Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid OVERVIEW

The Avalon—Toyota’s luxury sedan—debuted in 1995 and rode on a stretched Camry platform. Throughout its life, the Avalon underwent many changes, some good and some bad. After a third generation that lasted seven years, Toyota finally updated the Avalon and even added in a hybrid variant for 2013.

The 2013 model year is the first time that Toyota has offered up a hybrid variant for its range-topping Avalon. This new model comes has three available trim levels—XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited—and all four come fitted with the same 2.5-liter hybrid system that produces a total of 200 horsepower and hooks up to a continuously variable transmission.

With this drivetrain, the Avalon Hybrid sprints to 60 mph in just 7.7 seconds, and returns an EPA-estimated 40 mpg city and 39 mph highway. It rides a little more stiffly than the typical luxury car, though, something to consider if you take long trips.

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid’s all-new skin is a bit of a mixed bag. Up front, you have an almost wedge-like fascia that gives it a near-sporty look; an elegant profile and executive-looking backside, however, give it a touch of class. Add in the wraparound taillights and the standard 17-inch silver wheels, and you have a package that can easily fit in with anyone’s preferences.

Inside the cabin, you get a instant feeling of elegance, as you’re greeted by heated leather seats, a clean layout and a refreshing lack of hard plastics. All of the buttons seem to be well within the driver’s reach, eliminating the need to reach across a sea of buttons and knobs to adjust the climate control. Additionally, the Avalon still offers up a rather impressive 14 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk—only two cubic feet less than the standard Avalon—despite the intrusion of hybrid electronics.
