For 2013, Toyota's Avalon sedan is even more amazing than ever before. The large executive cruiser is based around an all-new platform shared with Lexus' ES and this shows everywhere you look.
In America, the Avalon is available from $30,990 plus destination and is equipped with a 200 hp 2.5-liter engine. That might sound like a good deal, but wait until you hear what they sell in the United Arab Emirates. We did a little checking and found the 2013 Avalon is available there from AED 128,000, or the equivalent of $34,850 at today's exchange rate.

What's so awesome about that? The UAE Avalon comes standard with more kit and… a 3.5-liter V6 that offers 273 horsepower. Sunroof, automatic air-con, wood trim, halogen lights and 17-inch wheels are all standard.

We recommend you guys watch this test drive by Arab Motors TV for no other reason than to see just how good a white Avalon looks in the desert!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
