Toyota gave the Avalon some much-needed design enhancements in 2019, transforming it from a typical, cliched sedan aimed at retirees to a more sporty, eye-catching cruiser. Up front, a large grille is accented by either chrome or gloss black with mesh inserts, depending on the trim. It's flanked by sharp LED headlights which are underscored by deep lateral vents. The XSE Hybrid Nightshade Edition replaces the XSE Hybrid and comes with extended black exterior accents and wheels, including black window trim and door handles, a black rear spoiler, black grille, and smoked chrome bezels on the headlights. Dual exhaust tips are standard on gas models, although some models receive quad chrome tips. The hybrids get a hidden single outlet, and all models have LED taillights. A power moonroof is standard from the XSE Hybrid Nightshade trim upwards, but can be optioned on to XLE trims. Wheels range in size from 17 to 19 inches.
The Avalon is Toyota's flagship sedan and it slots into the full-size classification by virtue of its considerable dimensions. The sedan is 195.9 inches in length with 113 inches making up the wheelbase, while the width works out to 72.8 inches. All variants stand at 56.5 inches tall and ride 5.3 inches from the ground. Curb weight varies, too, ranging between 3,570 pounds on the lightest XLE trim to 3,715 lbs on the heftiest Touring.
