Used Car: 2010 Toyota Avalon Review

Review Last Updated: 7/10/12

Reviewers said the 2010 Toyota Avalon feels like a luxury car on the inside and boasts a comfortable ride. When you add in its high safety scores and strong reliability rating, the Avalon is one of the best 2010 large cars.

The 2010 Toyota Avalon is ranked:

The 2010 Toyota Avalon returns with much of what made it successful in previous model years. The Avalon’s higher trims sport a luxurious cabin that seemed more like a Lexus than a Toyota to reviewers. When it was new, reviewers raved about the spacious, high-quality interior. Reviewers were especially impressed with the reclining rear seats for their comfort and roominess. The tradeoff to the Avalon’s posh back seat, however, is that the seat backs don’t fold down to increase cargo space. The 2010 Avalon is quite similar to the 2009 model, so you might want to take a look at older models to save money.

The Avalon isn’t for the driving enthusiast, but reviewers felt that it had adequate passing power. Compared with other 2010 large cars, the Avalon also offers good fuel economy. The Avalon performed well in crash tests, so if safety is a concern, the Avalon is a good choice. Thanks to its solid reliability rating, the Avalon should have fewer repairs than a number of large used cars.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking for a car that offers good performance and a stylish design, as well as excellent cabin electronics and safety scores, the 2011 Ford Taurus is worth checking out. When it was new, reviewers were impressed with the Taurus’ well-rounded performance and comfortable interior, while a good reliability score makes the Taurus a sound choice among used cars.

You should also consider the 2011 Buick LaCrosse if you’re looking for a stylish full-size sedan with safety ratings that are just as good as the Avalon’s. The Avalon offers a slightly better reliability score, but reviewers approved of the LaCrosse’s spacious cabin and quiet ride, which makes it more luxurious than a number of used large cars.
