Toyota's Avalon flagship is a sensible, roomy sedan that straddles the divide between high-end midsized sedans and true luxury cars. It's a large, comfortable cruiser and, especially in the Limited trim, can be quite upscale. The Avalon scores among the better large sedans in the category.
Toyota tried to inject some excitement into the current generation Avalon with more dynamic styling and more engaging handling. But those changes also came with a much stiffer ride, one that was totally unbecoming to this class of sedan. For 2016 Toyota rectified that shortcoming, restoring the Avalon's comfortable ride.
