Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For the shrinking number of people buying large sedans, the Avalon will do quite nicely.

Pros
Efficient powertrains,
huge trunk space,
long list of standard features.

Cons
Polarizing exterior,
bland-looking infotainment interface,
all-wheel drive only offered on two trims.
