2016 Toyota Avalon Is Still A Good Car And Still Not Exciting

Wes grew up around cars at the family business. He makes no attempt to hide his love of early 90s GM products, and still repents selling his sweet '94 Pontiac Sunbird a few years back.

The Toyota Avalon is a top seller for Toyota. It’s a good car. People like it. It has a hybrid version. All these positive things can be said.

But the buildup to the 2016 Avalon reveal at the Chicago Auto Show seemed like a bit much. The car barely changed at all, so I’m not sure why Toyota had to hide it under a sheet. Plus, standard photos had already appeared online prior to the unveiling.

The upgrades for 2016 include a sportier setup for better control, two new suspensions and dampers for comfort. But as for the exterior, I honestly can’t see what changed. The grille is apparently larger than the already large grille the car previously sported.

Maybe Toyota just really wanted to have that auto show feel with the sheet reveal. But it probably wasn’t that necessary. See what you think with the photos below.
