Toyota has added more standard safety features to the 2017 Avalon. Now, Toyota’s “Safety Sense P” suite of active safety systems is standard on all models. It includes an automatic braking function that can detect pedestrians as well as cars, lane departure warning and a steering assist system to nudge you back into the lane, active cruise control, and automatic high beams.

The Avalon is Toyota’s largest and most luxurious sedan. Sitting above the Camry in the lineup, it is also the most expensive vehicle (excepting trucks and SUVs) Toyota sells.

New in 2013 and refreshed in 2016, the 2017 Toyota Avalon is virtually unchanged. The standard powertrain continues to be a 3.5-liter V-6 producing 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque and driving a six-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid model is available and utilizes a 2.5-liter I-4 mated to an electric motor and a continuously variable transmission. Both powertrains drive the front wheels. The V-6 returns an EPA-estimated 21/31 mpg city/highway for the 2016 model and the hybrid returns 40/39 mpg; as of this writing, 2017 ratings haven’t yet been released.
