Detroit Auto Show 2018: 2019 Toyota Avalon gets all funky

Detroit Auto Show 2018: 2019 Toyota Avalon gets all funky

The Toyota Avalon has been around for more than two decades and has been through four generations in the meantime. The rather understated premium saloon has now entered the fifth generation with the all-new car’s debut at the Detroit Auto Show, earlier today. 

The all-new 2019 Avalon has shed all its simplicity and embraced funk just like its smaller sibling, the Camry, did it at Detroit last year. The new design gets almost a Lexus-like wide front grille and aggressive styling befitting a flagship Toyota sedan. While the sedan proportions have been maintained, the added curves and cuts make it look nothing like the car it is supposed to replace. 

The new Avalon is built on the TNGA platform which underpins the Lexus LS which means that the ride quality and dynamics of the new car will certainly be a notch above. With a lower centre of gravity and multi-link suspension in the back, the Avalon’s height has reduced by over 25mm along with the overhangs. 

In spite of the funky design, the Avalon has still maintained its class and we like it. Because it works exactly the same on the inside. The new cabin gets a twin-stack dash, also like modern Lexus cars, with a tablet display up top. The floating centre console adds a funk element to the neatly laid out cabin replete with leather upholstery, electrically adjustable seats, mirrors and sunroof.

Under the hood, you will have an option to choose between the 3.5-litre 300bhp V6 petrol and a 2.5-litre inline four petrol engine with a hybrid setup like in the Lexus ES. The Avalon will hit the road at the end of this year.
