Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a great bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide variety of options, so you can pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Toyota Avalon. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2019 Toyota Avalon is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the 2019 Toyota Avalon with a four-cylinder engine or a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly 2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. On the highway, the 2019 Toyota Avalon is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Toyota Avalon also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Toyota Avalon with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2019 Toyota Avalon supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose among the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to choose from over the way.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content makes it supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with a little more class and space than a small sedan, the 2019 Toyota Avalon might just be the sedan for you.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Toyota Avalon Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features on the upper trim levels could be added to the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Toyota Avalon stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Toyota Avalon features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat do not need to be scooted entirely forward.
