Do you want a Toyota Camry Hybrid that looks less boring? Toyota believes you do, and so for the 2014.5 lineup, Toyota is releasing the Camry Hybrid SE Limited Edition. This is the same 40-plus-mpg Camry Hybrid you know and love, but it has been given an extra dose of visual pizzazz, thanks to a full body kit that includes a unique front fascia, new headlamps, side rockers, rear bumper and valence, and a rear spoiler. The SE Limited Edition also comes with 17-inch wheels and low-profile tires.
If this looks like the perfect new car for you, you need to run to the dealership immediately, as Toyota says that only 5,000 of these will be built. Since it is based on the standard Camry SE, the SE Limited Edition Hybrid will be offered all the same great colors as the SE, but will feature unique badging to identify its significance.
I have a hard time believing that there is a huge market of buyers that were holding off on purchasing a Camry Hybrid based on looks alone, but Toyota is a multi-billion dollar organization and I am not. They probably know best.
The Camry Hybrid SE Limited Edition will carry a sticker price $27,845 — a $1,500 premium over the standard car — and it will be available with an upgrade package that adds a moonroof and the Display Audio stereo with Navigation. Price for the Upgrade package is $2,215.
