No. 12: Toyota Avalon Hybrid

MSRP: $33,300 (Details Below)

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid ranks in the middle of the large car class. Reviewers agree the upscale interior is best-in-class. It even leads the class in fuel economy at 40 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway. Expect a smooth ride, with responsive steering and capable brakes. Once the sedan gets up to speed, engine noise can be an issue, say critics. The Avalon Hybrid, priced at $37,300, includes a good package of driver assistance safety features, often optional on other vehicles. Trunk space is limited at 14 cubic feet due to the battery pack.
