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

For 2021, the GLA-class is a clean-sheet redesign. While it still resembles the previous-generation GLA-class, the new model looks more premium inside and out, which will help it blend with the throng of Mercedes-Benz SUVs that launched for the 2019 and 2020 model years. It shares a platform with the brand's other small offerings, including the slightly larger GLB-class SUV and the entry-level A-class sedan.

Pros
Responsive handling,
lots of available features,
interesting design.

Cons
Cramped interior,
uncomfortable ride,
not as luxurious as a Benz should be.

The GLA has been fully redesigned for 2021.Part of the second GLA generation introduced for 2021.

Pros
Smooth ride and comfortable seats
Features one of today's best, most advanced infotainment systems
Mercedes badge at an affordable price

Cons
Most of the GLA's advanced safety features are optional
Too much road noise for a luxury SUV
Cargo capacity is small compared to Mercedes' GLB

By:

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest and least expensive SUV in its lineup, and a welcome entry to the brand.

Pros

Reasonably well-equipped
Roomier rear seats
Extensive options

Cons
Expensive options
Some options should be standard
Small cargo area
Can’t wait for the GLA45
