Introduction

The Toyota Avalon is a full-size sedan with abundant interior space and leather-upholstered comfort. Sliding in and out of its seats is easy, and it’s smooth and quiet underway. Devoid of the latest in swoopy design, its near-classic appearance is aging well. With its modern safety features, the Avalon shows no significant change for the 2018 model year. Avalon was last redesigned for the 2013 model year.

Two distinct versions are available: one with a conventional V6 gasoline engine, and the other with a hybrid (gasoline/electric) powertrain. Both are fuel-efficient, and the Avalon Hybrid ranks among the most thrifty full-size family cruisers on the market.

In regular Avalons, a strong, smooth-running 3.5-liter V6 produces 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. With a 24-mpg Combined rating from the EPA, it’s right on track in terms of fuel efficiency with the large-sedan competition.

The Avalon Hybrid ties a 2.5-liter, 200-horsepower, four-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor, coupled to a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) takes the place of the 6-speed automatic. Acceleration is passable; reaching 60 mph takes 8.2 seconds. The EPA estimates 40 mpg in Combined city and highway driving.

Gas-engine Avalons come in five trim levels. Hybrids are available in XLE Plus, Premium, and Touring trim.

For the 2017 model year, Toyota made its Safety Sense group of safety features standard on all models. Included are a lane-departure warning with steering assist, forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams.

Many automakers continue to limit modern active-safety equipment to top trim levels. Making them standard raises the status of Avalon against such full-size rivals as the Chevrolet Impala, Ford Taurus, and Hyundai Azera, helping to justify its higher price. In addition to a standard rearview camera, each Avalon has ten airbags.

A solid crash-test record also helps. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave Avalon a five-star overall rating and five stars in side-impact testing, though its frontal-impact test earned only a four-star score. Naming Avalon a Top Safety Pick, with Good crash-test scores, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has rated it Superior for frontal crash protection.

In any trim level, the Avalon is abundantly equipped. Top models come across as veritable luxury sedans.

Lineup

The 2018 Toyota Avalon XLE V6 ($33,500) is equipped with a V6 engine, 6-speed automatic, leather-trimmed seat upholstery, heated front seats, pushbutton start, rearview camera, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, 17-inch wheels, and the Safety Sense group. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $895 destination charge.)

Avalon XLE Plus V6 ($35,250) adds a moonroof and auto-dimming inside mirror. XLE Premium V6 ($36,700) comes with navigation, 9-speaker audio, driver’s memory, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and wireless charging.

Avalon Touring V6 ($37,900) gets a slightly revised suspension, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, and LED daytime running lights.

Avalon Limited V6 ($41,300) includes heated/cooled front seats, three-zone climate control, heated rear seats, HID headlights, power rear-window sunshade, JBL 11-speaker audio, and softer perforated leather.

Avalon Hybrid XLE Plus ($37,500), Hybrid XLE Premium ($38,950), and Hybrid Limited ($42,800) come with the gasoline/electric powertrain and CVT.

Walkaround

Avalons used to be related to the Toyota Camry, but those days of equivalence are long gone. Today’s Avalon benefits from a contemporary, refreshing appearance.

Little, if any, trace of Camry styling can be seen, especially since the Camry’s recent redesign. Avalons boast gracefully shaped sheetmetal, even if overall presence isn’t as stirring as some European-brand competitors.

Curiously, the wide, deep front end looks overly aggressive for a sedan that aims toward family motoring. Vertically oriented daytime running lights enhance that effect, looking a bit out of place.

Interior

Simple and straightforward, the Avalon cabin isn’t as enticing as its exterior, lacking the posh details of European luxury models. Price aside, though, the Avalon ranks among the quietest, most comfortable sedans to be found.

It’s also one of the few that offers space for five adults, along with a full load of luggage. Avalons offer 16 cubic feet of trunk space, but Hybrid trunks are smaller by 2 cubic feet.

Though comfortable, front seats lack the level of lateral support that some drivers prefer. Still, they’re wide and flat, easy to get in an out, and seem solidly built. Soft leather boasts commendable stitching.

Rear seats are suitably contoured. Three average-size adults can occupy the back bench without troublesome squeezing. Slight head-ducking is needed to enter, due to the low roofline. But once inside, expect plenty of clearance for heads and legs.

Interior fittings are carefully installed, down to the small details. Even the graining of the leather upholstery seems to match neatly.

A two-tone treatment helps separate the amply-sized dashboard. Climate controls are operated via an attractive screen, but touch-sensitive controls have done away with the tactile feel of traditional buttons and knobs. Also unfortunately, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities are absent.

Driving Impressions

Avalon’s supple ride is accompanied by an admirable level of control. No hints remain of the floatiness that prevailed in early Avalons. Though the ride is firm, far removed from pillowy-soft, it’s rarely harsh.

Solid powertrains yield capable performance. Nothing about the gasoline V6 is overpowering, but it delivers plenty of passing power, while comparatively easy on fuel. All V6 versions include paddle shifters, and acceleration to 60 mph takes only 6.7 seconds. Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes can alter steering effort, throttle operation, and shifting feel.

As for quietness, the Avalon’s hushed ride compares favorably with that of any sedan, including far more costly models. Credit goes largely to use of acoustic glass in the windshield and side windows. Both versions are quiet while cruising, without observable engine sound. Only when accelerating hard can the Hybrid’s coarse engine sound be heard. Sport mode in the Hybrid reveals slight electric-motor whine.

Fuel economy in the regular Avalon is EPA-rated at 21/31 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. The Hybrid scores near the top of the gas-mileage scale, EPA-rated at 40/39 mpg City/Highway, or 40 mpg Combined.

Summary

The Toyota Avalon is safe and comfortable, a premium model that’s roomy and easy to with. On the road, the Avalon is smooth yet controlled and quite quiet. The Limited trim is luxurious.

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.
