The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Toyota Avalon isn’t a Lexus, but it almost feels like one. The big, roomy sedan is designed for providing a comfortable ride and plenty of interior space, and it absolutely succeeds on those fronts. The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.
