While I may be the local purveyor of all things that go fast here at TopSpeed.com, I do enjoy the quiet and luxury that comes with large cars like the Toyota Avalon. I also enjoy the advancements made in fuel economy over the last few years and get enjoyment in seeing just how high I can push that mpg gauge. Earlier this year, I was given the keys to the Avalon Hybrid for a week and I thoroughly enjoyed the machine. I felt it was quiet, luxurious and fuel economy was excellent; even if it was a little slow and I didn’t like the CVT. Cut forward a few weeks, and there is a new Toyota Avalon in my driveway, but this one is fitted with the family V-6.
