Best Full-sized sedan
2013 Toyota Avalon
MSRP: $30,990

Before this model year, the Avalon was basically a really nice Camry. It was the prototypical grandfather's car that claimed a load of luxuries, but couched them all in drab, rigid plastic. Oh, and it just soaked up gas like a garage chamois.

For 2013, however, Toyota put the Avalon on a Lexus ES frame, dropped the mileage to a combined 35 miles per gallon and spruced up the interior with some new tech toys and more luxurious detail. The pindrop-silent ride remains, but the Avalon feels just a little younger.
