After Toyota redesigned the Camry, we understood it would not be long prior to its more elegant and larger cousin, the Avalon, joined it. Which’s precisely what the Avalon provides for 2019, as Toyota has completely revamped its premium sedan from the ground up.
2019 Toyota Avalon Design
In terms of look, the Avalon is still very much identifiable, but the details are all new. Its body lines are more noticable, giving it a sportier appearance, and essentially 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 measurements will, naturally, effect the design 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.

Also enhanced is the quantity of soft-touch material used throughout the cabin, as buyers will find this pleasant-to-the-touch surface around the center console and curtained over the instrument panel. Speaking of 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 wheel, an 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 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 gasoline engine and an electric motor that’ll see its power and fuel economy increase. Both engines will couple with an eight-speed automated transmission.
The existing Avalon simply missed being a Top Safety Pick+ due to its iffy headlight tests. At the very least, we expect the Top Safety Pick ranking it received to rollover, but if Toyota handles to repair the headlight problem, we could see it get that critical title of Top Safety Pick+. Like last year, Toyota Safety Sense will stay standard and consist of essential features like automated emergency situation braking.
2019 Toyota Avalon Pricing & Release Date
Toyota expects to have the 2019 Avalon in display rooms in late spring. Main prices remains unidentified for now, but it needs to sound in somewhere near the 2017 model’s MSRP range of $34,395 to $42,195 (location costs consisted of). Competitors include the Kia Cadenza, Buick LaCrosse and Chrysler 300.
