Toyota Avalon Interior & Cargo Rating

2022 Avalon Interior

Toyota has made significant strides in improving the cabin quality and impressions of its vehicles, and the Avalon is a consummate representation of this. Jump into the cockpit, and the driver will find an ergonomic and highly adjustable driving position behind the controls. The sleek, broad dashboard and the cascading infotainment touchscreen make the cockpit feel expansive, and the extensive use of high quality and soft-touch materials elicit a truly premium feel. From the base model, the essentials are covered, with dual-zone climate control, heated front seats with power lumbar support, and a nine-inch touchscreen through which the infotainment is managed.

Seating and Interior Space

Passenger room is plentiful both up front and in the rear, so all five occupants will have no complaints even for long durations. Rear cabin room is especially impressive, with up to 37.5 inches of headroom (without the moonroof installed) and 40.3 inches of legroom on offer. Still, the Toyota's seats are quite comfortable and offer plenty of adjustability, too, but they offer very little support, so you'll need to work on your core exercises if you're looking to crush corners. The Avalon is a large car, so its wide-opening, big doors along with its spacious cabin make ingress and egress effortless.

Interior Colors and Materials

Every model within the lineup has somewhat of a unique cabin design. The seats in the XLE trims are upholstered in a SofTex, which is available in Harvest Beige, Black, or Graphite to complement the hydrographic cabin trim accents. For a more exclusive impression, the XSE Hybrid Nightshade Edition gets perforated SofTex with Ultrasuede inserts hued only in Black, while the Touring gets an additional choice of Cognac/Black. Both the XSE Hybrid Nightshade and Touring models also get genuine aluminum cabin trim accents and aluminum pedal covers. Those who have a preference for leather will have to opt for the Limited, which can be had with either Graphite, Cognac, or Black premium perforated leather seats. It's also the only trim that gets genuine wood cabin accents.

2022 Avalon Trunk and Cargo Space

Within the full-size sedan classification, the Avalon measures up impressively for practicality, presenting a capacious 16.1 cubic-foot trunk. Though that is a little less than what the Chrysler 300 offers, it's nearly a full two cubic feet more than what's in the Nissan Maxima. Plus, the Avalon's trunk opening is really wide and the inside is deep and broad, making for effortless loading and unloading. A family of four could easily fit all their luggage and accessories in the trunk for a weekend getaway. If more space is required, the rear seats can be folded down in 60/40 split configurations, too.

In-cabin storage points are plentiful, too; for the driver and front passenger, there are two large cup holders, large door-side pockets, a cavernous center console cubby, a sizable small-items storage tray, and a large and practical glove box. There is also an overhead console up front. Rear passengers are also provided with two large cupholders and door side pockets.

A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, and hill-start assist are also standard.

A nine-inch touchscreen housing Toyota's latest software covers infotainment across the board and it includes Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa.
