Updated for the new model year, the 2016 Toyota Avalon sports revised styling and other notable enhancements. The full-size sedan now features a new front grille and turn signals and a sleek profile, while the Touring model also gets an upgraded grille, LED headlamps and daytime running lights, a sporty suspension and dark gray alloy wheels. Aside from these changes, the Avalon offers a new XLE Plus trim on the standard Avalon and Avalon Hybrid, which offers a whirlwind of incredible technologies. Take a look at our 2016 Toyota Avalon review below to find out further info about the new trim and its incredible benefits.
The all-new XLE Plus trim available on the regular Avalon and Avalon Hybrid is an excellent addition. The new trim serves as an upgrade on the standard 2016 Toyota Avalon in Evansville and the base model on the Avalon Hybrid. Standard Entune Audio Plus is featured on the latest trim, along with a 7-inch screen and Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link. Also offered on XLE models, Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link utilizes a person's smartphone in order to provide navigation inside the vehicle. Due to this innovative feature, drivers can more easily navigate to their intended destination without distractions. In addition to the new trim option, the full-size sedan also offers Qi wireless charging on the XLE Premium, 17-inch chrome wheels on the hybrid and 18-inch chrome wheels on the standard Avalon. Buyers can also choose to add the Toyota Safety Sense-P system to the vehicle, which features Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High Beam Headlights, Lane Departure Alert and a Pre-Collision System.
Powering the standard 2016 Toyota Avalon in Evansville is a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine. Outputting 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, the engine is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. With this setup, the Avalon can deliver an EPA-estimated 24 mpg combined, 21 city and 31 highway. The car can also go from 0-60 mph in less than seven seconds, which is an outstanding time for its class. The Avalon Hybrid ditches the V6 in favor of a 2.5L Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder and an electric motor that work in unison to produce 200 horsepower. This model also produces first-class fuel efficiency, saving buyers money on gas.
