What is the 2018 Toyota Avalon's powertrain like?

Standard powertrain on the 2018 Avalon is driven by a 3.5-liter DOHC V6, putting out 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Combined with a 6-speed ECT-I automatic transmission, the V6 puts out impressive power, and still achieves up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway. The gasoline-powered Avalon earns an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle certification in 2018. The Avalon sits on a fully-independent suspension with a stabilizer bar, which offers a smooth and dynamic drive, as well as underbody diffuser panels which reduce turbulence for a more controlled drive and less wind noise in the cabin. Those seeking a more exciting experience can enable the Avalon's Sport mode for quicker steering, or opt for the available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for greater control over shifting. Efficiency can be maximized with the available Avalon Hybrid, which utilizes Hybrid Synergy Drive technology in combination with a continuously variable transmission to achieve a fuel economy of up to 40 miles per gallon. A multi-information display allows drivers to keep an eye on hybrid performance through current/average fuel economy, distance to empty, energy monitor and more.

What makes the Avalon so luxurious?

An assortment of standard and available features gives the Avalon the sophisticated and luxurious feeling that sets it apart from other sedans. The 2018 Avalon's front fascia is distinguished by a bold grille outlined with bright chrome trim, as well as available LED headlights and daytime running lights. Around the back, these features are echoed by a standard integrated dual chrome-tipped exhaust with a chrome-accented cover, as well as standard smoked LED taillights. In the interior, standard soft-touch leather upholstery with French stitching give even the base Avalon trims a high-quality feeling. That feeling can be extended with the optional 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats. Acoustic noise-reducing glass on the windshield and front windows keeps the Avalon's cabin quiet and peaceful, and an available power rear sunshade protects backseat passengers and upholstery from strong sunlight coming through the vehicle's wide, sloping rear windshield. Driver and passenger comfort can be maximized by available three-zone automatic climate control.

How does the 2018 Avalon address safety and security?

The 2018 Avalon is outfitted with a wide array of safety and security features, including Toyota's Star Safety system and Toyota Safety Sense P. The Star Safety System is a comprehensive feature suite, which maintains driving safety with Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Brake Assist, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and Smart Stop technology. Safety Sense P, meanwhile, offers higher tech safety features such as Pre-Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, automatic high beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The available Safety Connect system adds on emergency roadside assistance and automatic collision notification, as well as a stolen vehicle locating function. Ten standard airbags and available blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert round out the Avalon's safety and security lineup for 2018.
