Toyota Avalon

The 2010 Toyota Avalon is not significantly different from the 2009 model. The same 3.5 L V-6 engine has been maintained in the newest version, producing 268 hp. Despite the different types of Avalon’s, this is the only engine available for all trims. The engine has a dual overhead cam, 24-valve 6-cylinder engine with variable valve timing. This makes the engine considerably more responsive, while at the same time not hurting the fuel economy. Torque peaks at about 4700 rpm with maximum horsepower output over 6000 rpm. Basically what this means is that the new 2010 Toyota Avalon is just as powerful as and even more efficient than previous versions. The high quality of the engine means that it will soon be a good used Toyota as well, and that is definitely something to think about in terms of resale value.

The Avalon is one of many classic Toyota cars that are easy to drive. While its specifications are generally no different than competing models like the Nissan Maxima and the Honda Accord, what really sets the Avalon apart from the competition is its fuel economy. With 30 km per gallon in the city and close to 45 km per gallon on the highway, this vehicle is one of the most fuel efficient sedans on the market. Because of this, it is rated as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle. Combined with its large fuel tank, the Avalon can travel 680 km between refills.

Along with its efficiency, the Toyota Avalon has quite a bit of power. It can reach speeds of 96 km per hour, or 60 miles per hour, in just 6.4 seconds. This beats every car in its class except for the Nissan Maxima which can reach the same speed in only 5.9 seconds. Most of the time consumers who are looking for cars in this class are not specifically going for absolute acceleration; rather they are looking for attributes like cabin space and comfort. It could be said that the Toyota Avalon drives like a Lexus in terms of handling and comfort. If you are a driver who enjoys comfortable rides you will enjoy driving an Avalon.

The Toyota Avalon also comes with safety features such as foot control, an anti-skid system, ABS, and airbags at the front and sides. The vehicle also boasts keyless entry and engine startup as well as temperature controlled front seats. Come to Leggat Auto Group to drive a Toyota Avalon today.
