The 2019 Toyota Avalon was spotted undergoing benchmark testing alongside the current Avalon and the Kia Cadenza. The spy shots show that the saloon will get a revised styling similar to the new Camry.
The new Avalon is built on Toyota’s modular TNGA architecture, a front-wheel-drive chassis currently serving in the Prius and Camry. The current car’s bland styling has been ditched in favour of the curvy design language from the new generation Toyota cars. The narrow wraparound headlamps, the grille and the tail lamps draw influence from the current Camry. The alloy wheel design, however, is all new.
Propelling the Avalon would be four-cylinder mills for petrol and diesel variants along with a 3.5-litre V6 for the top-of-the-line variant. This engine develops 301bhp of 362Nm of torque in the Camry. The current Avalon is a facelift which has been on sale since the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. The new Avalon will be introduced in mid-2018.
