The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Toyota Avalon is at once traditional and modern, with a classy, comfortable luxury-car look and feel combined with top-notch safety and a great feature set. Spacious, handsome, and unremittingly conservative, the 2011 Hyundai Azera is a great alternative for folks who think the company's Sonata is a bit risque.
