At the back of the Avalon is a disappointing lux-sedan taillights drooping a little bit. Though the rear fender is intricately designed and the sheetmetal gracefully flows to a sculpted look. It is imperative to note that there are minimal differences on the exterior compared to the petrol engine car.

All Avalon’s which come integrated with a V6 are rated at 31 mpg on the highway and 21mpg in the city which are quite solid figures for a big sedan. For the hybrid version, expect an amazing rating of 29 mpg on the highway and 40 mpg in the city.

Similarly, the hybrid just like the petrol engine will be available with only 2WD integrated with a six speed automatic transmission. The car’s drivability is smooth and relatively fast but scores a thumbs down in manual transmission feedback.
