Overview

What's New
For 2007, the GPS-linked navigation system is now optional in the Avalon Touring trim level, and all models get a tire-pressure-monitoring system as standard equipment.

Overview
When the Avalon first went on sale in 1994, it was essentially a plus-size Camry, a car intended to bring Toyota levels of reliability and refinement to traditional large-car buyers. A 2005 redesign brought about a complete metamorphosis, with sleeker styling, a new wood-trimmed interior, and available features rarely found on cars in the non-premium segment such as keyless ignition and an acoustic-damping windshield that cut wind noise. As a result, the Avalon wasn't just a fullsize Camry variant anymore-it was truly the flagship of Toyota's car lineup.

The 2007 Avalon is sold in four trim levels: XL, Touring, XLS, and Limited; all are powered by a 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 that drives the front wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes power windows/locks/mirrors; driver's seat, side, and side curtain air bags; a driver's knee air bag; anti-lock brakes; and dual-zone climate control. Both the sporty Touring and up-level XLS add leather seats (black for the Touring) and a power-adjustable passenger seat. And while the Touring model gets a trunk spoiler and a sport-tuned suspension, the XLS gets a power moonroof, CD changer, and auto-dimming mirrors. The top-of-the-line Avalon Limited comes with keyless ignition, rain-sensing wipers, and the aforementioned acoustic windshield. Options include traction control and electronic stability control (available on all models); GPS navigation (optional on all but XL); and dynamic laser cruise control, which automatically slows the Avalon to match the speed of the vehicle ahead to maintain a safe following distance (available exclusively in the Avalon Limited model).

The Competition
The Toyota Avalon competes in the Large Conventional segment, which consists of 14 models. Buyers in this segment look for performance, comfort, and exterior styling, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 Avoider StudySM and the Escaped Shopper Study.SM

The top sellers in the segment during calendar year 2006, according to the J.D. Power and Associates Sales Report,SM were the Chevrolet Impala (289,868 units sold), Chrysler 300 (143,647), and Dodge Charger (114,201).The Toyota Avalon sold 88,938 units in 2006, a decrease of 6.7 percent compared to the previous year. Other models offered in the Large Conventional segment include the Pontiac Grand Prix, Buick Lucerne, Ford Five Hundred, Nissan Maxima, and Ford Crown Victoria.
