2022 Toyota Avalon: A Trim Comparison
The Toyota Avalon is an affordable, great-looking full-sized car that returns for one last time. It’s spacious, with very competitive features for the cost. The Avalon offers different tiers of comfort, safety, and performance. This guide can help you figure out what you need, whether it’s the basic Avalon XLE or high-end Avalon Limited.
2022 Toyota Avalon Trims
Now is your last chance to experience the Toyota Avalon as it will be discontinued after this year. The vehicle is offered in three different trims with the TRD trim having been discontinued for 2022. Read on to learn which each trim has to offer!
The 2022 Toyota Avalon XLE starts at $36,275 and is the perfect sedan for a family or a safe, daily drive to work. It uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine that gets 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. The mileage is around 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
The exterior doesn’t have anything too spectacular but does include heated power outside mirrors with turn signal indicators so you can have better visibility and be seen much easier by other drivers. The inside features a 9-inch touch display Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation App, which has eight speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced voice recognition, and five USB ports. The XLE also includes synthetic leather-trimmed seats. Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, keyless entry and push-button start.
As mentioned before, the Avalon XLE is incredibly safe since nearly every model from this manufacturer comes with Toyota Safety Sense. This package includes a pre-collision with pedestrian detection, lane departure alerts with steering assist, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control.
The Avalon XLE also has a hybrid option for $37,250 with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder ECVT engine. The hybrid can get up to 43 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway. Other than the engine, the hybrid model doesn’t feature anything new when compared to the regular XLE Plus.
For a starting price of $42,975, the 2022 Toyota Avalon Touring brings an ever-so-slightly sportier ride to the table. It rolls on 19-inch wheels, and sports LED headlights and taillights with smoked chrome bezels and an on/off feature. The Avalon Touring model also features a sportier ride with adaptive variable suspension. The exterior also has piano-black accents and a rear spoiler. The engine feature sound enhancement with active noise control.
Speaking of noise, the interior features an Entune 3.0 Premium Audio system. The JBL with Clari-FI system has 14 speakers, and the infotainment system has dynamic navigation and an app suite. Other interior features include a moonroof, ambient lighting, wireless device charging, and a heads-up display. Front seats are ventilated and rear seats are heated with this trim.
The highest-end Avalon is the Limited, which has a starting MSRP of $42,575. That’s actually cheaper than the Avalon Touring trim! Since it’s the top tier, it includes everything you could want from your sedan. The 2022 Toyota Avalon Limited adds high-intensity discharge headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers to the exterior.
This trim also features the same 14-speaker Entune 3.0 Premium Audio system from the Avalon Touring. In fact most of the features are the same, except that you’ll get genuine leather upholstery and 18-inch wheels with this model.
The Avalon Limited also has a hybrid model available for $43,550 with the same features as the non-hybrid model. It has the same 43 mpg city/highway fuel economy rating as the Avalon XSE Hybrid.
