2018 Toyota Avalon – Elegant Design
The Toyota has made a genuine effort in improving the exterior design and that is appreciated. It is a handsomely designed car with a graceful approach. The broad jaw along with the headlights provide a much-needed toughness to an otherwise smooth and elegant sedan.
We appreciate the fact that the 2018 Avalon is one of those sedans that can spaciously accommodate 5 passengers and still give you considerable cargo space. The front seats are not as luxurious as you’d expect but are still pretty comfortable and soft. The seats come with impressive material and stitching and opt for the top range if you’d like the seats to be cooled.
The rear seats are spacious enough for three adults. Even though the lower roofline means that one will have to duck slightly to get in, the comfort and space inside, more than makeup for it.
It has a 16 cubic foot trunk and a 14 cubic foot volume for the hybrid model. The interior is well designed and looks impressive. It is more visually appealing than most of the other sedans in the same price segment.
The cabin is very quiet, thanks to the acoustic glass that is used for the windshield and side windows. It cuts out the noise successfully while cruising and even the engine noise is kept to a bare minimum.
Safety and Entertainment
Being a Toyota, your safety and entertainment are also taken good care of in the 2018 Toyota Avalon. It comes with all the standard equipment like leather seats, heated front seats, 17-inch wheels. There is also a 7-inch touchscreen and a rearview camera. There are excellent optional features and even though the infotainment system lacks smartphone support, it is relatively easy to use. However, while it supports Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will not be there.
The Toyota has not compromised on the safety of its customers, giving the 2018 Toyota Avalon 10 airbags and Toyota’s Safety Sense P that includes forward collision warning, active lane control, automatic high beam, cruise control and automatic emergency braking.
The 2018 Toyota Avalon will have a 3.5-liter V-6 engine. This engine will give you a 268 horsepower and 248-pound feet of torque. It is expected to be equipped with paddle shift controls, along with Eco, Normal and Sport Driving modes that create a different feel when it comes to steering, throttle and shift feel.
The performance is going to be smooth, just like you’d expect from any Toyota car. The 2018 Toyota Avalon can zoom up from 0 mph to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds.
Buyers can also choose a hybrid powertrain with an inline-4 with two motors that are powered by nickel-metal hydride batteries.
