For 2014, all Avalon models now come with a backup camera as standard equipment. The system in Limited grade models also features dynamic guidelines superimposed on the display to indicate approximate distances from objects in the camera’s field of view. All Avalon models also gain a three-blink turn signal mode for more convenient lane change maneuvers. The Limited grade models add ambient lighting to the dash.
The 2014 Avalon is available as a V6 gas model in XLE, XLE Premium, XLE Touring and Limited model grades; the Avalon Hybrid, rated at 40-mpg combined by the EPA, comes in the top three grades.

A very American effort, much of Avalon’s design and engineering was led by the company’s Calty Design Research (Newport Beach, Calif. and Ann Arbor, Mich.) and the Toyota Technical Center-Ann Arbor. The athletic exterior represents a dramatic styling departure from previous Avalon models.
Lower by nearly an inch than the previous-generation Avalon, with shorter overhangs, wider track dimensions and tighter gaps between the tires and body, this model’s athletic exterior dimensions suggest a sense of motion with a road-hugging stance. The more sculpted, athletic exterior design also helps the new Avalon cut through the air with a low 0.28 coefficient of drag that improves fuel efficiency and enhances aerodynamic stability.
A stronger, more expressive front-fascia design with larger grille opening creates a very sporty appearance while enhancing cooling airflow and pedestrian impact protection. The industry-first Quadrabeam™ headlight cluster uses a sleek and compact “double-eye” PES headlight design. Halogen and high intensity discharge (HID) bulbs are available for low beams. Avalon’s available daytime running lights (DRLs) using six high-performance LED bulbs give the front a distinct, modern image. Sleek and sculpted taillights use LED lamps for high visibility. Power side mirrors integrate a turn signal lamp, mirror heater, memory positioning, a puddle lamp, available Blind Spot Monitor indicator and available auto-dimming electro-chromatic glass. The Avalon Hybrid model is distinguished by blue-trimmed emblems and a hidden exhaust tailpipe.
Avalon’s Calty-led interior design combines high technology and craftsmanship with an artistic application of sculpted surfaces. Luxury begins with a supremely quiet ride. Sound-absorbing and sound-insulating materials are strategically placed throughout the car’s structure. Acoustic-type glass is used for the windshield and side glass. Foam material is used within the A-pillar, B-pillar, rocker panel, and C-pillar to help eliminate outside noise and control wind noise. The EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer) material used in the rear seats is also effective at sound insulation.
The 2014 Avalon’s rich-looking instrument panel uses Optitron-type gauges and a 3.5-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) color multi-information display. The Avalon Hybrid’sdisplay features a Hybrid System Indicator, which shows power output and regeneration. An Eco area on the dial display helps guide the driver to foster economical driving habits.
