2011 Toyota Avalon 4-DR LTD Sedan
The outward appeal of the Avalon is refined and alluring. The smooth lines that shape the frame of the Avalon give a sense of sophistication without being stuffy. This model has a newly-designed front and rear end that bring out the profile of the Avalon. The 17” Alloy wheels and Chrome accents further add to the style of the Avalon.
A size-able sedan, the Avalon is also filled with functional and high-end amenities. A futuristic Dashboard with cool illumination, Heated and Ventilated Perforated Leather Front Seats, Power Moonroof, Power Rear Sunshade, Wood Grain styled accents, Navigation and Premium Audio that includes Voice-activated Touch-Screen DVD with integrated Back-Up Camera, Bluetooth music streaming, JBL Synthesis sound system and iPod Connectivity for the audiophile and Hands-Free Phone Capability make the Avalon shine in its segment. Of special note, Puddle Lights are a subtle touch of class for Avalon. Upon approach the lights illuminate the ground to the side of the car for added security and serve as a “heads-up” for anything in your path. To some it may be a purely cosmetic feature, but it came in handy as I avoided a potentially disastrous misstep on an uneven walk way. It’s the little touches that go a long way.
The spacious cabin is a welcomed treat in the Avalon. A hidden gem of the Avalon is the reclining backseats that offer comfort and more than ample head and leg room. Room is plentiful in the Avalon for the 5 adults that it seats.
The Avalon is not only eye appealing, it also holds its own on the open road. A 3.5L 268HP, 6 Speed Transmission allows this sedan to get it cruise on. Driving on the 101 was where the Avalon really showed its driving personality. The Avalon has a smooth and comfortable ride and offers a quiet cabin for the ultimate driving experience. Surprisingly, the Avalon was quite agile for a full-sized sedan. In the city, maneuvering in and out of tight parking spots and situations was a breeze.
