2019 Toyota Avalon vs. 2019 Nissan Maxima

The 2019 Toyota Avalon and the 2019 Nissan Maxima are two of the latest additions to the automobile market. In case you have an eye on either of them, this comparison will tell you why you should choose a high-ranked model like Avalon over Maxima.  

Design & Style

The Nissan Maxima has been designed with standard cloth upholstery and 8-way power adjustable driving seat. The cabin can accommodate a crew of 5, with well-cushioned and comfortable front seats on offer. However, the rear seats are quite cramped, which is a big letdown for a large sedan like this. Even midsized sedans have more space on offer.

In contrast, the 2019 Toyota Avalon has an edge with sufficient seating space across both the rows, and even taller passengers won't complain sitting at the back. The interior has been crafted with elegance, with an excellent position of controls within easy reach. You will find a lot of top-notch materials and high-end trim pieces inside the cabin. 

Technology & Safety

Speaking of technology, the 2019 Maxima comes equipped with the Nissan Connect infotainment system, featuring an 8-inch display, Bluetooth, USB ports, satellite radio, 8-speaker stereo, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Premium stereo system, HD radio, Wi-Fi hot spot, and navigation system are optional. The touch screen has above-average graphics and the menu layout is a little complicated. In terms of safety, you have a driver attention monitor, emergency braking, forward collision warning, and a rearview camera.

The 2019 Toyota Avalon comes standard with an Entune infotainment system featuring a 9-inch display, satellite radio, audio system, Wi-Fi hot spot and USB  ports. The intuitive menu layout is quite user-friendly, and then you have the Apple CarPlay smartphone integration as well. Safety features are quite advanced, thanks to Toyota's Safety Sense Plus Suite which is packed with pedestrian detection, collision warning, lane keep assist and lane departure warning.


Performance-wise, the 2019 Nissan Maxima has one engine option in a 3.5-liter V6 that can produce up to 300 Horsepower. It is mated to an Xtronic variable transmission, but it can literally burn you with its low fuel efficiency rating. The Toyota Avalon is a better choice in this respect, with its V6 powertrain that has sufficient power to move the vehicle easily.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Toyota Avalon finds itself in the top half of the car rankings, as it is quite evident from the set of features it has to offer. The newly designed model looks almost perfect in terms of performance and technology, and moreover, the brand value of Toyota adds to the name. Maxima may be a good choice when compared to other vehicles of its class, but not against Avalon.
