The Toyota Avalon is a world-class sedan with an elegant and refined design. One of the most upscale cars in the class, the redesigned Toyota Avalon has the reviewers raving.
Avalon’s exterior lighting complements the design lines. The industry-first Quadrabeam™ headlight cluster utilizes a sleek and compact double-eye PES headlight design with two square glass condenser lenses that have been adopted for the low beams and offer outstanding lighting performance. A stronger, more expressive front-fascia design with larger grille opening creates an aggressive appearance.
The Avalon’s interior elaborates on the exterior’s elegant, refined theme to create a premium interior experience that combines high technology and craftsmanship with an artistic level of sculpted surfaces. This panel is covered in supple, hand-stitched premium soft-touch material with the seam adding some creative flair as it goes across the dash panel.
The driver is engaged by an Optitron-type combination meter, which produces a sharp, high quality display and 3.5-inch Thin-film Transistor (TFT) color multi-information display. Furthermore, the Avalon’s interior surfaces are finished in premium materials such as soft-touch materials for the dash panel, unique smoke chrome trim surrounding the center panel, and high-quality glossy panel trim around the shifter. All of this attention to detail to touch surfaces and subtle enhancements to texture and visual appeal are aimed at elevating the overall interior experience for driver and passengers.
The Avalon’s seats are available as 10-way power adjustable for the driver’s seat, and 8-way adjustment for the front passenger seat. The driver’s seat incorporates a seat-cushion length extender; a four-way lumbar support is built into the driver’s seat and a two-way lumbar support for the passenger. An electric seat heater and seat ventilation system have been adopted to help enhance driver and passenger seat comfort.
The Avalon utilizes a 3.5-litre, six-cylinder V-6 engine that features Dual VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence) to help offer superior power and efficiency by optimizing the intake and exhaust valve timings to increase engine performance across the entire rev range. This robust V6 produces 273 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 35.3 kg.m of torque at 4,700 rpm, and provides the new Avalon with competitive acceleration.
The V6-powered Avalon features an automatic transmission that has been optimized for improved fuel economy and performance. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters help activate fast & responsive shifts while keeping both hands on the wheel. The V6-powered Avalon offers three drive modes: Eco, Normal and Sport.
