"New Car Review: 2018 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium" By John Heilig

New Car Review: 2018 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium; I guess for old timers like myself, conservative styling is the way to go. Both my wife and I liked the Toyota Avalon particularly because of its muted styling. Oh sure, it has a few features that are over the top, but the overall impression is one of sedateness. ...

Car Review: 2018 Toyota C-HR Road Test and Review By Steve Purdy
