What to Expect from Your New Toyota Avalon
The Avalon saw some major changes for the 2013 model year, and since then the updates have been minor in comparison. Despite that, there are still some new additions to the 2016 model that make it stand out from the 2013 and 2014 versions.
New Toyota Avalon Hybrid Version
Perhaps the most noticeable update to the 2016 Toyota Avalon comes in the form of the hybrid version, which was not previously offered. This gives drivers the option of the traditional luxury vehicle or a slightly more expensive but gas-saving hybrid version that can help save money over time and limit damage to the environment.
Toyota Avalon General Changes
Although the changes to the 2016 Avalon were small, there are still several worth mentioning. The XLE model does have a slight price increase, but this is due to inflation as well as the addition of a rearview camera that is now standard.
Toyota Avalon Mechanics
Previous models of the Avalon only offered a standard engine, and it remains the same from the 2013 (and 2014) model. This standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. If you go with this engine, you can expect to get 248 pound-feet of torque and 280 horsepower, a slight increase (of 12 horsepower) from the previous model year. As of 2014, this engine got 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway*.
The big change in terms of mechanics is the addition of the hybrid engine. This includes a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine in combination with a powered motor. Together, they can reach 200 horsepower. This engine will get an estimated 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway*.
Toyota Avalon Technology
Every 2016 Toyota Avalon comes standard with a touchscreen display that is multifunctional. Other features include Bluetooth, the Toyota Neptune system, the back corner caution traffic system, a smart key, a back view digital camera, an electric moon roof, and memory front seats that are heated and leather.
