Editor's Overview

Toyota’s 2017 Avalon sedan just might be the best big 4-door sedan you can buy. Its styling, quality and amenities rival some Lexus models, while its price remains competitive with comparable makes from Buick, Hyundai and Chrysler. Add in the Avalon’s exceptional resale and reliability record and it’s hard to find a reason not to buy.

Likes: It is an Avalon Hybrid so it gets great gas mileage and has a range of 525 miles on a full tank. It is a nice quiet ride with all the acceleration and power you could need in a passenger car. Dislikes - nothing really, would love to be able to fit 6 passengers in it without sacrificing mileage, ride quality, and power but then that wouldn't be the same vehicle, would it?

My Avalon is a great car. I love the way it handles, especially when driving on the interstate. It is so helpful to have the feature of automatically slowing when following cars in cruise control. After driving this car to Arizona through many different terrains and weather without any problems, I'll likely never buy a different brand.

The vehicle does not have any problems. It is a very reliable, comfortable & luxury car with many features. Has been the best car I have ever had and driven. Perfect fit for a family because car is very comfortable and spacious. Best color that I find best fits the look of this Avalon is maroon color.
