2000 Toyota Avalon Overview

The Toyota Avalon was redesigned for the 2000 model year, getting many high-end touches like a wood-trimmed interior with leather accents. The new Avalon came with an upgraded engine, roomier interior, and many more high end options to choose from, putting Toyota’s full-sized sedan on par with more expensive luxury brands like the Lexus.

The 2000 Toyota Avalon comes in two trim levels, the XL and the more luxurious XLS. Both trims come standard with a 3.0-liter, 210 horsepower V6 engine. The XL is nicely equipped, including cruise control, antilock breaks, and a number of other comfort features. The XLS includes a few more niceties, like an upgraded sound system, alloy wheels, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Fuel efficiency is 21/29 mpg.

Toyota fans speak highly of the 2000 Avalon. They are especially excited about the high-end options, like seat memory and automatic climate control. They also appreciate the car’s reliability, excellent handling, and very comfortable ride. Most of the complaints are about the appearance of the car, which many find to be boring and even outright unattractive. Many also find the 2000 Avalon boring to drive, although it is not meant for drivers who want a lot of interaction with their cars.
