2015 Toyota Avalon

Pros: Comfortable, quiet ride; outstanding fuel economy with Hybrid model; respectable acceleration in both V6 and and Hybrid models

Cons: Center control panel’s touch-sensitive buttons not always responsive; infotainment system can be slow to respond to inputs

CG Says: For 2015, Toyota’s luxurious large car gets upgraded Entune multimedia systems and a Touring Sport Edition with exclusive 18-inch wheels and special trim. A blind-spot monitor is now standard on Touring models, and paddle shifters are now standard on non-hybrid models. Avalon is a big, comfortable car that gives large, expensive luxury cars a run for their money. This large sedan offers many of the luxury features and interior appointments of a premium sedan without the premium price. The distracting control scheme is a mark against it, but the rest of the package is quite refined and comfortable. Though it lacks the brand cachet and dealer experience of a high-end brand, owners who can do without those aspects will find the Avalon a quite suitable and accommodating vehicle.
