Benefits of Driving a 2013 Toyota Avalon Sedan

The Avalon is the most expensive sedan sold by Toyota, starting at just under $31,000. With plenty of interior space and a nice, powerful V6 engine in base trim, the Avalon represents a pretty good value for buyers looking at entry level luxury cars. The interior is nicely put together and Toyota has a nearly unmatched reputation for reliability and build quality.

What's new for 2013?

The Avalon has been given a fresh new redesign for 2013. With a completely different interior and exterior than the outgoing model, the 2013 Avalon looks modern and sharp with just a hint of sportiness. The even bigger news for 2013 is the availability of a hybrid drivetrain for the Avalon, making it extremely fuel efficient for a car with such a heavy focus on luxury. Toyota borrows technology from the Prius to give the big Avalon some eyebrow raising fuel efficiency numbers, even managing to rate 40 mpg on the highway.

Model Review

The Avalon comes equipped with one of two drivetrains. The standard drivetrain features a 268 hp 3.5L V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Featuring three modes, normal, eco and sport, the V6 equipped Avalon has plenty of passing power while still returning up to 31mpg on the highway. The optional drivetrain is a hybrid-electric system using a 2.5L 4-cylinder and an electric motor for a total of 200 hp. With this drivetrain, the Avalon is able to achieve 40 mpg on the highway and 39 mpg in the city, making it extremely fuel efficient for a Luxury automobile.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
