The 2022 Toyota Avalon comes with a few changes this year. Toyota has announced this model year to be Avalon's last, with production ending in August 2022. Countdown begins for the shoppers, though the 2022 Avalon has discontinued its optional AWD along with the TRD and the XSE Nightshade trims. The Toyota Avalon lineup shrinks to 3 trim levels including the XLE, Limited, and the Touring, starting at a base price of $36,275. The large sedan will remain in the production line with the same 301 hp 3.5L V-6 engine in standalone FWD configuration. Also, Toyota's reputation and Avalon's hallmark comfort, spacious interiors, loaded features, and great fuel economy of 26 MPG makes it a mainstream choice.



Leasing the 2022 Avalon costs $602/month for 36 months alongside a down payment of $3,252. Moreover, there is a 2022 Toyota Avalon Hybrid in the inventory as well that's relatively more fuel efficient with 44 MPG. In addition to these, it has been released at the dealerships with 8 exterior colors and 3 interior accents against the shares of the VW Arteon, Chrysler 300, and the Dodge Charger.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"The 2022 Avalon accommodates both the comfort-oriented driver and the one who wants a few thrills behind the wheel." - MotorTrend

The 2022 Toyota Avalon is a carry-over model with no major changes and this large sedan is in its last production year. The 2022 Avalon's lineup has been reduced to 3 trims,  starting from the XLE priced at $36,275 and going up to to $42,975 for the range-topping Touring. The 301 hp 3.5L V-6 is standard that allows this full-size sedan to dash from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. At the same time, the sedan manages 26 MPG fuel economy ratings, which is great. Moreover, it has scored a J.D.Power rating of 80, establishing the Toyota's Reliability Index aptly. 

Regarding its finances, the 2022 Avalon resale value depreciates to nearly $17,000 after 5 years. The fuel cost, on the other hand, estimates to be $8,669 and maintenance charges $4,501 for the same 5-year period.  Apart from this, the insurance fee comes out to be $4,725 in totality. Therefore, the total cost to own an Avalon in 2022 is nearly $40,598, at the least, exclusive of destination and handling charges.

Buying Advice

The Touring trim is the one to choose from the available lineup. The heat and ventilation functioned seats and 14-speaker JBL Premium Audio as standards are just in perfect sync to make the interior as convenient and engaging as possible. The added 4-mode switch (ECO, Normal/Custom, Sport, Sport+) and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system further give it a slight head start against its siblings in its overall driving persona and handling prowess with a considerable price hike. 

Features
8.5/10

"For our money, the Avalon is the best of the bunch, offering a smooth ride, comfortable seats and a richly appointed interior." -Edmunds

The 2022 Toyota Avalon is available in three trims: XLE, Limited, and Touring. The pricing for the last model year of the Avalon starts from $36,275 and goes up to $42,975. The sedan is well equipped and offers Audio Plus with a 9-inch touchscreen, eight speakers, and a 3-Mode Switch (ECO, Normal/Custom, Sport ) as standards. It comes equipped with 17-in. silver-painted alloy wheels on the outside and SofTex trimmed seats with perforation and Ultrasuede trim on the heated front seats.

The Limited trim comes a little more expensive at $42,575 that adds features such as the Premium Audio with 14 JBL speakers and Dynamic Navigation. The 18-in. Super Chrome alloy wheels and Premium leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats further enhance the appeal collectively. The top-spec and most luxurious Avalon model, the Touring costs $42,975 which has been bestowed with an upgraded 4-mode switch, extra ventilation for front seats, and exclusive 19-inch wheels.

"It delivered well-mannered handling that did an admirable job of keeping bumps and jolts out of the cabin." - Car And Driver

The 2022 Toyota Avalon continues with the 3.5L V-6 that is capable of generating a power of 301 hp and a torque of 267 lbs-ft. It is mated with 8-speed automatic transmission in an FWD layout. Unfortunately, the AWD has been called off from production for its last model year. 

Considering the handling on different terrains, the 2022 Avalon gets ECO, Normal, and Sport modes as standards. Its 3-mode switch updates the steering inputs, suspension stiffness, and throttle response to maintain that extra traction. Furthermore, the Touring trim upgrades with sport-tuned adaptive suspension and additional Sport+ mode.  

The Toyota Avalon has a 0-60 MPH acceleration timing of just 6.1 seconds while the quarter-mile clocks 14.3 seconds. While the top speed has been restricted to 132 MPH. For braking pursuits, it receives 11.7-inch front vented and 11-inch rear disc brakes that keep the braking distance at 176 ft for 70-0 MPH deceleration.

Alongside that, the heating function remains standard but power ventilation comes exclusive for the Limited and Touring only.   

Moreover, the 8-way power-adjustable front seats of the 2022 Avalon are accompanied by heated rear seats in the Limited and Touring configurations. Also, it has a cargo capacity of 16.1 cu-ft with easy accommodation of 5 passengers in the cabin.

As far as its infotainment is concerned, the Avalon receives a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment screen along with a 7-in. TFT Multi-Information Display  as a standard.  

The Audio Plus with 8 speakers in the XLE trim is changed to Premium Audio with 14 JBL speakers in the higher configurations. Even the Dynamic Navigation is introduced from Limited trim onwards. However, the Android Auto & Apple CarPlay integration and SiriusXM with 3-month All Access trial subscription retain their standard feature stature. Some of the notable features have been listed down:      

  • SofTex-trimmed seats with perforation and Ultrasuede trim

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control

8.0/10

"Casual onlookers may mistake the 2022 Avalon for a Camry, or vice versa." - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Toyota Avalon has been adorned with 8-exterior colors including the Celestial Silver Metallic and Harbor Gray Metallic. It gets the laser-ablation designed DRL LEDs Headlights along with Adaptive Corner Light on the front fascia for an intensified long range beam. Not just that, the aerodynamic tangential ventings have been carved as well on the front.

Considering the ride, the 2022 Avalon Thrusts on the 17-inch, 18-inch, and 19-inch wheels in the XLE, Limited, and Touring trims respectively. Also, it is surrounded by High Solar Energy Absorbing Glasses that have acoustic-noise reduction characteristics inherent to them. With a $1,000 priced Moonroof Package, one can attach a power moonroof with power sliding in the XLE trim as well.

Based on the table, the Chrysler 300 is nearly 500 lbs heavier and has a 7-inch longer wheelbase than Avalon. This results in harder handling during hard cornering and braking as compared to Avalon. The same remains true for the Dodge Charger too at the same time. In addition to that, there are some notable features that have been listed down:

  • LED headlights with smoked chrome bezels, on/off feature, and Adaptive Cornering Lights
  • LED taillights with dynamic turn signals
  • Acoustic noise-reducing windshield and driver and front passenger-side windows

Safety
7.0/10

"The Avalon has lots of standard convenience and safety features." - cars.usnews

The 2022 Toyota Avalon has got no safety rating yet from the NHTSA and IIHS. However, it is a mechanical continuation of the 2021 model year, so the 5-star NHTSA and "Good" rating are going to be achieved quite easily. But that also means that it will still be missing the "Top Safety Pick" award. To complement such structural resilience, some safety features have been mentioned that assist:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS with PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)
  • Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan (Advanced Safety Package)
  • Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB) (Advanced Safety Package)

2022 Toyota Avalon vs 2022 Volkswagen Arteon

The 2022 Toyota Avalon has better acceleration and performance surge than the 2022 VW Arteon. The cabin space management is also superior in the former. Avalon also offers a decent fuel economy. Therefore, one can definitely prefer Toyota here. 

2022 Toyota Avalon vs 2022 Chrysler 300 

Except for the range practicality, the 2022 Chrysler 300 misses to outclass the 2022 Toyota Avalon in any segment. Be it performance parameters or interior spaciousness or fuel economy, the Toyota Avalon is a real deal over the Chrysler 300. 

2022 Toyota Avalon vs 2022 Dodge Charger

The 2022 Toyota Avalon takes the edge against the Charger in acceleration and power curve. Despite being quicker, the former comes out to be more economical in fuel mileage. The cabin roominess is also an asset on offer. Hence, the Avalon seems to be a better option. 

 

Final Verdict

Though the 2022 Toyota Avalon is in its last year of production but it has got everything to be stand out in the crowd. The perfect blend of power, ambiance, and practicality all at once. Even the price tag is relatively within the competitive range only as that of other rivals. So, one should surely consider buying one.

Stylish and luxurious large sedan

Pros - Stylish shape, huge trunk space, classy cabin and comfortable ride.

Cons - Bland infotainment interface and above average starting price.

Safe and reliable large car for families. My extravagant Avalon is one of the finest of its kind. I went with the Touring variant, which costs roughly around 44 grand, and the V-6 propels the Avalon from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds. It's a comfortable highway cruiser, ready to soak up long-distance travels, and it has a spacious cabin. The cabin has a big waterfall-style center stack that separate...

Cons - *Uncomfortable low-floor rear seats *Poor under-thigh support

Not fully satisfied with my purchase I'm impressed by the performance of my new Toyota Avalon, but the seating comfort is a big compromise in this sedan. While test driving, me and the sales consultant took the front seats and left the rear cabin unoccupied. I should've tested the under-thigh support and seating position before purchasing it.
