The new 2018 Toyota Avalon represents the special type of the luxury sedan made to be driven with the hybrid engine, which is not usual in this class. We expect to see smaller cars with the electric engine, but not such big and massive as Avalon is. However, knowing how much Toyota gave to the market of the hybrid engines, it is not strange to see many experiments in that field in the future. Avalon, on the other hand, is not an experiment and its engine and driving possibilities are much over the normal and expected in this class.
If you know the old Avalon, you may not be surprised with the new design of 2018 Toyota Avalon, because there are no many changes from the last model. You may notice new lights and front grille but even that have same design solution as the last model. There is a recognizable trapezoidal front grille with the chromatic grids, rounded with chrome lines, with rounded hood and incorporated front lights. The rear end is also simple, with the cubic truck door, thin rear lights and a small line on the truck door. Besides the line which starts from the front end and goes all over the doors, there are no other details which are worth of mentioning.
If you are a fan of futuristic but still elegant cabin designs, you will be very satisfied with the dashboard in new 2018 Toyota Avalon. It has an interesting shape of the stretched letter V, with the large touchscreen in the middle and perfectly planned button layout. The leather covers the steering wheel and the seats with the optional different colors. The manufacturer offers many high-tech devices, like Bluetooth, stereo system, radio, USB/aux input, adaptive cruise control and navigation system. The cabin is roomy enough for five adult persons.
As we said, the most interesting in 2018 Toyota Avalon should be a hybrid engine in combination with the strong and powerful petrol one. It is an electric engine paired with the 2.5-liter V6 petrol one, with 200 horsepower of strength. The manufacturer decided to offer CVT transmission with this engine. In case you stay without the gas, you will be able to drive a little only on electric power with speed of 20 mph to the next gas station. If you are not a hybrid engines fan, you can choose a classic 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine with 268 horsepower and six-speed automatic transmission.
