The Avalon is much more popular in the United States than in Canada. And yet, Toyota's full-size sedan is an interesting choice for those who want above all a comfortable and spacious car, which can ideally accommodate five occupants. Only one engine is offered, a 3.5-litre V6 that develops 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. A redesigned Avalon will soon arrive in Toyota dealerships.
