The new Avalon is the third generation of Toyota's large sedan, derived from the same the midsize Toyota Camry and the Lexus ES330 entry-level luxury sedan. Toyota put considerable effort into giving the new Avalon a more distinct identity. It's now larger and more luxurious than the Camry. It's also more powerful and roomier inside than the Lexus ES330. “The all-new Avalon is distinctive, stylish and the most American vehicle of any Toyota product to date, " said Don Esmond, senior vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division in the United States.
The Avalon comes equipped with a new 3.5L V6 280-hp engine paired to a five-speed sequential shift automatic transmission. With this new engine, the Avalon can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 6.6 seconds. An estimated fuel economy of 22 city and 31 highway miles per gallon is another amenity of the new redesign. New exterior enhancements include a dual rear exhaust, front chrome grille, and a four-inch longer wheelbase. The extended wheelbase adds to the interior space and comfort of the passengers. Also new are the rear reclining seats, which recline up to 10 degrees.
Comfort is the key word when it comes to the Avalon. The new Avalon is 5 inches longer than its predecessor is, and by rerouting the exhaust pipes, Toyota engineers created a flat floor in the back and 40.9 inches of legroom, versus 35.6 inches in the Lexus ES330. For added comfort, the Avalon's rear seats recline by 10 degrees. Five long-legged adults can sit in the car comfortably. For the driver and front-seat occupant, there are no legs knocking against the center console. Rear passengers, including the one in the middle, can rest their feet on a flat floor. Headroom is good. All models in the range feature front seat-mounted side airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags, in addition to a driver's knee airbag. A brake-assist system determines whether a driver has used the full potential of the brakes in an emergency; if the system senses that more braking is required, ABS will activate until the pedal is released.
The new Avalon's total package of power, safety features, style and roominess puts it at the head of this class and maintaining its performance can be well taken cared of by superior Toyota auto parts from Partstrain.
