Exterior and Interior Avalon Features

Arguably the best looking car in its class, the Avalon offers something that will attract everyone's eye. For 2021, Toyota introduced the XSE Nightshade trim, taking the XSE and turning off the lights with an all-black exterior appearance. From the front, the Avalon stares with aggressive narrow headlights surrounding a sporty grille with chrome or black accents. Walking around to the side, you'll see a variety of different wheels, 18-inch grey or chrome alloy, or 19-inch black-painted alloy. You'll also notice Avalon's muscular body. As you step inside, you're greeted with tons of space in the front and rear seats, SofTex leather upholstery, state-of-the-art technology, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

What Safety Features Does the Avalon offer?

Toyota takes occupant safety very seriously which is why they offer a ton of standard safety features across the whole Avalon lineup. Other brands only offer similar safety features at an extra cost. These standard safety features are under Toyota Safety Sense Plus and include blind-spot monitoring with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, full-speed adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. Another safety feature available on the Limited and Touring trims is intelligent clearance sonar which helps maneuver tight spots and prevent collisions by automatically applying the brakes.
