Editor's Overview

The 2015 Toyota Avalon offers big-car smoothness and comfort once commonly associated with full-size American cars. But with the Avalon, Toyota quality and reliability are front and center, as well as a sleek profile, lavish interior and a price tag that might have some Lexus owners considering a swap. The Avalon also offers the only hybrid model in its class.

Comfort at very level, sitting, performance and handling work well together.

It's very difficult to report to people the problems I have had with my Toyota. Basically, I must say there have been no problems since I drove it off the lot in 2015. The performance is quick and quiet. Reponses well both in handling, turning and power. The comfort is very good, after all it is the reason I purchased the Avalon. The features are satisfactory, of course, what was paid for earlier with the 2015 are not standard in the 2019 models.

2015 avalon hybrid. A car you will be happy to own.

Best feature is the gas mileage. Currently 35 mpg. 35 dollars will allow me 540 miles of travel. Stereo system is very good. Acceleration is good in sport mode. In eco mode there is a small acceleration hesitation from a dead stop. The smoothness of the ride is typical of a midsize car. I really like the blind side mirror indicators for when objects are on the side. The best feature in my opinion is how quiet the engine is.

- Philip R

I would definitely purchase another Avalon!

My vehicle is comfortable and reliable. I love the interior color and design. I have not had any performance issues with my car. It is a smooth ride and gives great gas mileage. The seats are especially comfortable. I really like how passengers can make themselves comfortable by adjusting the air on their side without affecting my level of comfort. I would buy another Avalon!
