Drivers shopping for a new vehicle know there are a lot of model types to choose between. From trucks to minivans and sedans to SUVs, there are vehicles on the market nowadays to meet everyone’s needs. Those who choose a sedan have to decide which size group is best for them. Compact sedans are best for busy traffic driving, and midsize sedans are often best for small families. This time our team here at Serra Toyota will be focusing on two popular full-size sedans on the market today - the 2016 Toyota Avalon and the 2016 Buick LaCrosse. These full-size sedans are perfect for someone looking for a more spacious, luxury ride.
Both vehicles are similarly priced and offer a lot of the same features. When it comes to the fuel economy, these vehicles offer mostly the same efficiency. The 2016 Avalon gets an average 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, whereas the 2016 LaCrosse gets 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These vehicles both offer seating for five passengers to travel comfortably.
