The Toyota Avalon is conservative looking on the outside, and to put it kindly, it’s not going to raise your pulse at first sight. The silhouette was updated a bit two years ago, with revamped bumpers, headlamps, and grille, along with new tinting for the tail lamps, but that didn’t make it any less conservative.

TheCarConnection.com can't find any sources that gush about the exterior, though many note its conservative good looks, with only a few criticisms. "Too many unnecessary angles," complains Motor Trend, though the reviewer adds that "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. Car and Driver succinctly calls the 2010 Toyota Avalon "Toyota's Buick."

Inside, the Avalon plays it safe but looks and feels more contemporary; however, the materials aren’t especially inviting, despite the recent addition of new wood and chrome trims. Overall, reviewers are quite positive about it. "Any Toyota Avalon feels upscale and inviting," contends Edmunds, citing an "attractive and ergonomic control layout, and high-quality materials." Road & Track points out nice touches inside, "including the Optitron gauges once exclusive to that brand."

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Avalon looks modern and just stylish enough on the inside, but its conservative exterior might be a little too plain.

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.
