2007 Toyota Avalon Interior
This interior review was written when the 2007 Toyota Avalon was new.
Auto writers praise the upgraded modernity, refinement and class-leading space of the Avalon's interior. Four long-legged passengers can ride comfortably, with room to spare.
Forbes reports that "the cabin is spacious and comfortable. Depending on the version, the Avalon runs from being merely nicely featured to fully loaded." And when it is fully loaded, the luxury class comparisons continue. Kelley Blue Book reports that with the Avalon's upscale features "many owners consider the car to be almost Lexus-like."
The majority of auto reviewers praise the 2007 Toyota Avalon's class-leading interior space and clean layout, comfortably seating "four big, tall adults," as MSN puts it. Car and Driver reports that "the Avalon is instantly lovable for its driving position and excellent arrangement of the controls." Edmunds' seat testers found them "wide and accommodating."
From the drivers' perspective, the 2007 Toyota Avalon has appealing, high-quality instrumentation and intuitive controls. U.S. News reviewer Rick Newman reports that "the radio and climate controls are cleanly, elegantly arrayed, with a digital readout in the dash for all relevant info. Knobs and buttons feel expertly crafted and subtly create a sense of confidence in the car." A folding panel hides audio controls and optional navigation out of view when not needed. Prompted by this nice touch, Road and Track calls the overall interior design "clean and elegant."
Reviewers find the 2007 Toyota Avalon rear seating spacious. It pampers passengers with an adjustable angle backrest, and with "enough positions available to hit everyone's sweet spot," says Car and Driver. Edmunds seat testers found "limo levels of legroom" that can accommodate a 6-footer with "more than enough knee and headroom." "The one drawback to the reclining seat back," finds the , "is the lack of a split-folding seat."
The 2007 Toyota Avalon comes with a competitive list of standard features. Road and Track calls the standard equipment list "lengthy," even at the base trim level. Yet, the notes that although the Avalon has a "host of goodies ... they aren't pioneering technology."
All 2007 Toyota Avalon trim levels come standard with a center console storage area with sliding armrest and dual cup holder, multi-function information display with audio, driver and passenger extendable visors with illuminated vanity mirrors, power door locks and power windows and dual zone climate control.
The 2007 Toyota Avalon Touring and XLS trim levels come with leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and leather-trimmed multi-adjustable power front seats with driver's power lumbar support. The 2007 Toyota Avalon Limited interior has a wood-grain-style and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and perforated leather-trimmed multi-adjustable power front seats with driver's power lumbar support, heated and ventilated front seats and a driver's seat and outside mirrors memory system. The 2007 Toyota Avalon Limited also comes with Smart Key and Push Button Start and remote illuminated entry with puddle lamps.
All 2007 Toyota Avalon trim levels come with 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space, which auto writers find sufficient. BusinessWeek reports that "although the trunk is a bit smaller than its predecessor's, space is still ample, with a pass-through gap for skis." Kelley Blue Book calls the trunk "huge and easily accessible." Cargo space inside the cabin is similarly praised, from the oversized glove box to useful storage nooks in the doors.
