The Toyota Avalon is a fitting large sedan for the driver who appreciates understatement and subtlety. It delivers much of the comfort, room and high-end features of a dedicated luxury car — such as a Lexus or Acura — but without the status-symbol badge. If you’re the sort of person who wants an upscale ride but could do without the showier trappings common to the segment, the Avalon might just be a great fit.

Toyota’s flagship full-size sedan was all-new for the 2013 model year. It remained essentially unchanged for 2014.


The 2014 Avalon was 195.3 inches long, 72.2 inches wide and 57.5 inches high, and had a 111-inch wheelbase. The front seats provided 37.6 inches of headroom, 58.2 inches of shoulder room, 55.1 inches of hip room and 42.1 inches of legroom.
