2013 Toyota Avalon
Designed, developed and manufactured in the United States, the all-new 2013 Toyota Avalon has undergone a dynamic transformation introducing increased performance and athletic styling. To help reposition Toyota’s flagship within the premium midsize segment, the Avalon flaunts greater styling sophistication with more compact exterior dimensions and a chassis capable of vastly elevated levels of control and handling. Though the car rides on a long 111-inch wheelbase, the Avalon’s suspension revisions ensure an agile and nimble ride. Paddle shifters are even supplied on XLE Touring and Avalon models. The Avalon features a 3.5-liter V6 working through a 6-speed automatic generating 268 horsepower. And for the first time, Toyota offers the Avalon as a gas-electric hybrid boasting 40mpg city and a possible driving range of up to 680 miles. Premium materials and user friendly cutting edge technologies are the focus of the Avalon’s interior which cleverly utilizes an eBin – an electronics storage tray designed for 2 devices with charging ports. And no need to worry, the trunk room is still a very spacious 16 cubic feet, 2 feet less on hybrid models. Available in 7 trims, Avalon pricing starts at under $32,000 while Avalon Hybrid begins at just over $36,000.
