Dashboard design on the Toyota Avalon Sedan is never cluttered, with Toyota's Optitron gauges laid out for easy eye access through the steering wheel's top half. Ideally situated in the center of the Avalon's dashboard is the now familiar LCD display panel providing all the information that a driver could possibly need to remain update on road conditions with internal and external temperature settings, fuel range, and date and time just some of the snippets that are constantly update and are easy to read.

Each of these variations come with a whole load of optional extras covering the broadest spectrum of possibilities too numerous to mention.
