Both the 2019 TLX and 2019 Avalon models have quite a lot to offer you, especially in terms of interior technology. They both feature high-class infotainment systems complete with app integration and premium audio, allowing you to speak with your friends and play your favorite music in clarity. However, when it comes time to drive, the 2019 TLX is much more adept at helping you keep control over the road. For starters, it offers Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) complete with Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®), as well as a smooth-shifting automatic transmission that can harness your engine’s energy seamlessly - none of these features are present on the 2019 Avalon.

  • Blind Spot Information System

  • Many more!
