A Toyota Family Welcomes The New 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid

We welcomed a new member into the family – the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid! Sadly, she didn’t get to stay; we got to enjoy her for only a week before being picked up for another week-long adventure elsewhere. 

But, we had a great time while she was here and she was in good company. I often tweet with the folks at Toyota of adventures in our family’s Toyotas. My husband has his commute Camry which has over 300,ooo miles on it and it still keeps going. My 2010 Camry is our family car. His baby – a 1995 Toyota Supra – is so sacred he’s not even let his wife drive it, and his family has quite a few Toyotas in their garage. So we were all excited when the Camry Hybrid showed up at our door.

Such a dream to drive, amazing on gas, and full of fun technology is the headline for this eco-friendly automobile. The exterior has beautiful curves, features a sport mesh front grille, LED headlights, and sexy 18 inch Alloy wheels. Yes, I said wheels are sexy. Have you ever seen some of the ‘upgraded’ rims people pay for? Yikes. 

Toyota was heavy into detail with this year’s redesigned Camry. I love the lighted door sills, and when you’re stepping into your car at night, they’re far more functional than you’d think. Speaking of interior…

There are tons of details and conveniences that have been packed into the interior of the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Not the least of which is the ability to charge your smartphone WIRELESSLY! Available only on the Camry – as I’ve not heard of this feature from ANY other car manufacturer – the wireless charging system lets you simply place your Qi-compatible device on the nonslip surface to charge up wirelessly.

For the still-wired folks, you have that option, as well.

I love the upholstery in the Camry. I have a 2010 Camry and while I love the heated leather seats – which are also a feature in this year’s model – one thing this model has that mine doesn’t is the ultrasuede inserts. Anyone that has had to peel layers of skin off when climbing out of a leather seat in the summer can appreciate the value in this feature.

The sport seats, the moonroof, a very roomy interior, and seats that are noticeably more comfortable, even compared to my 2010 model, are all huge benefits of this year’s Camry.

I might also mention that we drove over 755 miles that week and never filled the gas tank.

We definitely hated to part with the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid. One bad thing about being a Toyota owner – these suckers last forever, so it becomes difficult to convince your husband you NEED a new one. Although, should we decide to upgrade (read: If I nag him enough into upgrading), we know that the resale value of our Toyotas far exceed most other manufacturers.
