1998 Toyota Avalon

The only change for the 1998 Toyota Avalon was the inclusion of front-seat-mounted side airbags as a standard feature. Otherwise, Toyota’s roomy, Camry-based full-sized sedan stayed much the same.  

The 1998 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-seater bench. Fuel efficiency is 21/31 mpg.

The 1998 Toyota Avalon is popular for its smooth, expensive-feeling ride, Toyota reliability, and good gas mileage. Drivers also appreciate the generous amount of leg and cargo room. Many drivers find wind noise to be a problem, and they also complain that the sound system quality could be better.
