The 2013 Avalon gets a new sleeker exterior with a face that is similar to the new Camry with a roofline that slops further back, giving it a side profile that is similar to the Audi A7. According to Toyota the new Avalon is more compact than its predecessor with a longer, sloping roofline, flared front fenders, and reduced front and rear overhangs, lower vehicle height, and reduced body-to-tire gap. The new Avalon also rides on new 17-inch and 18-inch wheels.
The current Avalon’s 3.5L V6 will again be offered in the 2013 Avalon and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The new Avalon offers three distinct drive modes that help tailor dynamic performance to the driver’s needs. The drive modes – Normal, Eco, and Sport -are made available through driver-selectable switches.
The 2013 Toyota Avalon arrives this fall.
