When talking about full-size sedans and SUVs, both vehicles are designed to offer more space. While SUVs benefit from improved cargo space, it is the full-size sedan that flaunts both boot space as well as ample passenger room. For almost three decades, the Avalon has made a significant mark in the industry. But with a growing SUV segment on the realm, brands are rethinking their product portfolio. Taking that into consideration, the 2022 model year of the Avalon will mark an end to the successful run of the Avalon.
For the 2022 model year, Avalon gets a brief list of updates that include the addition of a new rear-seat reminder feature to all the trims, updated driver-assistance features with more advanced camera- and radar-based avoidance systems, discontinuation of the previously optional all-wheel-drive system, and discontinuation of the TRD model. The 2022 Avalon will be available in six trims, namely XLE, XLE Hybrid, XSE Hybrid Nightshade, Touring, Limited, and Limited Hybrid. Planning to purchase the 2022 Toyota Avalon before its gone?

The base 3.5-liter V-6 engine powering the Avalon produces 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Other than that, the Avalon can also be spec’d out with a hybrid 2.5-liter Four-Cylinder powertrain coupled with two electric motors that combine to produce 215 horsepower. The all-gasoline powertrain comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the Hybrid version’s ECVT (Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission) does all the job of power distribution.
The 2022 Avalon is a full-size sedan and the space it offers does justice to its length. The cabin is spacious and offers plenty of room in both rows. The seats are covered with SofTex upholstery in the base trims along with heated front seats while premium leather upholstery is exclusive to the higher trims, along with heated and ventilated front seats. Features are extensive, with a nine-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi connect, an eight-speaker sound system, SiriusXM® with 3-month Platinum Plan trial subscription, and four USB charging ports, to name some of the many features that are offered as standard across all the trims. Premium features like a 14-speaker JBL premium audio system and Destination Assist System are offered in the top-end trims.
