That's almost doubled the corresponding month's year sale of 2012. Probably due to a combo of ending model year, shortage of supply, and the economy. New models, more supplies, improved economy, good reviews and a push in ads = more sales for Toyota in 2013.

I test drove both of them and the handling and feel was very similar. The Avalon was just about fully loaded and even had rear seat heaters. Glass thickness is now the same on both cars which I felt improved noise levels in the Avalon from previous years. Overall, the Lexus was just nicer, heavier doors, less plastic, cleaner dash......etc. The really interesting thing to me was that Avalon was almost the same price as the Lexus. Not exactly apples to apples on features but close enough to make it a "no brainer" to go with the Lexus. When I told the Toyota salesman I was comparing the two cars he basically backed off his sales pitch and gave up.
