Model Highlights

The three trim levels for the 2010 Toyota Avalon range from the comfortable and well-appointed XL to the luxurious and technology-laden Limited, with the intermediate XLS nestled between. Across the line, Avalons are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine with Dual VVT-i variable valve timing, which makes 268 hp and 248 ft-lb of torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that provides exceptional performance. The Avalon can reach 60 mph in 7.7 seconds, yet it carries EPA fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

XL models are suitably equipped with features such as 16-inch alloy wheels, tilt/telescopic steering wheel with mounted audio and climate controls, power adjustable driver seat with power lumbar, remote keyless entry, AM/FM 6-disc in-dash CD changer with satellite radio capability, MP3 and auxiliary input jacks, fabric 60/40 split manually reclining rear seats with silver metallic interior trim, auto up/down power windows front and rear and dual-zone automatic climate control.

The XLS edition piles on more luxury with amenities that include leather-trimmed power adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass and Homelink, wood-grain style interior trim, 17-inch alloy wheels, power tilt/slide moonroof, integrated fog lamps and power heated outside mirrors with driver's side auto dimming feature.

For true opulence, there's the Limited trim, which serves as the technology flagship and includes a power rear sunshade, memory driver's seat, automatic rain-sensing wipers, auto-leveling HID headlamps with auto-on/off feature and Smart Key system with push-button start and remote illuminated entry. A 12-speaker JBL Synthesis AM/FM 6-disc in-dash CD changer with satellite radio and MP3 capability provides entertainment, while Bluetooth technology enables wireless communication with a cellular phone. Top options on the Avalon include a voice-activated DVD navigation system, dynamic laser cruise control, 8-way power passenger seat, and color-keyed deck spoiler.

With its perfect 5-star safety rating, Toyota has made safety in the 2010 Avalon a high priority. Elements like electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) and vehicle stability control (VSC) with traction control are standard across the lineup. Other standard safety features include 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, fully adjustable active front headrests, child restraints, an anti-theft system and airbags galore.


Model News

For 2010, changes to Toyota's flagship Avalon sedan include rear-passenger auto up/down windows and a new exterior color, Sandy Beach Metallic.


Value Writeup

The 2010 Avalon is Toyota's largest, most luxurious sedan, with generous space for five adults, plus an exceptionally smooth, quiet ride and upscale interior amenities that have been compared to higher end luxury makes. While the Avalon is not offered with a V8 engine like some of its competitors, its V6 with responsive 6-speed automatic transmission make it one of the quickest in its class, while the smaller V6 saves fuel.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
