2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The Toyota Camry Hybrid (TCH) has a very smooth and quiet ride. You hardly hear the gas motor and the electric components are silent. On the freeway at under 70 MPH can average 38 to 40 MPG. Over 35 MPG in city driving too. Although it is not a Lexus, it is very close to the ES300. Very good deal for the money as a fully loaded TCH can be purchased for about $5000 to $6000 off MRSP.
The MPG is great! Best mileage for a car this size. Also, very quiet and refined interior with awesome navigation system.
Nice to have larger trunk--but otherwise no other improvements are needed.
