This car is a joy to drive. After owing it for three weeks, the MPG is at 35 but climbing. I like the eco mode feedback.

So much fun to drive!

I love this car! I can get over 50 mpg driving across town in traffic. The technology equipped in the car is fantastic. People cannot even tell that the car is running. I love how large the back seat of the car is. The leg room in the back will rival mid-size SUVs. The trunk is also spacious. If you are looking for a full size sedan that can haul a family of four, this thing is perfect!

One of the few cars I have owned that I loathe

Avalon Hybrid Limited: Let me count the numerous deficits of this very "limited" car I foolishly bought on the recommendations of Consumer Reports - never again!: 1. Dismal hybrid - even with very careful driving barely gets above 40 mpg on a trip and average is around 33 mpg. Far worse than other hybrids I have owned. 2. Interior is so 20th century - fuddy duddy, boring and tasteless - the synthetic wood is particularly appealing!!!! 3. Entertainment system is a poorly designed mishmash of buttons and dials from the 1950s. Nav system is hands down the most archaic and worst I have used in the past 5 years. 4. Design by Salvador Dali but without the charm 5. Driving dynamics and experience - as exciting as driving a refrigerator but less maneuverable 6. Ergonomics - clearly the designers do not understand the concept encompassed by this word. 7. Big car with little usable space 8. And some really special touches that only Toyota can deliver: In the first week I owned it my "key" rolled under the seat. The only way to retrieve it was to break the plastic plate under the seat. The Toyota dealership sells seat sealer pads to prevent objects falling under the seat for this reason. Then there is the rear sunshade that fails to open - a defect on Avalons for the last 15 years. Mmmm rear window sunshade - must be a big market for these in Japan - a sort of parasol for cars! 9. Reliability - the regular non hybrid battery lasted less than 2 years and cost $340 to replace at the dealer - a real foot stomping bargain. Summary: If a Tesla 3 were to have a desirability factor of 100, this car has a desirability factor of 0. DON'T BUY ONE.

2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Overview

The 2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is the more fuel-efficient version of the full-size Avalon sedan. This year it has been redesigned along with the regular Avalon. The exterior has been dramatically updated with a hyper aggressive front-end that puts all other “wide-mouth” cars to shame. At the back, the taillights are stretched out to create a long, narrow singular strip. Available adaptive variable suspension keeps the vehicle comfortable over long trips on the road.

Three trims are available: XLE, XSE, and Limited.

Powering the Avalon Hybrid is a combined 215-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor mated to a continuously variable transmission. Fuel economy of XLE is an EPA-estimated rating of 43/44 mpg city/highway. It improves slightly to a 43/43 mpg rating for the XSE and Limited trims.
