About Toyota Avalon

In the ever-growing sea of crossover SUVs, it’s nice to see a big, comfortable sedan being offered for those who want and need such a vehicle. With the 2016 Avalon sedan, Toyota has created a car as luxurious as it is practical, offering 5-passenger accommodations, outstanding fuel economy and a reasonable price tag. The Avalon’s sleek styling stands in contrast to the more upright lines of the Chrysler 300 and Ford Taurus, and although both these competitors offer the option of all-wheel drive, neither offers a hybrid powertrain option. The same holds true for the Hyundai Genesis. And, of all these competitors, none can match the Avalon’s record for resale, reliability or owner satisfaction.

There’s also revised front-end styling, two new suspension choices (Touring and non-Touring) and, on the XLE, the addition of Entune with Connected Navigation Scout GPS link. Toyota’s Safety Sense-P is made available on Limited models.

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.

"2014 Avalon Premium. The only thing I don't like about my Avalon is the back seats don't recline so you can't haul much in the trunk. Who thinks to check those things when buying a car. Just take it for granted. Rides very smoothly, I don't notice much road noise but maybe a little more than my 2004 Camry XLE. Very roomy, big trunk! I have to climb in to vacuum it. LOL Seems like the navigation system isn't as good as my friends Ford Focus. Otherwise, I love my car."

Pros: "It is more fun than the 2013, I won't go further!"

Cons: "Better interior than 2013"

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

"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"
