This year, there are two stellar models on the
market - the Toyota Avalon XL Sedan and the Toyota Avalon
XLS Sedan. XLS beefs up the standard luxury features even
further to add tremendous value and enjoyment to the vehicle.
Within the spacious and well-appointed interior
is seating for five or six comfortable passengers depending
on configuration. Models built to accommodate five feature
a center console with cup holders and shift lever, while
the six-passenger vehicles include a dual power split folding
front seat with fold-down armrest.
Among the standard fare in the Avalon are dual zone climate
control, illuminated entry system, power windows, AM/FM
stereo with cassette and CD player, and power door locks
with auto-lock feature. The Avalon XLS model turns up the
volume with additions such as compass, instant fuel economy
readings, fuel range meter, and calendar functions on the
display. As well, the XLS comes with an HVC-integrated dust
and pollen filter.
The Toyota Avalon is available in eight gorgeous
exterior colors, and headlines a sophisticated silhouette
that is functional as well as beautiful. With thicker glass,
steeply-angled windshield, recessed windshield wipers, and
cab-forward design contribute to reduced wind noise.
The Avalon shines in this department, delivering
top performance with an eye towards efficiency. Under the
hood is a 3.0-litre, 24-valve, 4-cam, V6 engine that kicks
up a storm with 210 horsepower and 220 lbs-ft of torque.
The fuel economy rating checks in at 21/29 mpg (city/hwy),
and the standard transmission is a responsive and smooth
four-speed automatic with overdrive. Each vehicle is also
equipped with a MacPherson strut front suspension and independent
dual-link rear suspension.
Safety and Security
With safety a priority for everybody these days,
the Avalon responds with standards such as three-point seatbelts
with pretensioners, a driver side air bag, passenger side
air bag, side impact air bags, ABS brakes, and child safety
locks in the rear seating area. Front pillars, center pillars,
and roof rails are made of shock-absorbing materials. The
XLS is bolstered further by available traction control,
Brake Assist, and Vehicle Skid Control. XLS also features
an electrochromatic rear view mirror.
