The Toyota Avalon is unmistakably one of the most significant full-size sedans to have hit the market. The Avalon has stayed true to Toyota’s advocacy towards reliability, safety, and dependability over the years. Contrary to belief, full-size sedans, in most cases, are far more beneficial than SUVs. They offer plenty of space for passengers, offer a significant amount of cargo space, and manage to look dashing in the process. But just like any other form of evolution, the automotive market has evolved with more demand for SUVs nowadays. And with that in mind, the Avalon will have its last run in its 2022 avatar with a fitting farewell to an iconic vehicle.
The 2022 Avalon will be available in six configurations, namely XLE, XLE Hybrid, XSE Hybrid Nightshade, Touring, Limited, and Limited Hybrid. The 2022 Avalon receives the following updates - discontinuation of the previously optional all-wheel-drive system and the TRD model, the addition of a new rear-seat reminder feature to all the trims, and updated driver-assistance features with a more advanced camera - and radar-based avoidance systems.

While the base 3.5-liter V-6 engine offers enough power to take you places without breaking a sweat, Toyota also offers a hybrid 2.5-liter Four-Cylinder powertrain coupled with two electric motors to produce 215-horsepower, hence offering an environment-friendly alternative. The eight-speed automatic transmission offered in the gasoline variant offers quick shifts and an involving experience for the driver. On the other hand, the ECVT (Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission) offered in the Hybrid variant delivers a seamless and comfortable drive.
On the inside, the 2022 Avalon offers plenty of space for occupants in both rows. The SofTex upholstery in the base trim is comfortable and of high quality. It also comes with heated front seats. The higher trims, on the other hand, come with premium leather upholstery along with heated and ventilated front seats. Coming to the features, the Avalon is equipped with a nine-inch touchscreen display, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi connect, an eight-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Bluetooth connectivity, SiriusXM® with a 3-month Platinum Plan trial subscription, and four USB charging ports. Spending some extra dough will get you features like a 14-speaker JBL® premium audio system and Destination Assist System, to name a few.
An impressive list of safety features come standard on all the 2022 Avalon trims, including Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA).
