2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE

The Good The voice command system in the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE supports dial-by-name with the phone system and artist/album requests from portable music players. Data services such as fuel prices, weather, and traffic come in through satellite radio, while Entune supports Bing searches, Pandora radio, and other apps. Of course, fuel economy is great for a vehicle of this size.

The Bad The Entune smartphone app can be majorly annoying on the Android platform. Voice command system struggles with oddly spelled street and contact names, doesn't offer option to input intersections.

The Bottom Line The Entune-powered 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE offers perhaps the best blend of performance, efficiency, and cabin comfort in Toyota's portfolio of vehicles.
