Style & Luxury for the ultimate ride
The 2017 Avalon is called Toyota’s premium vehicle for a reason. Combining an elegant style with all the features of a luxury vehicle the Avalon is a classic touring style sedan built for both driver and passenger comfort while coming equipped with all the latest driver assist technology.
The Avalon’s exterior profile is designed with sculpted lines and powerful curves that create a stunning profile that is completed with a bold attention-grabbing grille and stylish available LED lights that wrap around the hood and sides.
A chrome tipped duel exhaust system means you leave an impression even when you are leaving the parking lot.
“One of the big features of the Avalon is the quietness of the ride. That because of the acoustically laminated windshield and the driver’s side and passenger side windows which eliminate ambient noise,” explained Hallmark Toyota General Manager, Chris Lee. “One of the nice features of this car is that it has paddle shifters so even though it’s a luxury car it has a sporty feel to it. You can determine when you want the transmission to change.”
The quiet ride is enhanced by a remarkable independent suspension system that provides smooth travel even on older roads that have suffered the test of time.
Available in two trim levels – the Touring and Limited editions – the real luxury is apparent when you slide into the driver’s seat and experience all the the Avalon has to offer.
Standard leather seats will be the first thing you notice when you get behind the wheel.
The seats can be heated during the winter months and cooled down through ventilation during the summer months and a three-zone automatic climate control system allows for a custom level of comfort for those both in the front and rear seats.
Along with an audio and navigation display screen on the main console there is a QI wireless charging station so you can charge your phone while you drive and never be without one of your most important methods of communication. A keyless entry and starting system allows you get in the vehicle and drive without fumbling for a set of keys.
The impressive technology also extends to many safety features built into the Avalon’s design.
A standard dynamic cruise control system allows you to set the number of car lengths between you and the vehicle ahead and will automatically slow the car down when you get too close.
Lane departure alert with steering assist will provide a warning if you stray from your lane.
With the pedestrian detect system the vehicle acts as a separate set of eyes and warns if a person is entering your path.
While comfort and luxury is the main experience of driving an Avalon, the vehicle didn’t move away from performance.
Under the hood a 268 HP 3.6 L V6 engine provides a rush of power while maintaining a high degree of fuel efficiency and low vehicle emissions.
Visit Hallmark Toyota on the East Line at Highway 9, just east of Orangeville for a better look and to experience the 2017 Avalon.
