Toyota Avalon Features –
- Third-row seating
- Power rear glass
- Sliding rear cargo deck
- Smart Key System with Push Button Start
- 270-hp V6 engine
If you’re willing, the Avalon is able. With a standard 4.0-liter V6 engine pumping out 270 horsepower and available 4-Wheel Drive with Active Traction Control, it’s ready to handle almost any terrain you throw at it.
You could say it’s durable, but that doesn’t do it justice. The Avalon is one of the last SUVs to be built with body-on-frame construction, which is just one of the reasons why 90% of Avalons sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today.
What are critics saying about the Toyota Avalon?
The vast, airy cabin affords more than enough room for passengers front and rear. There’s also Lexus-like wood and soft-touch plastic trim, while the supremely comfortable seats are perfect for long-distance cruising. Noise from the road, wind and tires is practically nonexistent. Luxurious features, including ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, tri-zone automatic climate control and a power rear sunshade are all available. Read More >>
Car and Driver –
The Avalon’s sculpted and swanky styling, luxuriously modern interior, and surprising agility give even pricier rivals a run for their money. A 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic are smooth and responsive. An efficient hybrid version is also offered, pairing a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor and sending 200 hp through a CVT. For long-distance cruising in style and comfort, the Avalon is hard to beat—and its dashing looks will charm more than just the AARP set. Read More >>
Motor Trend –
V-6-powered 2015 Toyota Avalons provide excellent acceleration thanks to the engine offering plenty of torque from low revs, making it easy to pass and merge at highway speeds. While not as strong as the V-6, the hybrid powertrain also has plenty of power for daily driving and doesn’t fall flat on its face when accelerating; however, it does get buzzy at higher speeds. Handling is decent for a large sedan, remaining stable on the road. The Avalon continues to excel as a long-distance cruiser with a comfortable ride despite its stiffer suspension setup. Read More >>
