“Until recently, the market was dominated by the Lincoln Town Car, which accounted for roughly 80 percent of livery sedan sales. With that car discontinued, livery fleets are looking for alternatives, including Lincoln MKT, Cadillac XTS and Chrysler 300,” Toyota said in a statement. “The new Avalon, with its mix of styling, comfort, performance, and hybrid fuel economy can offer a compelling sedan to livery operators.”

The V6 version of the Toyota Avalon livery model starts with the XLE grade and is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine making 268-hp. Combined EPA-rated fuel economy comes in at 25 mpg (21 city/31 hwy) with a starting price tag of $31,360.

The 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid livery model is powered by a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder Atkinson system by Toyota and averages an EPA-rated 40-MPG combined (40 city/ 39 hwy). Prices start at $33,760.
