After Toyota revamped the Camry, we understood it would not be long prior to its more elegant and larger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. And that’s exactly what the Avalon provides for 2019, as Toyota has entirely revamped its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In regards to look, the Avalon is still quite identifiable, however the details are all new. Its body lines are more noticable, providing it a sportier look, and practically all its dimensions have changed. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase lengthened by 2 inches. These new measurements will, naturally, effect the design of the Avalon’s cabin. In the back, shoulder room will grow to 57.1 inches, leg room will jump to 40.3 inches, and headroom will increase to 37.5 inches.
2019 Toyota Avalon Interior
Also improved is the quantity of soft-touch product used throughout the cabin, as buyers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface around the center console and curtained over the instrument panel. Mentioning products, a brand-new Cognac-colored leather will make its launching on the Limited trim. Other interior improvements will consist of an available 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel, a readily available 10-inch head-up screen, and updated audio systems like a 1,200-watt monster from JBL with 14 speakers.
2019 Toyota Avalon Engine
The basic engine in the 2019 Avalon will remain the 3.5-liter V6, however it’ll be more powerful and fuel efficient, thanks to direct injection. There will be a hybrid model, which will include a 2.5-liter gas engine and an electric motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy boost. Both engines will pair with an eight-speed automated transmission.
The current Avalon simply missed being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At the minimum, we expect the Top Safety Pick ranking it got to carry over, however if Toyota handles to repair the headlight issue, we could see it receive that necessary title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and consist of essential features like automatic emergency braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota anticipates to have the 2019 Avalon in showrooms in late spring. Main prices stays unknown for now, however it ought to ring in somewhere near the 2017 model’s MSRP variety of $34,395 to $42,195 (location charges included). Rivals consist of the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
