Toyota Avalon: A Paragon of Premium Level Value | Larry H. Miller Toyota Peoria


Already a benchmark for style, comfort and available hybrid fuel economy in the premium midsize sedan category, the 2017 Toyota Avalon ups the ante for standard safety with the addition of Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) for all grades. The TSS-P system had previously been offered only as an option on the Limited grade. The system equips the Avalon with Automatic High Beam, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist.


The move to make TSS-P standard on all Avalon grades (and numerous other Toyota models) follows Toyota’s promise to offer TSS standard on nearly all its models by the end of 2017. That will put Toyota four years ahead of the model-year 2022 industry target announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.


The Avalon comes equipped with 10 standard airbags and the Toyota Star Safety System that includes Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop brake-override Technology.

 

The available Blind Spot Monitor uses radar and is designed to detect vehicles in the adjacent lane where drivers may be challenged to see them. The same radar technology provides a Rear Cross Traffic Alert that is designed to detect low-speed cross traffic behind the vehicle when in reverse. Once an object is detected, the Blind Spot Monitor indicators flash in the appropriate outside mirror, and a signal also appears on the TFT color display.
