Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2022 Taos is a completely new model in VW showrooms. Leading up to its official reveal, we learned about its engine specs and size details as well as its handsome design and available features.

Pros
Huge back seat for its subcompact designation,
generous cargo storage,
really good fuel-economy figures.

Cons
Acceleration isn't as spunky as some rivals,
some chintzy cabin materials,
maladroit dual-clutch automatic.

By:

Pros
Comfortable ride
Great gas mileage
Spacious, supportive seats
Excellent cargo capacity

Cons
Some cheap cabin materials
Unrefined transmissions

All-new two-row subcompact SUV that slots below the Tiguan.

Pros
Sharp handling and smooth driving character
Comfortable interior that's easy to get in and out of
Big cargo area for a little SUV
Impressive technology features

Cons
Transmission can be slow to frustratingly slow to downshift
Noticeable road and engine noise at highway speeds

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:

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
