2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid KBB Expert Review
Fresh from its debut last year, the 8th-generation 2019 Toyota Camry remains one of the most impressive, most value-laden cars you can buy. After years of cautious styling, the Camry finally emerges as a sexy, sporty sedan ready to take on all comers. The changes may have come too late, however, as more Americans move away from sedans and into SUVs. Still, for those shopping the family-sedan market, the Camry is now every bit as attractive as the Honda Accord, Kia Optima and new Nissan Altima. Available V6 and hybrid engines are a bonus, as are the Camry’s standard driver-assist features that remain optional on some competitors. Regrettably, while Apple CarPlay is now standard, Android Auto is nowhere to be found.

With its stellar reputation for reliability, durability and strong resale, the Camry is an easy choice for those who value their hard-earned money. Standard driver assists and a high-mileage hybrid are further reasons to buy, as is the Camry’s newfound sense of style and performance.
You May Not Like This Car If...
Android Auto fans need not apply, nor do those looking for a turbocharged engine. The Camry’s overall passenger and trunk volume falls short of cars like the Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord. Those needing all-wheel drive should look to the Subaru Legacy, Nissan Altima or Ford Fusion.
What's New for 2019
For 2019, the Toyota Camry sedan dips one toe into the 21st-century infotainment pool, adding Apple CarPlay as standard equipment, but still no Android Auto.
For as long as we can remember, the Toyota Camry has been comfortable and compliant, but not exactly invigorating to drive. It was essentially the vanilla ice cream of family sedans. That all changed with last year’s remake. A double-wishbone rear suspension, lower center of gravity and stiffer body structure with a 30-percent increase in torsional rigidity translate to a more dynamic and ultimately fun-to-drive experience. The 2019 Camry feels tauter than the previous-generation car, and the steering is more precise. The new 8-speed automatic transmission is a solid partner and in some models can even be shifted via paddles. The standard 4-cylinder engine that powers the majority of Camrys will suffice for most buyers and has a satisfying blend of performance and efficiency. The optional V6 making over 300 horsepower can easily chirp the front tires. Our surprise favorite is the Camry Hybrid (see Favorite Features).
The Camry Hybrid is the king of its castle, being the first midsize-hybrid sedan to break the 50-mpg barrier, with the current 2019 version earning a combined 52-mpg rating from the EPA. That beats the Honda Accord Hybrid, Kia Optima Hybrid and Ford Fusion Hybrid by a country mile.
TOYOTA SAFETY SENSE P (TSS-P)
While features like adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams are still optional on some competitors, they’re part of the 2019 Toyota Camry’s standard Toyota Safety Sense system. Also along for the ride are collision warning and emergency braking, pedestrian detection and lane-departure warning with steering assist.
The 2019 Camry has a modern interior with a boldly designed dash composed of asymmetrical swoops and curves, a set of nicely bolstered front bucket seats and a spacious rear seat. Controls are straightforward and easy to use, backlit at night in a soothing blue light with overhead white LEDs. Redundant controls on the steering wheel mean you’ll rarely have to use your hands to control the audio, and the big 7- and 8-inch touch-screen infotainment systems are bright and easy to operate. Base models get one USB port, while more expensive versions get three. Options like a huge 10-inch head-up display further distance the Camry from its competition.
Toyota continues to up its game with the Camry's exterior style, and this newest model is its most daring yet. From front to back, the 2019 Camry aims to show off its dynamic athleticism and attitude. Its large front grille is hard to miss, and the Camry's sleek low aluminum hood shows off interesting creases. One of the most surprising features is found on the sporty XSE models, which boast four -- count 'em, four! -- chrome exhaust tips. One of the most distinguishing style elements is the 2-tone Midnight Black Metallic roof, also only available on XSE models.
Notable Standard Equipment
The 2019 Camry’s lineup consists of L, LE, SE, XSE and XLE, with SE and XSE the sportier pair. The least expensive 2019 Toyota Camry L is a solid buy that includes automatic transmission, 6-way-manually adjustable front seats, the TSS-P suite of safety and driving aids, and an infotainment system that bundles a rearview camera and 6-speaker AM/FM audio system with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and USB/auxiliary inputs. For $500 more, we recommend the LE as it includes a power driver's seat, 60/40-split folding rear seats, alarm system and 17-inch alloy wheels. Toyota Care (two years/25,000 miles of complimentary maintenance and 24/7 roadside assistance) is standard.
Notable Optional Equipment
SE models have sportier exterior aesthetics, 18-inch wheels, paddle shifters, sport front seats and sport-tuned suspension. XSE and XLE models have dual-zone climate control, 7-inch configurable instrument display and 8-inch central touch screen, leather seats, selectable drive modes (Eco, Normal, Sport), blind-spot monitoring, panoramic glass roof with moonroof, and electric parking brake. Among the various options are JBL premium audio system with navigation, bird's-eye camera, Qi-compatible wireless phone-charging cradle and head-up display. The standard Entune 3.0 infotainment system has built-in Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes Free and Google voice control.
Under the Hood
The 2019 Toyota Camry offers a choice of three recently revamped powertrains. Most popular is the standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder boasting 203 horsepower (206 in XSE models) and earning up to 41 mpg. The most powerful Camry is the 301-horsepower V6. Both of those engines are mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Camry Hybrid pairs a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine and a battery-powered electric motor for enviable fuel economy of up to 53 mpg. Camry Hybrid LE models actually use a pricier lithium-ion pack, while the higher-trim Camry Hybrid SE and XLE variants use a nickel-metal hydride battery. Toyota reps say the rationale for this has to do with fuel-efficiency goals and pricing strategy. All Camrys are front-wheel drive.
203 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm
184 lb-ft of torque @ 5,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 29/41 mpg (L), 28/39 mpg (LE, SE, XLE, XSE)
301 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm
267 lb-ft of torque @ 4,700 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/33 mpg (V6 XLE), 22/32 mpg (V6 XSE)
2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline-electric hybrid
208 horsepower total
Total torque output: NA
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 51/53 mpg (Hybrid LE), 44/47 mpg (Hybrid SE, XLE)
The 2019 Toyota Camry has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $24,765, including destination charge. For just $505 more, we recommend the better-equipped LE model. The sportier Camry SE bows at just over $26,000, while the very well-equipped XLE and XSE trims start just under $30,000. The V6 Camry, only available in XLE and XSE trim, begins over $35,000, and the Camry Hybrid starts just over $29,000. At these prices, the Camry is in line with a comparably equipped Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. The Camry's starting price is slightly higher than those of the Hyundai Sonata, Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Mazda6, Kia Optima and all-wheel-drive Subaru Legacy. Before buying, check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their Toyota Camry. The Camry's resale value is another bright spot, as Toyota's midsize sedan has historically held its value at or near the top of its class.
