2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I started the Hybrid sedan research 3 months ago.
I decided on the Lexus es300h - I put the deposit and ordered the car with the features I wanted.
During the 3 week wait for the Lexus I saw the Avalon Hybrid online.
During lunch I decided to go take a look, but didn't have time for a test drive.
The exterior comparison was about the same for me;
almost the same side profile look.
The front & back of the car is different, but I liked both the same.
The Interior was the difference maker.
The Avalon just felt better and the controls made more sense.
Plus the fact with the Limited Avalon model compared to the Lexus had more features than the Lexus and was $4500 cheaper!
Plush and comfort of the Leather seats.
Controls are very accessible and easy to use.
Most of all, the smooth ride & quite cabin - it is more quite than the Lexus es300h hands down!
The options for the touch screen are 'beep' on or turn it off.
You can't turn the beep sound down or change the sound, that would be nice.
