A Stand-Out Lineup
From simplicity to luxury, the Toyota Avalon shows off a 2017 lineup with five stand-out trims – the XLE, XLE Plus, XLE Premium, Touring and Limited. Here’s a peek at three of the most exciting trims:

The XLE starts out the Avalon’s 2017 lineup, featuring all of the basics. But what you’ll really like about this trim is that it also comes with some upscale content to enrich the experience. Some of these items include:

Dual-zone automatic climate control
Leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel
Leather upholstery
Power and Heated front seats
Keyless entry and ignition
Rearview camera

What also stands out in the Avalon’s XLE trim is its tech list that features:

Toyota’s Entune interface with 7” touchscreen and voice controls
8-speaker audio system
Bluetooth connectivity

If you like a sedan with some sporty zest, the 2017 Toyota Avalon’s Touring trim is right up your alley, sporting larger 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, sport-tuned suspension and unique interior trim.

Looking for the Avalon trim that will really turn heads? Then check out the Limited. Jam-packed with all of the musts and wants, the Limited boasts a truly impressive content list that includes:

Auto-dimming side mirrors
Xenon headlights

An Upscale Interior
Quality, ease of use and roominess are key elements that make up the interior of the 2017 Toyota Avalon. It’s adorned throughout with soft-touch leather surfaces and tasteful styling touches. All materials are of high-quality, too, which further enhance its upscale ambiance. Space is also excellent with more than enough room for five passengers in both front and rear. Fitting a child’s seat is also easy due to the availability of space, making installation and getting our child in and out a simple task instead of a frustrating one.

Strong Utility
Another area in which the 2017 Avalon shines is in storage. With a trunk that offers 16 cubic feet of space, the Avalon makes traveling easy. Its wide opening and low lift-over height are also worth noting because they make loading and unloading a synch. Increasing storage capacity is the Avalon’s split-folding rear seats that allow for long cargo items to be stored with ease. Storage inside the Avalon is generous, too, with plenty of cargo cubbies and a large center console for personal items. The front section of the center console also acts as an “eBin”, which allows power cords to pass through a sliding pane for two cell phones and auxiliary and USB connections.
