The Toyota Avalon is hardly the nameplate that pundits were expecting to impress at April’s New York International Auto Show which is what made the Avalon’s debut something special. Toyota has taken a relatively pedestrian mid-size sedan and completely turned it on its head by providing youthful styling that makes the Avalon look like fun to drive.
As the product of North American design and engineering, this new Avalon looks to capture the hearts and minds of young drivers all across the US. In fact this midsize sedan will be built in Georgetown Kentucky which means that prices for this stylish, bold, and somewhat sporty Avalon will remain affordable.
According to AutoBlog.com the Avalon will also feature a variety of additions that will make it sportier to drive such as an enhanced throttle response and weighted steering to provide better feel. Paddle shifters bring the sporty race styling full circle and Toyota has already confirmed that there will be a six cylinder offering available.
