2012 Toyota Avalon Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/avalon/2012/ The full sized Toyota Avalon
has not seen a redesign since 2005. Sure there have been a few revisions,
updates, and upgrades made along the way; but it wasn't until 2011 that the
Avalon received an exterior styling change. But the Avalon has always
stressed luxury and comfort at an affordable price. Toyota has practically
used all they have learned over the past few decades to create a car that
is on par with many of Germany's finest luxury vehicles. And the Avalon was
named a Top Safety Pick for 2012 by the IIHS. The base price for the 2012
Toyota Avalon is $33,195.
On the inside the 2012 Toyota Avalon is on par with many more expensive
luxury cars. The amount of legroom and interior volume is great. Over 40
inches of rear leg room. The Avalon features reclining seats for a more
comfortable ride. Up front the plush seat are heated and ventilated for
your comfort. The cabin is very quiet and the suspension is perfectly
suited for a more luxurious smooth ride.
There is a ton of technology loaded into the Avalon like Bluetooth
streaming audio, a 12-speaker audio system, rain sensing windshield wipers,
a rearview backup camera. The DVD Navigation system is voice activated too
and can respond to 100 commands.
The 2012 Toyota Avalon is powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine with VVT-I
which helps aid in performance as well as fuel economy. The Avalon puts out
268 horsepower and
248 lb-ft. of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel Economy
figures are 19 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
Even though the current 3rd generation Toyota Avalon has not been refreshed
in a few years, the full sized pseudo luxury car has been updated year
after year with many great improvements and enhancements. The interior is
roomy and extra comfortable. All in all the just over $31,000 price point
means you will get luxury quality at an affordable price.

2013 Toyota Avalon Review and Road Test (with infotainment review)
The Avalon has been something of a caricature for Toyota since it wafted
onto the stage in 1994. The stretched Camry was low on soul, devoid of
style and soft of spring. In short, it was the Buick that wouldn't leave
you stranded. Since then Toyota has struggled to divine a mission for their
full size sedan, a problem complicated by the re-invigoration of the large
sedan market by the American brands. In hopes of resurrecting the Avalon's
sales numbers, which have slid to 25% of their 2000 year shipments, Toyota
has injected something hitherto unseen in an Avalon: style. Is it enough?
Before we dive right into the Avalon, it's important to cover the
competition. Back when the Chrysler LHS and Buick Park Avenue roamed the
land, the Avalon's competition was easy to identify. Nearly 20 years later
those customers are in a nursing home without a driver's license and Toyota
is looking for new hunting grounds (I can kid because I owned an LHS.) Now
we have the moderately successful Chrysler 300, the larger-than-ever
Taurus, a new Impala that doesn't make me want to put my eyes out and a
revised Hyundai Azera trying to beat Toyota at their own game.
But wait, I'm forgetting one. The "elephant in the room" that is the Lexus
ES 350. You see, the kind of shopper that needs a new car and immediately
thinks "Toyota Avalon" is far more likely to cross shop the Lexus ES than
the gangsta 300 or the Impala. After spending a week in the ES and the
Avalon fraternal twins back-to-back this comparison is even more valid.
Now in its fourth incarnation, the Avalon has finally developed a sense of
style. While the "I'm a bigger Camry" look is still going on, Toyotas has
managed to inject some creases and curves that made my 33 year old eyes
take a second look. It's not as visually exciting as the Chrysler 300, but
Toyota's styling efforts look better thought out than the Impala's 11/10ths
Cruze grille. Car makers love making their vehicles "instantly
identifiable" as a member of their brand. Translation: they make them all
look the same.
Thankfully Toyota ditched the Camry "quotation mark" shaped tail lamps for
a more elegant rear end treatment. The new rump features more chrome than
any other Toyota product, dual Exhaust
tips and tail lamps that wrap well around the side. The engineers stretched
the Avalon's greenhouse over the trunk to increase the visual length of the
car, a trick that worked on me until I looked at the spec sheet. At 195
inches, the Avalon is 6-inches longer than the Camry, but it's several
inches shorter than the Chrysler, Chevy and Ford. Since the ES and Avalon
are now twins separated at birth most of the dimensions are common except
that the Avalon gets a bigger booty (and more trunk space in the process)
and (oddly enough) has a lower ride height making it visually more

2013 Toyota Avalon V6 0-60 MPH First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Toyota Avalon V6 has been redesigned
with a much more youthful buyer in mind. Gone is the old-fashioned and
somewhat stogy Avalon replaced by a much sleeker and dare we say sportier
model that hopes to sell better to a larger demographic of buyers. We
recently had the chance to test, drive and review the all new Avalon, and
of course to see how fast it will go from 0-60 MPH in San Antonio, Texas.
So is the Avalon ready to move out of the country club and into the
mainstream? Check out this first drive review to find out.
2011-2012 Toyota Avalon review from Consumer Reports
Old-fashioned big sedan virtues combine with modern efficiency in the
Toyota Avalon. Just don't expect dynamic handling. Learn more about the

Buick Lacrosse vs Toyota Avalon
http://www.heywardallen.com/ Find the sleek 2011 Buick Lacrosse exclusively
at Hayward Allen Motor Company of Athens near Atlanta GA.
"This is NOT your grandmother's Buick anymore. Sleek design keys
incorporated. Two drivers memory seat. Sliding armrest. Driver side
compartment. Ventilated seat. Wood, chrome and metal stick shift. 18''
alloy wheels. Chrome accents throughout. Shark-finned antenna. Lots of
space. Deep trunk. Plenty of space for back passengers. Fold-down seats.
Moving over to the Avalon. 17'' alloy wheels. Doesn't have all the chrome
accents. Although it's not a bad looking car, it really doesn't say
'watch out Lacrosse'. You'll find that the back seats don't fold down.
About the same room for passengers. Trunk space: not quite as much. When
you sit on the driver's seat you'll notice there is no memory. So, you and
your wife can't each have your own settings. Styling: nowhere near as
sleek. No OnStar. Gages don't look bad but they don't stand out like the
