Toyota Camry Hybrid - The Best Of Both

The 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid ranks 3 out of 23 Affordable Midsize Cars. The Camry Hybrid has many of the features of the conventional Camry -- comfortable cruising and plenty of interior features -- but with better fuel economy.

The 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a nice mixture of performance, comfort and fuel economy. Not only is the car eco-friendly, but it's also a good option among family sedans.

It's also a good value. CNN rates the 2008 Camry Hybrid as one of the most-cost effective hybrids sold today, based on weighing its hybrid price premium against its annual fuel savings.

Forbes magazine says that the Camry Hybrid is the best option for a Los Angeles commuter who pays $4.59 a gallon, because it's priced so near the gas-powered Camry XLE. "The owner of the hybrid breaks even after 18,292 miles," according to Forbes' calculations. "For Los Angeles commuters who drive 15,000 miles a year, that's a little more than a year of driving."

"If you want a cool car, with the latest technology, lots of room, decent styling, outstanding quality, and killer fuel economy (for its size), hurry on down to your Toyota dealer." -- Fort Worth Star-Telegram
