Class and features galore

If you're looking for a sleek sedan with serious style, don't miss the 2022 Toyota Avalon. 2022 is the Avalon's final model year—and what a model it is. This car has a sophisticated interior, a powerful V6 engine, a generous list of user-friendly features, and a very respectable EPA-estimated mpg.

The Avalon is Toyota's largest FWD sedan, replacing the Cressida, which was discontinued in 1992. Since then, the Avalon has earned a reputation as a distinguished premium vehicle. And with good reason—the 2022 Avalon's interior is high-end, the car provides a relaxing drive, and its attractive looks give it an ageless quality, style-wise. If you value substance just as much as style, you'll love the 2022 Toyota Avalon. It's perfectly at home in the city, while also offering the power and capability of a great road trip vehicle.

In fact, the Toyota Avalon is #7 on our Best Large Cars ranking. This shows just what a great choice it is, especially if you're considering different cars that can fit three car seats. Find out more about this stylish sedan in our 2022 Toyota Avalon review.

While we currently do not have many 2022 Toyota Avalons on our lots, we look forward to selling more in the future. If you love the 2022 model, you should also consider prior model years of the Toyota Avalon with similar features.

One of the finer points of the 2022 Toyota Avalon is its high-end interior materials. The front seats are made with synthetic leather as standard, in Black, Graphite, or Harvest Beige color options. The 2022 Toyota Avalon Touring adds ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel, while the 2022 Toyota Avalon Limited upgrades the seating to genuine leather.

While the good looks and plush seating do a great job of making the 2022 Toyota Avalon a comfortable vehicle, it's also just generally a pleasant ride.

Year comparison

2013-2018 Toyota Avalon (fourth generation)

The 2013 Toyota Avalon was showcased in 2012 with a much more aggressive look than its predecessor, including slimmer headlights and a huge grille on the bumper's lower side. The interior became more generous for this generation too, while a large infotainment system featured bigger knobs. 

In 2015, the look of the Avalon was refreshed with LED taillights, new turn signals, and a wider and lower front grille. Inside, there were fresh touches to the decor, including woodgrain on the dashboard and a seven-inch screen. Additionally, there were two engine choices: a 3.5L V6 with 286 hp, and a hybrid with 200 hp.

The Avalon got another facelift in 2018: the headlights were slimmed down even further, the grille was made even larger, and the interior became even more spacious. 

2019-present Toyota Avalon (fifth generation)

The fifth generation is also the Avalon's last. This generation ushered in a 3.5L V6 engine with 301 hp, along with a more aerodynamic-looking body in bold color options. The handling was improved with specially tuned shock absorbers, and more luxurious seating was introduced. 2021 was the final year offering AWD; as of 2022, the Toyota Avalon is only available in FWD.
