1996 Toyota Avalon Overview

The Toyota Avalon had only been on the market a year by the 1996 model year, and consequently did not see any significant changes. The Toyota Avalon is known for its spacious interior and has Toyota’s typically conservative styling.

The 1996 Toyota Avalon comes in two trim levels, the XL and the more luxurious XLS. Both trims come standard with a 3.0-liter, 192 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 20/28 mpg.

The 1996 Avalon is popular among drivers for its roomy interior, excellent handling, and high-end appointments. Owners say it is a pleasure to drive and feels like a much more expensive car. Many drivers complain about excessive wind noise, and that the cup holders are too small for 20-ounce bottles.
