The Redesigned & Refined 2019 Toyota Avalon Will Appeal To a Broader Base Than Ever Before

The Toyota Avalon full-size sedan indeed model holds a very interesting place in today's marketplace. With both the iconic mid-size Camry and the incredibly popular compact Corolla sedans found in Toyota's lineup, the Avalon may have been somewhat overshadowed by these extremely hot-selling cars over the past few years...

However, thanks to a major redesign and a wealth of dramatic upgrades, the latest 2019 Toyota Avalon sedan is simply now more attractive than ever before, and we strongly suspect that far more shoppers across the entire industry will carefully consider the sleek and sophisticated all-new Avalon sedan!


Checking Out What's New for the 5th Generation Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon hasn't been truly redesigned since back in 2013, and the 2019 model-year now uses the brand's entirely new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which promises to enhance handling, improve fuel economy, lower the vehicle's center of gravity, and also reduce interior noise while driving. Looking at the exterior design, the latest Avalon now has a body that's longer, lower, and wider than its predecessors. For 2019, it possesses a gently-sloping roofline that embodies the stylish "sportback" appearance that really is so wildly-popular these days.

While there certainly is so much new for the latest Avalon, the exceptional durability, reliability and quality of this sedan is nothing new at all for Toyota.

MSRP begins at $35,000 for the all-new 2019 Toyota Avalon model, and trim levels include the XLE, XSE, Touring, Limited, Hybrid XLE, Hybrid XSE, and the Hybrid Limited.

Eye-Catching New Design with Efficient Aerodynamics

We know it's true that an aerodynamic design doesn't necessarily translate to an appealing style. However, it's evident that Toyota did a fantastic job of re-shaping and redesigning the exterior of the new Avalon, that now looks sportier than it ever has before. The overall body and shape of this striking sedan is now remarkably sleek and tastefully-sculpted with proportions that look great from all sides. Not only does this redesign improve the style and appearance of the new Toyota Avalon, but it also allows it to achieve a superb drag-coefficient which heavily improves fuel-economy as well.

Sporty exterior options include the likes of a bold blacked-out mesh grille and chrome accents. Our customers can choose from colors such as Harbor Gray Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, Opulent Amber, Brownstone, Parisian Night Pearl, Ruby Flare Pearl, and Wind Chill Pearl.
