Which Camry Hybrid does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.8 / 10
The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid is one of the most desirable hybrid sedans on the road. Some might even say that the hybrid version of this popular family sedan is more appealing than the standard gasoline-powered model.
Redesigned last year, the Camry Hybrid is full of modern touches, including a powertrain that now dominates the class for fuel economy. EPA fuel economy estimates for the Camry Hybrid are as high as 52 mpg combined, a number previously reserved for small hatchbacks such as the Toyota Prius. And while the Camry Hybrid certainly isn't a sports car, its acceleration might surprise you. In our tests, the Hybrid zipped from 0 to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds, which is quicker than the standard gasoline-only Camry.
Inside, there's plenty of room and comfort for adults. We also like that safety features such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assist are standard across all trim levels. The Camry's infotainment system can be a bit annoying to use, but Toyota has added Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa (no Android Auto yet) to the mix this year, which should help out a little.
There are some other appealing hybrid sedans. The Accord Hybrid, in particular, is a capable rival that has some slight advantages in handling performance and infotainment features. Overall, though, we're quite fond of the 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It's an enjoyable car with lots to offer.
2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid configurations
The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid is offered in three trim levels: base LE, sporty SE and luxurious XLE. All Camry Hybrids are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor to produce a total of 208 horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is standard. The base LE trim uses a lighter and more energy-efficient lithium-ion battery pack, and the SE and XLE hybrids use a nickel-metal hydride battery.
The LE starts off with features such as 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and heated front seats. Also standard are a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system. With its lithium-ion battery, the LE is rated by the EPA at 52 mpg combined (51 city/53 highway). That's the highest fuel economy rating in the Camry Hybrid lineup.
Standard on every Camry is Toyota Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
Right in the middle of the lineup is the SE, which adds 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-themed styling details, a rear spoiler, simulated-leather upholstery (with fabric inserts), and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles. The SE's nickel-metal hydride battery contributes to a lower EPA fuel economy estimate of 46 mpg combined (44 city/47 highway). The EPA fuel economy rating is the same on the SE and the XLE.
The XLE Hybrid gets all of the base LE's equipment plus unique 18-inch alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable passenger seat, wireless smartphone charging, a head-up display, a larger driver information display, two extra USB ports, a wireless phone charger, an 8-inch touchscreen, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The LE and the SE can be equipped with the blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as extras, and the XLE is available with a top-down parking camera system and a dynamic navigation system bundled with a JBL premium sound system. All three trim levels can be had with a sunroof.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of theToyota Camry LE Hybrid (2.5L 4-cyl hybrid | CVT automatic | FWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2018, the current Camry Hybrid has received some revisions, including the addition of Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa as standard equipment. Otherwise, the Camry Hybrid is unchanged, so our findings remain applicable.

Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. the competition
2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2018 Honda Accord Hybrid
Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. Honda Accord Hybrid
The newest Honda Accord Hybrid is the other top hybrid you could look at. It offers similarly stellar fuel economy ratings (47 mpg combined) along with a respectable combination of standard features and available options. The Accord Hybrid also has a very comfortable interior, excellent build quality and easy-to-use infotainment technology.
Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. Ford Fusion Hybrid
The Ford Fusion Hybrid isn't the newest design, but it's still one of our favorite hybrid sedans. Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use, and the Fusion Hybrid drives more like a sporty four-door than an economy-focused family vehicle. The Ford is down on fuel economy compared to the Camry, however.
Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles you can buy. Depending on the trim you select, a Prius is rated as high as 56 mpg combined, a marginal but notable advantage over the Camry Hybrid. What's more, the Prius is significantly less expensive to start than the Camry Hybrid, so you can get a bit more equipment for the same money. The Prius, however, is smaller. As a result, you'll have less legroom in the back and less lateral room both in the front and the back of the Prius, but the hatchback design makes for more cargo space. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Toyota Prius.
2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid for Sale
The Toyota Camry Hybrid has received several significant improvements over the last few years. Fuel economy, standard safety equipment and interior tech have all been improved. There's also a whole new look on the outside to spruce things up. The Camry Hybrid is separated into three main trim levels, with a breakdown that should be easy for buyers to understand. There's the base LE, then the sportier SE and, at the top, the semi-luxurious XLE.
The base trim level, the LE, is the most efficient of all the Camry Hybrids, checking in with an EPA estimate of 52 mpg combined. It also comes with an extraordinary amount of standard equipment, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning with mitigation. Aside from the impressive safety features, the LE's highlights also include a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, Toyota's Entune Audio interface, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility, and a 7-inch touchscreen display.
If you're looking for a bit more style, the midlevel SE gives you a sporty look and feel with the addition of 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-themed styling details, a rear spoiler, faux leather seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles. Fuel economy on the SE drops a bit, from 52 mpg combined to 46 mpg combined.
At the top of the Camry Hybrid lineup is the XLE trim level. It gets creature comforts such as leather upholstery, a head-up driver display, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and heated exterior mirrors. What's especially nice about the Camry Hybrid is that most of the other options are available across the entire lineup. For example, a sunroof can be had on all three trims. Or if you're looking to add blind-spot monitoring to the LE or the SE trims, that can be done as well.
With all this style and impressive standard equipment, the 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid certainly feels a bit more premium than it has in the past. Its modern suspension gives the Camry Hybrid a better ride quality in the city, especially over broken roads.
For 2019, the Toyota Camry Hybrid also gets the addition of Apple CarPlay compatibility, as well as Amazon Alexa. Unfortunately, Android Auto users have been left out and will have to use Toyota's Entune system, which may be less desirable to tech-savvy buyers. Another drawback that you'll likely notice is the unrefined transition between the hybrid regen braking system and the standard brakes. It's not bad enough that it would scare us away from a test drive, but it will take some getting used to.
In the end, the 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a very efficient and very likable hybrid sedan. Be sure to check out the full breakdown of the Camry Hybrid and have Edmunds help you find the perfect one to fit your needs.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
