The 2015 Toyota Avalon is a large-sized four sedan that is targeted at people looking for luxury on a budget. Unlike its predecessor which was more suited for retirees, the new Avalon will appeal to a much younger generation.
One of the most noticeable features in the new Toyota sedan is the sleeker and more appealing shape. It features a curvier and bold grill that gives the car a more sportier yet luxurious appearance. This will certainly appeal to a much younger population (30 to 60 year olds). The front headlights (Quadrabeam headlights focus light) as well as tailgate lights are much narrower while the radiator grille is more pronounced. The aggressive look is further emphasized by the much wider bumper.
The new Toyota Avalon Limited comes with a rear sunshade, LED daytime running lamps, HID headlights, Automatic High Beam feature and 18 inch alloy wheels. The external styling seems to share similarities with its cousin, the Lexus ES. Size of models: WIDTH-72.2 in.,HEIGHT-57.5 in.,LENGTH-195.3 in., WHEEL BASE 111 in.
The 2015 Toyota Avalon interior is more refined than its predecessor. The cabin is more spacious and can accommodate four large adults quite comfortably. The interior has a futuristic appeal which is evident from the much improved central console, soft-touch material that covers the upper door trim as well as the dashboard. The seating position of the new Toyota Avalon is much lower than the previous model. This has also increased the legroom both at the front and also rear.
The steering cover, cockpit and door trims are covered with upholstered leather that features real stitches. Some sections come with ventilated leather for enhanced comfort and support. Standard equipment for all new Avalon is Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Avalon Limited has add Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), helps you with adjusting speed and control how far are you from front vehicle. Another help in drive is backup camera which helps you in rare driving, it shown on your display whenever you shift speed in reverse.
The 2015 Toyota Avalon engine comes in two variants; a 2.5-litre straight four cylinder and a 3.5 litre V6, 6-speed Shiftable Automatic. Fuel consumption is 21 mpg City/31 mpg Hwy. The 2.5-liter gasoline engine churns 200 horsepower and can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-100kph) in 8.2 seconds. The more powerful 3.5-litre V6 generates 268 horses and 248 lb-ft of torque. It will take the car 6.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60mph.
Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which delivers power to either the front wheels (FWD) or all wheels (AWD). The V6 version comes with Sport, Eco, and Normal driving modes for adjusting throttle and steering. Paddle shift controls are standard feature for all the 2015 V-6 models. All Avalon models will have dual exhaust pipes, it is clearly that this isn’t just ordinary car.
