Back at the start of the year, we gave you a sneak peek preview of the 2019 Toyota Avalon. Now that the manufacturer's top luxury vehicle has pulled up to the lot of our Greater Vancouver dealership we're here to dive deeper into the features that make this upscale vehicle a top pick for lovers of the finer things in life.
5 Things That Make the Toyota Avalon One of the Top Luxury Vehicles of 2019
1. Distinguished Exterior Touches
Toyota's attention to detail on this luxury vehicle says it all. From the get-go, you'll note the Avalon's new lower and wider stance that is crowned by a flowing roofline to deliver the sleekest silhouette to date. The strong character lines provide further distinguishing details to the shape, while the Avalon Touring model further enhances the dynamic exterior with its piano-black accents that include a sport mesh front grille and 3D machined 19-inch wheels, while the dual exhaust with quad chrome tips and rear spoiler lets tailgaters know this upscale vehicle is not to be messed with.
2. Improved Aerodynamics
The 2019 Avalon is a direct beneficiary of Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA). This revolutionary new way of building better vehicles has rendered the Avalon one of the most aerodynamic luxury vehicles on the market.
The aforementioned lower, wider, and longer platform is complemented by a suite of features that include tangential vents on the sides of Avalon's front bumper, a rear diffuser, underbody panels and an available rear spoiler. All of these features assist in shaving the vehicle's drag coefficient to just 0.27, which increases fuel efficiency while reducing cabin sound.
3. Speed, Power, and Flow
The 2019 Avalon boasts a 3.5-liter V6 engine and is fully equipped with the most up to date driving tech, including Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide and D-4S direct-injection matched with a Direct Shift 8-speed transmission. The result? Power whenever you feel the urge, without the sacrifice of fuel economy. The latter gets even better if you drive the 2.5-liter Dynamic Force Engine and hybrid system, which offers an ECO and EV Mode that help deliver an impressive estimated 44 mpg highway.
The new Touring also comes with both a Sport Mode and a Sport+ Mode that allow you to manipulate and maximize driving potential, while the new Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) imparts on-the-spot damping adjustments to optimize handling and stability on the road.
4. Sound Control
The new Avalon drives with speed, power, and flow while allowing you to manipulate the soundtrack to it all. This is accomplished through the Touring's (standard) and XSE's (available) groundbreaking Engine Sound Enhancement (ESE) system that ramps up the engine's audibles through the Avalon's new audio arrangement. In addition, the Intake Sound Generator (ISG) and sport exhaust are capable of delivering an aggressive tune during acceleration, unless you're looking to play a different note when cruising the local scene, at which point you'll appreciate the Active Noise Control (ANC) system which sends noise-cancelling sound waves into your cabin.
5. An Interior Like No Other
The 2019 Avalon is also one of the most complete luxury cars on the market, with an interior suite that blends luxury, technology, comfort, and convenience.
The Touring interior is breathtaking thanks to touches such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, SofTex and Ultrasuede seat surfaces and door panels, and aluminum trim. If you opt for the Avalon Limited, you'll bask in the comforts of the available Cognac Leather-trimmed seating. The cabin is not just luxurious but spacious and offers 60/40 split folding rear seats with two adjustable and one fixed headrest, and includes armrests with cup holders.
Of course, the Avalon has long been known for its superior interior tech, and here in 2019 the multimedia experience is unmatched. For one, drivers and passengers alike will enjoy standard Bluetooth connectively along with available Amazon Alexa connectivity. But there's more. The vehicle also includes a first in smartwatch connectivity which allows you to keep in touch with your prized automobile even while you're away from it. This new wearable connectivity that is enhanced with the available Toyota Remote Connect gives owners unparalleled control over the vehicle through both touch and voice commands that let you locate your vehicle in a busy parking lot, lock or unlock the doors, and even start the engine. The new Avalon is also the first Toyota to offer Apple CarPlay.
State-of-the-art technology continues through the available 10-inch color Head-Up Display (HUD), a standard 7-inch Multi-Information Display, an available JBL audio system, available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, and Wi-Fi capability.
Additional driver-centric technology displayed on the interior includes an available Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, and a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
Vehicle models include XLE, XSE, Touring, Limited, Hybrid XLE, Hybrid XSE and Hybrid Limited providing something for everyone of distinguished taste. View more on the 2019 Toyota Avalon and be sure to contact our Greater Vancouver dealership to schedule a test drive today.
