Mazda 6 vs Toyota Camry
There’s no reason to think the Hybrid will not last as long as a regular petrol vehicle.
Toyota has been making hybrids for many, many years and they have never shown any sign of being less durable or reliable then the company’s petrol models. The batteries are said to last the lifetime of the vehicle, so there’s reason to be concerned about that either. The thing with the hybrid is the higher purchase price. That’s offset by the lower fuel consumption, so the longer you keep the vehicles the greater the chance to recoup the extra initial cost.
The other thing to consider is that hybrids work at their best in stop-start city traffic, they are not so good out on country roads where the petrol engine comes into play more of the time.
What car should I buy for $70,000?
You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.
Why does the 2018 Camry come with a space-saver spare tyre?
Cost, weight, and space saving are all advantages with a space-saver. I guess the other consideration is just how many times do you need to call on the spare. For most people the spare goes along for the road and is rarely used.
Best Camry variant for long drives?
It depends on how much of your driving is local and how much is open road/highway. It also depends on what it is you want, i.e., performance or fuel economy, and how much you’re willing to pay. The hybrid has good performance around town thanks to its electric motor, and the economy is also good, but it’s not so good on the open road. The four is a quite a good blend of performance and economy around town and holds its own on the highway, while the six is a little thirsty in town and goes like the clappers out of town. The four would be my choice as the best all-rounder.
