The 2016 Toyota Avalon is a world-class sedan with an elegant and refined design. One of the most upscale cars in the class, the Toyota Avalon has an array of sophisticated touches that draw attention. Beginning from the premium design alloy wheels and leading up to redesigned upper & lower front grille, the Avalon is adorned with redesigned bumpers with turn signals. Complimenting it are the eye-catching rear bumpers with chrome garnish. The newly designed rear combination lamps set these off. Overall, the newly redesigned and expressive front-fascia makes for the Avalon’s graceful presence.
Avalon’s exterior lighting complements the design lines. The industry-first Quadrabeam™ headlight cluster utilizes a sleek and compact double-eye PES headlight design with two square glass condenser lenses that have been adopted for the low beams and offer outstanding lighting performance.
