The 2013 Toyota Avalon is here and anyone who has never slid behind the wheel of Toyota’s top of the line passenger car is missing a treat. The new styling and new interior is a complete departure from our grandmother’s car.
Toyota launched in 1995 on the Camry platform replacing the Cressida, but now they are launching the 2013 Avalon, aiming at the younger buyer, I think they hit the bulls’ eye.
It has features like quadrabeam headlights, paddle shifters, three driving modes, ECO, Sport and EV. The switches on the enter stack are the new Capacity switches, light touch and the operation has been completed. 2013 Toyota Avalon is here
There’s a choice of different models to fit any lifestyle, XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring, Limited, Hybrid XLE Premium, Hybrid XLE Touring, Hybrid Limited starting at $30,000 and change going up to $39,990 and higher depending on the option packages you choose.
The 2013 Toyota Avalon is beautiful inside and out, the sound quality inside is amazing, and it has acoustic windows, acoustic front windshield, rain sensing wipers, and for aerodynamics they tucked the wipers down under the hood for better flow through the air, less noise and better fuel mileage.
They added 2 inches to the instrument panel, added MID Graphics and a new analog digital gauge combo. They also added real thread for the leather trim, smoke chrome trim, and a 10 way power driver seat with heated and cooling options.
I was amazed with the Avalon because it’s close to Lexus, but after driving it and comparing the cars, I might lean towards the Avalon. Be sure to check this sweet ride out if your family is in the market for a new family hauler.
Driving the Avalon on the open road, in the mountains and in bumper to bumper traffic is easy as can be. Just shift the 6-speed paddle shift automatic, and listen to the 268 horsepower V6 or the 154 horse-powered Hybrid. It’s impressive with the performance and 21 city 31 highway fuel mileage isn’t too shabby either.
Bottom line, go drive one!
