I caught up with my Camry driving friend today.
The car's lifetime fuel economy is down to 6.1 l/100km (about 38.6 MPG), not too bad for mostly (non-hypermiling) urban commuting.
Her 2012 model (with the old 2.4 litre engine) has a combined rating of 6.0 l/100km.

The 2013 Camry with the current model 2.5 litre engine has a much better combined rating of 5.2 l/100km (about 45 MPG).

To put that in perspective, the 2013 non-hybrid Camry with the 2.5 litre engine is rated at 7.8 l/100km combined (about 30 MPG).

Note: These are the Australian (usually optimistic) figures, but they're OK for comparing models.
