Overall:

I never drove 2014 so I cannot comment on it. I did buy a 2012 and in my humble opinion this is best sedan you can buy if you want reliability, comfort, safety and longevity. This is my fourth Avalon. I read somewhere that the car that has the most high mileage cars on the road is the Avalon. Enough said!

2014 Toyota Avalon Review
Scott says:
Certainly more sportier lookin than previous body model. Lesser gas milage than previous body style(Even with ECO mode on). New look and better stone grey color with blue leather accents. Sound system sounds great, but window buttons rattle at nominal listening levels. Lots of fake chrome accents peeling off. Seats are comfy front and back and nice touch with heated seats all the way around. Hate the climate control up/down buttons as they take forever to adjust and hate all the dash buttons in general as they are touch sensitve buttons where you have to take your eyes off the road to make sure you are actually pressing a button. Also, trunk would be more useful with a bigger opening. Its always a tight fit to pack anything that is medium sized like camping gear because the opening is much smaller than before. Also, lots of door scuff marks on lower plastic door panels. It seems Toyota tried to make the car more sporty with slow paddle shifting and shrunk it from its giant predecessor. Save your money and buy a Camry!! Its bigger all the way around. Also, Toyota PCS has a recall, so they disabled it because it triggers with expansion joints on the highway. So its a useless feature if you want autonomous stopping. I should have considered a Subaru for that safety feature, I like the visual appearance of the car, but seriously let down with annoyances for a $42,000+ vehicle. Toyota is simply overated now.

Back Seats Ranked 2014 Lexus GS 350 worse.
"The Avalon had more room for back seat passengers even though the Lexus has a smaller trunk"
Would Buy Ranked 2014 Lexus GS 350 worse.
"Similar cars in many ways since Toyota makes Lexus. Even though I am unhappy with the Avalon, Lexus is not worth the extra $20K."

Toyota Avalon 2014 Review — I moved from a '08 ES 350 to the Avalon recently after deciding against the '14 ES350. In my eyes, the Avalon looks better from every angle and test driving it sold me. The car's comfortable, quiet, and has all the performance I'll ever need. I have Michelin tires, and while the ride is just a bit firmer than my old ES, I've found it to be comfortable over a variety of different pavements. The secureresponsive handling of this car more than offsets whatever small compromise in ride comfort was made. Again, early impressions, but I think it's a winner. One thing: I was surprised at how much darker the window tint on all but the windshield is. Compromises visibility, but I do have The BSM

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quiet and upscale interior with roomy seating front and rear; large trunk; above-average fuel eco

Cons: Ride quality might be too firm for traditional Avalon buyers; cumbersome setup process for Entune.
