The Avenger's standout design really is its best attribute.
Otherwise, models like the Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata are better-performing, more fuel-efficient, and for the most part, more comfortable.
But on the other hand, neither the Sonata nor the Optima offer a V-6.
The Ford Fusion is all-new for 2013 and is now in a completely different league than the Avenger, with far superior design and a new generation of small turbocharged four-cylinder engines that are very fuel-efficient.
With a new focus on value, the Volkswagen Jetta is another alternative to the Avenger; it's more cohesive, design-wise, inside and out, and a clean-diesel engine, with up to 42 mpg on the highway, is available.
