2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Overview

Is the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid a Good Used Car?

Yes, the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a good used car. It has a great reliability rating, its hybrid powertrain never leaves you feeling short on power, and it earns great gas mileage ratings. The Camry rides smoothly, and it provides two rows of adult-friendly seats. Its infotainment system is easy to use as well. The biggest drawback to the Camry Hybrid is its grabby regenerative brakes, but some other hybrids have the same problem.

How Much Does the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Cost to Own?

Expenses for fuel, insurance, maintenance, and repairs for the 2015 Camry Hybrid are estimated to be around $20,200 over five years, or about $4,040 per year.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Camry Hybrid?

With an average list price of $16,900, the 2015 Camry Hybrid will cost you around $11,000 less than the base price for a 2019 Camry Hybrid. That's quite a chunk of change, but the 2019 model – part of a new generation following a 2018 redesign – provides plenty of upgrades over the 2015. In fact, it's better in almost every way. Whether those upgrades are worth the price increase is a matter of personal preference.

The 2019 is more athletic, and it gets much better fuel economy. It also has a larger trunk and comes standard with many more features, including a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, a larger (7-inch) touch screen, adaptive cruise control, and the Toyota Safety Sense suite, which includes a pre-collision warning, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning. It also offers tech features the 2015 doesn't, such as wireless device charging, a head-up display, and a surround-view parking camera.

The 2015 Camry Hybrid has a price range of $13,600 to $20,500. Many new midsize cars start under $24,000, including the 2019 Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, and nonhybrid Toyota Camry. However, no 2019 models have base prices within the 2015 Camry Hybrid's price range, especially not any new hybrids, which tend to cost more than gas-only cars. Hybrids like the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq, Honda Insight, and Toyota Prius are similar in price to the nonhybrid cars listed above.

However, many new small cars cost about as much as (and sometimes less than) the 2015 Camry Hybrid. These include the 2019 Honda Civic, Honda Fit, Kia Forte, Kia Optima, and Toyota Corolla. Though they don't quite get hybrid fuel economy, these are among the most fuel-efficient gas-only cars on the market. They also come with more modern technology than a used Camry Hybrid, and some are available in hatchback and coupe body styles, in addition to a sedan style.

Which Model Year of the Toyota Camry Hybrid Is Best?

The 2015 Camry Hybrid is part of a generation that launched for the 2012 model year. The 2015 model received refreshed exterior styling, suspension changes for some trims, and upgraded interior materials. While noteworthy, those changes aren't significant enough to many buyers, and neither are the main changes for the 2014 model year: an updated navigation system and a standard rearview camera. The 2016 Camry Hybrid likewise didn't see any major updates. All of this means that if you're shopping for a used Camry Hybrid, you can save some money with an older model without missing out on any crucial improvements.

Which Used Toyota Camry Hybrid Is Right for Me?

This Toyota comes in three trim levels: LE Hybrid, SE Hybrid, and XLE Hybrid. The base LE Hybrid trim comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way adjustable front passenger seat, a 4.2-inch multi-information display with customizable settings, and automatic headlights. The standard Entune audio system features a 6.1-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, and a USB port.  

The LE Hybrid trim is well appointed and should serve most hybrid buyers well, but shoppers looking for more should consider the SE or XLE. The SE Hybrid trim adds a sport-tuned suspension and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. The XLE Hybrid trim adds heated and leather-trimmed front seats, satellite radio, and HD Radio.

What Does Toyota's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Toyota offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 85,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the initial sale date or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like a CarFax vehicle history report, towing, and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

Toyota’s CPO program is about average for an affordable carmaker, according to our research. Hyundai and Kia both have better programs.

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid?

The Camry Hybrid and the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid both have a good amount of cabin space, and they deliver similar fuel economy. The Fusion Hybrid offers a few more features, but the Camry has more trunk space. Perhaps the most notable difference between these two is dependability; the Ford's reliability rating is about average, while the Camry Hybrid has a class-leading score. That's significant, and it's enough to give the Camry Hybrid the clear edge here.

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid?

The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid has an attractive, quality interior. However, it isn't quite as spacious (for people or cargo) as its Toyota rival, and the Camry Hybrid has a superior reliability rating. The Honda does have some upsides, such as poised handling, a responsive powertrain, and better fuel economy than the Camry. Both vehicles are good choices, but the Camry Hybrid's extra space and higher reliability rating make it the better option for most buyers.

Which Is Better: 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2015 Toyota Camry?

If you like the Camry Hybrid, you're almost certain to like the nonhybrid 2015 Toyota Camry as well. The nonhybrid Camry offers four-cylinder and V6 engines, with the latter generating much more power than the Camry Hybrid's powertrain. However, neither Camry engine is as fuel-efficient as the hybrid's powertrain. As you might guess, these Camry models are essentially identical in terms of interior space and build quality, though the nonhybrid Camry has a larger trunk and a folding rear seat (the Camry Hybrid’s seat only partially folds). Both have terrific reliability ratings as well. Since both are great used cars, let your instincts guide you toward a winner in this showdown.

2015 Camry Hybrid Performance

How Does the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Drive?

The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid features a four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that combine to produce 200 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard.

This hybrid sedan accelerates quickly and provides plenty of power for all driving situations. It also transitions smoothly from electric to gasoline power. The Camry Hybrid handles curves well enough and delivers a comfortable ride, but the steering doesn't provide that much feedback. Additionally, the regenerative brakes are pretty touchy, though this is fairly common among hybrid vehicles.

Does the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Camry Hybrid LE gets an EPA-estimated 42 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The SE and XLE get slightly lower ratings, at 40/37 mpg city/highway. Those estimates are good for a midsize hybrid, though they're not quite the best in the class.
