"To its menu, Avalon mixes a bevy of Toyota-firsts such as standard Apple CarPlay and Dynamic Auxiliary Turn Signals, available authentic Yamaha wood and aluminum cabin accents, and Engine Sound Enhancement". All trims get Eco, Normal, and Sport modes, and Touring trims also get a Sport+ setting. Moreover, the Toyota Safety Sense P pack adds the like of pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, full-speed range radar cruise control, lane departure alert, automatic high beams and blind spot monitor.

The Avalon will continue to be built at Toyota's Georgetown, Kentucky, plant and will arrive at dealerships late this spring.
