Which Avalon does Edmunds recommend?

In all likelihood, the 2019 Toyota Avalon in Limited trim will hit the sweet spot for the typical large sedan buyer. It straddles the line between Toyota and Lexus without the sporty features and touches of the higher-trim models. It's also eligible for rear parking sensors with cross-traffic braking and the surround-view camera that is only offered on the top Touring trim.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The redesigned 2019 Toyota Avalon bridges the gap between the Camry and its pricier Lexus sibling, the ES 350. This latest fifth-generation model makes all of the expected improvements over its predecessor with more features, stronger performance, added refinement and more efficient engines.

An effort has also been made to give the Avalon a more sporty and up-to-date character than before. The exterior styling is sharper and the car's handling is more precise. Toyota has also equipped it with its latest infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. Of course, interior room and comfort are still key qualities for the Avalon, and this newest model certainly delivers.

Sales of big sedans have been dropping for a while now as more car shoppers gravitate toward SUVs. But if you're one of the sedan holdouts, you'll no doubt find the new 2019 Avalon to be one of the best in its class.

Trim levels & features

The 2019 Toyota Avalon is classified as a midsize sedan by the EPA, but you'll likely be cross-shopping it against full-size sedans. It is available in XLE, Limited, XSE and Touring trims. All of them come with a 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine (301 horsepower, 267 pound-feet of torque) that sends power to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid model is also available and is covered in a separate review.

The XLE trim starts off generously with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating, simulated leather upholstery, 60/40-split folding rear seats and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Technology features include Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Toyota's Safety Connect emergency communications, a 9-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Toyota's Entune infotainment system with smartphone-based navigation, Apple CarPlay, four USB ports, and an eight-speaker audio system with satellite and HD radio.

Also included is Toyota's Safety Sense suite of advanced safety features — including forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control — as well as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Stepping up to the Limited trim adds 18-inch wheels, upgraded exterior lighting, a sunroof, a head-up display, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, wood interior trim, aluminum pedal covers, ambient interior lighting, a wireless charging pad, a built-in navigation system and a 14-speaker premium JBL audio system.

The sporty XSE trim builds on the XLE's features with 19-inch wheels, piano black exterior treatments, a sunroof, a rear spoiler, augmented engine intake noises, paddle shifters, aluminum interior trim and microsuede seat inserts.

The range-topping Touring trim comes complete with all of the Limited and XSE upgrades, as well as an adaptive suspension, an additional Sport-plus drive mode, a sport exhaust, augmented engine noises and active noise cancellation.

Some of the features on the upper trims are available on the other trims as options. An Advanced Safety package with a surround-view parking camera system and rear parking sensors with automatic braking is optional on the Limited and the Touring.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our first drive of the 2019 Toyota Avalon (3.5L V6 | 8-speed automatic | FWD).

Driving

We expect the Avalon to have more power than the target buyer will need and get up to speed with ease. Handling should also exceed expectations, particularly with the Touring trim's adaptive suspension. Unlike in its rivals, all-wheel drive is not available.

Comfort

Both the suspension and the seats are designed with comfort in mind. Ruts and bumps are smoothed over well, and the cabin remains pleasantly quiet on the highway. The front seats are comfortable, with little side bolstering for easy entry and exit.

Interior

The cockpit is attractive and is fitted with high-quality materials, though the blocky center stack looks a little out of place. The sunroof that is standard on all but the base Avalon does, however, cut into headroom.

Technology

Apple CarPlay finally makes it into a Toyota with this Avalon. Unfortunately, Android Auto is still absent and the built-in Entune infotainment system remains one of the least intuitive in the industry. On the upside, the Avalon Hybrid comes standard with many standard driver safety aids.

Great Car But One Big Disappointment
Scott T Rock,09/11/2018
I love everything about the Avalon 2019 XLE and have been a loyal Toyota customer for decades BUT the ENTUNE System is nothing but an irritant nothing in it seems to work well or right. Loading was very slow, getting it to stop coming up and offer me an update more irritant. The Navigation System is tied to your smart phone and so far has not worked well. It does allow you to use Car Play if you have an Apple iPhone. You have to plug your phone in to use car play and the plug is not near the Qi compliant charger. It seems Entune is loaded with features that Toyota wants you to pay monthly for. Such a high tech car should have a real entertainment system which simply works.
Out with the old, and in with the new
Jay,07/09/2018
This is my wife’s new car.Going from a 1995 Thunderbird to a 2019 Avalon. What a difference 23 years makes. We also have a 2019 Grand Caravan which can’t hold a candle to the newer tech. We couldn’t see buying a 2018 when the 2019 was not going to cost very much more. Quality of the build, and the bigger passenger compartment is way more than the previous years. My husband is 6’3” and has plenty of headroom, and legroom in the front and back seats, even with the front seats all the way back.
Best car I ever owned
Paul spears,08/22/2018
This is one of serval Toyotas I have owned and by far the best. All the toyotas where great for reliable and fuel economy. So far this one get 33 on small trips. I love, the quietness and the heads up display. No more trying to see if l am going the right speed. So advanced in safety that it will make your head spin. Got a heart deal on this fabulous car. Thanks Toyota !
Still A Great Car for A Great Price
Pedagogue,08/29/2018
This is a luxury sedan without the luxury price. We previously owned a 2008 Avalon with 56,700 miles, and traded it in for $7,500. That was the private party price that the dealer matched. We love the new technology and safety features: blindspot monitor, rearview 180 camera, back up and lane detections systems. Within a few days we were comfortable using many of the features. The salesman had to deliver the car mats to our home and gave us private lessons on using the special features and connected the bluetooth, too. The dealership (Ed Morse Toyota Delray Beach, Fl) went out of their way to accommodate us and really worked with us to get a great price. We love the way it holds the road and keeps us safe. We've only done a few hundred miles, but love the way the car handles. We hope to have this car for many years to come, too. If you are considering a Lexus ES350 and can't hit that price, look at the 2019 Toyota Avalon and you'll be surprised.

Toyota Avalon vs. the competition

2018 Buick LaCrosse

Toyota Avalon vs. Buick LaCrosse

It's a close battle between the Avalon and the LaCrosse. The Buick received its own full redesign in 2017, so it's almost as up-to-date as the Toyota. The LaCrosse will likely gain favor in colder-climate regions thanks to its available all-wheel drive. The Avalon is front-wheel-drive only. Otherwise, both choices provide similar levels of comfort, luxury and performance.

Compare Toyota Avalon & Buick LaCrosse features

Toyota Avalon vs. Kia Cadenza

A recent redesign keeps the Kia Cadenza competitive against the all-new Toyota Avalon. The Kia offers more in the way of standard features, and its warranty coverage is unassailable in the industry. Holding the Cadenza back is lackluster performance, relatively limited cargo capacity, and a ride quality that isn't as composed.

Compare Toyota Avalon & Kia Cadenza features

Toyota Avalon vs. Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is the old man of this group and hasn't been fully redesigned in quite some time. To its credit, Chrysler has done well over the years to keep it updated. The brawny 300 is an outlier in the class, offering more attitude and a powerful V8 engine. All-wheel drive is available, too.

Core Landing Page SEO Content:

The 2019 Toyota Avalon is completely redesigned and even though it's classified as a midsize sedan by the EPA, it rivals traditional full-size sedans. It is available in XLE, Limited, XSE and Touring trims, all of which feature a 301-horsepower 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission routes power to the front wheels only. A hybrid model is also available and is covered in a separate review.

Feature highlights for the base XLE trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, simulated leather upholstery, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Toyota's Safety Connect emergency communications, a 9-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, a smartphone-based navigation system, Apple CarPlay and satellite radio. Forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are also standard.

The Limited trim upgrades include 18-inch wheels, a sunroof, a head-up display, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, wood interior trim, a wireless charging pad, a built-in navigation system and a premium JBL audio system.

The sporty XSE is based on the XLE trim and adds 19-inch wheels, black exterior treatments, a rear spoiler, augmented engine intake noises, paddle shifters, aluminum interior trim, and imitation leather upholstery with faux suede inserts. The top-of-the-line Touring model comes complete with all of the above, as well as an adaptive suspension, an additional Sport-plus drive mode, a sport exhaust, augmented engine noises and active noise cancellation. Options for the Limited and the Touring include a surround-view monitor and rear parking sensors with automatic braking.

This new Avalon competes well with full-size sedans such as the Buick LaCrosse, the Chrysler 300 and the Kia Cadenza. For the most part, they all deliver similar levels of comfort and refinement that were recently the exclusive domain of luxury brands. The Toyota Avalon is the only sedan in this group that does not offer all-wheel drive, which may be a detriment for owners in regions prone to harsh weather, but otherwise deserves a spot on your must-see list. Check out all of the resources and tools from Edmunds to help you find the right model for your needs.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Toyota Avalon?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
