2020 Toyota Avalon review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Toyota Avalon?

The Toyota Avalon is a large sedan that seats five. It’s powered by a standard 301-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A gas-electric hybrid drivetrain is also available. Competitors include the Kia Cadenza and Chrysler 300

What’s New on the 2020 Toyota Avalon?

Following the Avalon’s 2019 redesign, the 2020 model offers a new performance-focused TRD trim level. The TRD version gets a lower, performance-tuned suspension, unique wheels and tires, bigger brakes, a TRD-tuned exhaust system and various cosmetic changes. 

What Features in the 2020 Toyota Avalon Are Most Important?

All Avalon models get the Toyota Safety Sense-P suite of active safety features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert is also standard. Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity is standard, but Android Auto isn’t available. The top-of-the-line Touring trim gets an adaptive suspension.  

Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota Avalon?

The Toyota Avalon is a very good choice in a shrinking large-sedan class, and it should be on your consideration list if you’re looking for big-car virtues, like a roomy interior and big trunk. If your preferences include a car with these attributes and a hybrid drivetrain, there are even fewer competitors.

This is my fifth Avalon, I love the car.

This car considering it's amenities is very fairly priced, gets great gas mileage, and the interior is very roomy for adults. Many safety features are incorporated into the car. It makes travel very comfortable.


Most comfortable, dependable car I've ever owned.

This car has plenty of interior space, comfortable seats with lumbar support and very sporty exterior look on this Touring model. Very fun to drive.


I've owned 3 Avalons 06 and 18 and a 2020...

I've owned a 06..18..2020 Avalons..they have changed through the models into a sportier..superior handling...faster and better looking car...They have all been super reliable...as they should be...This "20"is a keeper..I believe Avalon has found it's niche...Hopefully full sized cars will be around down the line..I like them and this is a good one.
