Driving Impression

Avalon’s supple ride is accompanied by an admirable level of control. No hints remain of the floatiness that prevailed in early Avalons. Though the ride is firm, far removed from pillowy-soft, it’s rarely harsh.

Solid powertrains yield capable performance. Nothing about the gasoline V6 is overpowering, but it delivers plenty of passing power, while comparatively easy on fuel. All V6 versions include paddle shifters, and acceleration to 60 mph takes only 6.7 seconds. Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes can alter steering effort, throttle operation, and shifting feel.

As for quietness, the Avalon’s hushed ride compares favorably with that of any sedan, including far more costly models. Credit goes largely to use of acoustic glass in the windshield and side windows. Both versions are quiet while cruising, without observable engine sound. Only when accelerating hard can the Hybrid’s coarse engine sound be heard. Sport mode in the Hybrid reveals slight electric-motor whine.

Fuel economy in the regular Avalon is EPA-rated at 21/31 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. The Hybrid scores near the top of the gas-mileage scale, EPA-rated at 40/39 mpg City/Highway, or 40 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

Avalons used to be related to the Toyota Camry, but those days of equivalence are long gone. Today’s Avalon benefits from a contemporary, refreshing appearance.

Little, if any, trace of Camry styling can be seen, especially since the Camry’s recent redesign. Avalons boast gracefully shaped sheetmetal, even if overall presence isn’t as stirring as some European-brand competitors.

Curiously, the wide, deep front end looks overly aggressive for a sedan that aims toward family motoring. Vertically oriented daytime running lights enhance that effect, looking a bit out of place.

Interior Overview

“”

Simple and straightforward, the Avalon cabin isn’t as enticing as its exterior, lacking the posh details of European luxury models. Price aside, though, the Avalon ranks among the quietest, most comfortable sedans to be found.

It’s also one of the few that offers space for five adults, along with a full load of luggage. Avalons offer 16 cubic feet of trunk space, but Hybrid trunks are smaller by 2 cubic feet.

Though comfortable, front seats lack the level of lateral support that some drivers prefer. Still, they’re wide and flat, easy to get in an out, and seem solidly built. Soft leather boasts commendable stitching.

Rear seats are suitably contoured. Three average-size adults can occupy the back bench without troublesome squeezing. Slight head-ducking is needed to enter, due to the low roofline. But once inside, expect plenty of clearance for heads and legs.

Interior fittings are carefully installed, down to the small details. Even the graining of the leather upholstery seems to match neatly.

A two-tone treatment helps separate the amply-sized dashboard. Climate controls are operated via an attractive screen, but touch-sensitive controls have done away with the tactile feel of traditional buttons and knobs. Also unfortunately, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities are absent.

Summary

The Toyota Avalon is safe and comfortable, a premium model that’s roomy and easy to with. On the road, the Avalon is smooth yet controlled and quite quiet. The Limited trim is luxurious.
