A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid

Toyota Camry Hybrid

More and more manufacturers are offering their most popular passenger cars in hybrid models, and America’s top-selling passenger car is no exception. The 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid is fuel-efficient, comfortable, and convenient.

Key Features

The upgraded HSD (hybrid synergy drive) is lighter and better integrated with the car than previous models. This provides better gas mileage and a better overall drive, as well.

Changes for 2012

All Camry models got a serious interior facelift in 2012. The interior of the Camry Hybrid is more spacious and modern than previous Camry models, and the new Toyota Entune multimedia system is a great addition, as well, for in-car entertainment, GPS assistance, and more.

What We Like

We love that the hybrid engine on this car is fuel efficient without losing too much power, and we love how comfortable it is to drive. Whether you choose the LE or XLE trim, you’ll be sure to feel right at home, even when driving for hours at a time.

What Concerns Us

There have been reports of steering issues, especially at highway speeds. When you’re traveling in excess of 55 MPH, you don't want your steering to wander.

Available Models

You can choose a Camry Hybrid in either the LE or XLE trim, depending on which interior features you would like. The biggest difference is the XLE’s dual zone climate control, which the LE does not offer. The engine specs for both trim variants include:

  • Engine – 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with 105-kW Permanent Magnet AC Synchronous Electric Motor plus Ni-MH battery pack
  • Engine power – 156 HP at 5750 RPM
  • Battery power – 141 HP at 4500 RPM
  • Total hybrid power: 200 HP
  • Engine torque – 156 lb-ft at 4500 RPM
  • Battery torque – 199 lb-ft at 0-1500 RPM
  • Fuel efficiency (city/highway) – 43/39 MPG (LE), 41/38 MPG (XLE)

Major Recalls

Some Camry Hybrid models have been recalled due to a lack of calibration in the passenger seat occupant sensing system. The vehicles were recalled to ensure that the passenger seat occupant sensors were in good working order.

Common Issues

Though not incredibly common, the most prevalent complaints with the Camry Hybrid are the steering and interior accessories problems. Some owners report wandering steering, while others mention a very faint clicking when steering. Issues with the interior accessories tend to center around inaccuracies with the navigation system.
