The Avalon's ride is superb, but it still retains excellent handling, performance and braking. Fuel consumption is very close to "as stated". The Avalon is the best kept secret in the industry; it is a superb luxury car with great fuel economy, performance and excellent resale.
Performance & good fuel economy, excellent placement of instruments and controls. Heavy car feel with front wheel drive traction.
Should have side stripe to break up plain side that makes car look smaller than it is. Overhead compartment above mirror could have higher lip to hold eyeglasses.
