Do you want an entry-level luxury sedan that won’t obliterate your pocketbook? The 2020 Toyota Avalon is a superb choice, with its elegant design, excellent driving dynamics, a roomy and upscale interior, advanced technologies, and a wide array of premium features — all at a reasonable price. Take a look at this 2020 Toyota Avalon vs 2020 Acura TLX comparison to see how the Avalon favorably stacks up against the competition.
The 2020 Toyota Avalon is very fun-to-drive, especially with its robust 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine, which delivers an output of 301 horsepower. The base-level 2.4-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine for the TLX produces just 206 horsepower, while its available 3.5-liter SOHC V6 engine generates 290 horsepower. Unlike the TLX, the Avalon offers an available Adaptive Suspension. It has driver-selectable settings, including a Sport Mode for a more engaging driving experience. Also, with a shorter turning circle (37.7’ vs 38.8’), the Avalon is more maneuverable than the TLX.
The 2020 Avalon edges out the 2020 TLX for efficiency, with an estimated fuel economy of up 22 city/32 hwy mpg, compared to 20 city/30 hwy mpg for the TLX. For even greater efficiency, the Avalon offers a hybrid model, which gets an estimated fuel economy of up to 43 city/44 hwy mpg. The TLX doesn’t offer a hybrid model.
You can count on a very safe ride with the Avalon and its safety-enhancing driving assistance technologies, such as the standard secondary collision braking system and the available rear cross-traffic braking system. The TLX doesn’t offer either of these features.
