Hey Sassy Peeps!
This year has been all about the Toyota experience for Simply Sassy Style! Until recently I always wondered what that THING is that sparked my uncle’s LOVE for the brand and now I know, Toyota puts the Q in Quality.
While growing up I vividly remember him saying he loves their performance and that they last FOREVER. He still stands behind that same statement today. As I become more familiar with this brand I see that he is not the only one that feels this way. When I am out and about in one of their vehicles, I hear the same from other Toyota lovers.
Check out a few reasons why I myself love the 2017 Avalon Hybrid…
The L without the “exus”
Not sure if you guys know but, Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese car maker (Toyota), and OMG did they add the L without the “exus” when they designed the Avalon. When I had it I literally couldn’t get enough.
Hybrid – A revolutionary driving experience. Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) and Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) combine for fuel-economy efficiency and the performance you love. Driving a full-size sedan doesn’t mean you can’t have full size savings.
Extended Sun Visor
As well ALL know the sun is know joke in South Florida. There are times when I go outside and I can feel it actually burning my skin. Yikes! The extended sun visor that comes available in the Avalon is WONDERFUL! It allows me to adjust the visor to keep the sun from shinning directly on my face. This is huge for me, because I have very sensitive skin and if I am not careful the sun will inflame my hyperpigmentation.
Push Button Start
I know this feature is fairly new, but I am all about the push button start. I actually think I have gotten little spoiled. LOL! It is such an added convenience and I always feel kinda preppy chic when I go to start a vehicle that has this feature.
Auto Dim Rear View Mirror with Compass
The Auto Dimming Rearview Mirror helps to automatically reduce the glare of headlights from vehicles behind you. It also features a convenient digital compass. I love that it allows me to know the overall direction that I am going without having to google it or figure it out.
