After Toyota revamped the Camry, we understood it would not be long prior to its more elegant and bigger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’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 regards to appearance, the Avalon is still very much identifiable, however the information are all new. Its body lines are more noticable, providing it a sportier appearance, 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 brand-new measurements will, naturally, effect the layout of the Avalon’s cabin. In the back, 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 improved is the amount of soft-touch product used throughout the cabin, as purchasers will discover this pleasant-to-the-touch surface around the center console and curtained over the instrument panel. Speaking of materials, a new Cognac-colored leather will make its launching on the Limited trim.
Other interior enhancements will include a readily available 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a three-spoke steering wheel, a readily 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 remain the 3.5-liter V6, but 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 pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The existing Avalon simply missed out on being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At the very least, we anticipate the Top Safety Pick rating it received to rollover, but if Toyota handles to repair the headlight issue, we could see it receive that necessary title of Top Safety Pick+. Like in 2015, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and include essential features like automated emergency braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota expects to have the 2019 Avalon in display rooms in late spring. Main prices remains unidentified in the meantime, however it must sound in somewhere near the 2017 model’s MSRP range of $34,395 to $42,195 (location fees included). Competitors include the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
