WES RAYNAL: Let’s see. We grabby and inconsistent brakes, acceleration, a Polaris-like transmission and a sticker price. Yup, a Toyota hybrid alright.

the Prius and other cars Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy this 2013 Toyota Hybrid Limited’s drivability is not good. And it’s tempting to say — they all do that,” but not true. For instance, the hybrid that Volkswagen has in the Jetta is a better powertrain than Toyota is building.

It’s a shame, really, the Avalon isn’t a bad car in and of itself. arguably the best passenger car makes. It’s a good-looking in my opinion. There’s tons of inside, fit and finish and materials are the seats are comfortable, the controls are intuitive and it’s ultra on the road.

Most of that true for the hybrid as well, from a drivability standpoint. The are just bad — I don’t how else to put it. The lightest pedal brings things to a screeching That’s a problem and making it is that it’s not consistent. they seem to work and sometimes not.

The car is also slow. Mash the gas and the engine gets louder a snowmobile’s, but not much else Once up to speed it’s but getting there’s a chore. You got to be with this.

I like Avalons. They’re quiet, comfortable and big inside; however, take a pass on the hybrid

ASSOCIATE EDITOR JAKE I didn’t drive the Avalon Limited too much, so I can’t a whole lot on the drivability, beside the hybrid complaints like brakes, it not being quick and strange sounds coming the powertrain. However, I will say I do like the new exterior.

The front end looks like a version of the Camry. I like the lower grille that you fill with mesh if you to go for a boy-racer look. And the overall of the front end looks sort of Or maybe I should say “substantial.”

The view is also miles than the outgoing car, was among the blandest vehicles in memory. I like the tapering the redone taillights and the dual Toyota did a good job with one of its boring entries. They jumped as far as Hyundai, but the entire is looking better by the day.

The interior is on the plain side, but the screen has two knobs on either which make volume and adjustment easy. A lot of cars are this a lot of different ways but the two-knob system is still of ergonomics. There’s a lot of room, and the seats feel like have been plucked a Lexus because they are comfortable.

I guess $44K is a price for this 2013 Avalon Hybrid Limited. The Malibu Hybrid is a bit less and the new Honda Accord Hybrid is out too, as far as competitors go. But this is a Toyota sedan.
