Although the gas-powered Camry gains a new Special Edition model for 2016, the Camry Hybrid carries over unchanged.
The Camry Hybrid is an excellent choice for shoppers interested in a fuel-efficient midsize sedan. We'd go for an LE model with sparse options, as we think it represents the best value in the lineup. A well-equipped XLE also offers a compelling fuel-efficient sedan with high-end luxury equipment.Find aToyota Camry Hybrid for sale
The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is offered in three trim levels: base-level LE, sporty SE and upscale XLE.
The LE ($27,700) features automatic headlights, keyless access with push-button starting, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch center screen with Toyota's Entune infotainment system, a power driver's seat, cruise control and a USB/iPod interface.
The sporty SE ($28,800) adds some bold touches, including a more aggressive grille, 17-in alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a slightly revised suspension tuned for better handling and roadholding.
Topping the range is the Camry Hybrid XLE ($30,900), which adds features to the LE model's list of equipment. Standard items include 17-in alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats and an improved version of Toyota's Entune system with satellite radio.
Options include a larger 7-in touchscreen, a power sunroof, a navigation system, a wireless cellphone charger, a 10-speaker JBL audio system, a Safety Connect system with emergency assistance and stolen-vehicle notification, and a high-tech safety package with automatic high-beam control, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning.

2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid -- The Fusion Hybrid is a little cheaper than the Camry Hybrid and offers slightly better gas mileage. We also prefer its styling compared to the updated Camry.
2015 Honda Accord Hybrid -- The Accord Hybrid is more expensive than the Camry Hybrid, but its 50 mpg is unrivaled in the midsize-sedan segment. It has more equipment, too. If we were buying, the Accord Hybrid would be near the top of our list.
Used Toyota Avalon Hybrid -- Although the Avalon Hybrid only recently went on sale, used models are starting to make their way into the marketplace. Consider one if you don't think the Camry Hybrid offers enough room or luxury.
