After Toyota redesigned the Camry, we knew it wouldn’t be long prior to its more elegant and larger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. And that’s exactly what the Avalon does for 2019, as Toyota has entirely revamped its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In terms of look, the Avalon is still quite recognizable, however the details are all new. Its body lines are more noticable, giving it a sportier look, and essentially all its dimensions have changed. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase extended by 2 inches. These brand-new measurements will, obviously, effect the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the rear, shoulder room will grow to 57.1 inches, leg space will leap to 40.3 inches, and headroom will increase to 37.5 inches.
2019 Toyota Avalon Interior
Also enhanced is the amount of soft-touch material utilized throughout the cabin, as purchasers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface area around the center console and curtained over the cockpit console. Speaking of products, a new Cognac-colored leather will make its debut on the Limited trim. Other interior improvements will consist of an available 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke wheel, a readily available 10-inch head-up display, and upgraded audio systems like a 1,200-watt monster from JBL with 14 speakers.
2019 Toyota Avalon Engine
The standard engine in the 2019 Avalon will stay 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 gasoline engine and an electrical motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy increase. Both engines will pair with an eight-speed automated transmission.
The present Avalon simply missed out on being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its undecided headlight tests. At the minimum, we expect the Top Safety Pick score it received to carry over, but if Toyota handles to repair the headlight problem, we could see it get that all-important title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and include important features like automatic emergency braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota expects to have the 2019 Avalon in showrooms in late spring. Main prices remains unidentified in the meantime, however it should sound in somewhere near the 2017 model’s MSRP range of $34,395 to $42,195 (destination charges consisted of). Rivals consist of the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
