After Toyota upgraded the Camry, we understood it would not be long prior to its more luxurious and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’s exactly what the Avalon provides for 2019, as Toyota has completely upgraded its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In regards to 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 virtually all its dimensions have altered. 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, effect the design of the Avalon’s cabin. In the back, 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
Likewise enhanced is the amount of soft-touch material used throughout the cabin, as purchasers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface area around the center console and draped over the instrument panel. Speaking of products, a new Cognac-colored leather will make its debut on the Limited trim.
Other interior enhancements 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 beast from JBL with 14 speakers.
2019 Toyota Avalon Engine
The basic engine in the 2019 Avalon will stay the 3.5-liter V6, but it’ll be more powerful and fuel effective, thanks to direct injection. There will be a hybrid model, which will include a 2.5-liter fuel engine and an electric motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy increase. Both engines will pair with an eight-speed automated transmission.
The current Avalon simply missed being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At the minimum, we anticipate the Top Safety Pick rating it got to carry over, but if Toyota manages to fix the headlight issue, we could see it get that all-important title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and include crucial features like automatic emergency braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota anticipates to have the 2019 Avalon in display rooms in late spring. Main rates remains unknown for now, but it ought to sound in somewhere near the 2017 model’s MSRP variety of $34,395 to $42,195 (destination costs consisted of). Competitors include the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
