2019 Toyota Avalon Introduction

The 2019 Toyota Avalon full-size sedan has been redesigned, and it wears a more sleek body that’s longer and lower. To go with this show, the go from the V-6 engine gets an increase in horsepower to 301. It’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

The Avalon Hybrid returns, remaining one of the few dedicated full-size hybrid sedans on the market. It pairs a 4-cylinder engine making 176 horsepower with electric motors and batteries to make a total of 215 horsepower. That’s less than the V-6, but the Hybrid gets 43 city and highway miles per gallon, much more than the V-6. There’s even a sporty XSE Hybrid model.

The V-6 is EPA-rated at 22 mpg city, 32 highway, 26 combined; models with the most equipment and larger wheels post slightly lower figures.

Safety-wise, the IIHS gives the 2019 Avalon its Top Safety Pick+ rating, with “Good” scores in every crash test except small-overlap, where it’s rated “Acceptable.” The NHTSA gives it five stars overall, though in subtests it posts mostly four-star scores.

Standard safety equipment on every 2019 Toyota Avalon includes forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and emergency assistance (with a three-year trial subscription included) that can notify first responders in a crash, track a stolen Avalon, or call for help to fix a stranded car.
