2015 Toyota Camry Real MPG vs. the Competition

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 5/21/2015 Benson Kong

The Motor Trend Real MPG program continues chugging along and is well on its way to the 300-vehicles-tested mark, yet we've never exposed the best-selling passenger car in the U.S. to our standardized cycle. Call it the nonexistent luck of the draw. Real MPG came into its own about a year after the Toyota Camry's 2012 refresh, and our contact with the midsize sedan has been minimal. Until now.

With a considerable 2015 refresh under its belt, we re-established communique with the Camry. All the bases were covered, too, courtesy of a four-cylinder LE, V-6 XSE, and a hybrid bearing SE kit. Just as when Real MPG helped reveal the 2015 Ford F-150 and EcoDiesel-powered Ram 1500 real-world fuel economy before official EPA numbers were released, consumers can lean on Real MPG for the most realistic outlook available.




2015 Toyota Camry LE

The 2.5-liter inline-four and six-speed automatic transmission combination is the Camry's bread-and-butter powertrain. Hence, there are several competitive Real MPG results to compare. The XSE trim is the new kid on the block, but the LE grade we took in does a lot of the Camry's heavy sales lifting.

2015 Toyota Camry XSE V-6

Dental-floss off the V-6 badges, and fans will tell you the six-cylinder Camry is a stoplight sleeper. The high-output engines of the midsize sedan class constitute just a sliver of the segment's sales, and it shows because we haven't had many V-6 and turbo four-cylinder midsizers in for Real MPG testing.

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE

Hybridized midsize sedans pledge to be a much more interesting field this year and next, with the next-generation Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Voltec-underpinned Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid as the known new quantities. We haven't put many through the Real MPG program; the only other test subject was the plug-in version of the Ford Fusion Hybrid.
