When we talked about hybrid vehicles, back in 1997, Toyota introduced a technology applied to the Toyota Prius, which made it a pioneer for hybrid engines.
This type of technology is still accepted in the world automotive market until now.
Camry Hybrid began production in 2012. Its presence replaces the Camry Q type with a 3,500 cc V6 engine while the Toyota Camry Hybrid 2015 is a facelift version.
2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Exterior
The front has a narrowed grille, and the shape follows the headlamp design. The interface looks integrated with the pull of the line on the grille.
The exterior is clearly different from the previous Camry Hybrid model. Changes also occur in turn signal because the placement is separate from the headlights on the bumper.
The headlamps are LED and can emit bright white light and are even more power-efficient. But the fog lamp still uses halogen.
On the side, the hybrid display is getting stronger with multi-spoke rims and Hybrid emblems placed on the fender—both of these as a differentiator with Camry Gasoline. But, overall, it still looks the same as the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
There are some apparent modifications in the rear. Toyota has changed the stop lamp pattern, making it more integrated with the chrome ornamentation of the trunk.
Also, the connecting line between the lights and the chrome color makes it look elegant.
The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid gets the “top of the line” rank, so its features are also impressive, like a parking sensor equipped with a camera.
2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Interior
The interior gives all the luxury. On the dashboard, you will find a variety of soft material.
It looks more attractive with a combination of three colors, such as gray, beige, and black. There are even wooden panels in this section.
The steering wheel has an attractive and luxurious design too. The wood panel is combined with the use of genuine leather, very comfortable when you hold it.
The diameter is also lovely, you will enjoy it more when driving it. Also, there are several functional buttons for MID and head unit settings.
The 2015 Toyota Camry hybrid offers comfort and luxury.
Even passengers will be spoiled thanks to the massage seats that can be arranged using a button put together with armrest, audio, and triple-zone AC temperature.
Privacy is maintained thanks to the rear glass tray, which can be opened or closed with an electric system, so you only need to press the button.
Toyota Camry Hybrid 2015 Features
No doubt, the wireless charging feature is beneficial because it can charge your smartphone while driving. Charging can also be done without using a cable on the armrest.
Its position is on the back of the button used to adjust the rear seat.
Don’t forget about the “In-Car Entertainment System,” a great feature in the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid, as part of JBL Greenedge, which is famous for its sound quality.
The audio produces clear sounds with the use of 10 speakers. There is also a roof monitor, but unfortunately, the quality is not so good compared to the luxury interior.
Triple zone AC settings make the driver, and rear passengers adjust the temperature according to their respective desires.
AC control uses a digital system with physical buttons that can be pressed. But, the choice for blowing directions is only for the driver and front passenger.
The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid engine has a capacity of 2,494 ccs and is configured with 4 cylinders. The system works is the Atkinson cycle; when combustion occurs, the inlet valve will open longer.
The Hybrid Synergy Drive system and VVT-i variable valve adjustment have perfected the performance.
The maximum power is 200 hp and a peak torque of 156 lb-ft. Power from the engine is channeled to the wheels with a CVT transmission system.
You can activate full EV mode when the battery is above half. When you only use batteries, the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid can run at 50 km/hour.
However, the battery runs out quickly when the LED lights up, and the AC is used in slow-moving conditions in traffic jams.
