On the prowl for an opulent sedan? Consider a used 2016 Toyota Avalon XLE.
Powered by a 3.5-liter V6, this Avalon produces 268 hp and 248 pound-feet of torque. The EPA rated it at 21 mpg city/30 highway. While the ferocious engine may be purring away, the cabin is nearly silent due to sound-absorbing materials and an acoustic windshield. These measures also deaden wind and road noise.
Driving the Avalon is an absolute pleasure, thanks to its MacPherson struts and dual-link rear suspension. Pillow ball joints in back and anti-roll bars also play an important part. The steering is smooth at higher speeds and responsive around tight corners. According to a review by J.D. Power, this sedan’s performance is agile, yet refined.
The XLE trim level comes with a cornucopia of cabin features including a Display Audio sound system and 7-inch touchscreen. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and lavish woodgrain accents give the Avalon a luxury-level ambiance.
