The Interior

Many of the best spots in Houston are meant to be enjoyed with others. For instance, do you really want to go to The Music Box Theater alone or with just one other person? No, you want to bring your buds along, and that’s easy to do with the Toyota Avalon. This large sedan seats up to five people comfortably – and comfortably doesn’t just mean everyone has ample space to spread out. Sure, it’s roomy enough that you can put some large adults in the back without hearing them complain, but that’s just the half of it. The leather upholstery is soft and supple, and the interior is filled with premium materials that give it an elegant look and feel.

The Infotainment

So, you have some family in town, and everyone wants to see the Space Center Houston. That’s pretty easy to imagine, isn’t it? It’s a little chilly in the morning, so you throw on some gloves. After all, the family will want to see Independence Plaza, and that means a trip outdoors will be in order. You’re in the Avalon with your gloves on, and your nephew says he wants to listen to music. No problem. This infotainment system uses capacitive buttons that are similar to a touchscreen. Unlike most touch screens, though, you can use it with gloves. Crisis averted. In a matter of seconds, the music will come through the eight-speaker audio system. You can also use the infotainment system for navigation, Bluetooth, and more.

Trim Options

You like choices. One day, you want a steak at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, and the next day, all you can think of is some brisket from Goode Company Barbeque. You don’t just want choices when it comes to food, either: you want to choose what you drive, and you have some nice options with the Avalon.

The Avalon XLE is the base trim, and it has all the previously mentioned infotainment options, plus some cool autonomous features, such as a forward collision warning with pedestrian decision and automatic braking, and lane departure warning with lane keep assist.

The Avalon XLE Plus is similar, but it has some extra features, including a moonroof and a built-in garage door opener. Plus, it has an extra speaker, bumping the sound system up to a nine-speaker system.

You can take it to the next level with the XLE Premium. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert will keep you safe, and wireless charging is a must if you love your mobile devices.

If you really want to show off, consider the Touring trim. Premium leather upholstery, larger wheels, and an upgraded suspension system will make quite the impression. Plus, the upgraded wood trim looks incredibly expensive.

Finally, you have the XLE Limited: This is the nicest of the Avalons. It has cool features such as tri-zone automatic climate control and an 11-speaker audio system. The rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically turn on, and everyone gets heated seats.

The Toyota Avalon comes with some amazing options, and it’s time to see those options in person. Mike Calvert Toyota in Houston, Texas, has your next Avalon in stock, ready to go home today. Come out for a test drive and leave with your new vehicle.
