2011 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I owned 2006 and 2010 Avalon Limiteds. The 2011 is bit better. I don't know why, but fuel mileage increased over 2010, but it's a good thing. Pavement noises are pretty much absent. Riding over pavement irregularities is superb. Space, ergonomics, textures, panels, grains, and the like fit well, look, well, and are pleasing to the eye. I've never purchased the navigation system. The engine and transmission are smooth. Heating, including the seats, and air conditioning are wonderful. Blizzard Pearl and the beige leather are fine color combinations. Low road and wind noise. I don't understand the "9" ratings for MPG, but at 75 MPH I get 34-35 on road. Needs more thing support.
MPG, ride, low noise, engine and transmission performance, fit and finish, interior design, and silhouette. Twenty-four month free oil and filter changes, and other preventative maintenance services.
Add 2 inches,or so, to the depth of the front seats, or otherwise improve thigh support.
