Editors at TheCarConnection.com note that the 2009 Toyota Avalon, on both the inside and the outside. is designed to appease high-end drivers.
Car and Driver succinctly calls the 2009 Toyota Avalon "Toyota's Buick." While it doesn't blow anyone away, neither does it offend, and its interesting-to-some creases and folds lend it a bit of flair. "Too many unnecessary angles," complains Motor Trend, though "at least it's interesting for a change." "The new Avalon wears a more stylish suit of clothes than in the past," claims Road & Track.
Reviewers generally favor the interior styling of the 2009 Toyota Avalon. "Any Toyota Avalon feels upscale and inviting," contends Edmunds, citing an "attractive and ergonomic control layout, and high-quality materials." There are other nice touches inside, "including the Optitron gauges once exclusive to that brand," says Road & Track.
