Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
A rearview camera is added to the base XLE, prompting a slight price increase for the trim. The XLE Premium now offers the display audio unit with navigation and Entune Apps suite, while a blind-spot monitoring system is made optional on the Touring trim.
The completely redesigned 2013 Avalon ushers in a new era of style and refinement for the Toyota brand. This latest iteration preserves the high levels of luxury and comfort that made the Avalons of yesteryear such a success, but adds a dose of athleticism and panache to the mix.
The full-size sedan has been on a slump as of late, replaced by bigger crossover SUVs that offer more interior room and versatility. But, there is still a large set of the population who likes the low stance, comfortable ride and easy-to-park characteristic of a sedan. For them, Toyota builds the 2014 Avalon. Its striking exterior is further bolstered by a premium interior befitting the finest Lexus sedan. Taut driving dynamics, a smooth ride and a silent cabin are also mainstays of Toyota's flagship, as are the cutting-edge yet user-friendly in-vehicle audio and navigation systems. Alongside the potent V6 is a hybrid model delivering a slightly less robust 0-60 time but much better fuel economy

"Had gone to the dealer to replace tires on my '09 Camry XLE & this '13 Magnetic Grey Limited was in the showroom & caught my eye. Test drove it & was immediately sold. This car handles great although if you're looking for the previous Avalon's plushy ride, it's definitely not here, it's a firm but solid ride, even quite more firmer than my '09 Camry. The seats are oversized, comfortable & have 3 cooling and 3 heating temperatures, a blessing when the weather turns really cold. The Limited is loaded with x-tras that really enhance the overall experience driving this auto. I like the auto headlight dimmers, Bluetooth, fantastic stereo, GPS, backup camera clear and fast to respond, auto wipers, etc., etc. Safety features such as lane departure warning, backup, side & rear & front impact warnings are spot on (I've tried all the warning systems & they are spot-on. Also, believe it or not, my insurance rate has dropped considerably over the '09 Camry because of all the safety features. Dollar for dollar, this is the best auto you can buy in today's market. I have over 2k miles and am looking forward to many more happy miles."

"I have been a GM man all my life up until the Government bailed them out. And we lost Pontiac. I decided to try a Toyota Avalon Hybrid. I purchased it in Nov 2013 and have only driven it in winter.and only in town with one trip which I got over 40mpg. With leaving the car run a lot this winter because of brutal cold we have had and as my wife runs into the grocery store I'm still getting over 35mpg and that is checking by the actual gas I use, not the gage that tells you the amount, it is off by about 1 to 2 mpg. I really like this car its roomy and comfortable Memory seats are a plus for two drivers. I really like the sport mode because it makes the car feel like a 6cyl it surprised me when I used it for the first time, I like fast cars any way, so to have a hybrid that accelerate like does is a big plus. Now if you have four adults in the car in sport mode it does not perform like when i'm alone. I chose the Avalon over the Camry because of the trunk room and overall features. Love the blind spot monitors and back up camera. My wife had a hard time backing up a long drive way, now with a backup camera she does it like a pro."

"The 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Touring is the complete package. There is very little at all to fault in it. I am getting 40.4 mpg in mixed driving, and you cannot beat that for a full size sedan. The exterior and interior are well designed and well finished. I have had no problem with the headliner, which is what some other reviewers have mentioned. Neither have I had any noise problems - in fact this is one of the quietest cars I have ever driven. The sound system is excellent and even at high speed, road noise is minimal. I checked out the Lexus ES, but preferred the Avalon. Test drove the Ford Fusion, but again, preferred the Avalon. I am very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend this fully equipped, luxurious car."
