The Avalon’s sculpted styling, luxuriously modern interior, and surprising agility give even pricier rivals a run for their money. A 268-hp 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic are smooth and responsive. An efficient hybrid version is also offered, pairing a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor and sending 200 hp through a CVT. For long-distance cruising in style and comfort, the Avalon is hard to beat—and its dashing looks will charm more than just the AARP set.
