2018 Camry vs. 2018 Camry Hybrid

toyota camry

You’ve driven a Toyota Camry as your preferred mode of transportation up and down the streets of Venice, Florida, for years. And who can blame you? It’s a fabulous car. But you – like most people – reach a point in time when you wonder if you should consider switching to a hybrid. The only problem is you don’t know what the difference between the 2018 Camry and the 2018 Camry Hybrid is. Learning more about how the two compare and contrast should make the decision a little easier.

Price

Any auto expert will tell that you using the price of a vehicle to weigh whether you should buy it is a bad idea. Unfortunately, not everyone has an income that gives them the freedom of not limiting themselves to a budget. Upgrading to the hybrid comes at a cost. If you’re on a tight budget, you should stick to the standard Camry as it’s cheaper than the hybrid.

Reliability

As you’re driving your new Camry down US-41, you want what every other driver on the road wants – something reliable. Fortunately, you can’t go wrong with either the standard 2018 Camry or the Camry Hybrid in this department. They compare pretty evenly in terms of how much you can trust the vehicle to get you where you need to go.

Comfort

As you’re cruising down US-41, there’s something else you want in addition to reliability – comfort. No one wants to commute up and down the highway in an uncomfortable seat. Will the seat of a standard Camry or a Camry Hybrid hug and support your body in all the right places? Unfortunately, they compare pretty evenly in this department, as well. The reason this is unfortunate is that it makes it even more difficult to choose between the two when they compare evenly in most categories.

Cargo Space

In the cargo space department, the Camry does have slightly more space than the Camry Hybrid. While they technically have the same amount of interior cargo space, it’s the lack of trunk space in the Camry Hybrid that allows the standard Camry to pull ahead in this department. It’s unusual for a hybrid to offer any type of trunk space because of the batteries. So, if you’re someone who needs a trunk – the Camry Hybrid might not be an ideal choice for you.

While there’s no denying the Camry Hybrid is eco-friendlier, the two are pretty evenly matched otherwise. The hybrid version costs more, but the non-hybrid offers more space. Only you can decide which option ultimately fits your needs best.

Now that you better understand some of the key differences between the 2018 Camry and Camry Hybrid, you owe it to yourself to take a trip to Venice Toyota in Venice, Florida, and take these two beauties for a test drive. After all, you need to make sure you’re going to be comfortable behind the wheel!
