The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid is, basically, the standard midsize Camry sedan with a different and far more frugal hybrid powertrain. For the 2010 model year, Toyota has given the Camry Hybrid revised instruments and a very mild restyle that includes a unique and distinctive grille. Those changes can go unnoticed, however, and the Camry Hybrid is largely identical to non-hybrid models.
Car and Driver summarizes the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid as "a pleasing if slightly dull vehicle" overall. The Camry Hybrid, according to Edmunds, is a "very impressive and complete sedan that now has the added benefit of an attractive price." Still, it "doesn't make nearly as much of a green statement as the Prius," notes Car and Driver, because it's so similar to the standard Camry.
Compared to several previous generations of Camry, the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid is larger and has a blunter nose, which Cars.com describes as "more sculpted, angular forms". "Its looks are still fresh," says Motor Trend. Sixteen-inch aluminum wheels come standard, but Cars.com points out that options include "17-inch aluminum wheels".
Inside the 2010 Camry Hybrid, Mother Proof praises the "calming gray leather, chrome accents and cool blue dials." Edmunds specifically calls out "a very family-friendly environment" with looks that are "snazzier than in years past," not to mention the Camry Hybrid's noise suppression, which "rivals King Tut's tomb for quietude."
It's hardly avant-garde, but the styling of the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid is pleasant enough.
