    Yeah, im pretty sure you are still being tracked. The only people on earth not being tracked are in north korea and cuba. Makes you think how free we really are in the west, at least we are told we are free while our movements are being tracked.

    Around the 8 min mark you mention that this is first hybrid car you have driven where you don't feel punished for driving a hybrid. Infiniti had a Q50 hybrid from 2014 to 2018 which put out 360hp and was actually quicker then their non hybrid version.

    The camry hybrid should be able to go faster than 24mph in EV mode, I can go 85mph in the BMW 330e in electric mode. toyota needs to get it together, making reliable cars with crappy gas mileage isn't worth the tradeoff.

    I can't believe they compared a hybrid to a trd v6 totally different class and on top of that they think it's better. Credibility lost. They are hating hard on the trd. It has a substantial more power and more driver focused. Stupid comparison

    The Camry Hybrid is one of the best hybrids out there, and like you said it’s not like a punishment because it’s not slow. It’s the same drivetrain as the RAV4 Hybrid. And if you get the LE trim it will get over 50MPG. Why bother with a Prius?

  • Alex LaJeunesse
    Alex LaJeunesseMonth ago

    I would love if you guys would explain that, especially for Toyota and Honda, “eCVT” doesn’t actually mean a CVT. The engine drives a generator that drives an electric motor that is connected to a planetary gear set that drives the wheels. There’s no belt or pulley so it drives more like a direct drive EV. They just use “e-CVT” as a marketing term and it confuses people.

    you can hear the CVT right at the beginning when accelerating . I'll choose the worse mpg and go for the auto. Drove a 2020 Rav4 XLE through 4 states this december. It was nice, and the CVT was livable. But the lane keep assist was scary, felt like it tried to kill me by driving me into a semi or 2.. so I stopped using it.

    I love my 2020 Camry Hybrid LE. Comfortable, fairly quick, roomy, and 46mpg in late winter weather. With Michigan potholes, I specifically chose to go with the LE trim for its 16” wheels and 65 aspect ratio tires.

  • AppleProGamer

    Im surprised you called this comfortable since I have tried the basic LE hybrid for a drive test and it was so stiff that made me change my mind about considering this car. I think the XSE has better seats.

  • jsponson
    jsponsonMonth ago

    You guys should review the Accord hybrid. It's faster than the 1.5T and the Camry hybrid. BTW having a PHEV is not about having to plug-in (you don't); it's about having the option to plug in. With more energy and more power from the electrical system, the engine doesn't need to rev as much when you do hard accelerations, and you'll get less droning.

    I love that you can get excited about a car like this. This car is a grand slam for what it's _intended to be._ It's NOT a Porsche 911, it's a daily driver that looks awesome, will basically never break down, can actually be a little bit fun, and gets insane MPG.

    I test drove a camry awd and really wanted to love it even if I didn't necessarily need the awd, but I loved the way it handled and it had the necessary amount of power, but I couldn't get comfortable in the interior no matter how hard I tried. The interior is just way to overdesigned. No matter the trim the infotainment design impacts leg room in the front and I would constantly be hitting hard plastic and then the seats where just not that comfortable. My 2000 camry had a wonderful interior that made it just lovely to drive for 21 years. I would not say the same for this car personally, but different cars different people I guess!


    Ecvt it’s a power split no belts better power distribution in all ranges better mpg becouse None parasitic losses simpler yet complex, but from Toyota way better ,,, good Review thankz like it I ll get me one some day😩😂
