The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Toyota Avalon is designed for a cushy, comfortable ride and impressive interior space above all else. The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.
