25 mpg city, 35 highway (four-cylinder); 21/30 (V-6); 43/39 (LE Hybrid)
Gas mileage is a much higher priority than it used to be for mid-size sedan shoppers, and whether or not you think that the 2013 Camry meets your expectations depends on which model you're considering.
Undoubtedly, the Toyota Camry Hybrid is the star of the lineup for efficiency. Its hybrid powertrain achieves an astounding 43 mpg city, 39 highway, according to the EPA.
The latest Camry Hybrid includes a readout for real-time gas mileage, as well as a power-flow display. And as in the Prius, Toyota has added EV Mode and Eco Mode to the Camry Hybrid. Under some situations, given proper charge, the lack of steep hills, and light throttle application, the Camry Hybrid can go about a half-mile or more on electricity alone.
Last year brought a number of changes to the other four-cylinder and V-6 models (lighter weight, earlier torque-converter lockup) aimed at mileage improvements, and ratings went up to 25/35 mpg for four-cylinder models and 21/30 mpg for the V-6.
V-6 versions of the 2013 Camry are no standout, while four-cylinder models are quite fuel-efficient—and the 43-mpg Camry Hybrid might as well be an honorary Prius.
