2003 Toyota Avalon Overview

The 2003 Toyota Avalon got a small makeover from the previous year, sporting a new front and rear end, new gauges, and a few more high-end options for the XLS, including a DVD navigation system with remote control and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The 2003 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 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 21/29 mpg.

Drivers like the 2003 Toyota Avalon for its excellent handling and luxury-car-like feel. They also appreciate the generous amount of leg room and trunk space the car offers, and say that for a car of its class, it gets good gas mileage. Many owners find the dashboard gauges and radio display to be difficult to read in the sun, and others find the styling to be too conservative.
