What do you think?



  1. Drive Arabia why some times’ i feel you are old dated my neighbourhood here i KSA owned one from about a mounth

  2. i can say the car levels are soundly priced with only 28k between the top to lowest trim. I hope they start to have such pricing strategy to other models such as Rav 4. Nice car nice engine nice design and won all comparative reviews against Azera and Maxima 🙂

    • Some might disagree with me here but you can also consider the full options 2013 Accord Sport 3.5ltr in this category and the Avalon still seems to stay on top.

      And hope they include this black leather interior trim in the line up locally as the our dealer always has this tendency to settle for Beige interior alone.

  3. Saw this ride 2 weeks back in Abu Shagara (Sharjah Market) It’s a beauty.

  4. looks very close to the equivalent lexus

    looks decent for sure

  5. awesome car
    real luxury

  6. I might be wrong but isnt the starting price cheaper than the outgoing model.

  7. Will it be updated in the Ultimate Car buyer Guide ?

  8. the car’s front looks confusing to me,,,,, kind of ugly to be honest

  9. ..and finally Toyota has woken up to the reality that only brand name cannot keep itself at the top with it’s dull laggard looks on all it’s cars. The stylish Avalon could mean – the Japanese has taken serious note of the Korean competition!
    Really refreshing Avalon. But yes, expensive !

  10. if the starting price is AED 128k,,,, then a honda acoord v 6 which is 135k looks pretty lame
