There no big difference between the base Avalon and Avalon Hybrid in terms of exterior design, both gas and hybrid-powered cars get great exterior features such as LED reflector headlights with daytime running lights. The XLE rolls on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels, XSE models get 18-inch dark-gray alloys and Limited models get 18-inch chrome alloy wheels.

2021 Avalon Hybrid Interior
This 2021 Toyota Avalon hybrid is five passengers sedan. It’s spacious inside, although the rear center seat is less than ideal for an adult but will do in a pinch. There are modern conveniences like dual-zone climate control and Qi-compatible wireless charging on the upper trims, comfortable seating with heating and even ventilation as you move up through the trims, and a generally user-friendly infotainment setup. Although a far cry from premium sedans in much higher price brackets, Toyota has made some effort to ensure the Avalon looks good, adding genuine wood trim to the top-spec models and packing the cockpit with important safety tech.
Engine Options & Performance
This 2021 Avalon Hybrid lineup shares the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired to an electric hybrid setup featuring dual electric motors. The combined output for the hybrid is 215 horsepower and 312 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the front wheels by default. Whereas the non-hybrid variants of the Avalon manage the 0-60 mph sprint in just over six seconds according to independent trials, the hybrid models take a much more leisurely approach, getting to 60 mph in just under eight seconds. While not particularly motivated to get up to speed, the 2021 Avalon hybrid manages just fine for those who want to merge onto the highway without too much fanfare.
