I enjoyed driving the Toyota Avalon, despite its size, and when Jim asked me to guess the price, I was a bit high. I guessed $50,000; the review car lists for just over $35,000. I have to give the Avalon top grades for value. It really does feel like a more costly luxury car.
Considering the car’s size and performance, our 23 mile-per-gallon fuel economy seemed quite reasonable. And, it takes regular gasoline, which doesn’t work with most other luxury cars.
I also appreciated the easy steering, the range of adjustment in the power driver’s seat, the standard backup camera and the ease with which this car accelerated. There's a lot to like here.
