I have always fancied owning one and came close to it while living in the US. I was told by a colleague of that time Avalon can seat 3 in the front row. I believe one of the engine options develops close to 220 BHP. Always loved its posture and the way it drives on highways.

Avalons are pretty decent cars,,, loads of space, a different interior compared to the standard toyotas.
However this import is the earlier variant.new variant looks much better.

this is not the latest variant.. new one looks like the current gen. camry

yes some of these featured the bench seat style in the front with a column mounted gearshift ( auto )

the main reason for toyota to launch this car in the US was to penetrate sales of the American cars like the LINCOLN and ford crown vic. and the mercury grand marquis.
