2014 Toyota Avalon Limited Review By Carey Russ +video

I drove both the V6 and Hybrid when they were introduced to the automotive press in late 2012, and spent a week with a well-equipped Hybrid Limited partway through 2013. Changes for 2014 are minimal — all models get a standard backup camera and a three-blink turn signal mode. I’ve just finished a week with a 2014 V6 Limited, with the Technology Package of Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, automatic high beams, and the Pre-Collision System suite of safety equipment. With standard blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring, HID headlamps, power front seats, upgraded leather (leather is standard in all models), and both heating and cooling in front and heat in the rear seat cushions plus a premium navigation system, JBL audio system, and the Entune suite of connectivity applications in its spacious, contemporary, upscale interior, Toyota’s flagship treads very closely to Lexus territory. On the road, it’s as smooth, comfortable, and quiet as expected from a luxury sedan, and is actually enjoyable at a brisk pace on the scenic route. No, it won’t be challenging any real sports sedans, but it is far more engaging than any previous Avalon. Power was never an issue, nor was excessive thirst.
