Best Toyotas for Senior Drivers

Very few people look forward to getting older. You have to plan things around needs you might not have been able to previously anticipate, such needing a vehicle that is easier to get in and out of, a vehicle that has more driver comfort and less cargo and passenger space (all your kids are grown up and moved out now, right?), or even a vehicle that assists in recognizing dangers that might be overlooked. Don’t worry, though – Consumer Reports published a list of its recommendations for seniors, and Toyota represented well. Three of our models made the cut, which is more than any other auto manufacturer in consideration. Check it.

2015 Toyota Avalon

Toyota Avalon

Overall, the Toyota Avalon is widely considered Toyota’s entry-level luxury sedan. It offers an excellent array of features and cabin materials that simply add to the car’s elegance and sophistication.

What Consumer Reports says: “Touring models add a touch more control to the suspension and handling without ruining the comfortable ride.”

Toyota Camry

Buyers looking for a reliable, easy to drive and fuel-efficient sedan can’t go wrong with America’s best selling midsize car, the Toyota Camry. The controls of the Camry are simple to use and are within easy reach of the driver.

What Consumer Reports says: “Long known for having a comfortable ride and quiet cabin, the Camry also has easy access and good visibility.”

Toyota Highlander

A day out with Grandma and Grandpa is exactly the kind of thing that the Toyota Highlander was designed to do. It has the space to bring several grandchildren anywhere they want to go as well as the space to bring home the spoils a day with grandparents are supposed to have.

What Consumer Reports says: “All three generations of the (Toyota) Highlander have easy access, plenty of glass for good vision, and drive more like a station wagon than a pickup truck.”
