The 2019 Lexus ES and the 2019 Toyota Avalon are two popular options among sedan buyers. They are both excellent cars with high predicted reliability ratings, and they come with powerful engines, comfortable and roomy cabins, and plenty of tech and safety features. If you have to choose between two cars from brands like Lexus and Toyota, you need to look at how they fare in specific departments. With that in mind, check out this detailed comparison between the 2019 Lexus ES and 2019 Toyota Avalon.

Luxury & Convenience
Both the 2019 Lexus ES and the 2019 Toyota Avalon offer a generous list of features to keep you and your passengers comfortable, connected, and entertained. Nonetheless, if you are a tech enthusiast, the Lexus ES should be the better choice. It features a 12.3-inch touchscreen display and a 10.2-inch head-up display, which are significantly larger than the Toyota Avalon's 9-inch touchscreen and 7-inch driver information display. The heads-up display also improves your safety by allowing you to keep your eyes on the road at all times.

Additionally, the Lexus ES offers an optional 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, which provides a better audio experience than the Toyota Avalon's optional 14-speaker JBL system. Other tech features that are available in the Lexus and absent in the Toyota include Amazon Alexa and Remote Touchpad.

Safety & Security
Besides basic safety features such as air bags, traction control, and stability control, the 2019 Lexus ES and 2019 Toyota Avalon are both equipped with many advanced safety technologies, including automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control.

However, the Lexus ES has a number of driver assistance technologies that are unavailable in the Toyota Avalon. It comes with lane-tracing assistance, a hands-on system that monitors lane markings or the movement of the vehicle in front of you and helps you stay centered in your lane by providing steering assistance. It also features road-sign assistance technology. This system provides road-sign and speed-limit information in the instrument panel or head-up display and alerts you of "Stop," "Yield," and "Do Not Enter" signs that you may otherwise miss.

Another benefit of choosing the 2019 Lexus ES is that it comes with longer warranties. Its basic warranty keeps you covered for 4 years and 50,000 miles, while the Toyota's expires 1 year and 14,000 miles sooner. In addition, the Lexus ES offers a drivetrain warranty that lasts 6 years and 70,000 miles, and a corrosion warranty that is good for 6 years and unlimited miles. The Toyota Avalon's drivetrain warranty is only valid for five years and 60,000 miles, and its corrosion warranty provides protection for five years and unlimited miles.

As the owner of a Lexus ES, you will also have access to roadside assistance for four years and unlimited miles. The Toyota, on the other hand, only offers roadside assistance for two years and unlimited miles.
