The Avalon now duels with the similarly remarkable Chevy Impala for our focus. And also with solid competition from the similarity the Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera, and Ford Taurus, there's lots of selection right here.

With its 2013 redesign, the Avalon was offered a larger focus, with the intent of expanding its interest a somewhat younger (40- to 60-year-old) group. So includes no longer are limited to power devices and finer materials; you can currently obtain several of one of the most innovative in-car interfaces, as well.
2015 toyota Avalon Msrp
Toyota took the current Avalon's style in a brand-new instructions, away from the ubiquitous Camry or even the company's even more lavish but staid Lexus designs. Rather, it takes a look all its very own, with a swoopy roofline, flared-out back fenders, as well as an almost hatchback planning to the back glass that offer it existence where there was none to be had in previous generations.
Inside is one more shock, an extensively contemporary instrument-panel layout, and its flush, capacitive (touch-based) dash buttons-- a function that tidies up the appearance, and does away with physical buttons. Cabin products are outstanding, with wonderful, matching grains and surfaces, and a full league over those in the smaller Camry.
The 2015 Avalon is provided with two various powertrains. V-6 versions, with a strong, smooth 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter, are still anticipated making up most sales; yet it's the Avalon Hybrid that seems the most compelling, not just for its remarkably receptive efficiency, but also for a degree of improvement that could even mislead some standard Avalon shoppers. With a web of 200 horse power from its lean Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder, teamed with nickel-metal-hydride batteries and also two electric motors embeded the transaxle, the Avalon Hybrid can reach 60 miles per hour in simply (cautiously) 8.2 secs. Have a look at the home window sticker of the Hybrid, however-- a remarkable 40 mpg city, 39 freeway (40 Integrated)-- and you could be going to take care of a little less power.
The surprise is that you get almost the exact same driving experience with the Hybrid. Both powertrains are quicker and also a lot more responsive compared to the outbound model's only V-6, and this newest Avalon feels extra composed as well as improved. We wouldn't call it sporty, however it's very capable and also controlled in a manner that the Avalon hasn't already been in the past. There's power chicken you need it, as well as a nice flight constantly.
The Avalon really feels very roomy, contemporary as well as lavish, with first-class products, thoughtful details and also comfortable seats. The front seats can utilize a little extra side support, but they're helpful for the back as well as upholstered in excellent, supple leather, with genuine sewing-- as well as ventilated premium leather in Limited versions. The rear seats are among the very best we've tasted in a larger sedan-- contoured well for adults as well as with fairly long lower cushions to give thigh assistance. The Avalon gets a 16-cubic-foot trunk, and with a level floor as well as large opening, you can fit a lot of grocery store bags. Crossbreed models have a somewhat smaller 14-cubic-foot trunk, yet the shed area is a little sacrifice for the efficiency gains.
The Avalon uses a strong list of safety functions, consisting of different back side-thorax airbags and front knee bags, and crash-test ratings have actually been practically excellent across the board. A Back Cross Web traffic Alert system, which uses sensors in the rear quarter panels to assist spot cars as they come close to from the side and behind the vehicle, is very efficient for those who should support with limited sights. All designs feature a back-up cam system, while a Dead Spot Screen is currently basic on the Avalon XLE Touring and also Avalon Crossbreed XLE Touring models as of 2015.
All Avalons come fully equipped with plenty of convenience functions, while the state-of-the-art Restricted designs are optioned up like a Lexus. Leading Restricted designs cost around $40k yet are luxury vehicles by the devices checklist, with all the safety and security systems, perforated leather furniture, heated-and-ventilated pole positions, heated rear seats, three-zone automatic environment control, a rear sunshade, 785-watt JBL Sound, HID headlamps, and also LED daytime running lamps. Add the Tech Plan, with Flexible Cruise Ship Control, a Pre-Collision System, as well as Automatic High Beams.
As stated above, the Crossbreed model is the fuel-economy leader of the lineup. The V-6 is adept itself, returning 21 mpg in city driving and 31 on the highway. Which one is right for you will certainly depend upon the quantity and sort of driving you do, naturally, however the Crossbreed isn't really much of an extra fee, and also we assume you can deal with its modest power quite easily.
Various other adjustments for 2015 include the enhancement of a Touring Sporting activity Version-- primarily an appearance bundle with a black inside and blue inside, 18-inch wheels, HID fronts lights-- weakened chrome trim for the interior, and also paddle shifters and also the different drive settings (Sporting activity, Regular, Eco) are currently typical on all V-6 versions.
