Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Regarding the overall design inside the cabin, it’s clear that the new Avalon is a significant improvement over models of previous generations. A wide, waterfall-style central stack divides the driver from the front passengers. It also displays stylish switches and an easy-to-use touchscreen. The materials used in the interior are beautifully finished, and the back seat has plenty of space for tall people for stretching their legs. There’s also an enormous trunk that holds the capacity of 16 cubic feet storage space. The standard rear seats that fold with a 60/40 split permit users to increase the space when you’re carrying bulky objects. When we tested the hybrid version which we used, we were able to carried seven carry-on suitcases in the trunk, and 18 with the rear seats folded. The hybrid is able to fit less bags (six when the back seats are used and 17 when they are folded) because of its battery pack, which encroaches on the space for cargo.
