The Avalon is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes 268 horsepower and is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Toyota was able to up the Avalon's fuel economy numbers to 21 mpg city, 31 highway because of weight reduction and the new body being more aerodynamic.
Exterior styling is attractive and rather sporty, with an extended rear window that gives the body a bold look and sharp edges at the lower side sections highlighting a sleek shape.
There are also new LED taillights.
On the inside, plenty of headroom and leg room make the Avalon very comfortable for passengers of all sizes.
The controls on the center console are well-placed and easy to use.
Toyota gave the Avalon a number of standard features, including touchscreen control audio system, smart key with push button start, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control.
To boost the luxury quotient of the Avalon, you can opt for tri-zone climate control, power rear sunshade, heated rear seats and the Entune infotainment system.
The Avalon starts at around $33,000 and ranges slightly above $40,000.
