The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors

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

By: 
usnews.com

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
