All-new 2013 Toyota Avalon to Offer Hybrid Powertrain
Full-size sedan Expected to Achieve 40 mpg in Combined Driving
The country’s top seller of hybrids is adding another green arrow to its quiver: the 2013 Toyota Avalon. Along with a full-on redesign, Toyota’s full-size near-luxury sedan will offer a Hybrid Synergy Drive projected to deliver EPA marks of 40 mpg city/39 mpg highway/40 mpg combined. Of course, that’s in addition to a standard V6 that will deliver 31 mpg highway and 0-60 times of under 7 seconds.
The party line from Toyota: “The new Avalon features a stunning design, improved dynamic performance, a greater degree of refinement, and a highly spacious, comfortable interior experience with an abundance of outstanding convenience technologies.”
