The Avalon contains just about every piece of 2012 motoring technology you could hopefully wish for within its price category, all beautifully and sensibly laid out.
The car is both roomy and comfortable, with loads of leg and head room for five and drives smoothly and quietly,
The Avalon comes complete with every safety factor and returning excellent fuel consumption averages for a car of its size and power.
There are some rumblings in the trade reviews on the Avalon's trunk capacity, which at 14.4 cubic feet, could be considered disproportionate to the car's size, as far as its carrying capacity. For example if five adults were to go off on a fairly long holiday or even a short run to the airport, the chances of all their luggage fitting in the trunk would be slim.
There is no rear seats folding ability with the 2012 Toyota Avalon
In the same vein, the design of the Avalon's trunk would further hamper loading too much into it because, despite the fact that it is relatively long ,it is very narrow, meaning that suitcases could only be placed in it lengthways and not width-ways.
The Avalon has been known to noticeably lean in to bends as a result of it's softer than normal suspension.
Toyota have omitted to include individual reading lights for their front seat driver and passenger.
