The Avalon XLE Touring Sport Edition was created for those who seek the thrill of the open road. It’s a car with the right mix of performance and luxury, and with its unique features, it’s one that attracts the right kind of attention too. Available for just a limited time, this is one sport sedan set to make a big impression.
Avalon XLE Touring Sport Edition is designed to stand out. Black housings for the HID headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) complement the Attitude Black Metallic exterior. 18-in. painted, machined-finished alloy wheels add to its powerful stance, and unique badging serves as a subtle reminder of the performance that lives inside.
Avalon XLE Touring Sport Edition’s cabin is filled with special touches. The dashboard and rear console feature glossy, dark blue trim, and the luxurious, supportive black leather-trimmed seats are accented by dark blue contrast stitching. When you activate the Push Button Start, the XLE Touring Sport Edition badge flashes across the audio unit’s splash screen.
Sharp lines, strong edges and beauty in the details. The 2015 Avalon represents everything we love about driving, and its distinct silhouette conveys power and elegance. This is a car that draws you in the moment you see it.
A focus on brilliance: Quadrabeam headlights focus light from a single bulb into two individual lenses to help you see what’s ahead. On Avalon Limited, High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and an available Automatic High Beam feature create a headlight signature unique to Avalon.
In a world where so many cars look the same, chrome accents and available wide-angle fog lights give Avalon’s face unmistakable character.
Darkness never had a chance. Avalon’s standard LED taillights create a look that is as powerful as it is efficient.
Just in case someone might mistake Avalon for an ordinary vehicle, dual exhaust pipes remind them of Avalon’s performance pedigree.
Avalon has a drag coefficient of only .28. This was accomplished not only through design changes to the windshield and roofline, but also to many small details that make a big difference on the road.
When a vehicle travels through the air, it leaves a wake behind it that creates drag. By smoothly tapering Avalon’s tail section, we dramatically reduced its low-pressure wake zone.
We took a look at every part of Avalon—even underneath. Specially shaped panels help reduce turbulence beneath the car, creating a smoother ride.
To help keep wind noise to an absolute minimum, every exterior detail on Avalon is carefully thought out. The size, shape and placement of outside mirrors, windshield molding, door handles and even windshield wipers are precisely calculated. The result of this obsession to detail is a substantial overall sound reduction, and an increase in driving pleasure.
Avalon’s standard leather-trimmed seats, soft-touch materials and French stitching add up to an environment that feels as if it was made just for you. Subtle design touches make sure that the interior of Avalon stands out.
Avalon’s cockpit is tailored to the driver. Its available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat allows a near custom fit. It also features an available power seat extension for added leg support. Avalon Limited adds perforated leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats, and a premium leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift lever.
Avalon’s rear seats feature a center armrest with integrated cup holders and trunk pass-through for longer items. Avalon Limited offers three-zone climate control as well as heated rear seats.
A luxurious ride for everyone: Avalon Limited is equipped with a power rear sunshade to help keep rear-seat passengers cool and comfortable when the sun is at full strength.
Ambient lighting throughout the cabin of Avalon Limited lends a touch of warmth and elegance and also makes it easier to locate frequently used items like cup holders and door pulls when it’s dark.
Three-zone climate control allows a custom level of comfort. Rear passengers can adjust the air temperature for the rear seats without affecting the front, which ensures maximum comfort for everyone traveling. Only found in Limited as standard equipment.
Technology that connects. With a compatible smartphone, Avalon’s available Entune® App Suite multimedia system gives you access to more information than ever before. Stream music with Pandora®, locate restaurants with Bing™ and get movie tickets with MovieTickets.com. So much went into this car so you can get even more out of it.
Setting course is as easy as pointing, with the available voice-activated touch-screen navigation system. Use the touch-screen controls to find your destination on the map, and a voice prompt guides your every turn. Need an ATM or gas station? Just ask, and the system will help find what you’re looking for and guide you to it.
Avalon’s available HD predictive traffic helps you avoid traffic jams before others even see them. Now you can get real-time traffic updates on accidents, traffic and construction—all displayed on the onboard navigation system in the center console.
Get all the data you need and still keep your eyes on the road. Avalon’s Multi-Information Display (MID) screen makes it easy to check trip data, outside temperature, distance to empty, mpg and average speed. Optitron gauges make sure everything is easy to read—day or night. On Limited models, navigation information is displayed.
Keep technology in its place. Standard on all models, Avalon’s eBin™ features a lit, passenger-facing, nonslip surface for your cell phone or MP3 device. Plus, it contains two 12-volt power outlets, an auxiliary audio jack and a USB port. Avalon Limited and Hybrid Limited offer the world’s first in-console wireless charging* surface integrated into the eBin™. Just place your Qi-compatible device on the nonslip surface, and it charges.
Technology should simplify, not complicate. Avalon is equipped with Intelligent Touch capacitive controls for the audio systems and climate control. These sleek, low-profile controls allow the driver to adjust the environment in Avalon with ease.
The available Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio with Navigation and App Suite on Avalon Limited offers a concert hall experience with 11 JBL® GreenEdge™ speakers in nine locations, including a subwoofer and amplifier. This is the sound of luxury.
When you’re within a few feet of your Avalon with the Smart Key fob in your pocket or purse, the interior lights will automatically turn on, the front doors* and trunk can be opened with a touch of a handle, and once you’re inside, the engine can be started and stopped with the push of the start/stop button. *Only the driver’s door unlocks on the XLE.
While you can’t control the weather, this might be the next best thing. Avalon’s available rain-sensing wipers automatically adjust to match the amount of rain hitting the windshield and the speed of the car. Just set the wipers to “auto,” and Avalon does the rest.
A smooth and powerful 3.5-liter V6 powers Avalon, producing an impressive 268 hp and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. Incredibly efficient with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway and Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) certification, Avalon is an absolute breakthrough in high-end driving and a bold new direction for the road ahead.
Avalon offers a choice of two steering modes: Normal, for everyday driving; and Sport, for when the road begins to twist. It’s all about a more connected driving experience.
Racing-inspired, available steering wheel-mounted paddles provide for a more hands-on driving experience by letting you control when you shift and match each rev for seamless downshifts.
Avalon's Sport Mode increases throttle response and quickens the Electric Power Steering for livelier handling when desired.
Sometimes less can equal more. Avalon’s lightweight body, rigid chassis and impressive drag coefficient of .28 create a vehicle that is not only efficient but also more responsive to the driver.
Avalon has a fully independent suspension that adapts to the road to help give you more control.
Our Hybrid Synergy Drive® system and Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) combine for fuel economy efficiency and the performance you love. Driving a full-size sedan doesn’t mean you can’t have full-size savings.
Avalon Hybrid’s Multi-Information Display has driver-selectable current/average fuel economy, distance to empty, EV, ECO and Sport Mode indicators, energy monitor and more. The driver has never been more informed.
Avalon Limited has available Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) that automatically adjusts vehicle speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you.
Whether you’re parallel parking or getting out of a tight driveway, Avalon’s standard backup camera serves as a guide. An image of what’s visible to the camera behind you will appear on the touch-screen display whenever you shift into Reverse.
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps identify vehicles that you may not see when changing lanes or backing out of a parking space by illuminating a warning signal on the correct outside mirror.
Available on Avalon Limited, the Automatic High Beam (AHB) feature helps improve visibility when driving at night. The system helps detect oncoming vehicles as far away as 2000 feet and, depending on the circumstances, automatically switches the high beams on and off, making it easier for other drivers on the road.
Avalon comes standard with a total of ten airbags, including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, rear seat-mounted side airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags.
Avalon comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features designed to help keep you out of harm’s way. The system includes Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology®.
The available Pre-Collision System on Avalon Limited works with the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) system to determine if a frontal collision is imminent. If so, the system automatically applies the brakes and retracts the front seatbelts.
