Toyota Avalon Overview

When it was redesigned, the Avalon's formerly excellent, pillowy-soft ride was stiffened too much, especially on versions with the 18-inch tires. But Toyota claims it will address that with the 2016 model. Handling was sharpened and is now sound and secure. The lively 268-hp V6 is paired with a smooth six-speed automatic and delivers punchy performance and a commendable 24-mpg overall. The hybrid's 2.5-liter four-cylinder is teamed with an electric motor, returning a standout 36-mpg overall. Upscale materials and finish details give the spacious cabin a lush, luxurious ambience. Interior and exterior styling were given careful attention, but the controls were made more complicated.
