2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I have trouble getting the driver seat to move up as high as I would like in the back, so getting in & out is somewhat more difficult than I would prefer. The seat is low, so it's a big drop on entry and a bit more difficult getting out. The touch controls are VERY sensitive, so you can easily hit one accidentally as you are trying to control something else. Overall, however, these are minor. The car is a gem with GREAT mileage!

2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

It’s wonderful to have a hybrid full-size sedan. While the gas mileage is not as good as a hybrid Camry or a Prius, it is still spectacular for a car of this size. Also, having test driven a hybrid Camry, I can say the performance of the Avalon is much better. As far as looks, it is essentially the same car as the Lexus ES with a different hood ornament. All in all very satisfied.

2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Overall OK, but noisy and the Nav/Radio function do not respond. Even turning it on takes time. Mileage is good, but near what they advertise. Side visibility is poor. Nav location is not ideal. Visibility is poor.

Review

don't meaner at 38mph to 44mph as there is an unfixable steering wheel vibration on my car and all 2014-2018 Avalon Hybrids tested. Toyota claims it is in acceptable tolerance. Also fuel mph is sharply decreased in this range as well. At 45mph vibration goes away and mph greatly increases until about 60mph. I have gotten average 53.4mpg on Airport trips of 80-90 miles if i did not exceed 60. At speed limit of 70 mpg drops to 42.8mpg. Exceeding the speed limit and driving with a slightly heavier foot nets about 38 mpg avg still impressive for a car this size. I max out with 623 miles per tank and typically refill at 580 to 590 miles. With less than 16 gallons I easily make 3 airport trips plus before needing fuel with car fully loaded and a smooth, quiet, comfortable ride for all passengers. It is not a sports car but has ample acceleration when pressed and great fuel economy on trips. Kind of like my old 8cyl 327cid 1969 Camaro with a smooth Luxury car ride with a spacious rear seat and plenty of leg room and 4wide opening doors. This car does it all at $32,800 but with tax, title, and out the door comes in at just over $40k. I would highly recommend it to anyone that frequently makes road trips. A bonus - pull into a parking lot or traffic below 26mph and press EVO mode and for a few minutes or 2miles enjoy all electric mode. I only wish EVO mode would last 50 miles and the car would be perfect. This car is worth every dime I PAID for it. The ride is far better and quieter than the Camry an also excellent car.

Review

Have only owned the car for 4 weeks, however so far I love the comfort and the economy. I have owned an Avalon for 17 years and so far it it looks like this one will be as reliable and a whole lot more ecconomical and with more comfort features.
