Toyota Avalon's aggressive new type pairs with security and effectivity

Image of 2016 Toyota Avalon. Toyota Car Play vehicles are arriving this spring

The redesigned Avalon rides on Toyota's TNGA architecture, which also underpins the mid-size Camry. Prior to the CarPlay integration on the upcoming Avalon, Toyota has insisted on using its own technology for similar functionalities. The models will be the 2019 Avalon, as well as other 2019 models like the luxury Lexis brand.

The Toyota Avalon looks good, but is the tech up to it? The company's flagship sedan in its fifth generation has been unveiled with significant updates. Its height has been reduced an inch, while overall length, width and wheelbase have been increased, the latter by two inches. Nearly every aspect of the new Avalon changes, including its exterior styling, interior style, infotainment, and drivetrains.

The new Avalon has a roomier interior than the one it replaces and higher quality materials, including optional Yamaha-sourced wood.

The adaptable platform allowed for an exterior that is also longer, lower, and wider than before on previous versions of the Avalon. This year, it's the Camry's big brother's turn. Toyota has been among the last holdouts to not integrate Apple CarPlay into its vehicles, but that finally changes with this new model.

One of the car's designers told motoring.com.au you have to include drama to sell a sedan in today's SUV-mad world.

The website said it had been in talks with Clifford prior to the November 2016 election about a story on the allegations. In a statement provided by Cohen from Daniels, she also calls the article "absolutely false".

CarPlay compatibility will work with the Entune 3.0 and Enform 2.0 multimedia systems.

Hollis says Toyota is "absolutely" looking at Android Auto as well. The system will also have safety connected services that are powered by Wi-Fi from Verizon with up to 2GB within 6 months.

Inside, a 9.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment takes center stage.

Safety-wise, every 2019 Avalon model comes with 10 standard airbags and a suite of safety features including enhanced vehicle stability control, traction control, reverse camera and brake assist.

Under the hood, there is 3.5-liter V6 or 2.5-liter four cylinder options available depending on the model you select. No output or fuel consumption figures have been released just yet for either petrol or Hybrid models. Hollis sees this as an opportunity, even though he sold only 32,000 Avalons a year ago. And the Avalon stays a front driver, bucking the all-wheel drive trend.
