2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid Overview

Is the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid a Good Used Car?

The 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a great pick for parents seeking a comfortable, high-tech ride for the family. It’s also a good car for commuters shopping for a fuel-sipping sedan. Because of its family-friendly conveniences and excellent value, the 2014 Camry Hybrid was a finalist for both our Best Hybrid Car for the Money and Best Hybrid Car for Families awards.

This is not another anemic hybrid. The 2014 Camry Hybrid has unusually strong acceleration for the class – it feels almost like driving a gas-only sedan. Its powertrain combines a four-cylinder engine and single electric motor (200 horsepower combined) with a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. The Camry seamlessly transitions between gas and electric power, and the standard continuously variable transmission (a type of automatic transmission) operates smoothly. At 42 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, gas mileage is excellent for a used midsize car but only mediocre for a hybrid. The Camry Hybrid uses more fuel than the average Toyota Prius or Honda Accord Hybrid.

Inside, the 2014 Camry Hybrid has a sophisticated design, high-quality materials covering most surfaces, and well-padded seats. Its seating for five is spacious; the front seats easily accommodate tall travelers, and rear passengers are treated to more legroom than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid or the Chevrolet Malibu provides. The Camry Hybrid has one of the most spacious trunks among hybrid midsize cars, though it isn't quite as large as the nonhybrid Toyota Camry’s cargo space. For securing child safety seats, there are lower anchors on the outboard seats and tether anchors on all three rear seats.

Like most other 2014 midsize hybrids, the Camry Hybrid comes equipped with a lengthy list of standard features. Every model has a touch-screen display (a standard 6.1-inch screen in the base trim and an available 7-inch screen in the upgraded system), a USB port, dual-zone automatic climate control, and six speakers. Midyear 2014.5 models also come with a rearview camera. Tech enthusiasts should look for models with the upgraded Entune Suite App, which connects to your smartphone to power apps like Pandora. Despite the positives, the Camry Hybrid's infotainment system isn't as intuitive as those found in competitors.

How Reliable Is the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid?

Should I Consider Another Used Camry Hybrid?

The current Camry Hybrid generation was launched in 2012 and includes the 2017 model year. Toyota tends to add more standard and optional technology each year, but otherwise, there are few major differences from one year to the next (with the exception of the 2015 model’s significant refresh). That means if a standard rearview camera (added for the 2014.5 model) or blind spot monitoring (first available in 2013) aren't essential to you, you may be able to save money with an older edition.

Which Used Toyota Camry Hybrid Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Camry Hybrid comes in two different trims: LE and XLE. The XLE’s added amenities are minimal (though this trim has available factory features like a rearview camera, leather upholstery, and navigation). Unless you're looking for a luxury-like hybrid, go with the LE. It will save you about $1,300.

You can get a used car with a new-car warranty through Toyota's certified pre-owned program. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2014 Toyota Camry?

The 2014 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid are almost identical, but the hybrid version is a better value. The price difference between the 2017 Camry and the 2017 Camry Hybrid is about $3,700, but the difference between used 2014 models falls to $1,000 or less. The hybrid version will also save you around $350 per year in fuel costs, and it comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control. The only place where the Camry Hybrid comes up short compared to the gas-only Camry is in trunk space. Because of its battery pack, it can carry one less piece of luggage than the nonhybrid version.

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2014 Toyota Prius?

Both the 2014 Toyota Prius and the Camry Hybrid are excellent used cars, and deciding between the two will depend more on your lifestyle than anything else. The front seats in each are comfortable and spacious, but the Camry Hybrid’s back seat is roomier than the Prius’. However, the Prius offers almost twice the amount of cargo space in its hatchback configuration. You'll also get slightly higher fuel economy with the Prius.  

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid?

When it comes to safety and reliability, the Camry Hybrid is slightly better than the 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. It also gets better gas mileage, delivers a smoother ride, and has a larger back seat (though the Camry Hybrid can't match the Sonata Hybrid's massive amount of front seat legroom).
