TORONTO, ON – June 14, 2018 – Effortlessly sophisticated and stylish, the all-new, 2019 Toyota Avalon is the high-calibre, design-centric, technologically-savvy mid-premium sedan like nothing else on the road.
“Even as many other automakers abandon the segment, Toyota is committed to giving Canadians new reasons to get behind the wheel of a sedan – with an all-new Avalon that’s in a class by itself,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Avalon’s daring new look is matched by impressive engineering to deliver dynamic performance – including best-in-class handling. At the same time, it tops the segment for roominess, safety and efficiency – and packs a full complement of powerful, easy-to-use multimedia technologies.”
The new Avalon is available in two models – the all-new, athletic XSE and the more opulent Limited. The models are clearly differentiated in design and features to appeal to different tastes – but both deliver remarkable value for Canadian drivers.
Both models feature a 14-speaker JBL Audio system with ClariFi Technology, a 9” display, integrated Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and Apple CarPlay. Other standard amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, four USB charging ports, heated front seats, window jam protection, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio, Bluetooth, voice recognition and multi information display controls, integrated garage door opener, the Toyota Smart Key System with Push Button Start and the Qi wireless charging system for smart phones.
Built around the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform and a new powertain that benefits from more power and better fuel efficiency, the new Avalon delivers a spirited yet comfortable driving experience. A new TNGA-developed 3.5L Atkinson cycle V6 generates up to 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. It works in concert with an all-new, TNGA-derived eight-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission that delivers smooth, precise shifts and on-demand power to the front wheels. The Drive Mode Select system features Normal, Eco and Sport settings to match the driver’s mood and road conditions.
The new Avalon is also built around an impressive package of active and passive safety technologies headlined by Toyota Safety Sense P. This bundle of advanced safety systems includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection function, featuring forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking… Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function… Automatic High Beams… and full speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
