2008 Toyota Avalon Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Toyota Avalon

  • Fine balance of softness, composure.

    - Consumer Guide
  • The Avalon interior is remarkably clean and uncluttered.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • Rear legroom is particularly generous with three-across seating facilitated by elimination of the rear hump.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • We quickly discovered the Avalon is the kind of car that will never annoy you, a car best characterized by the absence of noise, vibration or harshness.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • The engine is spooky smooth, velvety in its power delivery, and dang near silent in operation while the transmission's ratios seem perfectly chosen.

    - The Car Connection
  • ...the V6 can barely be heard while idling and is glassy-smooth across the rev band.

What reviewers liked least about the Toyota Avalon

  • ...simulated panic stops induced noticeable nosedive.

    - Consumer Guide
  • Touring uses same tires as other models, but firmer suspension registers some pavement imperfections other Avalons ignore.

    - Consumer Guide

Toyota Avalon Comparisons

  • ...assembly quality, materials no longer easily outpace those of like-priced rivals.

    - Consumer Guide
  • It's no longer the hands-down class leader in refinement, room, or interior ambiance.

    - Consumer Guide
  • The Avalon ultimately drives a lot like, well, a Lexus ES330... only bigger and more powerful.

    - The Car Connection

Best one-liner about the Toyota Avalon

  • ...with just a few well-defined design strokes, the new Avalon manages to project more character, more contemporary energy than ever before.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • ...the newest model offers as many surprises as watching reruns of the Weather Channel.

    - New York Times
  • Any more airbags and the Avalon could be used as a flotation device.

    - The Car Connection
  • It's a handsome car even if it's not particularly memorable - more Lyle Waggoner than Robert Redford.
