2021 Toyota Avalon Driving

An Aerodynamic Fortress

Your car is your castle. As polished as the Avalon is, its design wasn’t just to catch the attention of passersby—it was also to improve its defenses against strong wind.

The tangential vents on the side of the front bumper create an aerodynamic profile to reduce the coefficient of drag to 0.27, ensuring it can slice through any wind resistance with the precision and ease of a knight’s sword. The available rear spoiler and rear diffuser further improves its efficiency while showing off its inherent sportiness.

The Avalon further shows off its aggressive style with the available TRD cat-back dual exhaust. Designed to reduce back pressure, it’ll help you accelerate on the open roads. Plus, others will quake in your presence once they hear this feature’s menacingly strong sound.

To prepare for battle against the elements, the Avalon comes armed with:

  • Available TRD-tuned shocks
  • Available TRD 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Available 12.9-inch-diameter front rotors

Battle-Ready Performance

Like a steady steed, the Toyota Avalon delivers the power you want at a moment’s notice. With the 3.5L V6, the Avalon releases a heart-pounding 301 horsepower. To keep that power steady and stable, the Avalon utilizes the Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission and available All-Wheel Drive. The latter system maximizes the Avalon’s traction by sending 50% of the torque to the rear wheels when necessary.

Give your rides a sporty edge with the available Adaptive Variable Suspension. How does this feature improve your performance? Well, it intuitively delivers damping adjustments, which results in enhanced control and sharper handling.

With such a fun-to-drive ride, you may want to skip stops to the gas station. Well, with the available 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine, your ventures won’t need to be interrupted. Using its compact battery and lightweight power control unit, the Avalon Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 43 city/44 highway MPG.*

Your Luxurious Throne

You’re the king of the road—and you’ll feel like it once you slide into your leather throne. Available on higher trims, the leather-trimmed seats are as functional as they are comfortable. With its heated and ventilated functions, you’ll be fully relaxed on every ride. The seats come in multiple colors, too. Choose your kingdom’s colors and style:

  • Graphite leather
  • Cognac leather
  • Black leather

Every king needs an advisor to offer guidance and keep them informed. Luckily, the Avalon comes with a virtual advisor, the 7-inch Multi-Information Display. On this customizable instrument cluster, you can easily view your fuel level, turn-by-turn directions, current MPG, and much more.

What else does a ruler need? A jester to keep them entertained and content. The Avalon comes through, again, with its Audio Plus infotainment system, your virtual jester. On the 9-inch touchscreen, you can access your contacts, playlists, and apps. Integrate your compatible smartphone, too, using Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
