The 2017 Toyota Avalon is a full-sized sedan that offers more than the popular Camry, while hovering just below the Lexus models. It fills a void for buyers looking for a great car, with great luxury, but who just don’t want stretch the budget any further than they must.
The Avalon has a nice style – straight forward, but still distinctive. It has refined performance features, and comes with one of the best safety platforms in the business.
Additions for 2017 are safety features, previously seen only in higher trims, now being standard on all Avalon models.
The Avalon comes with a powerful 3.5L V6 engine generating 268hp and 248lbs of torque. While a hybrid engine is not in the cards right now, the 2017 Avalon still produces a very respectable fuel economy rating. Independent suspension increases handling and ride comfort, and two drive modes, Normal and Sport, automatically adjust to different road conditions. Steering is aided with Electronic Power Steering, and in Sport mode, steering and throttling get quicker.
Specially designed diffuser panels underneath the Avalon reduce turbulence and increase handling and damper wind noise.
Sleek and sculpted, the Avalon exterior is powerful and refined. It possesses a bold grille with Toyota’s signature pronounced black fin fascia. Chrome accents provide a nice contrast in the body to make the Avalon standout. Dual exhaust adds a sport dimension to the ear of the Avalon, and available LED head and taillights, and available black wheels increase the powerful look of the Avalon.
