In this video I’ll go over every feature in the 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. You will learn just about everything you need to know in order to be very comfortable operating this amazing vehicle from Toyota. I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions…I’ll be glad to help!
The heart of the 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is the same powertrain found in the Camry Hybrid: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine paired with an electric motor. It pumps out a respectable 200 horsepower combined. More importantly, it allows this big sedan to earn an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 40 mpg. Factor in the 17-gallon gas tank and you’re looking at a theoretical range of nearly 700 miles between fill-ups.
The Avalon Hybrid also happens to be pretty much in a class by itself, as no non-premium brand automakers currently offer full hybrid systems in their large sedans. A mild-hybrid version of the 2014 Buick LaCrosse is available, but its fuel economy and overall driving demeanor can’t match the Avalon’s. If you don’t need quite as much room, you might consider a midsize alternative, such as the Ford Fusion Hybrid (or its cousin, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid), the Honda Accord Hybrid or Toyota’s Camry Hybrid.
