2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid - First Drive, 10/2012
A premium that pays off quickly
With a price that's as little as $1,750 more than an equivalent V-6 version of the Avalon, the Hybrid is not just the green choice, but the one that makes the most long-term fiscal sense. Especially if you do most of your driving in the city, you could save more than $1,000 on your fuel budget, easily, in a single year.
In other words, this is the kind of green choice that makes sense even to your less Earth-conscious friends.
