The hybrid model combines an inline 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor to produce net 215 horsepower. This engine pairs to a Continuously Variable Transmission.
The Toyota Avalon’s efficiency puts it ahead of its competitors as well. The hybrid gas/electric motor provides up to an EPA-estimated 43 city/44 highway/44 combined MPG.1 The gas-powered 3.5L V6 engine rates up to an EPA-estimated 22 city/32 highway/26 combined MPG.2
Toyota Avalon Passenger Space and Comfort
The Toyota Avalon’s passenger space is large for a sedan with all seating positions offering ample head- and legroom in plush, supportive seats. Even on long drives, adults will have the space to stretch out and relax. The Avalon comes standard with high-quality synthetic leather upholstery and upscale accents, although upgrades, including real wood trim and supple, genuine leather, can further enhance the interior’s appearance and comfort.
In the trunk, the Avalon can hold up to 16.09 cubic feet of cargo, such as shopping bags or luggage. The trunk has a wide, even opening that makes great use of the available space. There are numerous small bins and cubbies throughout the cabin for small-item storage.
Toyota Avalon Technology
While the Toyota Avalon’s performance and efficiency earn high marks, its technology is where the Avalon really shines. It comes with a 9-inch touch-screen infotainment system outfitted with Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa compatibility, five USB ports, and plenty of safety features. You can also add adaptive dampers for improved performance and premium JBL speakers. The infotainment system is intuitive and responsive, ensuring that you have easy access to information and media systems during your drive.
For safety, the Avalon includes the standard Toyota Safety Sense™ suite: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. In some other makes, you’d need an expensive upgrade to get this much safety tech. You can also add Rear Cross-Traffic Braking and a Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan for more visibility and protection.
