Checking Out the 2016 Toyota Avalon

Posted Saturday, Nov 07, 2015 by nhtwpprod

Los Angeles Toyota dealers are preparing for the arrival of the brand new 2016 Avalon. If you’re in the market for a great vehicle, the Avalon has set the benchmark for the past 20 years, we don’t see any reason for that to change with 2016. When it comes to midsize sedans, the Avalon offers everything that a family needs. Whether you’re commuting to work or hauling the kids to practice, there’s plenty of room and all sorts of technology and comfort features. Of course, the Avalon has the added benefit of Toyota’s serious safety features as well, so that wherever you’re going you can be confident that you’ll be safe and sound.

How It Looks

The 2016 Toyota Avalon catches the eye in ways that many other midsize sedans fail to achieve. This updated sedan just looks like a luxury vehicle. With a sleek coupe-like profile, chrome trim, ample room, and a spacious trunk, you can’t go wrong. When you add in the new front grille and turn signals, as well as the LED headlights and daytime running lights, you have a car that looks like it costs much more than it actually does. Why not have the look and feel of a luxury car without the hefty price tag?

What’s New?

Along with some outside appearance changes, the 2016 Avalon features a great sporty suspension and an Entune Audio Plus system, and some models even feature Qi wireless charging. It sports super chrome alloy or dark gray painted alloy wheels and a great new choice of paint colors including:

  • Ooh La La Rouge Mica
  • Sizzling Crimson Mica
  • Parisian Night Pearl

Interior colors include almond, light gray, and black, and a light gray accent stitching.

The quiet interior has been a noteworthy feature since the Avalon debuted, in the new model you’ll find that the tradition continues with a combination of sound absorbing and insulating materials, acoustic front and side glass, and foam injected rocker panels. This provides a smooth and silent ride so the road noise won’t drown out conversation or music.

There are several small changes that you may not have thought necessary but that will make the experience of driving or riding in the 2016 Avalon even more pleasurable. How about power windows that slow down as they approach the top of the frame? A coin box that smoothly glides open and closed due to a damper? Tilting and telescoping steering column? Yes, all of these are included in the new Avalon.

Under the Hood

Sure it looks good, but what about what’s under the hood? Not to worry. The performance is as luxurious as the look. With a standard 3.5 liter, dual overhead cam V6, and dual VVT-I, the 2016 Avalon gives you tons of power. Like: 268 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of torque at 4700 rpm. When you add in the 6 speed auto transmission, your new Avalon can move from zero to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. Power and speed is not a worry with the 2016 Avalon.
