High-tech, Near Luxury and Great MPG: I was interested in purchasing a 2014 Avalon V6 because of its bolder de...

I was interested in purchasing a 2014 Avalon V6 because of its bolder design and thought the gas mileage was really good until I saw the specs for the hybrid model. After test driving both models, I was impressed with how refined the hybrid synergy drive was. It's no V6 but has decent acceleration for a large sedan. I ended up buying the Avalon Hybrid Limited with the tech package and so far I'm very pleased with it. I've driven about 700 miles and I'm averaging about 40 MPG on a 12 mile commute that is 50% city and 50% suburban (40 mph ). It's amazing how long the Avalon will cruise in EV at 40 mph on relatively flat stretches of road. I haven't had chance to do much highway driving with passengers and luggage. I read in other forums where Lexus ES 300h owners were getting 40+ mpg on the highway. Could I expect similar results?
