2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Edmonton AB
If you want to get the most luxurious experience available in a Toyota vehicle, with all of the best features, power specifications and space, then you should look no further than the full-size Toyota Avalon, which is the brand’s flagship sedan. But what comes tied to a full-size flagship like the Avalon is a decrease in fuel efficiency. The impressively-powered engine and size of the vehicle have a negative impact on the vehicle’s economy, but there is one way to address the issue. And that is the 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid in Edmonton AB.
Specs & Features of the 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid
While installing a hybrid drivetrain does greatly improve the efficiency of the vehicle, the new technology still has to contend with the size of the vehicle without sacrificing too much power. The 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid achieves 5.8 l/100km through city streets and 6.0 l/100km on the highway, which is definitely better than the 11.4/7.6 l/100km that the standard Avalon operates on. But what about power?
If you’d be willing to sacrifice a bit of that impressive fuel economy you can opt for a 3.5L V6 engine that generates 268 horsepower alongside 248 pound-feet of torque. But if you want the best economy possible, then your Avalon Hybrid will be powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine, which is still capable of delivering 200 horsepower depending on which motor is active.
As with all Toyota vehicles, the Avalon Hybrid also delivers the best in safety features, and – considering it is a version of the brand’s flagship sedan – it also packs a multitude of other great features, like an 8- or 9-speaker audio system and the Smart Key System.
