The Avalon, Toyota's successful foray into the luxury sedan market, is a great option for drivers in South Brunswick, Freehold, Lawrence, and the surrounding New Jersey communities. Why? Because it offers an ideal combination of style, performance, and safety-everything that you could need in a car!

Our team here at Dayton Toyota wrote this 2018 Toyota Avalon vehicle review for you. We really hope that you learn a lot. And, as always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Elegant Style: 2018 Avalon

Right off the bat, you can see that this 2018 Toyota sedan has a flair for style. It's available in a multitude of exterior paint jobs, including Blizzard, Magnetic Gray, Celestial Silver, Ooh La La Rouge, Crème Brulee, Sizzling Crimson, Midnight Black, Parisian Night, and Cosmic Gray. We could have some of these in stock.

Once you step foot into the cabin, things get even more sumptuous. For example, leather-trimmed seats and soft-touch materials are standard, as is the French stitching that binds it all together. Premium front seats with heating and cooling functions will keep you warm throughout those cold New Jersey winters and cool during those scorching New Jersey summers. Plus, ambient lighting will set the mood, whichever mood that is.

Capable Performance: Toyota Avalon

Choose the Avalon's 3.5L V6 engine, and you're choosing 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque.

One thing you're not choosing, however, is an especially expensive bill at the gas pump. This engine is still able to provide an EPA-estimated 31 MPG on the highway,1 which is good enough for an ultra-low-emission vehicle (ULEV) certification. That number is thanks in part to the sedan's custom aerodynamic design.

What other performance features are we excited about? A fully independent suspension (with stabilizer bar) will make your ride as smooth as possible, even when the road isn't. Dual steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters will give you all the thrill of a manual transmission while maintaining the efficiency of an automatic. And Sport mode will boost throttle response so you can impress your date…or your mother.

Intelligent Safety Systems to Protect Your Family

Last, but certainly not least, there's the topic of safety. In fact, we saved safety for the end because it's the most important thing-we saved the best for last. This is your life that we're dealing with, after all.

The 2018 Toyota Avalon comes with a variety of standard and available high-tech safety systems, including:

  • Ten airbags
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear-Cross Traffic Alert
  • Whiplash injury lessening seats

There's also the standard Star Safety System™, which is basically a suite of six additional safety systems: Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Smart Stop Technology, etc. So cool!
