Toyota took the current Avalon's style in a new direction, far from the ubiquitous Camry as well as the firm's even more extravagant but solemn Lexus layouts. Rather, it has a look all its own, with a swoopy roofline, flared-out back fenders, and an almost hatchback seek to the back glass that all give it existence where there was none to be had in previous generations.
Inside is one more shock, a thoroughly contemporary instrument-panel format, as well as its flush, capacitive (touch-based) rush switches-- an attribute that cleans up the appearance, and also gets rid of physical buttons. Cabin materials are excellent, with nice, matching grains and also surface areas, as well as a full organization over those in the smaller sized Camry.
The 2015 Avalon is used with two different powertrains. V-6 versions, with a strong, smooth 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter, are still anticipated making up most sales; but it's the Avalon Crossbreed that appears one of the most compelling, not just for its remarkably responsive performance, however, for a level of refinement that may even trick some conventional Avalon shoppers. With a net of 200 horsepower from its lean Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder, teamed with nickel-metal-hydride batteries and also two electric motors embeded the transaxle, the Avalon Crossbreed can get to 60 miles per hour in simply (conservatively) 8.2 seconds. Have a look at the window sticker label of the Crossbreed, though-- an extraordinary 40 mpg city, 39 highway (40 Integrated)-- and also you may be ready to manage a little less power.
The surprise is that you get virtually the exact same driving experience with the Crossbreed. Both powertrains are quicker as well as much more responsive compared to the outward bound design's only V-6, as well as this most recent Avalon really feels much more composed as well as improved. We would not call it stylish, yet it's supremely capable and also controllable in a way that the Avalon hasn't already been in the past. There's power hen you need it, and a good ride at all times.
The Avalon feels very roomy, modern and also glamorous, with first-class materials, thoughtful information and comfy seats. The front seats could utilize a little a lot more lateral support, yet they're supportive for the back as well as upholstered in remarkable, supple natural leather, with actual sewing-- and aerated premium natural leather in Restricted models. The rear seats are amongst the best we've tasted in a bigger car-- contoured well for grownups and also with reasonably long reduced cushions to give thigh assistance. The Avalon obtains a 16-cubic-foot trunk, as well as with a flat floor and broad opening, you can fit a great deal of grocery bags. Hybrid models have a somewhat smaller 14-cubic-foot trunk, but the lost room is a tiny sacrifice for the performance gains.
The Avalon supplies a solid checklist of safety attributes, including different rear side-thorax airbags and front knee bags, and crash-test scores have actually been virtually perfect across the board. A Rear Cross Traffic Alert system, which utilizes sensing units in the rear quarter panels to assist detect automobiles as they approach from the side and behind the lorry, is extremely reliable for those who have to back up with restricted sights. All designs include a backup cam system, while a Dead Spot Monitor is now standard on the Avalon XLE Touring and Avalon Crossbreed XLE Touring designs as of 2015.
All Avalons come well-appointed with a lot of convenience attributes, while the top-of-the-line Limited models are optioned up like a Lexus. Leading Restricted designs cost around $40k however are luxury automobiles by the equipment checklist, with all the safety and security systems, perforated leather upholstery, heated-and-ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, three-zone automatic environment control, a rear sunshade, 785-watt JBL Audio, HID headlamps, as well as LED daytime running lights. Include the Tech Bundle, with Flexible Cruise Control, a Pre-Collision System, as well as Automatic High Beams.
As stated above, the Crossbreed version is the fuel-economy leader of the schedule. The V-6 is adept itself, returning 21 mpg in city driving and also 31 on the highway. Which one is right for you will certainly rely on the quantity as well as sort of driving you do, obviously, yet the Crossbreed isn't really much of an extra fee, as well as we assume you can deal with its small power very conveniently.
Other adjustments for 2015 include the addition of a Touring Sport Version-- basically an appearance package with a black inside and blue interior, 18-inch wheels, HID headlights-- weakened chrome trim for the interior, and also paddle shifters and the different drive modes (Sporting activity, Typical, Eco) are currently typical on all V-6 versions.
