With the top-of-the-line 2016 Toyota Avalon Limited you get equipment from the Touring trim in addition to xenon headlights, auto-dimming side mirrors with puddle lamps, automatic wipers, ambient cabin lighting, tri-zone automatic climate control, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a 10-way power adjustable driver seat, eight-way power adjustable front passenger seat, heated rear seats, a rear power sunshade, Safety Connect and an 11-speaker JBL premium sound system.
The Toyota Avalon Limited also offers a Toyota Safety Sense package, which includes adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning system, lane-keeping assist, frontal collision warning, automatic pre-collision braking, and automatic high-beam headlight control.
The 2016 Toyota Avalon’s V6 engine is smooth and powerful and should provide more than enough punch to please most drivers. Furthermore, that performance is delivered in a very quiet, unruffled manner, which adds to the Toyota’s appeal as an effortless open highway cruiser. The Avalon exhibits a slight amount of body roll through corners, but overall it is surprisingly composed when the road gets twisty.
At its core, the Toyota Avalon provides an impressive blend of comfort, performance, and efficiency. It’s also just plain easy to drive. The ride quality is firmer than that of Avalons of old, though, so if you’re coming out of an older Avalon, make sure you give this new car a thorough test-drive.
