The Toyota Avalon has always delivered high-end comfort, a spacious interior and a stylish look. The 2014 version adds a plethora of luxurious features, making it more of an entry-level luxury car than a full-size sedan. The quiet and roomy interior, coupled with superior handling, make this a perfect option for the daily commuter who wants plenty of room to bring friends and family out on the town.
The 2014 Avalon is offered in four trim levels – XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited. The base XLE comes standard with a number of sought-after features, including 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, full power accessories, cruise control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, an auxiliary input and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with a USB/iPod interface. Moving up to the XLE Premium gets you all this plus a sunroof.
The Touring trim level comes standard with 18-inch wheels, fog lights, paddle shifters, a navigation system and Toyota’s Entune smartphone app integration system. The Limited trim features everything above, plus xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a blind-spot monitoring system, rear-cross traffic alerts, ambient cabin lighting, tri-zone automatic climate controls, upgraded leather upholstery, heated rear seats and a 7-inch touchscreen.
The Avalon comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, generating 268 horsepower and 248 pounds to feet of torque. The V6 is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. EPA estimated fuel economy stands at 25 miles per gallon combined for the XLE and XLE Premium trims, while the Touring and Limited drop slightly to 24 mpg combined.
