Toyota Avalon Overview
Sadly, the Avalon's formerly excellent ride was stiffened too much with the last redesign, especially on versions with the 18-inch tires. It no longer has the pillow-soft ride of its predecessor, which was one of its more remarkable features. Handling was sharpened up and the styling made more attractive, but the controls were made more complicated. The lively 268-hp V6 is teamed with a smooth six-speed automatic and delivers a commendable 24 mpg overall. The hybrid's 2.5-liter four-cylinder is teamed with an electric motor, returning an impressive 36 mpg overall. Upscale materials and finish details give the spacious cabin a lush, luxurious ambiance.
