2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid’s final chapter begins at the Washington Auto Show

With the hybrid-only, ninth-generation Toyota Camry scheduled to hit dealer lots this Spring, the hourglass has flipped for the current model, which is available in gas and hybrid variants. With a few months left before it bids adieu to the market, I decided to check out the 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid one last time in person when I was at the 2024 Washington Auto Show in January.

The 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid has a sedated look; to me, it feels like a humble mid-size sedan, just the way it’s supposed to be. I saw it in the SE Nightshade grade, which creates a nice contrast of sporty styling with elements like a mesh-pattern grille, darkened headlights, black rear spoiler, and my personal favorite – 19-inch TRD matte bronze-finished alloy wheels.

I think the interior of the 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a bit too simple by the current standards. It has an elegant dashboard, and I like how it gracefully meets the center console, resembling a waterfall and reminding me of the calm feeling I get whenever I go see one. However, in a time when fully digital instrument clusters, augmented reality head-up displays, and large touchscreen infotainment systems have begun to dominate car interiors, this mid-size hybrid sedan feels somewhat lacking. I do like the fact that Toyota hasn’t skimped on physical controls wherever needed, though.

The 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid is strictly a FWD model. It has a 2.5-liter gas engine assisted by a permanent magnet synchronous motor and married to an E-CVT. The hybrid system produces 208 hp and gives the car an EPA-est. fuel economy of up to 51 MPG (city)/53 MPG (highway)/52 MPG (combined).

The prices of the 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid start at USD 28,855 and go up to USD 34,295. These MSRPs exclude a USD 1,095 delivery, processing, and handling fee.
