The gas-electric version of the 2024 Camry awaits you in five trim packages: LE, SE, SE Nightshade, XLE, and XSE. The commendable Toyota Hybrid System under the hood consists of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a single electric motor that combine to produce 208 hp. They work with an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and front-wheel drivetrain.
As expected from a gas-electric vehicle, the Camry Hybrid really shines with its fuel economy. The EPA has estimated this to reach 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway with the entry-level LE. The other trims are, of course, still impressive, returning 44 city/47 highway.
The base LE has a compelling roster of standard amenities, like auto-on/off bi-LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, touch-sensor lock/unlock and proximity keyless entry (Smart Key), push-button start, a USB-C charging port, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, illuminated vanity mirrors, and a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatbacks. The SE gets a sportier appearance characterized by black exterior trim, side rocker panels, a rear spoiler, and a single exhaust with two chrome tips. It also has heated side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, SofTex-upholstered seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The SE Nightshade receives some additional black exterior bodywork, along with wheels finished in matte bronze. Meanwhile, the XLE improves upon the LE with full LED headlights, chrome exterior detailing, heated side mirrors with turn-signal and blind-spot indicators, a wireless phone charger, a 7-inch multi-information display, heated front seats with passenger power adjustments, leather upholstery (for the seats and steering wheel), wood interior décor, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, and ambient interior lighting. The XSE is a mix between the SE and the XLE, but with gloss-black wheels and patterned-metal interior trim.
Many of those high-end features are available for the lower trims if you order your vehicle from the factory. Other notable options include a moonroof, a heated steering wheel, and a 10-inch head-up display (the moonroof and heated steering wheel are available across the board, but the head-up display is reserved for the XLE and XSE).
The Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ bundle of advanced driver-aid technologies is standard in each trim, providing a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, lane tracing assist, road sign assist, and full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are available for the LE, SE, and SE Nightshade, but they come standard in the XLE and XSE. Those two high-end trims also qualify for front and rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, and a surround-view camera system.
All Camry Hybrids come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a six-speaker sound system. The LE, SE, and SE Nightshade receive a 7-inch touchscreen to manage the aforementioned features, but they’re eligible for the 9-inch touchscreen that’s standard in the XLE and XSE. Only the XLE and XSE can be equipped with the available nine-speaker JBL audio system and integrated navigation.
