Recently tested by BCDemocratOnline, they said the 2013 Avalon “is a Lexus by another name.”

The flagship sedan gained Toyota’s Keen Look and Under Priority design styles, using sharper forms both at the front and at the back, while its body got resculpted and is now more sleeker than ever.

But the interior is where you’ll get mesmerized - leather upholstery, nicely sculpted dashboard and seats, soft touch materials and Toyota’s latest technology will make you feel like you’re in a Lexus.

The Avalon is powered by a standard 268 hp V6 gasoline engine mated to an electronically-controlled six-speed gearbox, achieving 21 mpg in the city and 31 on the highway.
