2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I looked at probably 15-20 different vehicles..but i liked the idea of not being held hostage to the price of oil and the fact that this car is a luxury vehicle and gets 40mpg city is just amazing. I bought the full tech limited package..Pretty much same car as Lexus ES Hybrid only around 3k less. To get Toyota Quality/Reliability coupled with 40/39mpg/Luxury trim options, high end tech is just a really deep value...I can't think of a better value in the space. Lincoln MKZ Or Ford may have simliar but how long will it last? How much will maint be? After owning a german car the last 13yrs which was great but had horrible electric/hvac issues such a breath of fresh air to drive a Toyota.
Gas Mileage, Technology, Vented Seats, LED lights
Not really any..Car is just pretty impressive..Most people are very unfamiliar with the new design and do not realize how nice these Avalons are..To add the hybrid and double up your gas mileage in the city for 3k is a long term 15k gain. The total cost of ownership with this hybrid version is really incredible
