Good thing Toyota (and Chevy) finally gave their large sedans a younger look.

Makes you wonder why Toyota didn't do the same with the new Camry.
USDM Camry

ASEAN & Russian Camry



Speaking of targeting the young (or young at heart)
I want to see a comparison between the new Avalon and the new Azera.

Honestly I like Avalon better than Azera. I like the body shape better. The only thing I'm not sure about is the grill and that mouthing gap. Otherwise Avalon looks moderner than Azera in my opinion.

By modern Toyota standards, the Avalon looks good.
For me, the odd thing about the Avalon (aside from the large Sonata Hybrid style large lower front grill) is its profile, it looks like it was designed to be a smaller car but had its roofline raised and wheelbase lengthened at the last minute.


The Azera actually has a 1 inch longer wheelbase than the Avalon (112in vs 111in), but it manages to avoid that LWB stretched look.

The Azera is definitely a much more comprehensive design all around, but this new Avalon is nevertheless the best Toyota design I saw in years.

The Assera has a very nice shape, an evolution of the Sonata's - but it looks like they had quite a bad argument about how many damn lines to cross the nose of it with.

totally agree

the Avalon lines seems small as one sheet of metal i myself prefer this design language than those of Hyundai lot of lines

and may this thing that make it as if stretched in the side profile

Avalon also is also much larger inside, IIRC. Avalon's shorter hood and longer cabin makes for a roomier interior than the Camry. Azera is nearly identical inside to Sonata, IIRC.

I think Toyota needs to be applauded on this car. As the picture accurately depicts, the other one was geriatric. This one is modern and stylish. I can actually see myself in this car. I will predict that this car sells 10X what the old one did.

In terms of comparing it to the Azerea - I think it's a very fair comparison quite honestly. I do think the Toyota will win the sales race based upon brand alone. In terms of performance, I'm one of the rare ones that am not a fan of the Sonota (but I love the Elantra)...just a personal preference thing I guess....I do adore the Optima though (so it's not a fanboy thing against the K2).
