The Car Guide rating 84%(view ratings)
Redesigned from the ground up and built on a new global architecture, Toyota's full-size sedan looks and feels more like a luxury car than ever. The two models, namely the athletic new XSE and the more opulent Limited, are clearly differentiated in design and features to appeal to different tastes. The Avalon’s 3.5-litre V6 engine now develops 301 horsepower and Toyota Safety Sense P comes standard, as does the Entune 3.0 infotainment system and wireless charging for smartphones.
