After Toyota revamped the Camry, we understood it would not be long before its more luxurious and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. And that’s exactly what the Avalon does for 2019, as Toyota has totally redesigned its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In terms of appearance, the Avalon is still quite recognizable, but the information are all brand-new. Its body lines are more noticable, providing it a sportier appearance, and essentially all its measurements have changed. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase extended by 2 inches. These new measurements will, obviously, effect the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the rear, shoulder space will grow to 57.1 inches, leg space will jump to 40.3 inches, and headroom will increase to 37.5 inches.
2019 Toyota Avalon Interior
Also boosted is the amount of soft-touch material used throughout the cabin, as purchasers will find this pleasant-to-the-touch surface around the center console and draped over the cockpit console. Mentioning materials, a brand-new Cognac-colored leather will make its launching on the Limited trim.
Other interior enhancements will consist of an offered 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel, an available 10-inch head-up screen, and updated audio systems like a 1,200-watt beast from JBL with 14 speakers.
2019 Toyota Avalon Engine
The basic engine in the 2019 Avalon will stay the 3.5-liter V6, however it’ll be more effective and fuel effective, thanks to direct injection. There will be a hybrid model, which will consist of a 2.5-liter gas engine and an electrical motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy boost. Both engines will couple with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The present Avalon just missed out on being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At least, we anticipate the Top Safety Pick score it got to carry over, however if Toyota manages to repair the headlight problem, we might see it receive that critical title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and include crucial features like automatic emergency situation braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota anticipates to have the 2019 Avalon in showrooms in late spring. Main pricing stays unidentified for now, 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.
