eerily quiet cabin at traffic lights

All the comfort and security of a Camry

While most cars are reviewed for comfort and quality just as rigorously as performance and reliability, in general the 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid and other hybrid cars have been reviewed more for their gas-sipping abilities than their comfort.

The 2008 Toyota Camry will continue to carry the reputation of a comfortable and quality-built car, the Hybrid included. Cars.com notes that the Camry Hybrid can comfortably seat five occupants and that "cloth seats are standard, but leather is optional."

Auto123 is very impressed with 2008 Camry Hybrid, saying "it delivers the same smooth, composed ride as that of non-hybrid Camrys." As with all electric and hybrid cars, its engine is intrinsically quiet, but construction of the cabin means that little "road or wind noise penetrates" and only when the engine is pushed hard is it that "a heavily censored growl can be detected."

As in most hybrid cars reviewed by TheCarConnection.com, the trunk space has been reduced slightly. The 2008 Camry Hybrid offers 10.6 cubic feet of trunk space; Cars.com points out that the "backseat does fold forward" to allow trunk access from inside the vehicle.

Edmunds.com states that the 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid's "general quality has gone downhill in terms of build quality and materials" but immediately follows that statement with "it's still better than what some other brands offer." Edmunds.com also notes that "What it lacks in polish...the Camry Hybrid makes up for with space, quiet and comfort."


The 2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid offers better quality than most other hybrids in its class and is comfortable inside for the whole family.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
