About Toyota Avalon

The 2018 Toyota Avalon is the automaker's flagship sedan, the larger, plusher brother to the Camry. The Avalon appeals to those who want a full-size sedan with presence, a roomy interior, impressive safety features and a ride quality that favors comfort over athleticism. Unlike the Chevrolet Impala, the Avalon comes standard with a V6 engine, and it stands apart from sportier rivals like the Nissan Maxima and Dodge Charger with a hybrid version that attains up to 40 mpg. While facing the same headwinds as other rivals -- buyers favoring crossover SUVs to large sedans -- the 2018 Avalon remains among the best of its kind thanks to its reputation for reliability, efficiency and Lexus-like refinement at a Toyota price.

"My 2016 Hybrid Limited with safety package and great inside, and the ride is far superior to the 2013 limited hybrid the gas mpg is still 40 mpg and the reliability and problems were non-existant the seats are still harder than they need to be! The engine is much quieter than the 2013 and has more power, the auto emergency works fine and the dynamic radar cruise control works perfectly and the en-tune works better and easier to program, its a keeper"

"2014 model. OK I drive a lot. My first Avalon had 135,000 miles in three years also. Best vehicle is my other one (Lexus 460 L). You can read about it elsewhere. This is for my wife. She sits in the back seat and reads, relaxes, snoozes, etc. I'm the driver. So I look at this vehicle differently that she does. Easy to maneuver, quick acceleration, fairly quiet but not like the 460, buttons easy to learn - just give it more than one day to learn OK?! Several reviews talk about how difficult the dash is to figure out, but they then say they have only owned the car one day. Give it a few weeks. Bluetooth phone is wonderful. Make calls - answer calls. I play my MP3 thru the sound system and love that. Sirius XM radio is very nice and I enjoy listening to football/Nascar with that. Also have the one CD (my 460 plays 6) but that's OK. Finish still looks new inside and out. Black floor mats show dirt fast so have a vaccuum nearby. Gas usage is 18 all city; 24 combination, 32 all highway. Cruise is easy to use. I use a TomTom and it does give more info and is easier to program. Trunk space is fine. Almost flat floor in the back is very nice. I wear a stetson and it doesn't hit the headliner. Not much else to say. A very very nice car, easy on the wallet, and the wife loves it."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Have only had the car for about 2K miles, but it rides very comfortably (a little too soft in the suspension, on occasion) and very quiet. The only issues that I have are: The stereo, even in the XLE Premium, isnt that great--needs some work. As mentioned by other reviewers, 60/40 split rear seats are almost a requirement for most cars but, unfortunately, not for the Avalon."
