After Toyota redesigned the Camry, we knew it wouldn’t be long prior to its more elegant and larger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’s exactly what the Avalon does for 2019, as Toyota has entirely redesigned its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In terms of look, the Avalon is still very much recognizable, however the information are all brand-new. Its body lines are more pronounced, offering it a sportier look, and practically all of its measurements have actually changed. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase extended by 2 inches. These new dimensions will, of course, impact the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the rear, shoulder room will grow to 57.1 inches, leg room will leap to 40.3 inches, and headroom will increase to 37.5 inches.
2019 Toyota Avalon Interior
Likewise enhanced is the amount of soft-touch product utilized throughout the cabin, as purchasers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface around the center console and draped over the instrument panel. Speaking of products, a brand-new Cognac-colored leather will make its debut on the Limited trim. Other interior enhancements will include an offered 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel, a readily available 10-inch head-up screen, and upgraded 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, but it’ll be more effective and fuel effective, 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 couple with an eight-speed automated transmission.
The existing Avalon just missed out on being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its undecided headlight tests. At the very least, we expect the Top Safety Pick score it received to carry over, however if Toyota manages to fix the headlight problem, we could see it get that necessary title of Top Safety Pick+. Like last year, Toyota Safety Sense will remain basic and include crucial features like automatic emergency braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota anticipates to have the 2019 Avalon in showrooms in late spring. Main rates stays unidentified in the meantime, however it needs to ring in someplace near the 2017 model’s MSRP variety of $34,395 to $42,195 (destination costs included). Rivals consist of the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
