For the 2014 model year, Toyota took the sedan we all know (and love) and made it even sexier. With the hybrid powertrain comes sleek lines and subtle curves throughout the 2014 Camry Hybrid’s body that creates an aerodynamic silhouette, allowing the car to receive optimal fuel economy. The elegantly designed front fascia adds a touch of elegance to the sedan, while the sharply styled rear end makes sure you don’t forget the hybrid.

For its hybrid power, the 2014 Camry Hybrid combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which is capable of laying down 156 hp, with an electric motor and battery pack. The car is capable of being propelled by the electric motor alone at low speeds, making it extremely fuel-efficient. When the engine and motor work together though, it can crank out up to 200 hp, while a continuously variable transmission (CVT) brings power to the front wheels.
