Full-size sedan segment is certainly one of the most interesting segments in the automotive industry. Toyota has its own model on the market, and it is called Avalon. Current version of Avalon has been on the market since 2015. New Toyota model was spotted during road testing. Although it was highly camouflaged, it was obvious that we are looking at new 2019 Toyota Avalon. Production of upcoming 2019 Avalon will be based on TNGA architecture. Besides new platform, future Avalon 2019 will also get new and improved features, as well as refreshed design. It looks like that camouflaged test model was not only longer than previous version, but it also has longer wheelbase. Speaking of 2019 Avalon design, it looks like it will still feature Toyota’s famous angular design. With a coupe-like roof-line, quad exhaust pipes at the back and longer front end, new Avalon looks pretty amazing. Inside the cabin, Toyota replaced old split-dashboard design with new wide center stack. Future Avalon for 2019 could also get big head-up display.
