When sophistication and style meet, heads turn. Sprinkle in lots of sass and you’re in for an exhilarating ride. That’s exactly the experience you get in the 2020 Toyota Avalon.
Recently I had a chance to take the 2020 Avalon Limited Edition for a spin and it was much more than expected. Striking design, attention to detail, and endless moments of excitement are just taste of the Avalon experience. So where do you take such a showstopping sedan? Everywhere of course! But I couldn’t think of a better place to show off this charming car than the backdrop of beautiful Charleston, South Carolina.
A Statement in Style
At first glance the Avalon captures your attention and refuses to let go. With strong character lines, sculpted surfaces, and a sleek unmistakable silhouette, you’re immediately captivated by its presence. This car makes a statement!!! Starting with the bold aggressive grille; chrome trim wraps the front like fine art. Reflective LED headlights frame the view while carved vents further accentuate the overall aerodynamics letting the wind know who’s boss! Like poetry in motion the Avalon’s striking details carry over to the wide stance 18-in. super-chrome alloy wheels. The sleek design flows like a crescendo to the rear where sharp LED taillights tease onlookers catching a passing glance.
Attention to Detail
Head-turning style is only a glimpse of the Avalon’s charm. Inside you’ll discover a well appointed interior that surrounds the cabin. Comfort controlled, leather-trimmed seats set the mood for an elevated driving experience, while genuine wood trim throughout provide even more premium touches.
They say “getting there is half the fun,” well, after driving the 2020 Toyota Avalon I’m convinced otherwise. Because once you start this baby, having a blast is only the beginning! The Avalon’s 3.5-Liter V6 engine is both powerful and patient and more than eager to accommodate. With super smooth handling that feels effortless, the Avalon grabs the road AND your attention and refuses to let go.
The 7-in. TFT Multi-Information Display (MID) features a full range of customization settings, like Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P)6 with lane control monitoring and assistance (LDA w/SA), and pre-collision detection systems (PCS w/PD) to make the journey just as safe as it is memorable. Plus, cameras cover every corner of this baby keeping a watchful eye out for any obstacles in your way.
Exploring your way around town is a breeze thanks to Toyota’s Dynamic Navigation system. The 10-in. color Head-Up Display (HUD) also features a host of helpful features like Dynamic Voice Recognition, Siri® Eyes Free, and Bluetooth® wireless technology so you stay connected and still enjoy the views ahead. So that your passengers can plug-in to the fun too, the Avalon has USB ports throughout. Stream you favorite tunes courtesy of the Avalon’s compatibility with Apple CarPlay®, Amazon Alexa, and SiriusXM® powered by a pulse-pounding JBL® sound system so you don’t miss a single beat!!!
Let’s Go Places!
I thought you’d never ask!!!
Of course adventuring around fabulous Charleston, SC in such a chic ride is just begging for a look-see by the locals and I was more than willing to accommodate any and all requests for a closer look.
Thanks to the navi in the Avalon, cruising through the beautiful Charleston landscape and soaking up the history of the city + the uh-mazing scenery was sooo much fun!!! I even discovered a cute little cafe that’s just perfect for sips in the shade.
From the sinfully stylish exterior to the gorgeously appointed interior, this stunning sedan just sings to all of my senses. And with a starting sticker price of $35,875 MSRP, both you AND your wallet get to enjoy wherever life takes you. 😉 Go for a spin in the 2020 Toyota Avalon and see why getting there is ALL of the fun!
