Keyes Toyota Sedan Buying Guide

sedan buying guide

Toyota has perfected the formula for top-selling sedans (so much so that two of them are the first and third best-selling sedans in America) without their cars seeming formulaic. There’s something at Keyes Toyota for nearly everyone, and our selection of new Toyota sedans is especially strong.

2019 Toyota Corolla

2019 Toyota Corolla details

  • Drive Line: FWD
  • 132 hp four-cylinder engine (XLE, LE, SE, XSE)
  • 140 hp four-cylinder engine (LE Eco)
  • Transmissions; Six-speed manual or CVT

The 2019 Toyota Corolla is the third-best selling sedan in the US. In its most recent iteration, it has a new-found sense of style. It also has 97.1 cubic feet of cabin space, which belies its compact classification. All the hallmarks of the Toyota brand — fuel economy, low total cost of ownership, and legendary reliability — are on full display here, making it obvious why this small sedan is still going strong after 50 years. Toyota Safety Sense comes standard (as it does on the other models listed here), and the five-star NHTSA safety rating is a nice add-on.

2018 Toyota Camry

The 2018 Toyota Camry is a perennial best-seller, not just here at your Los Angeles area Toyota dealership but worldwide. It recently received an upgraded Toyota Entune 3.0 infotainment system with a better UI, a redesign that renders it more aggressive and sporty-looking, and the new TNGA platform. But it also performs better than before thanks to a pair of more powerful engine choices; the Toyota Camry XSE V6 Sport is a standout thanks to its ideal blend of power and tech features.

2018 Toyota Camry details:

  • I4 Engine: 2.5L / 178 hp / 186 lb-ft torque
  • V6 Engine: 3.5L / 301 hp / 267 lb-ft torque
  • Transmission: Eight-speed automatic

2018 Toyota Avalon

2018 Toyota Avalon details:

  • 3.5L V6 engine
  • 301 horsepower, 267 lb-ft torque
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • FWD drivetrain

The 2018 Toyota Avalon blurs the line between an everyday drive and a luxury sedan. It’s fully redesigned for 2019, taking full advantage of a longer wheelbase and a sharp sense of style. The interior has touches we’d expect from a car much more expensive, including Active Noise Cancellation, premium audio, subscription-based Toyota Safety Connect®, and more luxury features than we have space for here. If you want to reward your hard work and thrift with a ride that’s surprisingly posh, this is your car.

Toyota cars used to be compared to appliances because they were functional, reliable, and a bit anodyne. At Keyes Toyota, we can attest first hand that those days are far behind us. Visit us at 5855 Van Nuys Blvd in Van Nuys, CA to test drive a new Toyota sedan!
