Toyota Avalon TRD is not for the olds

Well, it might be, so long as you're cool with standing out in every parking lot.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Toyota might be loosening its necktie a bit, but it's still Toyota.

Thus, the same upgrades you saw on the Camry above will reappear on the Avalon with few alterations.

On the aesthetic front, that means 19-inch matte black wheels, aggressive aero that's painted black, red details on all sides and plenty of TRD badging.

Safety systems, including autobrake, are standard on both cars.

The story's the same inside, as well.

The seats are black synthetic leather with embroidered headrests and red accents, and the seat belts are as red as can be.

Underbody braces are thicker, the ride height is 0.6 inch lower, and the suspension's been thoroughly revised for better driving dynamics.

The brakes are bigger, and there's a louder exhaust system bolted to the V6.
