2022 Toyota Camry Hybrid - Performance, Price and Photos

Adding a hybrid powertrain to Toyota’s popular mid-size sedan helps it to achieve best in class gas mileage

The Toyota Camry is an institution and has been around for nearly four decades.

With the demand for cross-overs and SUVs through the roof, several automakers have dialed down on their sedan lineup and the Camry has lesser cars to compete with. With the inclusion of a hybrid powertrain, that pool shrinks even further. But why a hybrid mid-size sedan? Simple, gas mileage. With the gas current prices the way they are, the Camry hybrid will outclass most SUVs at the pumps.

The GTS hits the sweet spot in the 911 range, making it the perfect daily driver for the Porsche enthusiast

If you’re a Porsche enthusiast, your heart should skip a beat when you hear these three magical letters: GTS. It stands for Gran Turismo Sport, which is a motorsport homologation title.

More recently, the GTS came back to the 911 (991 generation) in 2011. Fast forward to today and Porsche is currently narrowing the gap between the Carrera S and the Turbo in Porsche’s 911 (992 generation) with the new GTS. Let’s take a closer look at what many are calling the most usable hardcore 911 for the road.

The folks from Weissach have worked their magic to create the most track-focused Cayenne ever

This is the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, the most expensive and track-focused Cayenne ever made (period). The Cayenne of course was responsible for taking the sports SUV formula mainstream nearly two decades ago. Now if you’re not a Porsche fanboy, navigating the Porsche model range can be an incredibly taxing proposition. The Cayenne is no different. Offered in both traditional SUV and Coupe SUV body styles, you have a staggering 13 options to choose from and the Turbo GT (only offered as a Coupe) sits at the very top of that lineup.

Let’s take a closer look at what Porsche has done to distinguish the Cayenne Turbo GT, not just the from rest of the Cayenne range, but also from other super-SUVs within the VW umbrella like the Lamborghini Urus, the Audi RS Q8, and the Bentley Bentayga.

With top-notch hardware and technology, the current M4 range blitzes past its competition in style

The latest top-spec SL Roadster brings significant updates with an all-new platform, refreshed design, nicer interior, and up to date tech

This is the all-new Mercedes-AMG SL 63. The SL, which stands for Sport Licht in German, and translates to Sport Light, is an iconic model for the German marque. It can trace its lineage back nearly seven decades all the way to the early 1950s. But over the generations, the SL class went from being a sports car to a luxury cruiser. Fast forward to today and Merc has decided to ditch the boulevard cruiser body and has taken the SL back to its roots.

The Mercedes-AMG SL debuted in October 2021 and takes on a whole new form factor where it’s gone from a sportscar to a full-on supercar. Internally known as the R232, the seventh-gen SL will replace the AMG-GT Roadster. Also, for the first time in history, the SL will come with 4-Matic AWD as standard.

With unrivaled track-focused performance, the Cayman GT4 RS is one of the best modern Porsche’s

The enthusiast crowd rejoiced when Porsche finally took the wraps off of its highly anticipated Cayman 718 GT4 RS in November last year.

Now, within the Porsche universe, the Cayman has always sat in the shadow of the 911, but the folks over at Weissach have finally given the 718 the performance and chassis upgrades that it has always deserved.

Now, this might sound like a cliché, but the Cayman GT4 RS is genuinely a track weapon for the road, and you’re about to find out why. Let’s dig in.

The AWD GR Corolla blends everyday practicality with rally-bred performance and a manual gearbox

The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla made headlines when it finally broke cover a couple of months ago. This is because, for years, the enthusiast crowd has yearned for its little brother the GR Yaris, but that car was never sold here.

However, Toyota has come full circle and has launched the GR Corolla for 2023.

The rational take on the BMW 3 Series, the Gran Coupe adds more style and practicality to the mix

This is the 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. Now in its second generation, the 4 Series Gran Coupe sits in a strange place within the BMW universe, but that’s exactly what sets it apart. Slotting in between the 3 and the bigger 5 Series has its benefits. The 4 Series packs everything that the 3 Series already does right and then some.

With added practicality thanks to the hatchback style tailgate, more interior room, swoopy fastback looks, and only a small price premium over the 3, you can’t ignore this Gran Coupe’s appeal. It’s no wonder that these things have been flying off the shelves over in Europe. This latest generation sees a number of changes inside and outside, so let’s take a closer look at what’s new for 2022.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is an astonishing, performance sedan. Can it debunk the myth of unreliable Alfas?

Alfa Romeo is an old European name in the car industry and has enjoyed a glorious motorsport history, at least in its earlier decades. That said, while Alfa Romeo has given us some pretty amazing cars, over the last decade and a half – 8C, 4C, Giulia, and Stelvio – the company continues to be perceived as a carmaker that doesn’t have the highest reliability.
