I'm irked that you posted this. I would've never known if you hadn't!
^^^^ What he saidStab in the back? A bit dramatic, aren't we? Like I said before, the CT300h will probably be a more expensive model that will slot in above the CT200h just like the IS250 and the IS350 coexist. The 1.8L will still get better gas mileage. There really isn't any new tech on the 2.5L hybrid that doesn't exist on the 1.8L hybrid that magically makes the 2.5L more efficient. It will simply be another choice.
51 is great but that's not what most people are getting. I'm getting 42 - 44 mpg. Right in line with the EPA estimate. I use to drive a prius and could get 52+ so I know how to drive a hybrid. I don't hypermile but I also don't ride the gas and coast as much as possible.41 US mpg is very good for a Camry, but the 51 US mpg we've been getting in our CT is better. Plus, in Canada the Camry Hybrid actually costs $400 more than the CT.
