Toyota Avalon Review for 2016 Model Year

One of the nation's most popular full-size sedans returns this year with a new trim option for shoppers! The 2016 Toyota Avalon in Omaha, Nebraska, can now be had in an XLE Plus grade, which is offered as a gas-only and hybrid model. The all-new XLE Plus joins a long line of additional trim levels that carryover from last year, including: Avalon XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited, as well as Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium and Limited.

In addition to offering a new trim level, the Avalon also gains an updated lower grille, revised taillights and new lower front turn signals in place of the previous foglights. Furthermore, 2016 Toyota Avalon reviews have been talking a lot about the car's new suspension tunings. That's right: tunings. For the first time, there are two suspension options for shoppers. On XLE through Limited trims, the suspension has been engineered to offer a smooth, refined ride, while the suspension tuning on Touring trims provides more responsive and dynamic performance.

Avalon continues to offer the same 268-horsepower V6 engine as last year on gas-only models. It's paired with a shift-capable six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. EPA estimates for the powertrain rank in at 24 mpg combined (21 city/31 highway). If you're purchasing a 2016 Toyota Avalon in Omaha and decide to pick up the hybrid, you'll receive a more efficient powertrain setup that includes a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, electric motor and battery. According to EPA estimates, the hybrid yields an impressive 40 mpg combined (40 city/39 highway), which is excellent for a large sedan.

Avalon also continues to offer excellent safety features, too. In addition to all the basic necessities, technologies like rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning and a frontal pre-collision system are available on select trim levels.
