2016 Toyota Avalon vs 2016 Nissan Maxima
When you hear the term flagship, you might think it would be a term to represent the most popular model on a lineup. In reality, it is a designation given to the top-of-the-line vehicle on a lineup. Toyota’s flagship, the Avalon, is not as popular as the Camry, but it is bigger, more powerful and comes with a multitude of luxurious features. We wanted to see how it stacked up to another brand’s flagship, so we decided to compare the 2016 Toyota Avalon vs 2016 Nissan Maxima.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Avalon
Taking a look at the table above it becomes clear that each vehicle has its specific advantages. Looking down to the third row, the Maxima clearly has a major edge in standard horsepower, offering an extra 100 HP. But backtracking to the top, we think the Avalon’s immense efficiency advantages far outweigh that fact. Through city streets, the Avalon utilizes nearly 5 whole litres less per 100 kilometres, and even on the highway it achieves superior economy in the way of 1.8 l/100km.
If you’re looking for an efficient vehicle, then the Avalon is definitely for you. And while the Maxima may take the cake in standard power, the Avalon can be upgraded to a more powerful engine. It will no longer have the superior efficiency ratings, but more power can be had. Efficiency isn’t the only advantage the Avalon has, however, as it also offers an extra 3.4 cubic feet of passenger volume within the cabin, allowing you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable.
