The Toyota Avalon’s sculpted and swanky styling, luxuriously modern interior, and surprising agility give even pricier rivals a run for their money. A 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic are smooth and responsive. An efficient hybrid version is also offered, pairing a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor and sending 200 hp through a CVT. For long-distance cruising in style and comfort, the Toyota Avalon is hard to beat with its dashing looks.
Among other standard features, this car includes 17-inch wheels, heated side mirrors with turn-signal repeaters, a sunroof, heated front seats, leather upholstery, an eight-speaker Entune audio system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, voice command, and Bluetooth—all equipment you’d expect in a car.
40 mpg city and 39 mpg highway, according to the EPA—not bad for a 3635-pound sedan.
