Underpinned by a Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform and powered and enhanced by a new fuel-efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine and a host of comfort and safety features that are complimented by Toyota Safety Sense, the 2020 Toyota Avalon embodies consumers’ overarching desire for high-caliber, design-centric, and technologically-savvy modes of attainable and premium transportation.
Since its debut in 1994 and subsequent evolution over four generations, the Avalon has come to be embraced by people around the world for its ride quality, comfortable and roomy interior space, as well as its high level of Quality, Durability, and Reliability (QDR). The car has established a strong presence in the premium mid-size sedan segment – both in the Middle East and globally – with total sales surpassing 1.5 million units.
Donning a cutting-edge design, Avalon expresses its distinguishable personality, while embodying Toyota’s next-generation ‘Under Priority’ brand identity – a direction that prioritizes aerodynamic efficiency, cooling, and pedestrian protection. Stunning all-LED slim projector headlights speak to its sportiness and elegance. They complement the front end’s design, highlighting the aluminum hood’s longitudinal lines and lightweight build; the wide, modern grilles built for air-slicing sleekness; tangential vents at its lower portion crafted for the effective direction of passing air across the front tires and along the Avalon’s muscular sides and the door handles that coincide with its profile’s bold character line. Simple horizontal character lines slice across the backside, at the top, center, and lower portions.
The Avalon’s width, in effect, is highlighted substantially by this distinct sectioning. Connected LED tail lamps shaped in a three-dimensional, ‘aero fin’ style differentiate the landscape from the current iteration. They integrate backup, stop, and turn lights into a single harmonious, fluid form.
Complementing the Avalon’s daring looks is a thrilling drive personality imbued by a new 3.5-liter V6 engine, which produces a maximum output of 298 hp and 356 Nm of torque and is equipped with the latest Direct Injection 4-Stroke Gasoline Engine Superior Version (D-4S) and Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide (VVT-iW) systems to achieve top-notch power performance, environmental performance, and fuel efficiency. The VVT-iW system helps the car to ensure high torque in all engine speed ranges and enable the Atkinson cycle to be used. The engine is also mated to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission that merges smooth, precise gear selection throughout the RPM range with an alacrity for fuel efficiency and on-demand power. Its revised logic control better matches with vehicle speed, engine speed, and torque engagement, and facilitates poised downshifts.
Available in eight distinctive exterior colors, the Avalon allows customers to express their individuality. Two newly-developed colors, Slate Gray and Blackish Brown, further express a premium feel with a sporty atmosphere. On the other hand, the interior comes in a total of three color schemes and with the choice of wood or hydrographic ornamentation depending on the grade. Furthermore, the 2019 Avalon has been rearmed with a newly-developed 17-inch alloy wheel. An 18-inch alloy wheel, finished in bright super chrome paint pursuing both a large impression and a high-class feeling, has also been made available.
