Is the Toyota Avalon the contemporary Buick? If it is, we do not mind it at all. The Avalon has actually become its duty as Toyota's front runner, or even if it does not have one smidgen of sporty objective in its handling or its looks, it's an extremely handsome sedan that's been reshaped in a creative means. It still excels at smooth, silent comfort in a way that Buick itself has pressed into the history.

To put it simply, the Avalon made use of to be an also-ran; currently it battles with the Impala for our attention. As well as with strong competition from the likes of the Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera, and also Ford Taurus-- all upgraded or considerably freshened in the past 2 years-- there's a lot of choice here. The new Avalon looks fascinating, and really feels a lot more vibrant, and guides right into a much more compelling direction with an aesthetically significant inside and a complete dose of sophisticated safety devices.
A lot for the anonymous appearance of the present Camry; Toyota wisely pressed the Avalon in a brand-new instructions, styling-wise, and also reveals that, within bounds, a vehicle can be functional and also comfy without pulling such a non-stop conservative line on designing. Taking a go back, the exterior of the brand-new Avalon actually lures you in; and taking into consideration the background of this model, that's saying a lot. There's a great deal to like in the graceful, streaming roofline, as well as the way the beltline arcs, as well as the unanticipated punch at the back fenders. Nothing in the brand-new Avalon claims farewell to the status more than the completely modern instrument-panel design, and also its flush, capacitive (touch-based) rush buttons-- a function that cleans up the look, and also gets rid of physical switches. Up close, cabin materials are outstanding, with good, matching grains and surfaces, and a complete organization over those in the Camry.
The method the 2014 Toyota Avalon drives is exactly what will maintain this model a standout for time. V-6 designs, with a strong, smooth 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter, are still anticipated making up most sales; yet it's the multiple Avalon Hybrid versions in the lineup that seem one of the most engaging, not only for their surprisingly responsive efficiency, however, for their degree of improvement that might even mislead some standard Avalon consumers. With a web of 200 horsepower, altogether, from its lean Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder, teamed with nickel-metal-hydride batteries as well as 2 motors tucked in the transaxle, the Avalon Hybrid can get to 60 miles per hour in just (conservatively) 8.2 seconds. Have a look at the home window sticker label of the Crossbreed, though-- an extraordinary 40 mpg city, 39 highway (40 Combined)-- as well as you may be willing to take care of a little less power.
And also the rather shocking surprise below is that you get virtually the very same driving experience with the Hybrid. Both models are quicker and a lot more receptive, while really feeling far more made up and also refined as compared to the outbound model. We would not call it sporty, yet it's very capable as well as manageable in a manner that the Avalon hasn't remained in the past.
The Avalon feels exceptionally roomy, contemporary and also lavish, with excellent materials, thoughtful details and also comfy seats. Front seats might utilize a little bit a lot more side support, however they're supportive for the back and upholstered in impressive, supple natural leather, with actual sewing-- as well as ventilated premium natural leather in Limited designs. The rear seats are among the very best we've tasted in a bigger sedan-- contoured well for adults and also with fairly long reduced paddings to offer upper leg support. The brand-new Avalon obtains a 16-cubic-foot trunk, and also with a level floor and also wide opening, you can fit a lot of grocery bags. Crossbreed designs have a somewhat smaller 14-cubic-foot trunk, yet it's a little sacrifice for that design's gains.
The Avalon offers a strong list of security features, including separate rear side-thorax air bags and also front knee bags, and crash-test rankings have actually been nearly ideal across the board. A Rear Cross Web traffic Alert system, which utilizes sensors in the rear quarter panels to assist spot automobiles as they come close to from the side and behind the car, is extremely effective for those who need to support with limited views. As well as for 2014, all versions have a backup camera system while an Unseen area Screen is currently optional tools on the Avalon XLE Touring and also Avalon Crossbreed XLE Touring versions.
