( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Toyota Avalon V6 has been redesigned with a much more youthful buyer in mind. Gone is the old-fashioned and somewhat stogy Avalon replaced by a much sleeker and dare we say sportier model that hopes to sell better to a larger demographic of buyers. We recently had the chance to test, drive and review the all new Avalon, and of course to see how fast it will go from 0-60 MPH in San Antonio, Texas. So is the Avalon ready to move out of the country club and into the mainstream? Check out this first drive review to find out.
2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara: Behind the Scenes of a TFLcar Off-Road Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara is certainly a
small, rugged and off-road worthy SUV. But we at TFLcar have already
reviewed the 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara...which is almost identical to the
2013 model. So in this video we pull back the curtain and take you behind
the scenes and show you how we produce a Fast Lane Car off-road mountain
review. If you are curious as to where we go to test our cars, Crossovers
and SUV and Jeeps: this video will show all of our muddy and dirty secrets.
2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid 0-60 MPH First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is one of the most
fuel efficient full-sized sedans that you can purchase today. Toyota says
that it gets a combined 40 mile per gallon rating. And while it does share
its 2.5L powertrain with the Toyota Camry Hybrid the rest of the car is all
new. Just like the regular Avalon, the Hybrid model has been updated to
reflect a more youthful target buyer. In this first drive review we of
course test the Camry Hybrid from 0-60 MPH to see if it is as speedy and
youthful as Toyota claims.
2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
2014 Lexus IS350 F-Sport First Drive 0-60 MPH Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Lexus IS350 F-Sport is a sporty 4-door
sedan that's more sport than luxury. The newest Lexus is taking dirt aim at
the M version of the BMW 3 series and the Audi S4. But there's a
difference. Unlike the German rivals the Lexus IS350 does not offer more horsepower when it
comes to the F-Sport model. Instead Lexus offers a sharper tuning in the
F-Sport version of the 2014 Lexus IS350. In another accurate, fun and
informative TFLcar 0-60 MPH review we find out if the F-Sport model is
worth of the German M and S competition.

The Avalon has been something of a caricature for Toyota since it wafted
onto the stage in 1994. The stretched Camry was low on soul, devoid of
style and soft of spring. In short, it was the Buick that wouldn't leave
you stranded. Since then Toyota has struggled to divine a mission for their
full size sedan, a problem complicated by the re-invigoration of the large
sedan market by the American brands. In hopes of resurrecting the Avalon's
sales numbers, which have slid to 25% of their 2000 year shipments, Toyota
has injected something hitherto unseen in an Avalon: style. Is it enough?
Before we dive right into the Avalon, it's important to cover the
competition. Back when the Chrysler LHS and Buick Park Avenue roamed the
land, the Avalon's competition was easy to identify. Nearly 20 years later
those customers are in a nursing home without a driver's license and Toyota
is looking for new hunting grounds (I can kid because I owned an LHS.) Now
we have the moderately successful Chrysler 300, the larger-than-ever
Taurus, a new Impala that doesn't make me want to put my eyes out and a
revised Hyundai Azera trying to beat Toyota at their own game.
But wait, I'm forgetting one. The "elephant in the room" that is the Lexus
ES 350. You see, the kind of shopper that needs a new car and immediately
thinks "Toyota Avalon" is far more likely to cross shop the Lexus ES than
the gangsta 300 or the Impala. After spending a week in the ES and the
Avalon fraternal twins back-to-back this comparison is even more valid.
Now in its fourth incarnation, the Avalon has finally developed a sense of
style. While the "I'm a bigger Camry" look is still going on, Toyotas has
managed to inject some creases and curves that made my 33 year old eyes
take a second look. It's not as visually exciting as the Chrysler 300, but
Toyota's styling efforts look better thought out than the Impala's 11/10ths
Cruze grille. Car makers love making their vehicles "instantly
identifiable" as a member of their brand. Translation: they make them all
look the same.
Thankfully Toyota ditched the Camry "quotation mark" shaped tail lamps for
a more elegant rear end treatment. The new rump features more chrome than
any other Toyota product, dual Exhaust
tips and tail lamps that wrap well around the side. The engineers stretched
the Avalon's greenhouse over the trunk to increase the visual length of the
car, a trick that worked on me until I looked at the spec sheet. At 195
inches, the Avalon is 6-inches longer than the Camry, but it's several
inches shorter than the Chrysler, Chevy and Ford. Since the ES and Avalon
are now twins separated at birth most of the dimensions are common except
that the Avalon gets a bigger booty (and more trunk space in the process)
and (oddly enough) has a lower ride height making it visually more

2014 Toyota Avalon XLE Premium Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/avalon/2014/prices/?id=32972 The 2014
Toyota Avalon is a big, roomy, fuel efficient car with some nice luxury
amenities. The Avalon has been on sale in the U.S. for almost 20 years and
it has never been a very stylish car. Well that all changed with the most
recent update last year. Now the Avalon has a very sleek and aerodynamic
look that will set the tone for other Toyota vehicles as evident with the
The 2014 Toyota Avalon is a full-sized family car that is priced between
$31,340 - $39,650 with the model tested here coming in at $33,195. The
Avalon is a very light-weight vehicle in the class of portly large sedans.
That helps with not only fuel economy but also with performance. The 3.5
liter V-6 engine makes 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. or
torque. Fuel economy is 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.
Being a full-sized car, the Avalon has a ton of interior space especially
for the rear passengers. The driver's seat is wrapped in leather with 8-way
adjustable controls. Comfort is certainly not a problem in the Avalon. The
Intelligent Touch Center Console controls the stereo and climate controls.
The only downside is the small touchscreen. Ergonomically the control and
features are easy to find.

What I have to say about the 2013 Avalon: Out with the old and in with the
new, this quote can be directly used toward the new 2013 Toyota Avalon.
Toyota's main approach was to entice younger buyers into the Avalon instead
of the old ones. The previous generation was quite boring as some people
would call it as it had no sporty flavor, that it's competitors had.
However, this has changed for 2013 a new stiffed up suspension and better
driving dynamics, this one is way more fun to drive with still having some
of that floaty boaty taste. The interior is very rich looking with
stitching almost everywhere, as I was very surprised by it. Everything is
ergonomically correct in the car and the touch sensitive buttons used for
almost all of your basic functions is actually one of the best I have ever
used. All in all very great car from Toyota I really recommend to buy it
for a Full Size car for 2013. Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
