The 2015 Toyota Avalon is Now Available in Boulder

Drivers in the market for a midsized sedan have likely given the 2015 Toyota Avalon a look. After all, the Avalon possesses several standard and available features and amenities such as:

  • Automatic climate control
  • Rearview camera system
  • Alloy wheels

While those features are all nice, drivers who opt for the 2015 Toyota Avalon without taking a look at the 2015 Honda Accord first are going to have some serious buyer’s remorse once they see what they’ve missed. The 2015 Honda Accord Sedan beats the Toyota on price, fuel economy, safety, and outmatches it on available features.

To begin, the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan costs thousands less than the comparably equipped Toyota Avalon XLE, at an MSRP of just $22,105.* In fact, Toyota even makes you pay extra for floor mats for your new vehicle—Honda includes that nicety at no additional charge.

In addition to an affordable price tag at the dealership, the Accord can save you money at the pump as well. The 2015 Accord Sedan boasts better gas mileage than the Avalon—24 mpg city/34 mpg highway** (4-cylinder sedan models with 6-speed manual transmission) compared to the Avalon’s 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway.

On government safety tests, the Accord Sedan once again comes out on top. On recent NHTSA safety tests, the Honda Accord scored 5 out of 5 stars in the side pole crash test, compared to the Avalon’s 4 out of 5 stars in the same test. When you are in the market for a family sedan, safety is often a top priority. When it comes to safety, you can’t go wrong with the Accord.
