Do you want to commute through town in a comfortable sedan? Then you’re in great hands with either the 2020 Toyota Avalon or Lexus ES 350. These two popular cars actually have quite a bit in common, but they differ in key details that may help you determine which is the right pick for you.

To assist you in deciding which car you want to drive through Peabody, North Andover, and Danvers, MA, we created this Toyota Avalon vs. Lexus ES 350 comparison. Check it out, then contact the team at Ira Lexus of Danvers to schedule your test drive!

2020 Toyota Avalon vs Lexus ES 350A Comfortable Cabin in the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350

If you’re like many Danvers, MA, area drivers, then you spend quite a bit of time behind the wheel. That means you need a sedan that feels like home, which is something both the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350 offer.

They both feature a 2-row cabin that seats up to five passengers. They also give you more than 16 cubic feet of trunk volume to work with as you pack up for your next family getaway. Plus, available heated seats can help you warm up on a cold winter morning, while available ventilated seats cool you down on a warm summer afternoon.

As you hit the road, go ahead and play your favorite tunes from your smartphone, which you can connect to your sedan through standard Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, or—in the Lexus only—Android Auto™. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ essentially integrate your smartphone with your car’s touchscreen display, so you can safely access apps like navigation, phone contacts, and internet radio streaming while you drive.

However, you may find that the available 12.3-inch touchscreen display in the Lexus makes it somewhat easier to see your media than the 9-inch touchscreen in the Toyota.

2020 Toyota Avalon vs Lexus ES 350Toyota Avalon vs Lexus ES 350: Driver-Assist Technologies

Whether you’re commuting to work or hitting the road for a weekend away, both the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350 have all the driver-assistive tech you need to reach your destination safely. Both vehicles come equipped with an available suite of smart safety systems like:

  • Auto high beam headlights
  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Smart cruise control

They also feature a lane departure warning system that can issue an alert if you accidentally veer from your intended lane of travel. As an extra precaution, this system in the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350 includes a steering assist feature that can automatically guide you back into your lane.

Something we noticed in the Lexus that the Toyota appeared to lack is rain-sensing windshield wipers. These automatically turn on and adjust their speed based on the rate of precipitation on the windshield. Without a similar feature, drivers in the Avalon may be more focused on adjusting their windshield wipers than driving during inclement conditions.
