Thanks to its serene and upscale interior, wide array of optional features, voluptuous trunk, adequate front and rear accommodations, and an above-average fuel economy, the new 2018 Toyota Avalon is perhaps one of the best full-size sedans on the market. It also offers a perfect combination of a solid performance, overall refinement, and comfort. The 2018 Avalon release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2018, at least according to preliminary industry reports.
If you’re shopping for a full-size sedan, you’re probably looking for a vehicle that, among other things, offers a controlled ride quality, serene ride, a spacious cabin, and a long list of creature comforts. Apparently, those qualities are some of the hallmarks that define the new 2018 Toyota Avalon.
What about the 2018 Toyota Avalon interior? Well, it comes with plenty of comfortable features, latest technologies, and soft-touch materials. All of these features are stuffed in a vast, airy cabin that affords is occupants lots of interior space both at the rear and at the front. The seats well-bolstered and provide ample comfort and lateral support. The result of this is the Avalon is extremely comfortable even for long distance cruising. Additionally, there’s also soft-touch plastic and Lexus-like wood trimmings.
Unlike in the previous model, the new model doesn’t transmit road, tire, and wind noise to the cabin. In fact, the noise is none-existent. Some of the convenient features available include a power rear sunshade, automatic tri-zone climate control, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and adaptive cruise control.
Although the Avalon is an undoubtedly a standout in its segment, there are other well-equipped models in the segment that offer paralleled performance. Such rivals include the Chrysler 300, the Hyundai Azera, 2018 Kia Cadenza, Nissan Maxima, and the Chevrolet Impala 2018.
