Research Four Things to Love About the 2019 Toyota Avalon
New Toyota Avalon Sedan Will Debut In January At NAIAS
The recast full-size sedan will seek to stem the sharp sales decline of the current model.We’ve seen the new Toyota Avalon a few times this year wearing plenty of camouflage, but the mystery of this new flagship sedan won’t be a mystery much longer. Toyota has announced its revamped full-sizer will debut next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, featuring an all-new design with new platform technology.
Despite declining sales as buyers continue to shift toward SUVs, Toyota put a lot of noticeable effort into the redesign of the. Much like the the brought a much-needed update to a very outdated model. This is a ground-up redesign, and brought with it a bundle of extra technology that makes the Avalon one of the most desirable in its segment. Here are four of our favorite new features.
All-New 2019 Toyota Avalon Debuts in Detroit
Aggressive styling, updated premium interiorUnsurprisingly, the new Avalon rides on the rather good Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform. Utilizing the TNGA means the new car should have a more refined ride than ever, thanks to the platform's multilink rear suspension.
According to Toyota, the 2019 Avalon's optional adaptive suspension is a Toyota-first. We've enjoyed adaptive suspension on Lexus' for quite some time now, so this should be a well-executed system. The driver determines the stiffness through the various driving modes, ranging from Normal to "Sport+," which conceivably adjusts the throttle mapping, transmission shift points, and stiffness of the suspension.
Even if you don't spring for the adjustable suspension option, this is likely the sharpest driving Avalon to date, thanks to the TNGA underpinnings with multilink rear suspension.

The new Supra will apparently wear 225/50R-17 rubber up front and 255/45R-17 out back, which seems like an an awful lot of sidewall for a modern sports car. We wouldn’t be surprised to see 18s or 19s offered in the United States. For comparison’s sake, the ’93 Supra Turbo wore 235/45R-17 tires on its front wheels and 255/40R-17s in the rear.Of course, all of the usual caveats apply—foreign market, preproduction specifications, filtered through a forum—and we'll likely have to wait a long time for Toyota to confirm anything.
Finally, it looks like Toyota is embracing the future of infotainment. The Japanese automaker had stubbornly refused to offeror Android Auto on any of its cars, instead relying on its moderately convoluted and clunky in-house interface.
The new Avalon is the first Toyota with Apple CarPlay, hopefully opening the floodgates for future availability across the model range.
Just like the 2018 Camry's Cockpit Red leather package, the Avalon's new Cognac leather color shows Toyota is working hard to shake the cobwebs of complacency off. It's a sharp package, incorporating unique textures and patterns on the door panels and seatback.
Active Exhaust and Sound Symposer
While fake induction and exhaust noise isn't exactly something we support, the inclusion of these systems on the new Avalon is interesting, to say the least. Of all the cars offered for 2019, the Avalon would be the least likely candidate for an aggressive exhaust note. Well, here we are, with a new Avalon that offers "a hearty 'flare' of sound [that] occurs right before idle upon start up." Sure, why not.
