2017 Toyota Avalon Review
When choosing a midsize sedan for the Danvers, Peabody, and Salem areas, we know that drivers want plenty of safety and comfort. However, shouldn't you have more? Shouldn't you have extra power and technology on your side, too?
The 2017 Toyota Avalon isn't quite a luxury vehicle. Nevertheless, with its beefy engine and added amenities, it feels decidedly indulgent. In this review, the Ira Toyota of Danvers team is going to show you everything the Toyota Avalon has to offer.
2017 Toyota Avalon Interior
Based on its size alone, the 2017 Toyota Avalon is fairly similar to other cars in its class. In total, it has 103.6 ft3 of space to offer passengers, with an additional 16 ft3 in its trunk. However, once you dig into its amenities, you start to notice the differences.
Conveniences are abounding in this sedan. From the moment you sit down in your 8-way power adjustable seat, which has been trimmed completely in leather, several different technologies will be right at your fingertips.
Namely, you'll have access to Entune™ Audio Plus with Connected Navigation. Entune™ is a sizable suite. It comes with features like the 7-inch touchscreen and 8 speakers. However, it also features GPS direction, as well as traffic and weather updates.
Toyota Avalon: Added Safety Features
There's no doubt that the 2017 Toyota Avalon is an enduring vehicle. It has been built with various reinforcements, including front and rear crumple zones, side-impact door beams, and an energy-absorbing collapsible steering column. All these fortifications allow the sedan to rebuff collision forces.
However, technology really seems to take the cake in this car. The 2017 Avalon features both the Star Safety System™, which features stability and traction controls, as well as Toyota Safety Sense™-P (TSS-P). TSS-P is a smart suite filled with features that can both predict and prevent accidents from occurring.
It's thanks to all these features that the 2017 Avalon earns two major safety awards. It received both a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, as well as a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
2017 Toyota Avalon Performance Specs
If amenities and safety seem like robust packages, then you'll be pleased with what's under the hood of the 2017 Toyota Avalon. This sedan comes with a 3.5L V6 engine capable of producing 268 HP and 248 lb-ft of torque.
To keep gear shifts smooth and efficient, a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence has also been added. Pair this with the standard ECO mode, and the Avalon can maintain 30 highway/21 city MPG.1
