The fuel economy of a hybrid powertrain meets the luxury of the Avalon in the 2013 Avalon Hybrid. Options shown.
The Avalon’s top-to-bottom redesign isn’t just about looks. We also did some work under the hood.
When it goes on sale later this year, the all-new Avalon will be available with either a powerful V6 gasoline powertrain or with Toyota’s proven Hybrid Synergy Drive.
Toyota has been a leader in hybrid vehicle development for more than a decade, and it shows in the Avalon Hybrid. A full power-split hybrid system, coupled with reductions in the curb weight and improved aerodynamics, helps the car receive impressive fuel economy ratings. The hybrid model is EPA-rated 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, for a combined 40 mpg EPA rating.**
The Avalon Hybrid will be powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors that combine for a total of 200 horsepower.
It’s impressive, and that’s just under the hood. Just wait until you see the luxurious interior.
