For older drivers looking for a large, used sedan with lots of luxury amenities but without the luxury price, the Toyota Avalon is a great choice. All models come equipped with dual-zone climate control, eight-way adjustable driver's seat, automatic up/down power windows, reclining rear seats, steering-wheel-mounted audio and climate controls, and a nine-speaker audio system with six-disc CD changer and auxiliary jacks for iPod and MP3 devices.
The Avalon's exterior design features chrome touches for an elegant look, while the overall shape has been optimized to reduce wind noise and vibration, making the interior exceptionally quiet.
While the 2010 Toyota Avalon is as spacious as its competitors, with 40.9 inches of rear-seat legroom, it has the driving dynamics of a smaller car, making it easier to maneuver. It is powered by a 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine that gets an estimated 19 city mpg and 28 highway mpg.
