Used Toyota Avalon for Sale
About The Toyota Avalon
The Toyota Avalon sedan has been on the market since 1995, with the most recent fifth-generation model arriving for model year 2019. The redesigned sedan replaces the fourth-generation Avalon, which was in showrooms from 2013 to 2018.
The latest generation of Toyota's largest four-door passenger car sports a striking new design with sharp, angular headlights and a large grille, but both generations give buyers a choice between a robust 3.5L V6 engine or a 2.5L four-cylinder hybrid. If you are in the market for a sedan with an impressive mix of power (especially when choosing the 301-horsepower V6 in the fifth-generation models), as well as stand-out style, the Toyota Avalon should be on your short list!

Reviews for Toyota Avalon
Wonderful car for the price
I wanted a sedan with a sporty look, but also with sufficient interior space for 4-5 adults. I was also looking at an Accura TL, but that vehicle is everywhere. The redesigned Avalon looks unique and is not everywhere. It has all the "bells and whistles " - some of which I didn't even know existed. For example, the windshield wiper turns on when there is water on the windshield. Toyota has thought about all the little details. The Avalon gets great gas mileage, has a great repair record, drives smooth, and has incredible acceleration. GREAT VEHICLE!
- Interior Space: Look at it - it's a first class ride
- Reliability: Toyota has built that reputation deservedly by designing cars that last a long time.
- Ride and Handling: It handles like a sports car.
The Avalon Limited Hybrid pushes all the right buttons.
It's a full size car with plenty of room for 5 adults and plenty of trunk space even though I have a battery pack in the trunk since my car is a Hybrid. It's now getting 37mpg!!! It's a dream to drive, quiet, and responsive. For such a large car it handles extremely well, easily getting in and out of tight spaces. Fully loaded with technology I savef about $6,000 compared to the Lexus ES 300h and I still have all identical technology.
- Ride and Handling: It's quiet and absorbs all the road noises and bumps.
- Technology and Entertainment: I especially like the blind spot alert system.
- Fuel Economy: 37 mpg.
Great car low mileage, good trade-in
Great car low mileage, good trade-in our previous Avalon needed some costly repairs so I immediately went on CarMax and found this low mileage Avalon in Kenosha. I mediately called and told him to hold the car for me, drove up there test drove it and bought it on the spot. It’s got some great features that we didn’t have in our previously Avalon. My only complaint is there is more wind noise in the highway than my previous Avalon
