5. 2013 Toyota Avalon V6

In AutoGuide’s first-ever Battle of the Boots the Toyota Avalon comes in fifth place. This quite-large-but-curiously-still-midsize sedan delivers an even 16 cubic feet of trunk space. Hybrid models are slightly less voluminous at just 14 cubic feet. Blame the car’s energy-storing nickel-metal-hydride battery pack for eating up some of the available space.

The Avalon’s big claim to fame is a stylish new body, which was just introduced for the 2013 model year. This car, along with the Scion FR-S, is proof the company is delivering on President Akio Toyoda’s commitment to sell more exciting, emotional vehicles.

Behind its bold new grille opening sits a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 268 horsepower with 248 lb-ft of torque. Naturally, hybrid versions are considerably less powerful but they deliver some damn-impressive fuel-economy numbers. According to the EPA, electrified Avalons should be able to stretch a gallon of regular-grade gasoline 40 miles in city driving and 39 miles on the highway.

    Who the fuck cares about the size in cubic feets ?!?! FFS !
    This review becomes absolutely irrelevant by using that obsolete metric system!

    You dumb fuck! The metric system is the standard everywhere in the world except in the U.S. Your ignorance is disgusting!

    You are both about as ignorant as one can get. Cubit “Feet” is not metric. It’s English. Did either of you ever graduate the third grade? Apparently you spent your educational years picking your noses and learning colorful metaphors.

    Varga: isn’t that a Hungarian name???? If so you come from a rather unique background and the best you can do it use language to show your ‘low class and degraded vernacular skills, shame on you!

    The CVT can be a sporty transmission, if not a bit more maintenance-intensive–remember, no shifting means more time in the powerband, great for that 80-120 passing acceleration on the highway. Nissan’s Xtronic is a whole lot better than the hunk of junk Dodge was using in the Caliber, if that’s what you’re worried about.

    They’re all so ugly and look like hatchbacks. There was a time when sedans had class and distinction. I hope it returns.
