Even though the Toyota Avalon was first introduced all the way back in 1994 as the brand’s flagship sedan, its Hybrid counterpart wasn’t introduced until its fourth generation for the 2013 model year. Since then, it has been a great member of the lineup, offering a rare blend of impressive efficiency with premium luxury. This year, the Avalon enters its fifth generation, making the 2019 Toyota Avalon Hybrid in Moline IL the first official redesign for the Hybrid model.
Overall, the Avalon model has undergone extensive changes, including everything from its design to what kind of premium content is packed into the interior and everything else in between. New features include things like the JBL performance audio system and the 9” capacitive display audio screen. Of course, many old features return in the new model as well, including the Toyota Safety Sense P package and a host of others.
We put together the table just above to give you a better taste of just how improved the 2019 Avalon Hybrid is over its previous iteration, because when we say almost everything was redesigned we mean it. The brand-new Toyota Hybrid System II pairs a 650-volt electric motor with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, improving its power output by 15 horsepower while still improving fuel efficiency, by 3 miles to the gallon through the city and 5 mpg on the highway. Furthermore, the architectural changes mean more space for cargo, more specifically in the form of 2.1 cubic feet.
