What the Critics Say

The EPA estimates 43 mpg for its city, highway, and combined cycles—and sure enough, we achieved exactly 43 mpg in our 75-mph highway fuel-economy test, 4 mpg better than a previous-gen Avalon hybrid managed. Our overall average of 41 mpg is equally impressive for such a large and spacious vehicle.” — Car and Driver
Really, it’s the Avalon Hybrid that’s likely to be the best choice for most buyers. It’s a smooth operator that doesn’t feel down on power despite the numbers.” — Autoblog
