There are cars and there are cars, and this new 2017 Avalon Hybrid is a really good car in every respect. Perfect five-star safety rating and 40 mpg on highway driving, 39 mpg in the city. The Avalon price is listed at $43,630, fully loaded with special features.
This is such an elegant car with “Parisian night pearl/black” paint.
The design is sleek and the interior is equally impressive with all the bells and whistles of radio, navigation, electronics and the new Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging system.
This Avalon takes safety to another level. Equipped with 10 airbags, blind-spot monitoring, Star Safety system and whiplash injury-lessening seats. Other safety features include the new Toyota safety-sense pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure alert with steering assist.
The 2017 Avalon features a newly designed exterior with a bold front grille, LED headlights and taillights, and daytime running lights.
The seats are spacious, with 10-way power-heated front driver’s seating with lumbar support and eight- way passenger seating. The rear seats are also heated
The Synergy hybrid drive system gives two choices of Eco or Sport. Both are fast, but the sport choice gives an extra boost of energy that is amazing. The Avalon comes with power-assisted four-wheel disk brakes.
The comfort, style, ease of handling, high performance and excellent fuel economy make this hybrid very special. Add in the many high-tech features and this is a very modern high-performance purchase with an eight-year 100,000-mile warranty on the hybrid components.
Final assembly of this vehicle is in Georgetown, Ky. Born and made in the U.S.A.
