2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Overview
- Estimated 40/39 mpg city/highway
- Good crash test ratings
- Full-size sedan with lots of standard equipment and comfortable seating
The 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid enters its third year of existence, still holding a comfortable lead over other full-size sedans in the race for the best fuel economy.
There are not a lot of visual clues to distinguish the Hybrid from the regular Avalon. It has unique 17- and 18-inch wheels and some blue tinting on the Toyota badges at the front and rear, but otherwise is styled identically. Heated side mirrors, LED taillights, and dual exhaust tips are standard. The exterior can be further customized by adding optional equipment, including a power moonroof, LED daytime running lights, HID headlights, and automatic windshield wipers than can detect rain.
Under the hood, the Avalon combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine running on the Atkinson cycle with an electric motor. They produce a combined 200-horsepower. There are three driving modes: Eco, Sport, and EV which keeps the car on battery power alone for as long as possible. Fuel economy ratings are sky high for a car of this size, 40/39 mpg city/highway.
Avalon models have always offered large cabins with comfortable seating and lots of legroom for both front and rear passengers. It also comes with a very complete list of standard features, including leather upholstery, heated front seats, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start. A navigation system is optional, as is Toyota’s Entune infotainment system which is powered by your smart phone and comes with its own apps.
The 2015 Avalon Hybrid performed well on government crash tests, earning a full five-star overall rating from the NHTSA. 10 airbags are standard, along with a rearview camera in addition to the federally mandated antilock brakes and electronic stability control. Safety technology is also available as a part of options packages, including a forward pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, and a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alerts.
