What's New in the 2020 Toyota Avalon?

The CH-R gets a mild update for 2020. Aesthetic changes consist of a new front bumper, new wheels, two new exterior colors -- Supersonic Red and Hot Lava -- and a new silver roof option. Functional changes include the addition of Android Auto on all trims, and a new adaptive front lighting system and an 8-way power driver's seat on the top-end Limited trim. All trims now come with a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. See the 2020 Toyota C-HR models for sale

Which Avalon is the Best?

Take a really long test drive in the Toyota C-HR. Pay attention to its visibility, its limited cargo space and its acceleration -- because they could ultimately drive you nuts in the long run. While Toyota's reliability is a positive, don't be seduced by the C-HR's styling without being fully aware of its foibles. Of the three trims, we give the XLE the highest recommendation, as it offers a good balance of features and value. Find a Toyota C-HR for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Toyota Avalon Cost?

The 2020 Toyota C-HR is available in LE, XLE and Limited trim levels.

The base LE trim ($22,415) comes standard with 17-in steel wheels, automatic headlights and high beams, LED running lights, forward-collision warning and automatic braking, lane-keeping assist, full-speed adaptive cruise control, automatic dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40 split folding back seat, cloth upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an 8-in touchscreen interface, one USB port, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an auxiliary audio jack and a 6-speaker sound system.

The XLE trim ($24,450) adds 18-in alloy wheels, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, proximity entry, push-button start and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. An upgraded infotainment system is optional and includes satellite and HD radios, in-car Wi-Fi, and Safety Connect emergency communications.

The Limited trim ($28,155) adds a new adaptive front lighting system, a power driver's seat with lumbar adjustment, fog lights, automatic wipers, leather upholstery and heated front seats.


The C-HR comes with class-leading safety tech. Besides the usual array of stability control, anti-lock brakes and front-side and side-curtain airbags, the C-HR includes a driver's-knee airbag, an under-cushion airbag on the passenger's side (which prevents submarining under a seat belt), forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, lane-departure warning, steering assistance and automatic high beams. The XLE and Limited trims add blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the C-HR a 5-star overall safety rating, along with 5-star overall frontal and 5-star overall side-crash ratings. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it the best possible crashworthiness and prevention scores, but a Poor headlights rating prevented it from getting a Top Safety Pick award. The new adaptive front lighting system offered on Limited trims for 2020 should rectify this issue, and we expect 2020 Limited trims to earn the award.

2020 Toyota Avalon vs the competition

2020 Hyundai Kona -- Thanks to its available turbocharged engine and AWD, the Kona is surprisingly sharp and fun to drive. It's also a bit more practical than the C-HR, although not as practical as the next two options.

2020 Honda HR-V -- The HR-V is the cargo-carrying champ of this segment. Not only does it have the most space, but its flipping and folding back seat yields the most versatility. Like the C-HR, the HR-V suffers from lethargic acceleration and a dull CVT, but it's at least offered with AWD.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek -- Whereas the C-HR is only available in FWD, the Crosstrek only comes in AWD. It also has substantially more ground clearance and a more rugged character, which results in a car better suited to those who intend to get out of the city.

2020 Kia Soul -- If AWD isn't important to you, then the Soul is worth a look. It, too, boasts distinctive styling and a generous array of features, but that it's stronger, roomier and cheaper increases its appeal.

2020 Nissan Kicks -- Imagine the C-HR, but instead of crazy styling and a cramped interior, you get frumpy styling and a gigantic interior. Oh, and it's cheaper. That's pretty much the Kicks.
