1999 Toyota Avalon Overview

The 1999 Toyota Avalon saw very few changes for the model year. A new Avalon was in the works for the following year. By 1999, the Avalon had been on the market for five years, and was beginning to make its name as an affordable luxury sedan.

The 1999 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.

Drivers appreciate the 1999 Toyota Avalon’s good fuel economy, smooth ride, excellent handling, and wide array of options to chose from. Many owners praise the Avalon’s roomy interior, including plenty of cargo space. Owners have few complaints, but many find the styling a little bland and some even suggest that it is an “old person’s car.”
