The hybrid makes a lot of sense now

Its name might have been inspired by a mystical paradise island but as we’ve learned countless times, premium claims come with a price in the car world.

Sales for the 2019 Avalon commence next month and Toyota has set the price tag for the TNGA-underpinned sedan.

The entry-level Avalon is the $35,500 XLE V6 model (301 hp, 267 lb-ft), while the hybrid 2019 Avalon (215 hp, 163 lb-ft) opens the order book at $36,500. Bear in mind that these prices to not include the $895 processing and handling fee.

Further up the hierarchy, the Avalon XSE V6 starts at $38,000, with its hybrid iteration wearing a $39,000 sticker. The Avalon Limited will require at least $41,000 with the V6 or $42,800 with the hybrid powertrain. The range-topper is the Avalon Touring, which doesn’t get a hybrid soul, but instead retains the V6 and starts at $42,200.
