You have just stated the key characteristics of a hybrid right? So what is the driving fun?

It can be balance for both powering and economy for other model but confirm it's not for Camry Hybrid.

Agreed,cars like Audi A6 Hybrid or BMW 5 Hybrid...but these 2 cars cost much more.

That's why I think BM still stick to the so-called outdated 4speed for the Altis instead of 'modernising' to CVT.
By the way, anyone knows - the Thai made altis: is the engine and GBox made in Japan or Thailand.

The Altis 1.8 and 2.0 although running CVT have the feel of a AT GB.

I personally love the CVT GB, it's smooth as compare to those AT which I have driven before.

My family owns the latest '13 Camry Hybrid 2.5L model, made in Thailand. To share my driving experienece :
- 2.5L petrol engine, (I recall total petrol + electric motor produce total ~200hp, ~210NM), amazing fuel consumption ranges from 15-21km/L.
- smooth, quiet and comfortable ride (so quiet that often forget to turn off engine after parked)
- need to get used to the audible "siren winding down type of sound" during deceleration/braking, as hybrid mechanism converting braking enegy to charge the battery)
- occassionaly, low static shock occur (when open door and touch the door frame) especially after a long drive
- both driver and passenger front seats come with air-conditioner (great for our type of climate)
- good acceleration delivered in a linear form, (torque ~210NM), but feel engine stretch when above 160km/hour
- great front lighting package (each side comprised of 2 HIDs, 1 LED)
- in my opinion, pricing wise, too pricy here
- IMHO : Overall, a well balance sedan with amazing fuel consumption.

Hi, I'm from Thailand and i would like to share you guys some interesting number of this car from the most reliable car tester in Thailand (every car will be tested according to his standard)
0-100 8.54 sec
80 - 120 6.12 sec
Fuel consumption 18.57km/L (light traffic and maintain the speed at 110km/h for abt 90km)

ps. the way he tests 0-100 is the same as everyday driving, so the number will be higher than factory test
