It says a lot about the Detroit carmakers' troubles in the U.S. car market that the automobile most Americans picture when they think of "a family sedan" is the Toyota Camry. The name, in case you've ever wondered, was derived from the Japanese word for crown: kanmuri.

When it was redesigned for the 2006 model year, a hybrid drivetrain was added to the list of available features. The hybrid Camry has less trunk space than the non-hybrid version, but it can cruise at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour without using its gasoline engine. (The gas engine is needed to accelerate up to cruising speed, though.)
