Detroit 2018 – Fifth Generation Toyota Avalon

Toyota presented at the Detroit International Motor Show the fifth new generation Avalon sedan. The premium model now uses the new TNGA platform, the same being at the base of the new generation Camry.

Because Avalon now has a new architecture and a new multi-link suspension in the rear, the sedan reaches almost five meters in length, namely 4,978 mm, 18 mm more than the previous model.

The width increased by 15 mm to 1,849 mm, the height decreased by 25 mm to 1,435 mm, and the wheelbase increased by just 51 mm to a total of 2,870 mm, to the joy of rear passengers.

Toyota Avalon will have two propulsion units under the hood. The first will be a 3.5-liter gasoline V6 and will be coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The second would be a new technology 2.5-liter gasoline engine with dual VVT-i, VVT-iE and D-4S, which is part of the Toyota Hybrid System II.

The new Avalon will feature a rear-view camera, 10 airbags and lots of electronic assistants in the Toyota Safety Sense P package.
These include: adaptive cruise control, frontal collision avoidance system with automatic braking function and pedestrian recognition, dead angle monitoring system and bandwidth warning.

Among other facilities available for the new Avalon suspension we have active head-up display, which projects onto the windshield an image with a diagonal of 24.5 cm, and adaptive LED headlights.
