Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2020 Toyota Avalon XSE Hybrid starts at $38,885, while the more luxurious Limited costs $44,585. The Avalon has plenty of interior room for front and rear passengers along with lots of cargo space in its good-ol'-fashioned big sedan trunk. The cabin materials are well thought out and of very high quality. The biggest issue with the interior of the Avalon is the noise.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Excellent infotainment
  • Comfortable front seats
Cons
  • Noisy at highway speeds
  • Expensive for what you get

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2021 Toyota Avalon Hybrid starts at just about $38,000 including $995 in destination fees. This Toyota is powered by a hybrid drivetrain centered around a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The Avalon Hybrid is soothing to drive and can actually make you feel less stressed after a journey than when you started.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Powerful hybrid drivetrain
  • Excellent fuel efficiency
Cons
  • Lane centering isn't available at any price

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2021 Toyota Avalon TRD does a good job approximating a sport sedan without going whole hog. Its 3.5-liter V6 puts out the same 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque as any other variant. All trims come standard with a 9-inch touchscreen that includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Fun to drive
  • Lots of cargo space
Cons
  • Lacks AWD and limited-slip differential
  • Lacks adaptive dampers

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The 2020 Toyota Avalon TRD is a good idea with poor execution. It's possible to make a big sedan into a performance car, just look at the BMW M5. The TRD upgrades make the Avalon better to drive (and to look at), but they don't transform it. If you want four doors, lots of space, and a little fun, other cars offer more for the money.

Pros
  • Powerful V6
  • Lots of space
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Lack of refinement
  • Not as agile as a Nissan Maxima
