All-new last year, the Toyota Avalon Hybrid promises full-size comfort with efficiency to rival the stingiest economy cars. You also get confident handling and engaging style that that far surpass the previous generation.

What's New for 2014

All models get navigation and Toyota’s Entune app suite as standard equipment.

Choosing Your Toyota Avalon Hybrid

The Avalon Hybrid’s claim to fame is, of course, its stunning efficiency for its class: 40 mpg in combined city and highway driving. No other large sedan comes close. The credit goes to its gas-electric engine setup: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor that together produce 200 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) does the shifting.

As with most hybrids, the Avalon Hybrid starts out with a higher level of equipment than the regular gas model. Each trim level is thoroughly equipped, so individual options are few. Once you decide that hybrid power is for you, configuring the Avalon is a fairly simple choice between three trim levels:

XLE Premium

Toyota isn't joking when it refers to its base Avalon Hybrid as "Premium" – standard equipment includes leather seating with power and heat in front, a sunroof, navigation, a rearview camera, keyless access and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio, and an eight-speaker sound system with integrated smartphone apps.

An extra $1,800 adds features like foglights, a driver memory package, and an optional blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

The $4,650 jump from XLE Touring to Limited carries upgraded leather seats with front ventilation and heat in back, xenon headlamps, LED running lights, rain-sensing wipers, tri-zone climate control, a rear power sunshade and an 11-speaker JBL sound system.

CarsDirect Tip

Whichever Avalon Hybrid you choose, you'll be able to travel up to 680 miles on a single tank. We think the XLE Premium strikes an exceptional balance between value and luxury. For luxury car buyers, though, the top-of-the-range Limited is a bargain-priced Lexus.
