After Toyota revamped the Camry, we understood it would not be long before its more glamorous and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’s precisely what the Avalon does for 2019, as Toyota has completely 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 new. Its body lines are more pronounced, giving it a sportier appearance, and essentially all of its measurements have actually altered. The roofline is now 1 inch lower, its width up 0.8 inches, and its wheelbase extended by 2 inches. These new measurements will, of course, impact 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
Likewise enhanced is the quantity of soft-touch product used throughout the cabin, as purchasers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface area around the center console and draped over the cockpit console. Speaking of materials, a new Cognac-colored leather will make its launching on the Limited trim. Other interior improvements will consist of an offered 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 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 electric motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy boost. Both engines will pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The existing Avalon simply missed being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its undecided headlight tests. At the minimum, we expect the Top Safety Pick rating it got to rollover, but if Toyota handles to fix the headlight problem, we might see it receive that all-important title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will remain basic and include crucial features like automatic emergency situation braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
