Unchanged a year following a complete redesign, the 2020 Toyota Avalon Hybrid retains a sleek design, smooth ride, standard advanced safety systems, and impressive fuel economy. At the same time, steering is numb, the engine sounds ragged when hustled, the large grille overpowers the sleek design, while rear cross-traffic alert is only available as part of an expensive option package on the top-trim Limited.
Three years into its current model cycle, the 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid continues to impress, offering a sharp design, smooth ride, spacious interior, and excellent fuel economy, while a new audio alert system should translate to increased safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and other road users. At the same time, steering is numb, much of the interior door trim is hard plastic, while engaging Sport mode invites CVT drone.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, mildly freshened this year, continues to offer moderately good looks, a smooth ride, plenty of interior room, and an attractive entry-level price point. But a pair of mediocre powertrains return only average fuel economy, the cut-rate interior displays lackluster quality and, 10 years into its current model run, is another step behind competitors.
The 2019 Hyundai Tucson receives a refresh, and continues to impress with a broad selection of trims, active safety tech, an excellent warranty, and the brand’s solid value proposition. At the same time, it’s let down by average fuel economy, unexceptional performance, and numb steering, while the widest range of safety features are only offered on the top trim level.
