2016 Toyota Avalon Review

The 2016 Toyota Avalon is the fourth and
latest generation of the Avalon series from the Japanese car
manufacturers, Toyota. It was unveiled in the 2015 Chicago
Auto Show and is expected to come in five trims: XLE, XLE
Premium, XLE Plus, Limited and Touring Avalon. Generally, the
2016 Toyota Avalon is a slight modification of its
predecessor, the 2015 Toyota Avalon.

Toyota might have chosen not to make
something more like an overhaul to the features of the
previous generation in the making of this new one with the
hope that the positive reception the 2013 model got would
have an effect again this time. The new Toyota Avalon has
retained the sporty look that had the 2013 Avalon tagged the
most beautiful Toyota saloon car ever. The few changes
include; introduction of a wider lower front grille with the
upper grille narrowed a little, fog lights replaced by newly
designed turn signals, refined LED rear lights, new-design
17” alloy wheels and Chrome rear bumper accent. The general
outer of this car is basically a sportier version of the
generation it replaces.

Interior

The interior of the 2016 Toyota Avalon might
not be that sporty or different from the previous generations
but it surely beats them in controll ability and comfort. The
car is roomy and fairly composed and no changes have been
made in terms of cabin space. There is a little bit more
lateral support for the front seats while the rear seats are
simply the best you can find in large sedans.

The 2016 Toyota Avalon has a 16 feet cubed trunk, and
the flat floor and wide opening simply give the user a lot of
space to carry small stuff such as grocery bags. In terms of
safety, the car is equipped with thorax side-thorax and knee
airbags for the back and front passengers respectively. Just
like previous models, the Toyota Avalon 2016 is fitted
with backup camera system, adaptive cruise control, automatic
headlights and a forward collision warning system.

Engine

The strong and smooth 3.5-liter, 268-horsepower V-6 is the
more common of the two powertrains with the other option
being the Avalon Hybrid that is comparatively interesting.
The Avalon Hybrid is equipped with
a combination of batteries and motors to make the
200-horsepower, 4-cylinder engine that can hit 0-60 mph
within 8 seconds. Fuel consumption is at a high rate of 40
mpg EPA-combined.

Release Date and Price

The 2016 Toyota Avalon is expected to be out
in the market later this spring with the official date yet to
be revealed. Toyota did not reveal the price of the car
either but with the 2015 version going for US$34,000-38,000
this new model is expected to be valued at the same price or
slightly higher.
