Reviewers point out that the 2009 Toyota Avalon offers a generous feature list that will please even picky buyers.

The Avalon follows a three-tier trim structure: XL, XLS, and Limited. "The standard equipment list is lengthy even on the XL," says Road & Track, and it features items such as an eight-way power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, and a nine-speaker sound system. It starts a bit below $28,000. The luxury-oriented XLS includes items such as leather seating areas, a wood-trimmed dash, 17-inch wheels, a power tilting-and-sliding sunroof, heated power side mirrors, and an anti-theft system. To the XLS' features, the top-of-the-line Limited, priced at $35,075, adds luxuries such as a 360-watt, 12-speaker JBL stereo, heated and ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, high-intensity-discharge headlamps, and memory side mirrors with puddle lamps and LED turn signals. Steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a six-disc CD changer, and an auxiliary audio input jack are standard across the board. Bluetooth compatibility is included in the Limited model.

The 2009 Toyota Avalon offers a bevy of fabulous features.

"Many of the upscale features on the XLS and Limited are also available as options on the lower trims," notes Edmunds; this can be a boon for picky drivers who don't want to commit to a pricey package for the one or two features they crave. Edmunds points out "other options, depending on trim level, include a navigation system, satellite radio and laser-based adaptive cruise control."

One of Kelley Blue Book's favorite Avalon features, standard across the model line, is "the five-position rear-seat recliners" that "adjust from a 25 to 35-degree seatback angle."
