2019 Toyota Avalon First Drive

Brian Wong

For 2019, the Toyota Avalon sees huge changes. It doesn't just change a few things, it changes everything: from the platform to the engine to the exterior styling.

The Avalon's exterior styling has changed drastically — so much so that it would be impossible to confuse it for the 2018 model. Last year's model had this weird front two-part grille opening, which Toyota has combined for 2019 into what I call "one giant front-end air intake to rule them all."

The front looks are polarizing — even among our staff, there's disagreement over whether the Avalon is good-looking or going too far. What's less arguable is that from the sides and the rear, the car definitely is improved. Toyota stretched the cabin to give it more of a fastback look that makes the whole car look sleeker, and there are new LED taillights in back that stretch wide across the bumper and give the Avalon a good visual signature, especially at night.

One of our complaints about the old Avalon was that the interior didn't really make sense, especially in the center control panel. The screen was in a weird position at an off angle, and the storage spaces were a bit weirdly sized; for example, if you had a larger smartphone — like many of them are these days — it didn't quite fit on the wireless charging pad.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
