Is the Toyota Avalon the modern Buick? If it is, we do not mind it whatsoever. The Avalon has become its duty as Toyota's flagship, or even if it does not have one scrap of sporty objective in its handling or its appearances, it's a really handsome sedan that's been improved in a creative means. It still stands out at smooth, silent comfort in a manner that Buick itself has pressed into the history.

To put it merely, the Avalon utilized to be an also-ran; currently it battles with the Impala for our attention. And also with solid competitors from the similarity the Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera, as well as Ford Taurus-- all revamped or significantly refreshed in the past 2 years-- there's plenty of option right here. The new Avalon looks interesting, and really feels more vibrant, and steers into a much more compelling direction with an aesthetically remarkable interior and also a full dose of high-tech safety and security devices.
A lot for the anonymous look of the present Camry; Toyota wisely pushed the Avalon in a new direction, styling-wise, and also reveals that, within bounds, a cars and truck can be sensible and also comfy without lugging such a non-stop conservative line on designing. Taking a step back, the exterior of the brand-new Avalon truly draws you in; and thinking about the history of this version, that's claiming a great deal. There's a whole lot to like in the stylish, streaming roofline, and also the way the beltline arcs, along with the unanticipated strike at the rear fenders. Nothing in the new Avalon states farewell to the status greater than the extensively modern instrument-panel format, as well as its flush, capacitive (touch-based) rush switches-- a function that cleans up the look, and also eliminates physical switches. Up close, cabin products are superb, with wonderful, matching grains as well as surfaces, and a complete organization over those in the Camry.
The way the 2014 Toyota Avalon drives is what will certainly maintain this model a standout for some time. V-6 versions, with a solid, smooth 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter, are still anticipated to make up most sales; however it's the numerous Avalon Crossbreed designs in the schedule that seem one of the most engaging, not only for their surprisingly responsive performance, however, for their level of refinement that could even deceive some typical Avalon shoppers. With a web of 200 horsepower, completely, from its lean Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder, teamed with nickel-metal-hydride batteries as well as 2 electric motors embeded the transaxle, the Avalon Hybrid can get to 60 mph in simply (conservatively) 8.2 secs. Take a look at the home window sticker label of the Hybrid, however-- an incredible 40 mpg city, 39 freeway (40 Incorporated)-- and you may be ready to deal with a little less power.
And the rather stunning surprise below is that you get almost the exact same driving experience with the Crossbreed. Both models are quicker as well as more receptive, while feeling much more composed and also refined compared with the outgoing model. We wouldn't call it flashy, yet it's supremely qualified and also manageable in such a way that the Avalon hasn't remained in the past.
The Avalon really feels extremely roomy, modern and lavish, with top-notch materials, thoughtful details and also comfy seats. Pole position might utilize a bit more side support, but they're encouraging for the back and also upholstered in outstanding, supple leather, with real stitching-- and also ventilated premium leather in Minimal models. The rears are amongst the best we've sampled in a larger car-- contoured well for grownups and also with reasonably long reduced pillows to give upper leg support. The brand-new Avalon obtains a 16-cubic-foot trunk, and also with a level flooring and also broad opening, you could fit a great deal of grocery store bags. Hybrid versions have a somewhat smaller 14-cubic-foot trunk, but it's a tiny sacrifice for that design's gains.
The Avalon offers a strong listing of safety features, consisting of different rear side-thorax air bags and also front knee bags, and crash-test rankings have been virtually perfect across the board. A Rear Cross Traffic Alert system, which uses sensors in the rear quarter panels to help find lorries as they approach from the side and behind the vehicle, is really effective for those who should support with limited views. And also for 2014, all designs feature a back-up video camera system while an Unseen area Monitor is currently optional equipment on the Avalon XLE Touring and Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring versions.
With last year's redesign, Toyota provided the Avalon a bigger focus, expanding its allure (ideally) to a somewhat younger (40 to 60 year old) group. So includes no longer are restricted to power devices and finer products; you could currently get some of the most advanced in-car interfaces, too.
