Toyota is the number-one car manufacturer. There is no doubt that the cars the company manufactures boast quality and economy. The best part is that Toyota vehicles are reliable and require little maintenance. The company has introduced the latest addition to their fleet: the 2015 Toyota Avalon.

This car boasts a powerful engine, superb gas mileage and a luxurious interior. Each and every aspect of this sedan has been designed with precision. The previous Avalon models took the market by storm. The company is hoping to gain the same response as they have made significant improvements to the 2015 model. Let’s look at what Toyota is offering in the 2015 Avalon:

Engine Specifications

Typically, Toyota introduces various engine variants across different trims. But in the case of the 2015 Avalon the company has decided to stick with a single variant. The engine that powers the 2015 Avalon is a V-type with six cylinders. The capacity if this engine is 3.5 liters. It is evident that this engine will generate immense power. Even though this engine has a fairly large capacity, the technology that Toyota has used allows it to provide an excellent gas mileage as well.

Engine Performance

The 2015 Avalon is a luxury sedan with a powerful engine. The standard engine variant provides great gas mileage and power. This engine generates an incredible 268 horses and 248 pounds of torque per feet. For a mid-sized sedan, this is quite a lot of power. On the other hand, the gas mileage makes it fit to be a daily driver. If you are driving within city limits, you can get as much as 21 miles to a gallon. Highway driving provides a significantly better gas mileage. You can get as much as 31 miles to each gallon. With a combined mileage of 25 miles per gallon, it is one of the most economical cars.

Transmission Options

Similar to the engine, there is a uniform transmission variant across all trims of the 2015 Avalon. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. This transmission is equipped with ECT-I technology. The model code of this transmission is U 660E. The drivetrain is also the same across all variants of the 2015 Avalon. These vehicles are all front-wheel drives. This makes it easier for the driver to handle the car in almost every driving condition.

Interior Design

The first thing you will notice about the 2015 Avalon is its interior. Not only is it stylish, but it is rather comfortable as well. Each and every aspect of the interior has been designed to provide luxury and comfort. The most common issue with mid-sized sedans is legroom for rear passengers.

But Toyota has made sure there is plenty of legroom in the front and rear. This car can easily seat up to 5 passengers. The steering wheel offers navigation controls to access most features in the car. You can turn up the volume and even answer your calls using the steering wheel controls. Overall the Avalon’s interior boasts an elegant appearance.

Exterior Styling

Toyota has made significant changes to the appearance of the 2015 Avalon. It retains some of the design accents from the previous model. The headlight appearance and the design of the rear lights have been changed. All in all, the 2015 Avalon looks amazing and is a pleasure to drive.

The best thing about buying a Toyota is that you can rely on the car. The 2015 Avalon is the perfect family vehicle. It is the perfect combination of luxury, power and economy.
