Corvette vs. Camry: Unexpected Fuel Efficiency Showdown

Can a roaring Corvette be more fuel-efficient than a practical Toyota Camry Hybrid? The folks at TFLclassics on YouTube put this surprising question to the test with a highway MPG showdown.

But before that, let’s take a look at the competitors starting with the 1995 C5 Corvette. This classic American muscle car boasts a powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine, producing 345 horsepower. While that may not seem like much compared to modern Corvettes, in 1999, it was a beast.

Under the hood of the Camry is a 2.5-liter inline-four connected to a hybrid system and an e-CVT, producing 208 horsepower. This is a test of MPG, and the Camry is expected to excel here.
