2014 Toyota Avalon
2014 Toyota Avalon

New for 2014

The 2014 Toyota Avalon continues largely unchanged after a 2013-model-year redesign, the 2014 Toyota Avalon adds a rearview camera as standard equipment on the XLE trim, and the blind-spot monitoring has been made optional for the XLE Touring and XLE Touring Hybrid, allowing prices to be dropped slightly on those trim levels.

Vehicle Overview

The Toyota Avalon is a full-size sedan that fits above the Camry. Powered by a V-6 or hybrid I-4, the Avalon sits at the top of the lineup as the automaker’s largest car.

Summary

The standard 2014 Toyota Avalon is powered by a 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 248 lb-ft of torque, with a six-speed automatic that powers the front wheels. A hybrid model is available that pairs a 2.5-liter I-4/electric motor combination with a CVT. EPA estimates are 21/31 mpg city/highway for the V-6, and 40/39 mpg for the hybrid I-4. The available Technology Package adds several new safety features including a dynamic radar cruise control and pre-collision system. The 2014 Toyota Avalon received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and earned a rating of good for four categories of IIHS testing (the highest-possible rating is good).

What We Think

The 2014 Toyota Avalon received a major redesign for 2013, and in a review of that car we said, “It's entertaining to throw around this 16.2-foot-long car on a mountain road; body roll is well controlled despite a suspension that's hardly state of the art. Losing 120 pounds has helped the Avalon. Ride quality - -another eye-opener -- is happily on the firm side. Sitting in the driver's seat of a Limited model, looking at the three attractive display screens and tri-color dashboard, and holding the nice steering wheel, we found the word ‘Toyota’ falling from our consciousness.”
In an Editor’s Notebook review of a 2013 Toyota Avalon XLE Touring we noted, “one thing that carries over from the old car that didn't really need improvement is the 3.5-liter V-6, which was then and continues to be smooth, powerful, and responsive . . . a sport mode perks up the throttle, transmission, and suspension responses, and there are even shift paddles on the steering wheel.”
