Toyota’s extensively re-worked 2015 Camry Hybrid models are priced at $26,790 for the base LE, $27,995 for the new SE, and $29,980 for the premium XLE excluding $825 destination fees.
The new cars will be available this fall and Toyota has replaced or tweaked much in a thorough mid-cycle refresh for its popular Camry line which in 2011 had been comprehensively updated as a new generation.
Hybrid powertrains however carry forward the same as 2014 Camry hybrids, and EPA mileage estimates are for the LE grade: 43 mpg city/39 mpg highway/41 mpg combined; SE and XLE: 40 city/38 highway/40 combined.
In a move reminiscent of Honda’s Accord Hybrid, Toyota has taken the cars further upmarket with more standard features packed in at price points ranging $650 to $2,310 higher depending on model. For reference, 2013/14 model year prices were $26,140 for the LE, and $27,670 for XLE.
Among now-standard features for the base Camry Hybrid LE are 8-way power driver’s seat including power lumbar, and a 4.2-inch TFT multi information display.
The SE includes “Sport fabric” SofTex-trimmed front seats, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic steering wheel with Bluetooth hands-free controls.
When the regular Camry models got an SE trim package in 2011, it sparked many new sales and Toyota hopes to infect its new Hybrid SE with similar popularity.
The biggest jump in prices this year however is the XLE grade commanding $2,310 more than the 2014 XLE.
This model gets leather-trimmed seating with multi-stage heated front seats and 4-way power passenger seat, LED daytime running lights, direct tire pressure monitor system and 17-inch alloy wheels with super chrome finish.
