Ebrahim K. Kanoo, the sole distributor of Toyota vehicles in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has unveiled the all-new 2019 Toyota Avalon premium sedan at its showroom in Sitra.
Ebrahim K. Kanoo Senior Manager for Toyota Marketing; Mr. Ayman Shehadeh, commented: “The Avalon has always been a class leader in the mid-size premium sedan segment and this all-new redesign has given it a fresh and more luxurious sensation. I am confident that it will impress and attract people of all ages due to its daring design paired with a highly spacious, comfortable interior which comes with a host of new outstanding technology features. Toyota’s new architectural platform has also allowed designers to push boundaries and create something unique.”
Donning a cutting-edge design, the all-new 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.
Adding to its many class-leading features, the 2019 Avalon draws upon Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which represents an entirely new strategy to the way the company designs, engineers, and packages its vehicles, providing a comfortable and stable ride with superior handling characteristics. While retaining Toyota’s traditional values of superlative build quality and safety, the unique platform injects a fun driving experience that plays on all the senses. In addition, the new multi-link rear suspension allows for the enhancement of many performance attributes, such as a wider rear track, lower center of gravity, and an aggressive stance. Drivers can also adjust Avalon’s ride feel with the simple depression of a button – Normal mode prioritizes comfort, while Sport emphasizes handling with tauter, highly responsive footing without diminishing Avalon’s celebrated ride suppleness.
Complementing the all-new 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 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 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.
Striking a smooth connection between a stylish design, exquisite luxury, and greater convenience and comfort, the all-new Avalon’s cabin is accentuated with a range of advanced features, including an enhanced in-vehicle 9-inch multimedia display, a 10-inch colored and adjustable head-up display (HUD), wireless charging system for smartphones, ambient illumination, dual-zone automatic air conditioning system, 14-speaker JBL surround sound system, multi-adjustable power and ventilated front seats, as well as 60:40 split folding rear seats.
As with any other Toyota model, safety remains a top priority for the 2019 Avalon. The all-new vehicle’s foolproof safety system is complemented with Toyota Safety Sense, an advanced safety technology package that includes Pre-Collision System (PCS), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB).
