Toyota increases the output of the hybrid gasoline-electric system by 8 horsepower, running the total up to 208, more than adequate for a midsize sedan. At the same time, the car gets better fuel economy, boasting mid-40 mpg average.

Maintaining many of the features that made the Camry model the best-selling passenger car in the US, and adding more, suggests that this new car will hold its position in the sales charts.
