After Toyota upgraded the Camry, we knew it wouldn’t be long before its more luxurious and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’s precisely what the Avalon does for 2019, as Toyota has totally revamped its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In terms of look, the Avalon is still quite identifiable, but the information are all new. Its body lines are more noticable, providing it a sportier appearance, and practically all its measurements have altered. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase extended by 2 inches. These brand-new dimensions will, naturally, effect the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the rear, shoulder space 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 boosted is the amount of soft-touch product used 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 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 monster from JBL with 14 speakers.
2019 Toyota Avalon Engine
The standard engine in the 2019 Avalon will remain the 3.5-liter V6, however it’ll be more effective and fuel efficient, thanks to direct injection. There will be a hybrid model, which will consist of a 2.5-liter gas engine and an electric motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy increase. Both engines will couple with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The present Avalon simply missed out on being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At the minimum, we expect the Top Safety Pick score it received to carry over, however if Toyota manages to fix the headlight issue, we might see it get that necessary title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and consist of 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. Official pricing stays unidentified in the meantime, but it should sound in someplace near the 2017 model’s MSRP range of $34,395 to $42,195 (destination fees consisted of). Competitors consist of the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
