After Toyota redesigned the Camry, we understood it wouldn’t be long before its more elegant and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. And that’s exactly what the Avalon provides for 2019, as Toyota has entirely revamped 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 new. Its body lines are more noticable, providing it a sportier look, and virtually all its dimensions 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, naturally, effect the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the back, shoulder room 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 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. Mentioning products, a new Cognac-colored leather will make its debut on the Limited trim.
Other interior enhancements will include a readily available 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel, an offered 10-inch head-up display 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 include a 2.5-liter gas 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 minimum, we anticipate the Top Safety Pick ranking it received to rollover, however if Toyota handles to fix the headlight problem, we might see it get that critical title of Top Safety Pick+. Like last year, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and include important 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 prices remains unidentified for now, but it must sound in someplace near the 2017 model’s MSRP range of $34,395 to $42,195 (destination charges consisted of). Competitors include the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
