TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Avalon

Toyota Avalon Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 The Avalon's EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway are the best of any V6-powered large sedan. The Azera's numbers aren't too far behind (20/29). The LaCrosse's are (17/27). In our suburban driving we roughly matched the city figure. On the highway, though, we measured about 27. A number of factors might explain the shortfall. With a 70 mph limit, we were cruising well above the maximum speed of the EPA test cycle. Also, every seat was occupied and the trunk was chock full of luggage. Desire better fuel economy? Well, for the first time the Avalon is also available with a hybrid powertrain, specifically the same 200-horsepower (combined) unit available in the Camry. With this engine, the EPA ratings are 40/39. But you'll give up the more effortless acceleration and sweeter sound of the 268-horsepower V6. While the 3.5-liter V6 has changed very little since its introduction in the 2006 Avalon, and lacks the latest technology such as direct injection, it feels plenty strong and is among the best-sounding V6s. At low speeds and in turns traction is the limiting factor. All-wheel-drive would help, but unlike in the Buick isn't an option. The transmission remains the same six-speed automatic Toyota has offered since 2007. It's smooth and responsive, especially in sport mode (offered with the XLE Touring and Limited). If you desire to call the shifts yourself anyway, this can be done via either paddles flanking the steering wheel or the lever. Econ mode makes top mpg easier to attain by dulling throttle responses and quickening upshifts. see full Toyota Avalon review

Excellent mileage the entire 8 years I have owned this car. Usually I get 22-24 in town and well over 32 on the highway sometimes up to 35 mpg if I keep at 65 when the RPM runs around 2000. see full Toyota Avalon review
