About Toyota Avalon

The standard V6 engine in the 2012 Avalon has plenty of power, according to reviewers, and the six-speed automatic transmission is remarkably smooth and responsive. The 2012 Toyota Avalon has an EPA-estimated city/highway fuel economy of 19/28 mpg, which is good for the class. The Avalon’s comfortable, well-controlled ride impressed test drivers, but its numb steering disappointed them. Furthermore, some critics pointed out that body roll prevents the Avalon from feeling agile when the road becomes twisty.

While some critics thought the cabin was dated, most automotive journalists agreed that the 2012 Toyota Avalon has a spacious, quiet cabin built with high-end materials. The Avalon’s comfortable front seats were praised by reviewers, and many said the reclining back seat is among the most spacious and comfortable in the class. The trunk of the Avalon is smaller than average for the class, measuring 14.4 cubic feet. The majority of reviewers said the Avalon’s buttons and knobs are well-organized and clearly labeled. A moonroof, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, a USB/iPod input, and Bluetooth are all standard features in the 2012 Avalon. Proximity key, push-button start, heated and ventilated front seats, a power rear sunshade, a 12-speaker JBL audio system, and a touch-screen navigation system are all options.

The cabin is spacious, but to get a sense of what the Avalon is all about, get out of the flat, wide front bucket seats and into the back seat, where the Avalon does a convincing impression of a town car. There’s so much head and leg room, surrounded by upscale trimmings, that an adult can cross their leg over knee even with the front seats pushed to the back of their tracks. The rear seats recline a few inches for long-distance comfort, and there’s a small window to access the spacious trunk.

The Avalon is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, with standard airbags (and a driver knee airbag) and stability control, as well as an available rearview camera and Bluetooth. Steering-wheel controls, XM radio, and a USB port are also standard. The opulent Limited model includes ventilated front seats, a power front passenger seat, and keyless entry with pushbutton start.
