Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata receives a much-needed injection of style.

Pros
More stylish than before
Relaxing, comfortable ride quality
Flexible engines
Android or Apple, your interface is OK
Roomy interior

Cons
Light on personality
Sport isn’t all that sporty
Limited customization options
Interior a little downmarket

one might consider Hyundai’s refreshed 2018 Sonata the brand’s rerelease of its seventh-generation mid-size sedan that was launched for the 2015 model year. That Sonata was a nice enough family four-door that failed to catch on with the buying public in the same way that its slinkier predecessor did; Hyundai is hoping this updated version will climb higher up the sales charts.

Pros
Quiet cabin,
easy-to-use infotainment system,
standard blind-spot monitor.

Cons
Dynamically dull,
1.6T engine limited to Eco trim,
active-safety features not available on all models.

By:

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata had been restyled inside and out and receives updates to its suspension and steering aimed at improving ride quality, response and feel.

PROS
Solid list of standard features and tons of available tech
Spacious interior accommodations and generous trunk space
Excellent user interface receives a more upscale redesign
10-year powertrain warranty offers peace of mind

CONS
No options available on Edmunds' recommended Eco model
Slightly less rear legroom than the segment leaders
Top turbocharged engine trails performance of its competitors
Lackluster power from base engine
