Test Driver Ratings & Comments
Acceleration commentsFaster than a Prius, but still not quick. The Camry Hybrid is hard to love if anything but fuel economy matters.
Braking ratingPoor
Braking commentsDisturbing bushing wind-up at full-ABS application makes the chassis jerk and causes steering to pull over anything but pool-table smooth surfaces. Irregular stopping distance.
Handling ratingPoor
Handling commentsSkid pad: Average grip (better than Prius), but lots of body roll and little steering feedback make it awkward here. Slalom: Very little damping makes Camry susceptible to ANY road irregularity at speed or during transistions. (NOTE: non-defeat stability control is always on.)
