The 2013 Avalon strikes back at its competition with bold styling and a host of new luxury and technology features. The Avalon is the largest sedan that Toyota makes under its own nameplate, although it’s not been the most successful in terms of sales volume. Toyota hopes to change all that, and also change perceptions about who the Avalon is really aimed at. For starters, let’s take a look at the front of the car – if it looks familiar, that’s because the headlights and grille are reminiscent of the 2012 Camry, but look closer. Notice that there’s an LED accent surrounding each of the projectors. Also you’ll see a large lower grille that emphasizes the 2013 Avalon’s new sporting nature.
Looking around the vehicle, you’ll notice several things about its dimensions. The front and rear overhangs have been greatly reduced, and so have the visual gaps between the tires and the fender wells (not quite a “slammed” stance, but it’s a step in the right direction, so let’s call it “semiflush”), which is certainly a nice thing to see automakers paying attention to, especially in this segment. Inside the Avalon, occupants will be surrounded by a very premium environment highlighted by stitched leather on the dash, warm wood accents, and a host of other luxurious features, like available heated and cooled front seats and the Toyota Entune system.
Pricing and availability have not yet been announced, so stay with us and we’ll post that information as soon as it becomes available.
