2016 Toyota Avalon Buyer's Guide

The 2016 Toyota Avalon is a large sedan with seating for five passengers that serves as the brand's flagship model. Its good looks and competitive power specs, along with Toyota's reputation for reliability, give the Avalon the potential to steal some sales from the entry-level luxury market without entering into direct competition with more upscale and expensive models from traditional luxury brands. The Avalon is thoughtfully equipped with five trim levels and a generous menu of upscale features. Its design remains typically conservative for the brand although a touch more stylish. This generation of the Toyota Avalon was introduced in 2013, and it has undergone some minor revisions for the 2016 model year. It has steadily been a solid performer for the Toyota brand.
