Expert Quotes:

Expressway travel is a quiet, efficient affair
Car and Driver

For passengers, particularly, the Avalon is definitely a nicer-than-average way to travel.
Automobile Magazine

Plenty of long-trip stretch-out space.
Consumer Guide

As for the Avalon's aft quarters with a standard 60/40-spllt reclining rear seatback and superb leg/head room, they're simply the best in this -- and quite possibly any other -- class.
Kelley Blue Book

The driver's seating position is comfortable in the Avalon and is slightly elevated, offering a commanding view of the road.
Motor Trend

To fully understand the 2011 Toyota Avalon, you'll have to slip from the roomy but flat front buckets into the back seat. Here the Avalon does is at its most convincing. The near-luxury accommodations have so much leg and head room, even with the power driver seat dialed back, we can't even think of a friend who wouldn't be cozy. The rear seats tilt back for long-distance comfort, and there's a keyhole of access to the ginormous trunk that makes a ski weekend for four a snap.

A six-seat version can be ordered, for the one or two fans of column-mounted shifters out there; leather upholstery is standard, and with the generally handsome level of materials, the Avalon's cabin is up to its $30,000-plus task.

All the while, the Avalon provides the sort of pillowy, cushy ride comfort that few sedans today provide. It's free of harshness, and beyond creamy—though the front end bobs up and down in a way that most new cars don't.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota Avalon provides luxury-car comfort for six adults, with enough space to sprawl out and a cushy ride to match.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
