According to quto.ru, a number of Russian dealers announced the sale of the Chinese-assembled Toyota Avalon sedan. Cars are offered at prices ranging from 3.3 million to 5 million rubles.
The dimensions of the Toyota Avalon are 4975 x 1849 x 1435 mm, the wheelbase is 2870 mm. This car is larger than its closest relatives, including the Toyota Camry. At the same time, the car is more spacious than the Camry, and has not been delivered to Russia before.
Cars with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 178 hp, a Direct Shift variator and front-wheel drive arrived in Russia. The standard package includes a full set of airbags, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, an advanced media system, a sunroof and more.
The package includes adaptive cruise control, lane keeping and hill start assist. For comparison, for a Camry with a 3.5-liter engine with 247 hp. dealers ask up to 5 million rubles.
The emergence of Avalon in the domestic market is possible thanks to the parallel import system, which allows dealers to import branded products without their official permission. The Japanese brand itself announced to Toyota that it was ending production at the Toyota Motor plant in St. Petersburg in September. Representatives of Toyota noted that the company will continue after-sales service for Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
