The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid melds the automaker's proven, hybrid system into America's bread-and-butter sedan. What's not to like? The 2008 Ford Escape looks better inside and out, but the curtain airbags, higher-output V-6 and Sync audio system in the upcoming 2009 model year version are worth the wait.
