PostHeaderIcon 2019 Toyota Avalon Gets More Aggressive, Boasts New Tech at Detroit

Toyota has undoubtedly heard cries from customers and journalists alike bemoaning its boring sedans. But no more. The 2019 Avalon is following in the 2018 Camry’s footsteps by going sporty. The new Avalon ditches the dull styling for some excitement as it moves into its fifth generation.

Toyota calls the Avalon its “mid-premium sedan” and has packed the car with loads of luxury features, more technology like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and made its Toyota Safety Sense P suite of active safety systems even more powerful. Improved powertrains include a reworked 3.5-liter V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission, along with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with Toyota’s newest hybrid system and CVT transmission.

There are four trim levels available: the XSE, Touring, XLE, Limited. Hybrid models come in XLE, Limited, and XSE grades.

“The swankier trims, the Touring and Limited, come with real wood and aluminum interior accents and fancy stitching on the leather seating”

The swankier trims, the Touring and Limited, come with real wood and aluminum interior accents and fancy stitching on the leather seating. The latest Entune 3.0 system now includes a Wi-Fi hotshot, Toyota Remote Connect with smartwatch and Amazon Alexa connectivity, and the return of the Qi wireless charging system. An available JBL sound system pumps 1,200 watts through 14 speakers over a 7.1-channel surround sound system.

Toyota also addresses the Avalon’s fun-to-drive factor. Adaptive dampers are standard (a Toyota first) and offer variable control over the suspension’s movements in conjunction with drive moves.

“Compared to the outgoing Avalon, the 2019 model has a 2.0-inch longer wheelbase, is 0.8-inches wider, and has shorter overhangs by 0.4 and 1.0 inches in the front and rear, respectively.”

The 2019 Avalon rides on the same Toyota New Global Architecture as the 2018 Camry, but is larger for more interior room. Compared to the outgoing Avalon, the 2019 model has a 2.0-inch longer wheelbase, is 0.8-inches wider, and has shorter overhangs by 0.4 and 1.0 inches in the front and rear, respectively.

As for the Toyota Safety Sense suite, it includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Back Guide Monitor. Optional safety equipment includes the Panoramic View Monitor (360-degree bird’s eye camera view) and Rear Cross Traffic Braking.

Toyota hasn’t announced pricing for the 2019 Avalon, but we expect it to start around $34,000. It will begin arriving in showrooms in the late spring of 2018.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Teases 2019 Avalon Ahead Of Detroit Auto Show Debut

The 2018 Detroit Auto Show is nearly here, and with its approach comes a deluge of teasers from across the board. The latest arrives courtesy of Toyota, which is previewing the soon-to-be-revealed next-generation full-size Avalon sedan with a few shots of the redesigned headlights and taillights.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story

The Toyota Avalon is a full-size four-door sedan, first seeing the light of day back in 1996. Since then, the nameplate has offered a combination of comfort, reliability, and a good amount of space as well. With a second generation appearing in 1999, a third generation in 2004, and the outgoing fourth generation in 2012, the last update we saw for the Avalon was for the 2016 model year, when Toyota gave it a face lift at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. Now, Toyota is redesigning the Avalon for the 2018 model year, and it’s likely to be quite the update indeed.

Although the Avalon usually plays second fiddle to Toyota’s more popular compacts like the Camry and Corolla, we have high hopes for the fifth-gen Avalon. After all, we’re quite fond of the recently revealed new-gen Camry, which just got a much more exciting design, nice engine options, and a very solid interior, all for the 2018 model year.

“We have high hopes for the fifth-gen Avalon. After all, we're quite fond of the recently revealed new-gen Camry, which just got a much more exciting design, nice engine options, and a very solid interior, all for the 2018 model year.”

As of this writing, we don’t have many details on the 2019 Avalon, but Toyota is giving us a preview of things to come with close-cropped teaser images of the headlight and taillight housings.

The headlights appear to show a duo of Y-shaped LED daytime running light signatures, while the taillights show a wraparound design and dynamic turn signal feature. The front end also looks to incorporate a large black mesh section in the grille, while the rear image appears to suggest a wider stance and well-formed decklid spoiler. Exterior aesthetics should see a marked upgrade this time around.

In terms of motivation, the new Avalon will likely get a V-6 in the nose, while the option for hybrid power is another very good possibility. Inside, we expect to see new support for smartphones thanks to the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as nicer materials, and the possibly for a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Look for the full details when the 2019 Toyota Avalon debuts at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Stay tuned to TopSpeed for the latest.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota TRD Avalon SEMA Edition

Toyota has brought five vehicles that have been customized by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) to SEMA this year in Las Vegas. All five vehicles represent Toyota’s most popular vehicles with a twist just for SEMA. One such vehicle is the Toyota Avalon – the automakers flagship, midsize sedan. This year the Avalon, like all of the other SEMA-edition vehicles, was built to fuel the imagination of consumers and industry professionals, while allowing Toyota to gain feedback on what people generally think of the modifications and accessories.

As a production model, the Avalon has always had a sporty exterior design, reasonable performance and has always carried the best technology Toyota has to offer. This year, Toyota’s midsize sedan comes to SEMA in XLE Touring trim, with exclusive modifications from TRD that include updates to the exterior, suspension, and even a few performance upgrades.

At first glance, the 2015 Avalon doesn’t look too extreme. But, that doesn’t mean we won’t be surprised once we get a full look at this machine in the metal. If you remember correctly, back in 2013, the TRD had its hand in modifying the 2012 Avalon for SEMA, and it did a fine job. So, did TRD and Toyota do as good of a job on this model? Read on to find out for yourself.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Avalon Hybrid – Driven

The Avalon has been a quiet stalwart of the Toyota lineup, providing a plush ride for those not interesting in owning a luxury brand (i.e. Lexus), but want all the bells and whistles normally associated with one. Equipped in the Limited trim, the Avalon offers just as many luxuries as say, the Lexus ES or even GS sedans, but without the hubbub. Add to that a fantastic hybrid system, and the result is a surprising package that affirms its halo role in the Toyota lineup.

I recently spent a week and a generous road trip getting to know the Avalon Hybrid. In fact, I took the car on an eight-hour adventure to my hometown for my 10-year high school reunion. The Avalon might not garner the same attention as the Lexus RC F from late 20-somethings, but I didn’t go with the mindset of impressing.

My wife and I made the quiet journey from central Florida north to I-10, then due west to the sleepy little town of Pascagoula, Mississippi. Save for a few high-profile tobacco attorneys, many of the town’s 22,000 residents are blue-collar, with folks working in the fishing, shipbuilding, or oil industries. Still, Southern charm runs deep here, with wrap-around porches on antebellum homes, sprawling live oak trees covered in Spanish moss, and thick, twangy drawls coming from gents and belles alike.

In other words, it was the perfect place for such a subtle luxury car to fit in.

Back in the 2013 model year, Toyota fully redesigned the Avalon, giving it a sleeker, sexier, and more luxurious look. Along with this redesign, Toyota made the Avalon’s body slightly shorter and wider, improving its stance and giving passengers more shoulder and hip room. Despite being the third-best-selling full-size sedan in 2014, Toyota unveiled a refreshed version for the 2016 model year at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

With the Chicago Auto Show’s opening in the books, we now get to see what the refreshed Avalon looks like. I honestly expected a little more from Toyota, but considering its place in the sales list and the fact that it has no hopes of catching up to the Impala, which more than doubled the Avalon in 2014 sales, I can’t say I’m surprised the refresh was so minor.

Updated 02/13/2015: We’ve added a series of images taken during the 2016 Avalon’s official debut at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. Check the new images in the “Pictures” tab.
