Toyota Rav4 - Best Cars for Empty Nesters - Toyota Vancouver / Burnaby Dealer


Another summer season is coming to an end. For many of you, the last rent-free resident (your fully grown child) is about to leave the nest to begin their educational or professional career away from home. It's a big transition, not just for them, but for you. Your needs have changed. Not only will your available pantry space seem a whole lot bigger, your garage space may too. 

That full size SUV or minivan can feel like an empty vessel once you've become an empty nester. Toyota is ready to walk you through this life change so that it becomes an exciting one, one that encourages you to get out on the road, and enjoy.

Toyota Camry for Those Downsizing without Downsizing Expectations

Toyota Camry - Best Cars for Empty Nesters - Toyota Vancouver / Burnaby Dealer

The Camry brand has been a part of Toyota's positively crazy year and is ready to take you on your next adventure as an empty nester. The vehicle leads the pack for city living and driving, so be prepared to enjoy your new found freedom with more nights out on the town. With an athletic stance, available 18-inch alloy wheels, sculpted body lines, an aggressive grille and muscular fenders you'll feel young again (because you still are!) and command attention wherever you go. The unique taillight treatment and available LED Daytime Running Lights together with the new Auto High Beam system brightens your driving experience day and night, not that you need to be home on time anymore, for anything. 


Your life is about to get a whole lot easier, so enjoy it in every way. The Camry allows you to do so, with modern conveniences such as Bluetooth equipped steering wheel touch controls, available Push Button Start and premium heated front seats. The navigational updates in the new Camry are equally impressive. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control automatically adjusts vehicle speed to maintain appropriate distance between you and vehicles ahead on the road while taking that trip to see the kids (or something more adventurous). The Camry's customizable 4.2 inch TFT full-color multiInformation display features incoming call information, current fuel economy, and available turn-by-turn navigation in addition to a suite of infotainment technology. 


In addition to driver efficiency, the Camry is more economically and environmentally sound than ever before with Hybrid models for both 2016 (with an EPA-estimated 40 mpg city) and 2017. And in Toyota's unwavering commitment to safety, the Camry comes standard with the Star Safety SystemT because even seasoned empty nesters deserve TLC of their own.

Toyota Avalon - It's Time to Treat Yourself

Toyota Avalon - Best Cars for Empty Nesters - Toyota Vancouver / Burnaby Dealer

This new period in your life marks the time to celebrate you. Treat yourself accordingly. And when it comes to a car to do so, it can't get much better than the 2016 Toyota Avalon. Noted as one of the most fashionable cars of the year, the Avalon is smart sensibility wrapped in luxury. 


From the outside in, the Avalon exudes mature sophistication. Its sculpted lines, curves, bold new grille, and available 18-inch allow wheels cast a stunning profile while the sleek LED headlights accent the entire scene. The vehicle drives as aerodynamically efficient as it looks, as underneath the Avalon's chassis are custom-shaped diffuser panels that reduce turbulence, enhance control, and reduce wind noise and vibration. The car's fully adaptive independent suspension provides even more control. 


On the inside, available ambient lighting highlights a beautifully crafted dashboard, heated leather-trimmed seats, and other luxurious if not intimate touches. In fact, the interior is so impressive you'll spend less time in your literal empty nest to hit the road in this upscale (and connected) room on wheels. A sleek and intuitive dashboard puts technology at the forefront and in your command with intelligent touch controls located a finger tap away from the steering wheel. The available JBL Audio system with eleven speakers in nine locations delivers movie theater worthy surround sound throughout the cabin. The available three-zone automatic climate control system allows everyone in your carpooling dinner party to adjust a temperature to their own liking. 


But don't let all of this sophistication and luxury fool you. The Avalon is an absolute rush to drive. Thanks to its 3.5 liter V6 powered by 268 horsepower and 248 lb ft of torque you'll feel the power and the freedom it affords. At an EPA-estimated 31 mpg (highway) you can indeed treat yourself without feeling the pinch.
