There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

The Toyota Avalon and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

The Toyota Avalon is about the same width as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Avalon takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.
