The 2019 Toyota Avalon is a Front-engine and front-wheel-drive sedan that is inviting enough for a group of 5-passengers into its 4-door posh cabin. With the latest improvements and upgrades the Avalon has earned itself a position that not every car in its class could have achieved with such ease.
The Exterior Styling
At Meridian Toyota dealer many describe the exterior design of the 2019 Toyota Avalon as a piece of sculpture, because of its flat-out gorgeous look. Crafted at Toyota’s studio the Avalon is now a 2.0-inch-longer wheelbase but with shortened overhangs. The roofline has a single swoop from the lower cowl across the trunk. The Avalon has an overly aggressive detailing, in which the grille takes a lion’s share of the front view.
Interior Look and Comfort
With the same spirit for detailing the interior of the 2019 Avalon is a bit conservative in its approach that has simpler panel shapes with fewer design elements that intersect with each other. But the materials used inside the cabin are much subdued than expected.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon is a 195.9-inch-long sedan that weighs in at between 3560 to 3715 pounds, depending on the trim you choose. It carries a passenger volume: of 103–105 cu ft to accommodate 5 passengers without a squeeze, while the trunk volume of 16 cu ft looks just sufficient to load their belongings.
Engine and Power
The 2019 Toyota Avalon is run on few engine and powertrain options. Starting with a DOHC 16-valve Atkinson-capable 2.5-liter inline-4 engine, paired with an 8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode transmission, we can count a 176 of hp and a 163 lb-ft of torque that it can generate. Then there are 2 permanent-magnet synchronous AC motors that can produce a 118 of hp and149 lb-ft of torque, in tune with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
That output of this powertrain is channeling the right amount of power into its eight-speed automatic transmission making engine rev lower at times with a throttle that doesn’t give any feeling of gear hunting.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon is average in acquiring the EPA rating for its fuel economy that counts 25 mpg in a Combined trip, 22 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highways.
On Road Performance
The 2019 Toyota Avalon picks up a speed of 60-mph at six-second range, but it is seen to be committed more into producing a more performance-oriented image for this generation, and at the same time maintains a sober character that puts comfort of the passengers on the first of its priority list. That shows that the chassis is well tuned as well as its front suspension that work together as a team to achieve a vibration less movement even while dealing with uneven driving surfaces. The customers of the Meridian Toyota say that the cornering of the 2019 Toyota Avalon has limited as quite modest.
The Bottom Line
