The front-wheel drive Avalon is available in three trim levels: XL, XLS and Limited. All are powered by a 268-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. The XL trim is well-equipped, with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control and a six-disc CD changer. The XLS trim adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a power moonroof and leather upholstery, while Limited trims are further outfitted with heated/ventilated front seats and an upgraded audio system. Standard safety features on all trims include anti-lock disc brakes, front side-impact airbags, overhead curtain airbags for front and rear occupants, and a driver's side knee airbag. New for 2009, active front head restraints, vehicle stability and traction control systems, and brake assist are now standard on all trim levels. For 2009, the Toyota Avalon receives new standard safety equipment and satellite radio pre-wiring. Additionally, the Touring trim has been dropped from the model lineup.
