The Avalon offers full-size interior luxury in an exterior package comparable to many midsize car; leading to nimble handling and ease of urban manoeuvrability.

Available Models
The 2003 Toyota Avalon has two model grades, the XL and the XLS, which has more luxury content; both of which are available in five-passenger bucket seat or six-passenger bench-seat configurations.

Interior Features
The 2003 Toyota Avalon has new layered gauges to add to the classic luxury-oriented interior styling. Two new standard features that typify the focus on passenger comfort and convenience are the air filtration system and extension-equipped sun visors. First time available options are a new optional perforated leather interior package on the bucket-seat model and a DVD navigation system with remote control.

The XL is generously appointed with luxury amenities that includes a 120-Watt 3-in-one AM/FM/cassette/CD six speakers audio system, dual-zone climate control, a multi-function display providing time, outside temperature, twin trip meters, odometer and warning lights, power windows that include a driver's side one-touch up/down feature with pinch protection and retained power, and power door locks with an anti-lockout feature that stops the doors from locking if the keys are in the ignition.

XLS adds such items as an audio system upgrade, automatic climate control, trip computer and compass display, rain-sensing wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with woodgrain-style accents and a driver side electrochromic auto-dimming mirror.

Exterior Features
