What Is the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid?
The 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is a five-seat full-size sedan that competes with the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, Lexus ES 300h and Buick LaCrosse. All 2017 Avalon Hybrid models are equipped with front-wheel drive. Available trim levels include XLE Plus, XLE Premium and Limited. There is also a 2017 Avalon with a conventional gasoline powertrain, covered separately.
What's New on the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid?
Toyota Safety Sense P is standard on the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. This previously optional suite of safety features includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and prevention, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights.
How Does the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Compare to Other Sedans?
The 2017 Avalon Hybrid distinguishes itself with a combination of efficiency and comfort, and the newly standard Toyota Safety Sense P suite is another welcome addition. While the conventional Avalon competes with models like the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Taurus, the 2017 Avalon Hybrid's pricing places it in the company of more conventional luxury brands - and many of those models offer more intuitive controls and upscale accommodations.
What Features in the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Are Most Important?
The 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that make a combined 200 horsepower; this hybrid setup is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. Significant standard features include leather upholstery, heated front seats, remote keyless entry, automatic air conditioning, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, heated side mirrors and 17-inch alloy wheels. As required on all new vehicles, the 2017 Avalon Hybrid comes equipped with an electronic stability system, antilock brakes and front airbags.
Significant available features include a navigation system, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power moonroof and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Should I Buy the 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid?
The 2017 Toyota Avalon Hybrid offers admirable efficiency - but it comes at a premium, so it will likely take years for the hybrid powertrain to pay for itself. While it offers many welcome features, its multimedia interface is often cumbersome. However, those who are looking for a large, comfortable sedan with strong mpg ratings will find a lot to like here.
