Automotive Editor -

The Toyota Avalon sits above the top-selling Camry, and while it's not as popular, the Avalon still offers top-notch reliability, a comfortable ride, and enough technology and safety equipment to keep demanding customers happy. Competition includes Nissan Maxima, Chrysler 300, Buick Lacrosse and Kia Cadenza.

What's New For 2018

Toyota made no major changes to the Avalon for 2018.

Choosing Your Toyota Avalon

All Avalons use a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is EPA-estimated at 21 miles per gallon in city, 30 highway, and 24 combined. Toyotaalso sells a hybrid variant of the Avalon (listed separately).

There are five trim levels — XLE, XLE Plus, XLE Premium, Touring and Limited. Ten airbags andToyota’s Safety Sense Package (T-SSP), which includes adaptive cruise control, front collision prevention system, lane departure alert with steering assist and automatic high-beam.

However, Toyota does not offer any optional package on any of the trims. The only extras are dealer-installed accessories.

XLE

The Avalon range starts with the XLE trim, which is priced at $34,395 (including $895 destination charges). Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, halogen headlights, heated side-view mirrors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, a rear-view camera, and a seven-inch Entune infotainment system with smartphone-enabled navigation. There is also smart-key access for the driver, along with push-button engine start.

XLE Plus

The Avalon XLE Plus commands $36,145. New components include a moonroof, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and smart-key access for both the front doors. These are not major additions, but you're not paying much over the XLE trim either.

XLE Premium

The XLE Premium is priced at $37,595. It gets items on the lower trims plus more tech components like wireless charging, built-in navigation, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Touring

The Avalon Touring will set you back $38,795, but adds LED headlights and running lights, a blacked-out grille, dark grey 18-inch wheels, and a new wood trim for the cabin as standard. There's also a set of paddle shifters behind the leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Limited

Topping the range is the Avalon Limited, priced at a rather steep $42,195. It gets re-styled 18-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, three-zone climate control, perforated leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, ambient lighting, and an upgraded infotainment system with a JBL audio system. It’s worth noting that the Limited trim does not get the cosmetic modifications of the Touring model.

CarsDirect Tip

There's not a lot to separate the XLE, XLE Plus, and XLE Premium, with barely $3,000 difference. With that in mind, it makes the two base trims difficult to recommend – the XLE Premium is the sweet spot, although the Touring and its LED headlights and unique styling isn't a big leap, either.
