2016 Avalon Research and Review
If you want a full-size sedan that's been labeled "as comfortable as a pillow-top bed," Avalon is your guy. The Car Connection's 2016 Toyota Avalon review boasted about the sedan's comfort several times, along with its luxury features and quiet ride.
Variety is another key attribute of the sedan, which is available with an ample selection of trim levels, including: the XLE, new-this-year XLE Plus, XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited, as well as the new Avalon Hybrid XLE Plus and returning hybrid XLE Premium and Limited.
As far as the luxury features lauded by The Car Connection, we'll start at the base end of the trim lineup, where you'll find standard dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, Bluetooth, satellite radio, heated front seats, keyless ignition/entry and a rearview camera. Above this, the 2016 Toyota Avalon in Grapevine gains more and more standard amenities the farther up the trim line you go. Notable appointments on high-end models include safety tech like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, navigation with smartphone integration and heated rear seats, which ensure backseat passengers enjoy the same level of pampering as those up front.
New this year, Avalon shoppers in Dallas will find a larger screen on the standard Entune audio display, as well as new standard features on the Avalon XLE Premium, including Entune apps and Qi wireless smartphone charging. Also, the exterior of the sedan receives a redesigned lower grille, new lower turn signals that replace the foglights and updated taillights, changes that give the car a more premium appearance.
When you come test drive a 2016 Toyota Avalon in the Dallas area, you'll also have a chance to try out the car's new suspension tunings. Two are available, including one that emphasizes more refined performance for touring (XLE through Limited trims) and one that emphasizes a more dynamic driving feel (Touring trims).
