Road & Track

A wide range of reviewers—along with the editors of TheCarConnection.com—love the interior comfort of the 2009 Toyota Avalon.

Seating in the 2009 Toyota Avalon is generally well-liked. Edmunds considers the front seats "wide and accommodating, particularly in the Limited, which offers both ventilated seats and a seat-cushion length adjuster." Consumer Guide states that the front of the Avalon is "large-adult roomy with supportive seats."

The rear is an even better story in the 2009 Toyota, offering remarkable room and great comfort, courtesy of seats that recline. Motor Trend likens the rear seat room to "the sort of stretch space a pricey ticket buys you on Virgin Atlantic." Edmunds notes that the flat floor in the rear makes it "a legitimate proposition to seat three adults." Road & Track lauds the "flat floor and a 60/40-split rear seatback that can be reclined through 10 degrees in any of five positions."

"The trunk has space enough for most family excursions, but packing gets complicated by intrusion from the wheel housings and trunklid hinges," comments ConsumerGuide. Unfortunately, the Avalon lacks pass-through folding seatbacks.

In general, ergonomics and material quality are first rate in the 2009 Toyota Avalon. Road & Track likes the "flat-panel switches, which are nicely lit at night."

Ride comfort and isolation fall into the same category: "The V6 sounds rich during acceleration and is always subdued while cruising," compliments ConsumerGuide. Motor Trend comments that "Toyota's flagship extends the limousine impersonation with, shall we say, noticeable silence and astute absorption of road imperfections."

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Avalon is impeccably finished and has nearly endless amounts of space.

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.
