Built on a foundation of quality, durability and reliability, the Toyota brand is already a premier automaker across the globe with best-selling models like the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Camry. Toyota has taken that reputation for elite-level quality to another level with the addition of the luxurious Toyota Avalon platform and that platform has become even more impressive with the unveiling of the 2016 Toyota Avalon near Fort Wayne, IN. Taking a new approach to performance and improving the large sedan’s eye-catching style, the refreshed Toyota Avalon is expected to be released in the fall of 2015.
The first Toyota model to be exclusively designed, engineered and assembled in North America, the Toyota Avalon possesses a sleek design with stunning lines, refined driving dynamics and innovative features. New for the 2016 model year, the Toyota Avalon will add a new front end design, that is larger and more aggressive than its predecessor and is highlighted by available LED lighting systems that include headlights and daytime running lights. LED taillights give the back end of the Toyota luxury model a more athletic appearance as well. An additional major enhancement for the new Avalon is the availability of two suspension systems which will deliver a more dynamic driving experience.
A Luxurious Interior Combines with a Sleek, Sporty Style
A new sleek, sporty style is complemented well by a lavish, luxurious interior. Leather-trimmed and heated front seats are a standard level of exclusive luxury that is hard to match and plush, premium materials inundate the spacious, modern cabin of the 2016 Toyota Avalon. A contemporary, high-end interior design employs touch-based dash controls, standard woodgrain accents and a standard central touchscreen interface to control the Toyota Entune infotainment system. In addition to an opulent, spacious cabin, the 2016 Toyota Avalon possesses a cavernous 16 cubic-foot trunk for your cargo.
