2001 Toyota Avalon Overview

The 2001 Avalon was only the second model of the car’s second generation, and therefore, the full-sized sedan saw no significant changes.

The 2001 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.

Drivers love the 2001 Avalon for its extremely comfortable ride and excellent handling. Many owners compare the Avalon to a luxury brand car like the Lexus. Drivers also like the wide array of available options and the spacious interior. Complaints are mostly trivial and/or cosmetic, with many finding the Avalon to have bland styling both inside and out.
