The Toyota Avalon is an underrated entry into the world of affordable luxury cars. Better yet, Toyota offered an Avalon Hybrid for those who wanted budget luxury and fuel efficiency. However, if you want an affordable luxury sedan, you’re not limited to the Avalon. Check out one of these four affordable luxury alternatives to the Toyota Avalon, like the Nissan Maxima or Lexus ES.

  • Nissan Maxima
  • Acura Integra
  • Chrysler 300
  • Lexus ES

Is a Nissan Maxima a good car?

The Nissan Maxima is an excellent affordable luxury alternative to premium badges like BMW or Lexus. The Maxima starts at around the same price as a 2022 model year Avalon. Furthermore, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2022 Nissan Maxima a Top Safety Pick+ rating for safety and crashworthiness. That means the Maxima earned “good” ratings in every category, save for a couple of “acceptable” ratings in categories like headlights.

Furthermore, the Nissan Maxima’s 300-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine is nearly as powerful as the 2022 Toyota Avalon’s 301-horsepower V6 offering. However, the Nissan Maxima doesn’t offer a hybrid, unlike the Avalon.

Is the Acura Integra an affordable luxury alternative to the 2022 Toyota Avalon?

The new Acura Integra isn’t just an affordable luxury option; it’s a solid alternative to the 2022 Toyota Avalon. Although it is not a traditional luxury car, it ticks luxury sports sedan boxes. For instance, the reborn Integra packs an available six-speed manual transmission, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 16-speaker audio system, and a handsome, contemporary interior. If you’re looking for a fun alternative to a 2022 Toyota Avalon, the Acura Integra could be an unorthodox choice.

Is the Chrysler 300 discontinued?

Like the 2022 Toyota Avalon, Chrysler is discontinuing the 300 after 18 years. However, the Chrysler 300 is a solid alternative to the Toyota Avalon’s affordable luxury. The 300 starts at $35,140, around $3,000 less than the Toyota sedan. Plus, with an available 363-horsepower 5.7L V8 and now a limited-release 485-horsepower 300C, the Chrysler sedan is much more fun to flog.

Of course, the Chrysler 300 doesn’t offer a hybrid variant, and the most efficient engine option is a 3.6L Pentastar V6. That means the most economical 300 option will manage just 19 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The 2022 Chrysler 300 is not quite up to Toyota Avalon Hybrid standards.

Is the Lexus ES a suitable alternative to the Toyota Avalon?

The Lexus ES takes the famed Toyota reliability and adds a premium luxury feel and badge. First, the Lexus ES offers a hybrid in multiple trims, from the $43,300 ES 300h up to the range-topping 300h Ultra Luxury. Better yet, both vehicles provide fuel economy figures of around 43 mpg in the city and 44 mpg at highway speeds. Also, like the Avalon, the ES offers all-wheel drive (AWD), a feature you can’t find in the Chrysler 300.

Which one should you consider?

Any of these options are great alternatives to the 2022 Toyota Avalon. However, only the Lexus ES offers AWD and a hybrid variant in multiple trims. Still, the Chrysler 300 is a similarly sized car with a modern affordable luxury sedan pedigree and V8 power. Finally, the Acura Integra is a sporty, cost-effective alternative to Toyota’s soon-to-be-discontinued sedan.

Of course, Consumer Reports highly recommends the Avalon, and the sedan offers many preowned options for potential owners who want to save. Scroll down to the following article to read about the Toyota Avalon and other sedans!
