2019 toyota avalon specs, price, mpg & reviews

Toyota"s past & future collide in the 2019 Avalon, a flagship full-size sedan that must regain the trust of buyers put off by the outgoing model"s stiff ride quality, yet Toyota must also attract younger buyers with a oto that"s sportier than any of its previous four generations. So does the Avalon return to its roots as a mature, vaguely premium, comfortable sedan, or does it lean further toward the Nissan Maxima"s sporty side of the spectrum?

Toyota"s new Avalon strategy splits the lineup in two, & we aren"t referring to lớn the 301-hp V-6 & 215-hp four-cylinder hybrid powerplants. If your definition of Avalon is a comfortable American-style cruiser, stick with the XLE và Limited grades. They place a higher priority on comfort than bởi the XSE & Touring trims (the latter is a V-6-only trim), which turn up the sportiness quotient in looks & driving experience.

All Avalons benefit from Toyota"s new TNGA platkhung, which helps improve sầu handling, lowers the overall center of gravity, and reduces NVH in the cabin, Toyota claims. But before you experience any of those improvements, you"ll encounter the lakiểm tra application of Toyota"s "I"M SO ANGRY" thiết kế language. With the XLE and Limited, the giant grille looks decent, but the sportier XSE và Touring variants wear blaông xã grille tryên ổn that doesn"t break up the enormous mass of space well.


The 2019 Avalon is longer (0.6 inch), lower (1.0 inch), & wider (0.6 inch) than its predecessor, và it rides on a wheelbase that"s 2.0 inches longer. Those tweaks coalesce to subtly reshape the car"s proportions, but you"re more likely khổng lồ notice the C-pillar sliding down at a gentler angle than in any previous Toyota sedan. You can tell it"s a Toyota, yet no one with their glasses on will mistake a Camry with an Avalon, from the bigger car"s 3.2 lớn 3.8 extra inches of length lớn its rear quarter window khổng lồ the central taillight reflector element visually connecting the two taillights.

On the road, the Avalon feels nimble for a 195.9-inch oto, but the premium-ish sedan never feels like it deserves 4DSC badges (4-Door Supra-lượt thích Car). That"s OK, because all Avalons have sầu accurate and well-weighted steering that"s not overly light. And if you stichồng with the XLE and Limited trims, the suspension will keep things comfortable. The same can"t be said about the Touring mã sản phẩm, which, with its adaptive variable suspension & 19-inch wheels, connects you lớn the road in a noticeably different way compared lớn the comfort-oriented models. On winding roads and around corners, you"ll appreciate that trim"s sportier tuning—not to mention the guttural aural sensations of the 301-hp Touring model"s engine-sound enhancer. Once you get on the highway, however, the combination of tire noise and the way some road imperfections enter the cabin makes it clear the Touring (& the XSE khổng lồ some extent) are not ideal road trip cars.


Other 2019 Avalon trims are quieter than their predecessors, whether you choose the V-6 or the available hybrid. The V-6 Mã Sản Phẩm uses an eight-tốc độ automatic, & in our short time with the car, we didn"t notice some of the minor issues we"ve sầu seen with this engine and transmission combination in the Highlander (specifically, upshifting too soon lớn the tallest possible gear). But as with the 296-hp Sienmãng cầu, the 301-hp Avalon has trouble getting all of that power to lớn the front wheels. If you"re taking off in the Avalon from a dead stop, consider being gentle with the throttle at first to avoid chirping the tires. After that, you"ll feel a surge of power as you accelerate to lớn highway speeds. The 3.5-liter V-6 feels powerful in passing situations, taking just a moment lớn inhale before giving you the oomph you need.

A popular midkích cỡ sedan lượt thích the Fusion or Camry won"t cut it for buyers who seek something more exclusive sầu. Toyota sold more than 10 times as many Camry sedans last year as it did Avalons, which is a startling comparison even when you consider that"s a mix of new Camrys against the last-generation Avalon. Beyond the added exterior size & updated styling, the 2019 Avalon elevates itself above sầu the Camry with a uniquely styled and rich-feeling interior. The Avalon Limited"s redesigned interior—aided by cool Yamaha-sourced wood trim—earns every cent of its $42,695 price tag. However, all trims feature interiors filled with soft-touch surfaces almost everywhere, even on the $36,395 XLE V-6. Yes, $36,395, a base price that"s higher than the Avalon"s non-luxury-branded competition, a bit higher than two Lincoln MKZ models, and isn"t much lower than the least expensive six-cylinder Buiông chồng LaCrosse.

Even so, the Avalon"s standard features danh sách is long. Every 2019 Avalon gets LED headlights, a 7.0-inch display in the instrument cluster, & a 9.0-inch central touchscreen at the top of the dash that makes the also-standard Apple CarPlay"s type look huge. (Android Aukhổng lồ isn"t available yet.) You also won"t pay extra for hands-không lấy phí keyless access with push-button start, fast-charging USB ports front & rear, two years or 25,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance services, and a full package of active safety tech. Available options include a surround-view camera system with a cool front wheel view mode, a head-up display with a 10.0-inch viewing projection, sequentially firing turn signals, real wood or aluminum tryên ổn, & a 14-speaker, 1,200-watt JBL sound system. But neither a power-closing trunk nor the Camry"s panoramic moonroof are available.


The Avalon"s standard safety equipment includes automatic emergency braking (the most important feature of the group), lane departure mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert; rear braking is optional. Full-speed adaptive cruise control is also standard, but more sensitive drivers might find the system comes to a stop just a tad too quickly & sometimes pulls away a little aggressively. It might be useful on long road trips, but it"s not at its best in stop-and-go traffic.

In a stagnating segment, Toyota is attempting lớn justify the Avalon"s reason for being. The car feels premium inside. If you pick the right trim, it"s comfortable, as well. Whether there are Touring buyers who want a big car with a less-than-plush ride remains to be seen—it"s worked for the Camry so far. Our feeling: A loaded Limited (instead of a base XLE or a sporty và loaded Touring riding on hot 19-inch wheels) maximizes its advantages with a more comfortable ride, a premium interior, & a decent driving experience.
