The Toyota Avalon occupies a special spot in the full-size sedan segment, for it is one of the most affordable compared to its high-priced competition. And what makes it that much more special is the fact that it offers a wide variety of comfort and convenience features making it worth every penny you spend on it. That said, the niche premium full-size market has a lot of competition with the Mazda6 proving to be a fitting rival to the Avalon. Let’s have a look at what makes the 2021 Avalon better than the Mazda6.
