Toyota Avalon 2008 Overview

Toyota cars are known for being comfortable and reliable. This has probably prompted the Japanese automaker into constantly looking for ways to improve on previous versions and models. Due to the success of the Toyota Camry which has been always sold out quickly, the Toyota Avalon was launched as a full-size car (actually Toyota's largest front-wheel-drive sedan) within an affordable range to continue this success.

One of the most popular throughout its lifespan is the Toyota Avalon 2008 model. The 3rd generation Avalon car comes in four trims and an option of a 6 cylinder engine or V6 engine.

To add to what the base trim has, there's also electroluminescent gauges and 16-inch alloy wheels while the XLS trim comes equipped with auto-dimming rearview and side mirrors, soft suspensions, woodgrain interior, soft leather seats, heated mirrors, power front seats, and a sunroof - to add to what was listed in the XL.

The Toyota Avalon 2008 Touring trim comes with all the XL's features but adds HID headlights and 17-inch wheels. Even more surprisingly, the Limited trim is where all the amazing features are. From the power rear sunshade and 12-speaker sound system to the power-adjustable seats, cruise control, satellite radio and a navigation system. So if you're on a budget, the base trim isn't a bad idea. The most popular is the XLS version but we'll advise you go for Limited trim if you can afford to.

The Toyota Avalon 2008 comes with the much-upgraded transmission. It improves by carrying a 6-speed automatic transmission. The car is manufactured with a 3.5-liter V6 engine (common in the front-wheel drive) that delivers 248 ib-feet of torque and 268 horsepower. In contrast, the 3.5-liter 6 cylinder engine is available in the four-wheel drive and probably puts out a similar amount of horsepower. But it's common knowledge that the V6 engine is more powerful. So if you seek speed, go for that option.

The Avalon 2008 doesn't do badly in fuel economy ratings that are19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
