain is used to provide the performance for the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Under the hood of all three trims is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a continuously variable transmission; making more than 200 horsepower.
Certainly, all three versions of the 2018 Camry Hybrid offer outstanding fuel economy scores. LE models edge out the SE and XLE by recording 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway. The other two post EPA estimates of 44 mpg (city) and 47 mpg (highway).
A common problem in the world of hybrid sedans is that the battery packs eat up valuable trunk space. The 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid squares this circle through some real feats of engineering. There is 15 cubic-feet of trunk space to use in the new Camry Hybrid.
