The Camry Hybrid gets a score of 93 out of a possible 100 in Consumer Reports' performance tests, the highest in its category. The magazine calls it "refined, comfortable and roomy." It got 38 miles per gallon in the Consumer Reports' fuel economy testing which is slightly lower the EPA's 40 mpg estimate.

When it comes to value, hybrids are helped, not just by their low fuel fuel costs, but also by how well they keep their value over the years, according the magazine. Depreciation, or the loss of value over time, is the single biggest factor in vehicle ownership costs.
