The new Avalon is also, technically, a midsize sedan, though cargo space has improved. The model’s interior features a standard touch-screen display and available niceties such as rear heated seats and trizone climate control.

the rear is VERY similar to the Azera, its uncanny really. Toyota needs to promote whomever designed this and put that person in charge of other products.

I really like the rear of it, but they giant lower grill that works on some cars ('13 fusion) is not doing it for me on this car. Also, the interior looks really nice except for that grainy plastic on the center console- it looks like the lower door of an old cavalier or a tundra. Overall, I like it. Just on looks, I would take this over an ES (and maybe a GS too).

this and the ES will be more comparable than ever and if this is cheaper its hard to understand the point of the ES350. I noticed there is a LOT of chrome inside of this car.

Front styling doesn't work for me. Rear looks like a Jaguar. Overall an underwhelming redesign.

WTF

It's hard to understand the point of the ES regardless of this car.

The ES (and IS) is meant to get them into the Lexus brand. The hope is they will eventually upgrade in later years to higher profit margin vehicles like the GS and LS. Plus you the Lexus dealership perks like free washes and loaner cars for service. There is nowhere to go within Toyota once you upgrade from a Camry to the Avalon.

As long as this new Avalon doesn't drive and handle like the previous gen I think its a winner...

I have to agree with some of the above comments regarding the styling. The rear end is very nice but the front end is ungainly. Not a good face for Toyota's flagship. The competition has a real chance to take some share from Toyota with their recent sedan styling trends.

the avalon is consistently near the bottom of the class in sales so they have nowhere to go but up. This should appeal to younger (meaning people in their 50s) buyers. This is a tough class though so Toyota really doesnt have any weak players to steal share from. Taurus was just updated and new impala is coming next year.

I see a lot of Lexus ES in the rear; and in generally, it is pretty stylish -compared to the current Avalon. However, I can't get over the fact that the front reminds of a really big Camry, with a really big mouth.

Looking at the front grill reminds me of "Robby the Robot" from Forbidden Plant. Hope they tone down the chrome

what an ugly looking piece of crap.

the grill is aweful!
the Front looks like the Honda civic. it just lost it's elegant somewhat muscular look.

what a garbage toy this is

abdu2s

So toyota steals from Hyundai and Honda Now? thats whats up.

Civic @ the front. Azera @ the back

sheth

I think it looks pretty good for a Toyota. One of their better efforts. Not perfect, and somewhat derivative of a Hyundai but still nice. Interior looks better than any Toyota on the market.

1. Okay, it's not the most gorgeous car in the world (were you expecting the looks of a ferarri?), but it really does look nice.
2. Get used to the grille. I've hated the past grilles on hyundai's, lexus, audi's, but grew to like them. It's different, but that doesn't automatically mean its ugly.
3. This car really doesn't "copy" other automakers. Cars take 4-5 years for a complete redesign. Meaning, they were working on this design a few months after hyundai was working on their azera. They didn't "steal" ideas. Sometimes, cars just look like each other; it's called a "fad." It's tough to be original nowadays. Have you looked through how many car models have been made since the Model T? Tough not to "copy" some element on some car in the last 100 years.

I am amazed on all comments above. This design is the best toyota has come up with after the 07 camry. It's beautiful and unique i most say.the interor is so.classy and luxurious. It look way better than the 2012 and.2013 camry.they would definately experience huge sales.

Dennis

Like the new look. My current 2001 Avalon has 250,000 miles & still runs great. Time for me to get into the showroom and check out the new Avalon in person.

I have had avalons for the last 10 years and when I bought my 13 Avalon limited v6 I did not have a chance to drive it being so new. WOW wish I had..
the 18 inch rims and low profile tires make it ride stiff and bumpy..

the Avalon limited hybrid has 17 inch rims and regular tires and rides smooth compared to mine..
