Power Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon worse.
"Its a little smaller and lighter and the 4 cly is adequate with the right transmission and the 6 can be close to Avalon power with a lighter car for it to accelerate."
Front Seats Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon worse.
"Personal preference - size and shape. A few Avalon s came with a 3 passenger old school bench. Most Avalons have normal 2 front buckets, more often leather with many power adjustments though certain Auras have that too and ones without it are pretty good and comfortable for a normal size driver."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon better.
"Avalon has a huge backseat and trunk though an Auru is an ok average size in both those for most drivers."
Would Buy Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon better.
"I am a little bit less of a risk taker and all things otherwise equal ( previous owners maintanance) most Models and Years Toyotas are the lowest risk of any cars for long term reliability and low ownership lifetime costs."
