1997 Toyota Avalon Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 8 reviews
The 1997 Toyota Avalon saw a few changes from the previous year. The engine got a small boost in power, and the antenna went from a typical antenna to an in-glass one. Some more options were offered with the higher-end trim, including heated side mirrors.
The 1997 Toyota Avalon comes in two trim levels, the XL and the more luxurious XLS. Both trims come standard with a 3.0-liter, 200 horsepower V6 engine. The XL is nicely equipped, including an AM/FM/cassette sound system and cruise control. The XLS includes a few more niceties, like an upgraded sound system, alloy wheels, and a theft-deterrent system. The XLS also comes with option of front bucket seats or a three-passenger bench seat. Fuel efficiency is 21/31 mpg.
Drivers like the 1997 Toyota Avalon because it looks and feels expensive, with many owners comparing it to a Lexus. It also offers a very smooth ride and good handling. Drivers complain about a lot of wind noise, and the new radio antenna does not pick up a signal as well as it should. Other owners wish for a folding rear seat.
Even though the XL doesn't have the better sound system and the security system its still and extremely nice car.
