The 2013 Toyota Avalon Columbia SC

2013 Toyota AvalonHow should we describe the 2013 Toyota Avalon? Others are saying things like “one of the most upscale cars in the class,” “well-controlled ride,” “sophisticated,” and “refined, responsive powertrains.” Toyota simply describes it as the “new breed.” We think it speaks for itself.

As you might expect, the new Avalon boasts more modern and eye-catching styling both inside and out. But more than that, the 2013 model is the most American Avalon ever: it was designed in the US and completely assembled at the Georgetown, Kentucky plant. And the new Avalon has something else up its sleeve – a hybrid option. Think you know the Avalon? Think again.

This forward tilting, non-slip area provides the perfect place to charge your cell phone or MP3 player. It has a wire management system with 2 power outlets, an audio input jack, and a USB port.

When it comes to entertainment, navigation, and convenience, the Avalon has you covered with the Toyota Entune system. This touch-screen interface allows for smartphone syncing, three years of complimentary access to apps, XM data, NavTraffic, NavWeather, and more. It’s like having a personal computer right in your car.
