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.

The redesigned pony car will offer better fuel economy, an improved ride and better handling, Ford says.
