2019 Avalon vs. 2019 Lexus ES

While one sedan touts mass appeal and the other promises luxury, the Toyota Avalon and the Lexus ES have more in common than some drivers may suspect. Once you remember that Lexus is Toyota’s designated luxury subsidiary, the similar chassis, powertrain, and range of features makes total sense. Both vehicles were completely redesigned for 2019, and each represents their brand’s best efforts. The standards for both models are sky high, so to make the decision easier, let’s compare some key features.

Cabin Space

While the Lexus ES sports a refined cabin fitting a luxury vehicle, it doesn’t match the Avalon in terms of actual cabin space. Up to five passengers can sit comfortably in the front and back, with ample legroom in any seat. There’s also a respectable amount of overhead clearance and elbowroom even for adult occupants. If you and your family or friends have a long trip ahead, they would certainly appreciate the extra room.

Infotainment System

A modern infotainment system should provide convenient assistance and entertainment without causing the driver any distractions. Toyota is well aware of this, and equipped the Avalon with an intuitive Entune system. The menus are easy to navigate, and the touchscreen allows easy access to popular features like satellite radio and Siri Eyes Free. Drivers and critics haven’t found the same level of streamlined utility with the Lexus infotainment system, which does not feature a standard touchscreen. The analogue controls are arranged with little defining variation, prompting drivers to glance away from the road to input their commands.


When two cars share so many similarities, the difference may reasonably come down to the price. In this case, the Avalon pulls far ahead with a price tag starting several thousand dollars lower than the ES. That gap remains as you explore each vehicle’s trim range, and the economical Toyota ensures savings that could be put toward additional features, a higher trim, or simply put back in your wallet.
