What You Will Like

With the current Avalon, Toyota worked to modernize its personality, remaking it from a model that was comfort-oriented and conservative to one that feels like other modern luxury sedans, with a more sophisticated, well-detailed look and feel. These updates included much-improved handling, some noteworthy in-cabin technology and a fuel-efficient Avalon Hybrid model.

The resulting Avalon is a standout, and when compared against comfort-oriented mainstream large sedans or even against luxury-brand models, the Avalon has a competitive look, feel and feature set. Plus, the Avalon Hybrid's smooth hybrid powertrain and its 40-mpg city rating make it a package that's hard to beat.

What's New For 2017

The Avalon remains essentially unchanged for 2017, however Toyota's Safety Sense System, previously only available as an option on limited trims, is now a standard feature on all Avalons. Toyota's Safety Sense System includes automatic high beams, dynamic radar controlled cruise control, a pre-collision system and a lane departure warning system.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 3 Years / 36,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 2 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

NHTSA Crash Test Rating

  • Frontal Driver: 4 stars
  • Frontal Passenger: 5 stars
  • Side Driver: 5 stars
  • Side Passenger: 5 stars
  • Rollover Rating: 4 stars

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) provides consumers with vehicle safety information based on independent testing, primarily front and side crash rating results, and more recently rollover ratings, to aid consumers in their vehicle purchase decisions.

Introduction

The Toyota Avalon is a large, comfortable sedan that’s smooth and quiet underway, a car that’s easy to live with.

Safety is the foremost news for Toyota’s sizable sedan. The 2017 Toyota Avalon gets a group of active-safety features standard: adaptive cruise, forward-collision warning (with automatic emergency braking), lane-departure warnings, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Prior to its 2013 redesign, Toyota’s full-size, front-wheel-drive sedan had a strong visual connection to the less-costly Camry. Since then, despite shared running gear, kinship is nearly nonexistent.

Refreshed for 2016, Avalons can have either a gasoline V6 engine or a Hybrid (gasoline/electric) powertrain. Gas-engine Avalons come in five trim levels: XLE, XLE Plus, XLE Premium, Limited, and Touring. Hybrids are offered only in three versions.

Smooth-running and strong, the familiar 3.5-liter V6 develops 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission incorporates a sport-shift mode and paddle shifters. Throttle blipping helps to smooth the downshifts. Eco, Sport, and Normal modes alter the Avalon’s throttle, shift feel, and steering.

In the Avalon Hybrid, total output from the 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and twin electric motors is 200 horsepower. The system works with nickel-metal hydride batteries. Hybrids use a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Three driving modes are available: EV, Eco, and Sport. EV mode lets the sedan run on battery power alone, no faster than 25 mph. Eco mode reduces throttle response, whereas the Sport setting sharpens responses from the throttle and transmission. Though Sport mode feels quicker, actual performance changes only a little.

Full-size competitors include the Hyundai Azera and Kia Cadenza, along with Chevrolet’s Impala and Ford’s Taurus.

Basic safety features start with rear outboard-seat airbags and dual front knee airbags. A standard rearview camera is especially helpful, because the rear end isn’t easy to judge. All Avalons get new active-safety features for 2017. Touring models add blind-spot monitoring. Rear cross-traffic alert is available for upper trim levels.

Crash-testing has gone well. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave Avalon five stars overall, but only four for frontal impact and rollover resistance (a calculated score rather than an actual test).

Good scores in each crash-test by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety made Avalon a Top Safety Pick. With automatic emergency braking, the rating rose to Superior. Headlights scored either Marginal or Poor.

Lineup

Avalon XLE V6 ($33,300) has the 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seat upholstery, power heated front seats 17-inch alloy wheels, and a rearview camera. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) Avalon XLE Plus V6 ($35,050) adds a moonroof, pushbutton start, auto-dimming mirror, and universal garage-door opener. Avalon XLE Premium V6 ($36,500) comes with navigation, driver’s seat/mirror memory, and Qi wireless charging.

Avalon Touring V6 ($37,700) gets 18-inch wheels, sporty suspension tuning, a unique front end, plus LED headlights and daytime running lights.

Avalon Limited V6 ($41,100) includes perforated leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, three-zone climate control, rear sunshade, JBL audio, HID headlights, and LED daytime running lights.

Avalon Hybrid XLE Plus ($37,300), Hybrid XLE Premium ($38,750), and Hybrid Limited ($42,600) are equipped similarly and feature the gas-electric powertrain.

Walkaround

Contemporary in appearance and refreshing in theme, the current Avalon body is totally unrelated to Toyota’s Camry. As a result, there’s nothing dull about viewing or driving an Avalon.

A swooping roofline and flared rear fenders help give the Avalon an eminent presence. So do the rear fenders, with upscale-looking taillights. With its sheetmetal flowing smoothly and gracefully from the roof and doors, an Avalon could almost be taken for a more expensive Lexus model.

Interior

Spacious inside, befitting a full-size sedan, the contemporary-styled Avalon cabin has been carefully composed and thoughtfully detailed. Materials are premium quality, while fit/finish approaches Lexus level.

Flush-mounted touch switches add to the clean, upmarket appearance. Capacitive controls for climate and audio systems are intuitive, mounted near the driver.

Five occupants (or four larger-size adults) can expect quiet comfort. Acoustic glass in the windshield and side windows helps create the hushed environment.

Front seats are a bit short on lateral support, and lower than customary. Combined with a relatively low dashboard, that arrangement gives the Avalon an airier feel. Lumbar support and seatback padding are sufficient to ensure comfort on longer journeys.

Rear seats rank with the best. Seating positions are nicely-contoured, and comparatively long lower cushions promise suitable thigh support. Headroom and leg space are both bountiful. Slight head-ducking may be needed during entry/exit.

Avalon seats are upholstered in impressively supple leather, with authentic stitching. Limited models get ventilated, premium leather.

Helpful storage spots abound, including bins inside front and rear doors. Trunk volume totals 16 cubic feet, with a wide opening and flat load floor. Trunks are slightly smaller in Hybrid Avalons.

Infotainment systems lack Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Driving Impressions

Comfort and control definitely take precedence over sportiness. Refined and well-composed, the sedan is far removed from Avalons of years ago, which were known for their pillow-soft, floaty ride.

Suspension tuning is significantly more firm nowadays for more precise control, yielding a direct feel of the road. A sufficiently absorbent suspension gives the Avalon ride quality that’s firm, but far from harsh.

Performance also impresses. Both powertrains respond emphatically and smoothly. A V6 Avalon can accelerate to 60 mph in a relatively brisk 6.7 seconds, versus 8.2 seconds for the Hybrid.

In both gas-engine and Hybrid form, the Avalon drives much like a smaller automobile. Coping well with flawed pavement, the Avalon feels precise and natural. Sport mode can tighten the steering, when tauter handling is warranted. All-disc brakes deliver strong stops, though a spongy pedal impedes full confidence.

Hybrid Avalons weigh only about 100 pounds more than V6 models, and perform admirably. Sport mode in Hybrids helps produce the confidence level that’s needed when passing.

Both powertrains are quiet while cruising, with little engine sound evident, though hard acceleration causes the Hybrid to emit some coarse notes. In Sport mode, some whining can be heard from the Hybrid.

Naturally, Hybrids are the choice for fuel-efficiency, EPA-rated at a laudable 40/39 mpg City/Highway, or 40 mpg Combined. The V6 Avalon consumes far more fuel, EPA-rated at 21/30 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. With its 680-mile estimated range, the Hybrid is one of the thriftiest large sedans on the market.

Summary

Truly spacious as well as stylishly modern, an Avalon might not stimulate the senses, but it delivers the goods in comfort, ride/handling, and performance. XLE and XLE Plus trim levels tend to be the best values, while the Limited closes in on Lexus territory. Hybrid fuel-efficiency is hard to pass up.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
