A true driver's car inspired by racing—available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters provide for a more hands-on driving experience by letting you control when you shift and matching each rev for seamless downshifts.
Step on the gas and feel the rush of the 3.5-liter V6 powered by 268 hp and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. Even with all this power, the engine is still incredibly efficient with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway and Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) certification.
Avalon's Sport Mode increases throttle response and quickens the Electric Power Steering (EPS) for livelier handling when desired.
At night you'll truly shine with available LED (light-emitting diode) headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that switch on and off automatically.
A focus on brilliance: Quadrabeam headlights focus light from a single bulb into two individual lenses to help you see what's ahead. On Avalon Limited, High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and an available Automatic High Beam feature create a headlight signature unique to Avalon.
A complement to the already stylish exterior, the available 18-in. dark gray painted alloy wheels take Avalon Touring to the next level.
Your rear-seat passengers ride in comfort as well. The spacious available heated rear seats of Avalon offers plenty of leg room thanks to a near-flat rear floor.
Ambient lighting throughout the cabin of Avalon Limited lends a touch of warmth and elegance and also makes it easier to locate frequently used items like cup holders and door pulls when it's dark.
A luxurious ride for everyone: Avalon Limited is equipped with a power rear sunshade to help keep rear-seat passengers cool and comfortable when the sun is at full strength.
Avalon's available HD predictive traffic helps you avoid traffic jams before others even see them. Now you can get real-time traffic updates on accidents, traffic and construction—all displayed on the available onboard Integrated Navigation in the center console.
No charger? No problem. With Avalon's available wireless charging system, simply place your Qi-compatible smartphone on the nonslip surface in the integrated eBin™ and charge up wirelessly.
When you're within a few feet of your Avalon with the Smart Key fob in your pocket or purse, the interior lights will automatically turn on, the front doors and trunk can be opened with a touch of a door handle, and once you're inside, the engine can be started and stopped with the push of the start/stop button.
*Only the driver's door unlocks on the XLE.
Available Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) automatically adjusts vehicle speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you.
Available on Avalon Limited, the Auto High Beams (AHB) feature helps enhance visibility when driving at night. The system is designed to detect oncoming vehicles as far away as 2000 feet and, depending on the circumstances, automatically switches the high beams off, making it easier for other drivers on the road, and then switches them on when it clears.
Available Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDS w/SA) is designed to help you stay in your lane and help keep you safe from harm. Using a specialized camera, the system is designed to detect visible painted lane markings on the road and alert you if you start to drift out of your lane. An audible beeping sound and indicator light on the instrument panel will flash so that you can then take corrective action.
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps identify vehicles that you may not see when changing lanes or backing out of a parking space by illuminating a warning signal on the correct outside mirror.
Avalon's front seats are engineered to yield in a controlled manner in certain rear-end collisions, helping to reduce the risk of neck injuries.
With available Safety Connect®, emergency Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Locator and Automatic Collision Notification are available when you need them through Toyota's 24/7 call center.
