Martha Stewart Likes 2013 Toyota Avalon

During her "American Made" event in New York City, Martha Stewart shared her views on the new Toyota Avalon luxury sedan. Why? Because Toyota was the official sponsor of the even.
But interestingly, Martha actually visited the Toyota factory in Kentucky where the new Avalon is assembled. She says she finds the finished product roomy and well built. She does know a thing or two about television, cooking and house redecorating, but does she know cars?

All in all, when you’re a business woman worth $600 million (in 2011), it’s hard to imagine you do your own driving, or own a Toyota sedan.

With a bulging chromed lower grille at the front and and a sloping rear, it’s clear Toyota was trying a four-door coupe design. The car is smaller than the 2012 model, but somehow also roomier.

The 2013 Avalon brings more space for the passengers, both in the front and the back. Toyota also says they’ve improved the ride comfort and the handling of the sedan. It now features three distinctive driving modes (Normal, Eco and Sport) that change throttle and steering feel.
