2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid
The Bottom Line: $27,050
Fuel Economy: 31 city/35 highway
A top-notch midsized contender and a relatively early entry (introduced for the 2007 model year), the Camry lives in the Prius' shadow. Given a facelift in 2010, the Camry Hybrid steers its own course with a larger cabin than Prius and impressive performance from its 2.4-liter four, which is coupled to an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). "The Camry Hybrid remains one of the best hybrid deals going," said Edmunds.com.
