Toyota Motor Corporation Informative - Avalon Exterior Trim Colors vie with Scion
As a faithful Toyota customer for more than 20 years, the last two cars have been Avalons. When preparing to add a 2011 to my lengthy Toyota lineup I found that Toyota had abandoned any pretense of providing upscale paint colors and defaulted to some of the colors associated with the Scion line of cars. Scion is a great car, but not at the high end of the line like Avalon. When paying close to $40,000 for an auto, I would expect to have a choice of upscale colors provided in the Lexus line. For example the Sizzling Crimson mica may look great on a Scion (I doubt it, frankly) but looks like metallic rust on the Avalon. Silvers, brown and others are totally uninspiring on this auto. Its a shame such a great auto with great interior trim has to suffer from sub par paint. Guess all the Toyota trouble has clouded their vision when looking at this car.
