2015 Toyota Avalon Review
The cabin is quiet, made of quality materials and with an abundance of leg room for front and rear-seat passengers. The trunk also offers a huge capacity of a 16 cubic foot with a wide opening capable to fit huge grocery bags. Hybrid has a smaller capacity trunk, a 14 cubic foot due to its electric components, what is a small sacrifice compared to an aim it achieves. Seats done in leather upholstery are smooth and luxurious, among the best in large sedans. Touch switches are sensitive and highly responsive.
