Is the Camry the most efficient car in its class?

    According to Consumer Reports, the redesigned Toyota Camry Hybrid boasts the best overall fuel economy of any four-door family sedan we’ve tested, returning 34 mpg overall, as well as 28 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. The interior is quiet and comfortable. Handling is relatively responsive, but the suspension is tuned for comfort rather than performance. Unlike the Honda Accord Hybrid, the Camry delivers better fuel economy rather than performance. Both the four- and six-cylinder conventional gasoline-powered versions of the Camry also deliver very good mileage.

    However, in the second link: DETROIT, Jan. 9, 2009 – The Ford Fusion is now America’s most fuel efficient mid-size sedan for both hybrid and conventional gasoline models.

    Ford announced today that new four-cylinder Ford Fusion S has been certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at 34 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city – beating both the gasoline-powered Camry and Honda Accord models. The news follows certification of the Ford Fusion Hybrid at 41 mpg rating in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, topping the Toyota Camry hybrid by 8 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway.
    I don’t know the date on the Consumer Report page, but it’s good to know they are fighting for the top spot…
