Whatever the Avalon did was so that it was banished from the brand and demoted to the ranks of Both Lexus and Toyota this vehemently, but I smell a

Test drive the 2012 Avalon, and you’ll see that I’m on to Sure, the Brand builds cars, but the Toyota Avalon is a bit too — too comfortable, too roomy, and too luxurious to a Toyota badge. Granted, has largely neglected the Avalon for the few years. Aside from minor styling changes and upgrades for the 2011 model the Avalon hasn’t changed since 2005, which me to believe that it hasn’t much better at Toyota it did at Lexus. If you see a bunch of unwed Camrys running around, know who to blame.


The Toyota Avalon’s is a collection of this Japanese Greatest Hits. Conservatively with wood and brushed-metal it has all the bits and pieces that Toyota (and Lexus) a big success in the 80s and 90s: Big buttons easy-to-read lettering, razor-sharp exquisitely engineered storage that open softly and and a directional signal ticker enough to wake the dead. I the décor was a bit old-fashioned, but the plastics, and carpets are as nice as those in high-end luxury cars and the quality is faultless.

The Toyota Avalon has the six airbags (two in the dash, two in the seats, and two side curtain that cover the side plus a seventh “knee” to protect the driver’s knees the nasty sharp bits the dashboard. The Avalon scored in the Insurance Institute for Highway front, side, rear and tests — though, ironically, the test dummy did show an to the right knee. Regardless, the Avalon’s test scores good enough to earn coveted Top Safety Pick


The Avalon is to be smooth, comfortable and quiet, and it all of the above exceptionally well. But if you a passion for driving, you’ll be because the Avalon’s lifeless and indifferent handling are no fun on a curvy That said, if I was planning a trek, the Avalon would be on my list: big, comfy, and as it is, it’s a great way to eat up those highway miles.

The Toyota Avalon has power-a-plenty its 268 horsepower 3.5 liter V6; in fact, I it difficult to start from without jerking my passengers’ Fuel economy is better I expected from such a big 20 MPG city and 28 MPG highway, and unlike its Lexus brethren, the Avalon on cheap 87 octane gas.


All Avalons get Bluetooth connectivity, a nine-speaker stereo, and a camera as standard, while wipers and a touch-screen navigation are optional.
