I received this 2017 Toyota Avalon from DriveShop for a 7 day test drive. All opinions are my own.
The 2017 Toyota Avalon Touring in Magnetic Gray Metallic with Almond leather interior was the PERFECT Full Size Luxury Vehicle for me to get my “Mom on” with all of the chauffering, shopping, deliveries and errands that I have to do! I got to test drive this sweet chariot for 7 whole days and I hated to give it back!
2017 Toyota Avalon
So my very first car as a LICENSED driver was a 1982 Toyota Tercel. I adored that car. It was a copper hatch back with 205,000 miles on it and I drove that thang till the wheels fell off! I think that I would still be driving it had I not totaled it in ’91. I never sat behind the wheel of a Toyota made vehicle since until now. It was an amazing reunion!
It was fantastic to see where Toyota has come from in terms of comfort and style. This full size luxury vehicle had both. It also lacked nothing when it came to performance.
Here are some of the specs:
3.5 Liter V6 6 speed automatic
18-in. dark gray painted alloy wheels
Black grille w/Chrome surround
Leather steering wheel
Touch Heating control! (My favorite feature!)
Heated front bucket seats
Dual Zone Auto climate control
7 inch touch screen
As you can so, no expense was spared on the interior. I really loved to contrasting colors and the leather style.
I primarily used this vehicle to travel around Atlanta and run errands for my family. There is ample trunk space for hauling things and plenty of room for my teen and her friends. Because of all the navigational features getting through the city was a breeze. Features like the Pre-Collision System w/Pedestrian Protection and Lane Departure Alert w/Steering Assist helped to keep us extra safe while on the road.
Overall, it was a great ride. This car handles very well in Atlanta traffic, while keeping everyone inside cozy and super comfortable. My teenagers had plenty of leg room and usb ports for their phones to keep them plenty busy.
