It looks like Ford Fusion grille

I saw one in town several times last evening. I never expected to be impressed with it in person but I was. the skinny nostrils and gaping maw are much more attractive outside a static image.

Most of these people would rather get an American car which is unreliable..typical
Alex Marks
the front grill is terrible, the one at the bottom

Could you imagine a twenty-something driving this?  Because I'd certainly buy it...

A few days ago someone in this new Avalon drove past me while i was walking in a parking lot. The sound of the engine was delicious. Smooth, silky, throaty. Obviously the Avalon buyer prefers a more restrained style, same reason some folks prefer a GMC over an ostentatious vulgar Escalade -

"The Old Person's Toyota" -- going to take more than a questionable design change to shake the Oldie Image.
Clint Carney
New charger all the way

The flanks are still very bland.

We have this car, i love it

My parents have an Avalon (the last version), and it's a great car. Sure, it's not the most exciting thing in the world, but if buy one the day after your retirement party that will be the last time you'll have to walk into a dealer's showroom for the rest of your life (insert unintended acceleration joke here). Seriously though... Great cars that do everything their intended audience needs.

Boring....copycat...bad copycat....jst sumn else unnecessarily polluting our world

I think I'd rather have a new Impala based on looks. The new Avalon is styled, but not stylish. Impala is stylish. But the Avalon is likely a better choice for the consumer. Maybe a different color though.
Chip Gorra
When they make a Toyota with enough headroom for American adults, I might consider one: there is no excuse for a car this large to have to scrunch down to sit in it.
Bradford Mahler
looks like the lower fascia is the grill from the Taurus...
Frankiko Ly
Yea, senior citizens and retirees loves it!
Tim Lucas
Zzzzzz
James Procell
Not saying its a bad design, but it still looks bland to me, sort of like a bloated Camry. The new interior, however, is quite nice.
