Muscat: Toyota Avalon is a wonderful statement of luxury. Right from its design to comfort, every aspect in the Avalon enhances each moment, offering a remarkable feeling on every journey.
The Avalon truly belongs in a league of its own. The bold front grille, 17-inch alloy wheels and stylish HID headlights stand out on any road. Step inside and you are immediately surrounded by luxurious touches like a beautiful and ergonomic dashboard along with ventilated leather-trimmed seats.
Avalon’s exterior lighting complements the design lines. The industry-first Quadrabeam headlight cluster utilises a sleek and compact double-eye PES headlight design with two square glass condenser lenses that have been adapted for the low beams and offer outstanding lighting performance. A stronger, more expressive front-fascia design with larger grille opening creates an aggressive appearance. The Avalon’s interior elaborates on the exterior’s elegant, refined theme to create a premium interior experience that combines high technology and craftsmanship with an artistic level of sculpted surfaces. The driver is engaged by an Optitron-type Combination Meter, which produces a sharp, high-quality display and 3.5-inch Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) Colour Multi-Information Display. Furthermore, the Avalon’s interior surfaces are finished in premium materials such as soft-touch materials for the dash panel, unique smoke chrome trim surrounding the centre panel, and high-quality glossy panel trim around the shifter. All of this attention to detail to touch surfaces and subtle enhancements to texture and visual appeal are aimed at elevating the overall interior experience for driver and passengers.
The Avalon’s seats are available as power adjustable for the driver’s seat and front passenger seat. The driver’s seat incorporates a seat-cushion length extender; a four-way lumbar support is built into the driver’s seat and a two-way lumbar support for the passenger. An electric seat heater and seat ventilation system have been adopted to help enhance driver and front passenger seat comfort.
The Avalon utilises a 3.5-litre, six-cylinder v6 engine that features dual VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence) to help offer superior power and efficiency by optimising the intake and exhaust valve timings to increase engine performance across the entire range. The Avalon features a 6-speed multimode automatic transmission that has been optimised for improved fuel economy and performance. Steering-wheel-mounted Paddle Shifters help activate fast and responsive shifts while keeping both hands on the wheel. The Avalon offers three drive modes: Eco, Normal & Sport.
As one would expect with the Toyota’s flagship sedan, Avalon offers a long list of convenient, user-friendly technologies. It has a 7-inch navigation system with a DVD player and 11 JBL speakers. It also has Bluetooth compatibility, rear camera display and a USB port.
The smart key’s transmitter allows the engine to be started with the push of a button. The Avalon is equipped with a power rear sunshade that blocks direct sunrays for the rear passengers; the shade adopts an auto-down function when shifting into reverse. A lighter weight power sunroof design has been adopted to help reduce vehicle weight.
Avalon has 10 SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) Airbags providing enhanced safety. It also features Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).
