Avalon Hybrid XLE Plus

Inside, you’ll find such luxuries like the power moonroof, push button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual zone automatic climate control. To keep you warm during harsh winter months, the leather-trimmed seats are heated in the front, and the 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat makes it easy to find your exact driving position. The 7-inch touchscreen is equipped with Entune™ Audio Plus with Connected Navigation2, which includes exciting features like Bluetooth®3 wireless technology with audio streaming4, Siri® Eyes Free5, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio6 played through six speakers, and the backup camera7.
Across all trim levels of the 2016 Avalon Hybrid is the 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine with an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, which produces 200 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 40/39 MPG city/hwy8.
