The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid continues to excel in the midsize hybrid sedan category. It was initially introduced in 2006, for model year 2007, and represents approximately 15% of the total annual Camry sales. The last major redesign of the Toyota Camry Hybrid occurred in 2012 but updates have continued to keep the vehicle competitive with the Honda Accord Hybrid, Ford Fusion Hybrid, and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid is available as a Hybrid LE, Hybrid SE, or Hybrid XLE. LE signifies the "Luxury Edition" which is considered the base model in terms of styling and features.

The XLE is the "Xtra Luxury Edition" featuring leather-trimmed heated front seats and an auto-dimming rear view mirror reducing glare at night.
The vehicle comes in deep shades of red, blue, and gray. Basic black and white are also available. One variation is the shade of blizzard pearl which is only available in the XLE trim.
Technological advances are added for the 2017 models to enhance consumer satisfaction.

A safe estimate of fuel economy is 40 miles per gallon (mpg) which yields approximately 38 on the highway and 42 in the city. The XLE has a slightly lower rating of 38 mpg with 37 on the highway and 40 in the city because of larger tires.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Toyota Camry Hybrid
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Toyota Camry Hybrid invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
