Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fully redesigned for 2019.Standard turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive.More upscale interior materials.Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.Part of the second K900 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Interior materials are much nicer than those in previous model
Even fully loaded K900s undercut rivals by many thousands of dollars
Spacious trunk space

Cons
Turn-by-turn navigation gives too many traffic alerts

If you’re reading this and saying, “I didn't know Kia made a luxury sedan,” you’re not alone. The K900 is a muscular four-door stuffed with leather, wood trim, and tech all as standard. The base engine is a 311-hp V-6; a 420-hp V-8 is optional. The steering is numb and the suspension is soft. Kia wants buyers to think the K900 is a value compared with its pricier competitors, but we’d rather spend less for a car that is more about driving than gadgets. An all-new K900 goes on sale in late 2018.

Pros
A vast improvement compared to the previous model,
competent driving dynamics,
unquestionable value.

Cons
Owners may suffer from brand envy,
interior is derivative,
doesn’t excel in any single area.

The 2019 Kia K900 brooms some of its big chrome, and ups the ante with twin-turbo power.

Pros
Less stuffy style
Thrusty twin-turbo V-6
More interior space
More standard safety tech
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Styling drama lives entirely inside
More old-school luxe than sporty

Anyone who has ever attempted to play Bop It can tell you that multitasking isn’t easy. So this particular version of the new 2019 Toyota Avalon that we’ve just tested seems to have the cards stacked against it.

Pros
40-plus mpg for real,
comfy rear seat,
elegant styling (apart from the grille).

Cons
Overdone grille,
not quick,
could the ride be too sporty?

The 2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid ranked #2 in Large Cars. Currently the Toyota Avalon Hybrid has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent mpg ratings
Smooth ride
Spacious seats
Upscale cabin

Cons
High base price
Could use a little more power at times

The Toyota Avalon Hybrid has been completely redesigned for 2019.The 2019 Toyota Avalon in Limited trim should satisfy the typical large-sedan buyer. It forgoes the sporty touches of the XSE model in favor of more Lexus-like luxurious refinement.

PROS
Lots of standard advanced safety features
Efficient hybrid powertrain with little sacrifice
Upscale cabin is quiet and roomy
Comfortable ride quality

CONS
Sunroof limits front headroom
No Android Auto integration
