Toyota Camry Hybrid - A Glimpse of Future -
After Driving numerous cars I have had got the pleasure to test drive the new Toyota Camry Hybrid, Camry is always known for its plushness, luxury, space and comparability but this time the package comes with as extra pie in the form of Hybrid Synergy Drive.The car was fun to drive very smooth and silent(obviously it gets the power from a 2.5 l (VVTi) Belt less petrol engine along with generating 160 PS @ 5700 rpm and Torque of 213 NM @ 4500 rpm along with Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor developing 143 PS and 270 NM of Torque every time the motor kicks in, the engine is based on Atkinson cycle to further increase the efficiency of the engine. The power is transferred to front wheels via E-CVT ( Electronically Controlled Variable Transmission system) while driving in city traffic most of the time the car is on battery (motor) mode and the engine usage is very less hence it provides exceptionally fuel efficiency in city driving especially in start stop conditions, while driving on highways it never let you down as the on demand full surge of power is available when gas paddle is pressed hardly ( Both engine and motor combined to provide the best of both worlds)Some of the USP of the Camry Hybrid:-1. Its Full Hybrid (EV MODE, ECO MODE, POWER MODE, BOOST MODE)2. Most spacious Car in the segement.3. Only Hybrid with Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries which boasts to have maintenance free life span of more than 15 years.4. Six Headlamps (4 Projectors and 2 Halogens)5. Rear Seat Power Recline upto 8 degree (provides utmost comfort at rear seat.6. Touch screen DVD with Live Energy display supports B/T and USB function.7. Audio, Rear Sunshade and Rear Seat recline Controls on the Rear Centre armrest.8. Collapsible Headrest for front passenger seat ( A boon when you are guiding the Chauffeur sitting on Rear seat) for obstruction free viewing.9.3 Zone Automatic Climate A/C with NANOE Technology for Moisturized and Bacteria free Air.10. Front Seat Ventilation System for Both front seats ( Cooling Only).11. Best in Class Ground clearance 165 mm for handling Bad Road Conditions.12. Seven Airbags including Driver side knee airbag.Toyota had really worked hard this time on Camry Hybrid. But on the negative side 1. No Sunroof2. No Parking Sensors at the front and rear ( only corner sensors are given) 3. At high speeds cabin noise is there Although its still a nice car with Least Maintenance and least running cost as well. Value for money Product. Environment friendly and a must have car in a collector's den.
