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 - September 4, 2020
  • 2021 Avalon is here
  • Lease: From $584/mo. (est.)
  • Rebate: Up to $3,000 off
  • Finance: From 0% APR

2021 Avalon arrives with offers:

The 2020 Avalon, which is a carryover but gains a new TRD variant with a body kit and tighter suspension, is still available. This month, the 2020 Avalon gets an improved cash rebate.

The 2021 Toyota Avalon is starting to arrive now, and it starts things off with a few offers, but the 2020 model remains a far better deal. Toyota plans to add an all-wheel-drive 2021 Avalon with a four-cylinder engine in the fall of 2020.

Toyota's offers are regional and set to expire on September 30, 2020. Unless otherwise noted, all deals mentioned here are for Southern California.

No promotional lease offers:

There are no promotional lease offers on the 2020 Toyota Avalon yet, but you can lease one at the estimated retail rate, which starts from $584 ($17 increase) per month for 36 months with $3,234 ($17 increase) due at signing.

Want the 2020 Avalon Hybrid? Its estimated retail lease runs $618 ($38 increase) per month for 36 months with $3,268 ($38 increase) due at signing.

With effective monthly costs of $674 and $709, respectively, the Avalon and Avalon Hybrid leases are terrible values relative to the MSRPs.

The 2021 Avalon has no lease offers.

Both leases allow up to 12,000 miles per year.

Cash rebate boosted:

Toyota bumps the 2020 Avalon's cash rebate to $3,000 ($500 increase) to help improve prices.

The 2021 Avalon kicks off with its own $1,750 cash offer this month.

You cannot combine these cash offers with the low APR offers below.

Finance deals:

The 2020 Avalon is available with two financing offers: 0% for 60 months and 2.9% for 72 months.

The 2021 Avalon also has financing offers, but they're not as attractive as the 2020 models at 2.9% APR for 60 months or 3.9% APR for 72 months.

2021 Toyota Avalon: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The Toyota Avalon just went through a comprehensive redesign in 2019, so the next redesign is likely not coming for quite a while. The 2021 Avalon will, however, arrive with one significant change to its powertrain: optional all-wheel drive.

Fresh off a 2019 redesign that made it wider and lower and the addition of a sportier TRD model in 2020, we expect no visual changes to the 2021 Toyota Avalon. The only notable difference will be the subtle “AWD” badge on the rear of all-wheel-drive models.

Inside will be much of the same, as this near-luxury Toyota sedan will continue with its classy cabin design and high-tech goodies like the standard Entune Audio Plus infotainment system, 9-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth audio streaming, in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, and more.

The 2021 Avalon's standard powertrain will remain a 301-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that ships power to the front wheels. The big under-hood change for the 2021 Avalon will be an optional all-wheel-drive system paired with a 205-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Avalon

This all-wheel-drive system will boast an electromagnetic decoupling system that will disconnect the rear axle when you don’t need power at all four wheels to help save fuel. When things get slippery, all-wheel drive will activate and ship up to 50% of the engine’s power to the rear wheels.

The current Avalon received the IIHS’ highest honor as a Top Safety Pick+ model thanks to its “Good” scores in all crash tests, “Good” rating in the headlight test with the optional LED projector lights, and “Superior” front-crash prevention with its standard automatic emergency braking. With no changes expected in the 2021 Avalon’s safety equipment, these ratings should carry on unchanged.

Pricing will range from $36,870 for the XLE to $43,870 for the TRD (destination fees included).

This premium sedan will compete with the Chrysler 300, Nissan Maxima, and Kia Cadenza.
