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.
