Toyota has introduced its 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid with a lower price than its ‘08 counterpart. The ’09 version adds more standard equipment and a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $30,660. That’s down $1,340 from the 2008 model.

“When we introduced the Camry Hybrid we set a new benchmark for alternative power vehicles by enhancing one of North America’s most popular passenger cars with the clean, efficient power of Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive,” noted Tony Wearing, managing director of TCI. “For the 2009 model year, we build on Camry Hybrid’s success by adding even more standard features, exciting new packages and an attractive starting MSRP.”

The Camry Hybrid is available now in one fully equipped trim level. New for the 2009 model year, all Camry Hybrids are fitted with a power moonroof, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, and rear seat reading lamps as standard equipment. Other features include: a top of the line JBL Synthesis Audio System, featuring AM/FM stereo/in-dash 6-disc CD changer/MP3/WMA player plus audio auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth capability, eight speakers and steering wheel-mounted audio system controls; and dual-zone climate control system with a cabin air filter.
