Although nowadays, the sport utility vehicles dominate the market and buyers, especially families, are more interested into these types of cars, the Toyota manufacturer has a practical, and family-oriented sedan which we all know as the Toyota Avensis. However, a couple of years ago, precisely back in 2015, the rumors claimed that the Avensis will be discontinued because of the slow sales and other models which are more competitive. However, this might appear as the false information since the latest reports indicate that the carmaker is working of the new 2019 Toyota Avensis.
Furthermore, several photos have appeared on the Internet which makes us think that it is the upcoming Avensis wearing heavy camouflage. As well, based on these shots, there will be also a station wagon model in addition to the sedan version. We can also conclude that it will not be larger or smaller in size and will keep its recognizable profile. Of course, in order the make it more modern and fresh, the Japanese manufacturer will restyle it a bit. Under the hood, we could also expect some adjustments. As the matter of fact, the Avensis will probably get some new engine options. Inside the cabin, there will definitively be more tech features.
2019 Toyota Avensis engines and performances
The current model is powered by the 2.0-liter and a 1.8-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated units. However, according to the latest news, the newest 2019 Toyota Avensis will feature a new engine. It should be a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline powertrain. It will be available in three power options starting from 89 horses to around 150 hp.
On the other hand, there should be some changes in the diesel offering. So, the Avensis will probably get a 1.5-liter and a 2.0-liter engine too. Its output will be in a range from 115 to 190 horsepower. The engines should pair with a six-speed automatic transmission.
External appearance and design of the cabin
The upcoming 2019 Toyota Avensis should keep its familiar appearance which is rather handsome and attractive. However, in order to make it more competitive, the carmaker will probably refresh it with more muscular and modern lines. So, we could expect changes on the front fascia including revised grille and headlamps. On the rear, there should be new restyled headlamps and perhaps some new details. Dimensionally, the Avensis won’t change its size but it is going to be lighter. It is because of the usage of high-strength steel in its design and the new smaller engines under its hood.
Inside the cabin, the 2019 Toyota Avensis should stay the place of order and functionality. Its cabin is spacious which makes it popular among families mostly. Unfortunately, what will be new, it is still a mystery. However, what we can conclude is that it will definitively feature more standard equipment and advanced safety systems.
Release date and price
The exact release date of the 2019 Toyota Avensis is still not revealed. Its price should definitively be higher than the price of the current model.
