Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Toyota Avalon

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - November 13, 2019
  • 2020 Avalon is here
  • Lease: From $399/mo. (2019)
  • Rebate: Up to $5,500 off (2019)
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR for 60 months (2019)

2019 Avalon is almost gone:

The redesigned 2019 Avalon, which boasts a sportier look and a larger, lower body, is still available but is nearly sold out. It promises better handling and the latest connectivity with Apple CarPlay. The Avalon is generally a slower seller than the Camry due to its higher price tag, but aggressive cash offers can sometimes make it cheaper than a higher-trimmed Camry.

Unfortunately, the new Avalon's base price is $2,000 higher than the previous generation. The good news is the Avalon Hybrid's MSRP is now closer to the gas version, so it may be smart to upgrade to the hybrid. Shoppers should be aware that Toyota plans to add AWD capability to the Avalon for the 2021 model year. Look for its introduction to come in the fall of 2020.

The 2020 Toyota Avalon is hitting showrooms now. It is mostly a carryover model but includes a new TRD model that features sportier looks, an updated chassis, and reduced weight. In preparation for the 2019 model selling out, Toyota has tweaked its offers.

Toyota's offers are regional and set to expire on December 2, 2019. Unless otherwise noted, all deals mentioned here are for Southern California.

Lease from $399/mo.:

The 2019 Avalon XLE is available in Northern California on a 36-month lease that runs $399 per month with $2,499 due at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $468, this offer is a bad value relative to its MSRP.

There are no promotional leases for the 2020 Avalon.

2020 Avalon rebate doubled:

Toyota continues to offer the 2019 Avalon with a $3,500 rebate to help improve prices.

Current Camry and Camry Hybrid owners can upgrade to the 2019 Avalon or 2019 Avalon Hybrid and get an extra $2,000 loyalty rebate in exchange. This brings the combined rebate to as much as $5,500.

The 2020 Avalon sees its rebate doubled to $1,500 ($750 increase) off.

Buyers cannot combine these rebates with the Avalon's low APR deals.

Finance deals:

Qualified buyers can finance the 2019 Toyota Avalon from 1.9% APR for up to 60 months. There is also a 72-month offer that runs 2.9%.

The 2020 Avalon gets its first low APR offers this month: 2.9% for 60 months and 3.9% for 72 months.

2020 Toyota Avalon Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Toyota Avalon line gains a sporty TRD model with sharper handling and aggressive trim. That's a notable addition for a car known for its ride and comfort. The Avalon received a total redesign just last year, so there are no other major changes for 2020.

Choosing Your Toyota Avalon

The Avalon is available in five trim levels: XLE, XSE, Limited, TRD, and Touring. Pricing starts at $36,755 including destination for the base XLE and tops out at $43,455 for the Touring. The range is somewhat narrow because the top three trims are priced within $400 of each other.

Engine Choices

Every Toyota Avalon gets the same 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Avalon achieves an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 combined.

The Avalon is one of the quicker large sedans on the market. All models are driven by the front wheels – there's no all-wheel-drive option. Toyota offers a hybrid version (covered separately) that offers excellent efficiency, if not the same level of performance.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Avalon offers full-size comfort for up to five adults. Rear leg room is impressive at 40.3 inches, which is less than 2 inches shy of the front. The trunk measures 16.09 cubic feet, which is average for a sedan of this size.

Safety Features

The Toyota Avalon lacks nothing when it comes to driver assistance safety technology. Standard features include lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. A surround-view camera system and rear automatic emergency braking are optional on the Limited and Touring.

The Avalon is an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus and earns a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.


The Avalon starts out with a 9-inch touchscreen, a wif-fi hotspot, a household-style power outlet, and two front and two rear USB ports. The eight-speaker sound system features HD and SiriusXM radio. Apple CarPlay is included, but Android Auto isn't available.

A 14-speaker JBL sound system with navigation is standard on the Limited and Touring, and optional on the other trims.

XLE - From $36,755

The XLE comes nicely equipped with features like power heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and leather-like SofTex upholstery. The XLE rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels.

The JBL audio system and navigation can be added for $1,720, and a sunroof costs $1,000.

XSE - From $39,255

The XSE takes the Avalon in a sporty direction with firmer suspension tuning, 19-inch black alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and gloss black exterior trim. The interior receives paddle shifters, aluminum trim, and aluminum pedal covers. The sunroof is standard here, and the JBL system and navigation remain optional at $1,760.

Limited - From $43,055

The plush cruiser of the group, the Limited carries a comfort-tuned suspension, ventilated front seats, wood interior trim, perforated leather upholstery, wireless device charging, and 18-inch chrome wheels. The sunroof and upgraded audio system are also standard.

The Advanced Safety Package ($1,150) adds a surround-view camera and rear automatic emergency braking.

TRD - From $43,255

The new TRD gets some choice mechanical upgrades: tuned dual exhaust, stiffer suspension tuning, larger front brakes, and extra structural bracing. The outside wears aerodynamic body trim and 19-inch matte black wheels. The black SofTex seats feature sueded inserts and red stitching. The JBL unit and navigation revert to optional status ($1,760), and the Advanced Safety Package option drops away.

Touring - From $43,455

The Touring combines the Limited's equipment upgrades with the sportier trim found on the XSE. Exclusive to the Touring is an adaptive suspension system and active noise cancellation with engine-sound enhancement. The Advanced Safety Package returns as an option ($1,150).

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Toyota Avalon XLE carries the same engine and standard driver assistance feature as the higher trims, which makes it the best value in our view. While the TRD handles better than the rest, it's still not a proper sport sedan. We consider the TRD treatment to be largely cosmetic. Oddly enough, the Limited is the only choice for buyers who insist on genuine leather seats.
