While it may not set hearts racing with handling prowess or dramatic performance, that is missing the point. The Avalon is spacious, quiet, and comes with that Toyota trademark quality. The 2013 model year introduced a dramatic new look and increased luxury with more upscale features and improved materials. Although we say that it may not be the vehicle of choice for a day at the race track, the ride was tightened from the soft, disconnected feel of previous years. The Avalon is definitely one to consider if you want a comfortable, roomy sedan that is proven to hold its value over time.
