Corollas and Camrys are for the kids: The 2021 Toyota Avalon normally takes up residence as the developed-up sedan in the company’s fleet. That does not suggest it’s retired: The Avalon now presents all-wheel drive and sporty XSE and TRD styles to go with the usual XLE, Touring, Restricted and Hybrid editions. 

What variety of vehicle is the Avalon?

The 2021 Avalon is a five-seat 4-doorway sedan. It is a comfortable highway cruiser, one particular that is ready to soak up very long-distance drives—especially in significant-miler hybrid sort, the place it’s as thrifty as a smaller sedan but blessed with a massive inside. The TRD and XSE styles roughen the trip, and that misses the issue.

What’s new for the 2021 Toyota Avalon?

This yr the Avalon gains regular Android Vehicle, as perfectly as some new colour options. All-wheel drive can be ordered on the XLE and Restricted, too.

All Avalons have a tapered roofline and a sleekly rounded shape that wears trim headlights and taillights. The difference involving XLEs and Limiteds and Tourings, and the extra adventurous XSE and TRD editions starts with a tall mesh grille that stands out from the usually sober shape. Inside of, the Avalon’s tall infotainment touchscreen provides the cabin a modern day glimpse, even though touches of wooden and aluminum distinguish the luxury styles from the extra sporting variations. 

Avalon consumers can decide on involving a 301-horsepower V-six or a 215-hp hybrid four-cylinder, and involving entrance- and all-wheel drive. Our pick’s the Hybrid, which returns excellent EPA-rated gasoline mileage of 43 mpg merged the V-six car’s substantially more rapidly from a cease, but it’s also thirstier. The Avalon’s strikingly composed trip is its greatest asset, and XSE and TRD styles roughen that up with major wheels and stiffer shocks. 

The Avalon’s dimensions retains it from activity-sedan status, but it pays off in huge inside home. It can seat five older people, and has quite comfortable entrance seats wrapped in synthetic leather-based or the actual things, with heating and cooling. Limiteds have attractive wooden trim, even though XSEs don ribbons of aluminum.

The Avalon’s nine.-inch portrait-design touchscreen includes Apple CarPlay and Android Vehicle compatibility, and each individual Avalon gets automatic unexpected emergency braking, too. Great crash-check functionality and a very long checklist of regular functions arrive with each individual Avalon so does an average guarantee, but Toyota now includes a two-yr/25,000-mile maintenance program for absolutely free.
