The 2022 Toyota Avalon is a full sized sedan based on a Camry with specious cabin space and bigger boot space. It looks very aggressive and sportier in exterior but it disappoints us with soft suspension setup and not so good looking infotainment system. Well the worst thing is about to come that Toyota discontinued its all-wheel drive feature. It is powered by V6 engine or hybrid powertrain with a front-wheel drivetrain. It directly rivals against Chrysler 300, Volkswagen Arteon and Nissan Maxima.

Engine, Top Speed, 0-60 mph & Performance
The 2022 Toyota Avalon is available in two different powertrain options: first one is powered by standard 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 301 HP and 267 lb-ft of torque mated to 8-speed automatic transmission which is connected to front axle. It manages to cross 0 to 60 MPH in 6.0 seconds and have a top speed of 130 mph. Let’s move forward to the another powertrain option which is 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine assisted by two electric motors which is capable of producing 215 HP and it also connected to the front axle with CVT. The Avalon gives better comfort with not so perfect but well-balanced handling. Its soft suspensions absorb the bumps effortlessly.
